Defeat, though, leaves United sixth on 26, 11 points away from the fourth Champions League qualification slot with manager Jose Mourinho, who had left France midfielder Paul Pogba on the bench, accepting that was the best his side could now hope for.

United said they wanted fans going to the game at Anfield "to support the team in a passionate and positive way".

Highlights from Liverpool's 3-1 win over Manchester United in the Premier League.

Hazard set up two goals in Chelsea's 2-0 win over Manchester City last weekend, leading Sarri to keeping him as the team's deep-lying central striker at Brighton.

Young cleared Dejan Lovren's effort off the line and Firmino shot over - the ninth attempt inside 20 minutes - before the breakthrough was made.

But a summer of investment has granted Klopp the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri to introduce to change the course of games, allowing Liverpool to push forward even more in search of another vital win.
