Mourinho happy with 'controlled' Manchester United performance vs Liverpool

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE Champions League quarter-final draw how and where to watch times

Former Liverpool star David Thompson has pointed the finger at Reds boss Jurgen Klopp and his management team, arguing that the club's first eleven are just as good as Manchester City's.

"Ours is lacking and our on the spot decisions are lacking in the big, big games - that's where it matters".

Some might suggest Mourinho is past it but with two trophies in his first year and now sitting five points ahead of third-placed Liverpool in the Premier League, things are on the up at United.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said that he was happy with his team's "always in control" performance versus cross town rivals Liverpool.

The Portuguese added: "I try to give the best to the kids, education". It is also a big test for Liverpool's defence and how Virgil van Dijk controls Romelu Lukaku. If they win, they'll probably get second, but if Liverpool do I think they'll definitely end up finishing as runners-up.

We've seen him score on his Premier League, Champions League, Europa League, FA Cup and League Cup debut - he's just such a natural talent.

It was an important afternoon at the bottom of the table too, with West Ham United slipping to a damaging 3-0 home defeat by Burnley to leave them three points above the relegation zone.

Others have noticed it, including John Keim of Cousins tagged both the Vikings and the Jets in the post. As for the sixth overall pick, the Jets are better off doing what they did previous year and building the roster.

I thought it was unusual playing Firmino in midweek as he looks exhausted now and while he might start nice and sharp, I think his impact will have lessened.

"He plays for United many matches, he starts some, comes from the bench for others".

"The fans they can do what they want".

Both teams are effectively playing for second, with Man City a massive 18 points head of Liverpool at the top of the league.

It will be a good test of how Virgil Van Dijk, who has strolled through some games without having a hard time, will get on against a much tougher test with United's attacking power and pace.
