Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has praised four stars that helped overcome Liverpool at Old Trafford during Saturday's Premier League clash.

Marcus Rashford scored twice on his recall to the starting XI to give Mourinho's side the points despite a largely defensive display in which they had just 32% of possession and two shots on target.

"He [Rashford] scored two goals in a big match against a top class opponent. So of course he was fundamental and the good thing was the first chance he had he got it, he scored because I think the last few months that was not happening with him and he was feeling that a little bit in terms of self-confidence.

"But today, big game, probably unexpected, we trusted him, we felt the game could be adapted to his qualities.

"He's improving a lot in training and sometimes that's the point, media, fans, in relation to options, you are not at the training ground, you don't see what is going on.

"You don't see how well or bad players are training, the self-confidence, the mood, the feeling and the feeling with him was that he was really improving a lot in the past few weeks.

"I want to praise obviously every player but I go to Marouane, because knee surgery returned before time, he did a fantastic work to recover outside the club with people of his trust, he arrived to train a couple of days ago and made himself available to play. Before the game I asked him how many minutes do you have for me? He told me the minutes he wanted." said Mourinho as quoted in The Express

Romelu Lukaku also enjoyed himself against Liverpool and put in an impressive showing against the Reds, playing an important role in both of Rashford’s goals.
