Rashford and Co.
After three consecutive victories in a row, Liverpool FC Liverpool lost to arch-rival Manchester United in a bitter away defeat and missed the jump to second place.
Manchester United has celebrated a 2-1 win over FC Liverpool, securing second place in the Premier League ahead of the Reds.
After three victories in series, Jürgen Klopp has to digest this bitter bankruptcy against his arch-rival and now fears losing third place to Tottenham (58 points) in the fight for the Champions League places (read the game in the TICKER).
The two Germans Loris Karius and Emre Can were in the starting eleventh, but remained relatively pale.
ManUnited’s home-grown Marcus Rashford (14th/24th minute of play), on the other hand, won the match with his two goals worth seeing (Premier League table).
In the first half, Liverpool were also lucky not to fall behind Juan Mata in the 38th minute. I almost scored a dream goal in the second minute.
Alexis Sanchez fled from the left into the penalty area, where neither Virgil van Dijk nor Dejan Lovren were with Mata.
The Spaniard stood there on his own and narrowly missed the goal with his side pullers (schedule/results of the Premier League)
The goal for Klopp’s rather unhappy team was also an own goal.
Sadio Mane scored a sharply shot cross on the left side of the 16: Eric Bailly wanted to clear up, but the ball jumped from his heel into the short corner to 1:2.
There was no chance for goalkeeper David de Gea.
