Manchester United must win to advance in UCL

Ander Herrera Premier League Champions League trade

There was at Selhurst Park (United's 3-2 win over Crystal Palace) last week, and that spirit carried forward onto Saturday (2-1 win over Liverpool).

Marcus Rashford scored a pair of first-half goals as United opened up a four-point lead in second on the table, while Liverpool fell to fourth.

This might not be as big for the fans, but this is as big as Saturday in terms of it being huge for them to be in Champions League quarter-finals.

He told Liverpool's official website: "We have to respond, 100 per-cent". I don't feel that we have any advantage in this moment.

"If I finished the session one minute before it wouldn't have happened", the Portuguese manager added. "It's really hard to take".

Martial has sat out the last two games, but is set to be available for selection in the Champions League decider against Sevilla.

The expectations created by United's illustrious name and their roster of big name players far exceeded the actual level of their performance in Andalusia.

"The mistakes were obvious", he acknowledged. It doesn't work like this.

In the second half - in my opinion it was Liverpool controlling with the ball and United controlling without the ball. We didn't, so that was the problem around the two goals [and] they could use these situations.

"Of course not. He's a player we trust". Although Liverpool had 68% possession, they did little with it - mustering only two shots on goal. We don't ignore the goals we conceded, but if you ignore them for a second you would say, "OK, that's how you have to play". It is a very important game for us.

"Things this manager wants are becoming more clear to me".

"Because we put pressure on ourselves obviously, that is not helpful for your confidence if you are 2-0 down at Manchester".

However, I can see him having another frustrating evening, knowing he's not got the supply or support to show his potential, and will be left day dreaming of playing against Barca for Real Madrid next season.

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford does not need verbal assurance from his manager about his importance to the team and said he is not anxious despite limited time on the pitch in the current Premier League campaign.

The Reds boss was quickly sent back to his technical area by fourth official Martin Atkinson, while referee Craig Pawson was also made aware of the incident but chose to take no action.

"You don't just keep time after time say "right, I'm going to fight, eventually I'm going to win". The accusation was levelled after a 0-0 draw at Liverpool in October but, while the game was frustrating to watch and stalled momentum, a goalless draw at Anfield was a not a bad result.
