Rashford on 'right track' at United

Pogba, who was surprisingly named on the bench for the goalless first leg, was not alone in missing training at the Aon Training Complex.

As the only Mancunian in Mourinho's side Rashford knew what it meant and soaked up the atmosphere in his celebration. "Martial is fit yes".

Two goals from Marcus Rashford helped United to a 2-1 win over Klopp's side at Old Trafford - but the Liverpool manager found himself in trouble after racing 20 metres down the touchline to remonstrate with his player Dejan Lovren.

"To win the Champions League would be enormous for us". Asked if United have the potential to go all the way this season, Mourinho was cautious. Jose Mourinho's side trail runaway leaders Manchester City by 13 points with eight games left in their campaign.

"He doesn't have to (speak to me)", said the forward.

With Marouane Fellaini rejecting a new contract at United and Michael Carrick retiring at the end of the season, it would be understandable for Mourinho to look for reinforcements in the midfield. "It's something you have to accept", Carrick said.

Of course, if there was any team in the league other than runaway league leaders Manchester City capable of coming back from a 2-0 deficit, it's Liverpool. But you've got to always work hard, and he does.

"It's kind of been sorted", added Carrick.

The France global is still nursing a knock which kept him out of a clash with Liverpool and may now be absent in the Champions League. The 0-0 draw (in the first leg) was not a good performance, but it was a good result.

The Red Devils have conceded just three goals in their seven Champions League games this season. "Maybe with him he would learn how to lose".

At the press conference, Mourinho also launched a stinging attack on Dutchman Frank de Boer after the former Crystal Palace coach criticised United's sparse use of Marcus Rashford. But the Portuguese disputes the idea that Rashford is being held back under his charge.

"Right now, I'm probably not learning the most on the pitch", said the former academy graduate, who hopes to play a key role for England at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Tottenham Hotspur's South Korean striker Son Heung-Min (C) celebrate with teammates after scoring his second goal, their third during the English Premier League football match between Bournemouth and Tottenham Hotspur at the Vitality Stadium in Bournemouth, southern England on March 11, 2018.

'Marcus is having these experiences.

"Lately, he wasn't happy when we lost matches with him but he's a guy with great maturity, with great attitude and we couldn't be happier".

"The dream of Manchester United is to be the top team and win the title but to do it we are going to have to make up a lot of points".

It remains to be seen what role, if any, Pogba plays in those fixtures as is going to be short of match sharpness.

"We saw Tottenham players getting penalties at Anfield a few weeks back after falling over in the box, but Salah made a decision to stay on his feet and the referee then chose to give nothing".

"We are going to put everything into this game because of its significance but also because there is an worldwide break coming up, so we will have an opportunity to recover after".
