Utd's Rashford not fazed by spell out of team

Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho has defended the form of Alexis Sanchez

"He scored two goals in a big match against a top-class opponent", Mourinho said.

"In modern football you have to live day-by-day, week-by week and match-by-match", he said. In the first half, the game gave us the opportunity to be direct, fast and score goals, more than we did.

Jesse Lingard, a late substitute, also echoed the manager's sentiment. At the end, we could still get a point but the first half wasn't really good from us.

Manchester United had the ideal start against Liverpool at Old Trafford with Marcus Rashford's double putting the Red Devils 2-0 up at half-time.

Rashford definitely has the potential to be one of the best players in the world and if he continues to develop at his current rate, he'll have a long career at Manchester United.

Given the opposition, Saturday saw as impressive a Manchester United display as we have seen for some time and it was achieved without him.

"They didn't have a lot of moments but when they did they were really unsafe so we could have done better as a team".

Given that, the former Arsenal man needs to be taken out the firing line and learn to get used to his new teammates because right now he is becoming a liability with the way he loses the ball in key areas.

San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard could return this week
Leonard (quadriceps) hopes to return for Thursday's contest against New Orleans, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Leonard has missed all but nine games this season for a Spurs team that is fifth in the Western Conference at 37-28.

"The manager doesn't have to (speak to me)", the 20-year-old told the club's website.

Son was entrusted to move into the centre-forward role once Kane departed, and showed he can deputise for Spurs' talisman with his sixth and seventh goals in his last four games to take his tally for the season to 18.

Paul Pogba missed the Liverpool game after picking up an injury in training on Friday, and Mourinho is uncertain whether the France global will be available against Sevilla.

Challenges were flying in from the outset and composure was in short supply but Mourinho felt that mood to the game helped his side. He was upset with a player and the same happened to me against Crystal Palace where I was upset with my player and therefore they (the officials) understood that too.

"We won't stop", he said. "Of course we are not that far behind in our development".

"If you are in Manchester you need a little bit of luck or help with right decisions, not wrong decisions".

The £89 million midfielder missed out on this game because of an injury sustained in training on Friday, yet his absence was not an issue for United against Liverpool.
