"If people don't think we deserved it, I don't care", Mourinho said.

Nemanja Matic believes victory against bitter rivals Liverpool is a timely boost ahead of Manchester United's biggest game of the season against Sevilla. Liverpool has not beaten Manchester United in the Premier League since March 16, 2014, just weeks before the end of the David Moyes era at United. The win will mean the Champions League quarterfinals.

Sevilla are the visitors on Tuesday evening (Wednesday morning AEDT), when United will seek to progress to the last eight of the UEFA Champions League after a 0-0 draw in the first leg. They will be eliminated if the Spanish club manage a scoring draw, while Brighton visit on Saturday for the Cup quarter-final.

Rashford was without a Premier League goal since December, but his two against Liverpool took him to 12 in all competitions this season to make it his most productive campaign in front of goal. But nothing is decided yet.

Sanchez was signed in a swap deal that reportedly made him the Premier League's best-paid player but the Chile global has scored just one goal in eight United appearances, well below his career strike rate.

The result was the first time Jose Mourinho or Klopp have got one over each other on English soil, the three previous league games between the two having been drawn.

Trump also supports a ban on bump stocks, devices that allow weapons to fire like machine guns. The NRA has long argued for more armed security in U.S. schools, a plan Trump has advocated.

The victory against Liverpool follows previous league wins against Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham, yet Mourinho shrugged off their importance.

"No. That's something that we can develop and we're going to develop with time, with experience and living these experiences together", said the manager.

"That's modern football - you have to live in the moment and cope with it".

Although the Reds played admirably in the second half and halved the deficit when Sadio Mane's cross was turned into his own goal by Eric Bailly, they could not go on to find an equaliser.

Jesse Lingard, a late substitute, also echoed the manager's sentiment. His status as one of the game's greats was demonstrated again as United overcame Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool side 2-1 at Old Trafford yesterday.

Cristiano Ronaldo was on the scoresheet twice for Real Madrid to help them to a 2-1 win over Eibar in a tightly-fought encounter that the minnows nearly secured a point from before being undone by an 84th minute victor from the Portuguese maestro. "The win puts us in a good position in the league, but we have still got a long way to go so we need to keep pushing". It is the forward's first prolonged spell out of the team since making a blistering start to his career in 2016.
