Liverpool can beat any team, says Mane ahead of Manchester United clash

Van Dijk backed to contain fellow £75m man Lukaku by Liverpool legend Hamann

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

England worldwide Rashford scored twice for United in their 2-1 victory over Liverpool on Saturday, having made his first start since Boxing Day.

It was a scoreline that Liverpool couldn't recover from, despite Eric Bailly's own goal in the second-half.

"We needed to try to break them down but it wasn't good enough".

Two first half goals in nearly identical fashion from Marcus Rashford ultimately inflicted defeat on Klopp's side at Old Trafford, despite a spirited second half performance.

"We have to defend these situations better".

The draw will take place on Friday 16 March at 11.00am GMT in Nyon, Switzerland, two days after the completion of the final last-16 ties.


"You can be in control without having the ball, you can be in trouble when you have the ball".

Klopp will be confident after getting to rest his goal-scoring talisman Mohamed Salah in the Champions League draw with Porto in midweek.

"I don't feel we have any advantage in this moment".

Moreover, back in 2016, United legend Paul Scholes had also stated: "You've not seen any yet, but Rashford hits free kicks in a dipping fashion, nearly the way Cristiano Ronaldo does". I said that before the Liverpool match when many of you were maybe not expecting him to start. Of course he was fundamental. It's a game where the first goal is massive, but Liverpool score and have plenty of pace in the team.

"The last few months it was not happening for him and he was feeling it a bit in terms of confidence. He is improving a lot in training", said the Portuguese manager.

"It's a pity that the manager is Mourinho because normally he's an English player, you want to give him time and he can then make mistakes", De Boer told BT Sport.

And it seems Liverpool are in no mood to let the player leave on the cheap, after reportedly telling the Spanish giants they want £160m (€180m) for the winger. I am not upset at all with that reaction (to the substitution). "That was the bad one".
