Manchester United have tightened their grip on second place in the Premier League courtesy of a 2-1 win over Liverpool at Old Trafford this afternoon.

The 170th league meeting between the arch-rivals was decided by a Marcus Rashford brace, netting twice in 10 first-half minutes to move the Red Devils five points clear of their opponents.

Eric Bailly sent the ball into his own net 24 minutes from time to give Liverpool hope, but the in-form Merseysiders failed to register any further attempts as they fell to just a third defeat in 28 matches.
