Speaking after Mourinho admitted Champions League qualification was the best he could hope for, Keane told Sky Sports: 'The scary bit is when he talks and says they can finish fourth.

"I'm in a good way and I want to help this club to try to achieve a lot of things and we are in a good way".

"We saw the line up of United and their quality - how organised they were and they fight from the back. With Herrera, Matic and Lingard [in midfield] we lose some qualities but we gain aggression and simplicity - that's what we need to play against a fast team like Liverpool".

Liverpool returned to the top of the Premier League table with a deserved 3-1 win over rivals Manchester United on Sunday afternoon, and after the game fans were quick to praise their match victor on social media. "They are top of the league, they have this feeling of - I know that feeling well - the feeling of the "lucky ones" where everything goes in your direction". After that we scored and we were calm and controlled, they had more of the game in our half but they were frustrated because of our centre halves, they were shooting from 30 metres. Today we played with different players and the team maintained the same level which is the most important.

"They are a strong team, they showed they have the strongest team, but it's hard to concede the two goals we did in this moment, even harder the way the goals happened".

"Against Napoli, other teammates played and they did very well". Man United folklore with a crucial late double, after Sadio Mane and Jesse Lingard has earlier exchanged goals. "After that we were quite comfortable in the game, it was controlled".

"It was really nice and I think absolutely deserved".

United barely offered an attacking threat but were frustrating Liverpool until Klopp introduced Shaqiri with less than 20 minutes remaining, with devastating effect.

"Shaq is such a skilled boy, he has to make an impact forward".

Discussing the game, Klopp said: "Over the moon about the performance".

Eden Hazard set up the first goal for Pedro after 17 minutes and scored the second himself before halftime following a defensive error. "Fantastic pass, super control, flawless finish".
