Man United 2 – Liverpool 1
Second place in the Premier League is now Man United’s to lose.
Liverpool were 2-down as Marcus Rashford stole the show.
Rashford, on his first start since Boxing Day, broke the deadlock with a fabulous solo effort from a Romelu Lukaku flick on.
The England international was on hand to slam home a second before the interval after more good work from Lukaku in the build up.
In the second half Liverpool put in a far more spirited performance, and they got on the board when Eric Bailly put a cross in his own net.
But Liverpool couldn’t find the leveller as United moved five points clear for the Reds.

Dear Mother. I write with news from the front. Morale is high. My men have been well supplied. We even have fresh socks to fend off trench foot. I strive to inspire them with my leadership. Even the sulky new little one named Alexis. Please send love to Sis. With fondness. Jose
