GETTY Danny Ings believes he is good enough to break into Liverpool’s fearsome front three

Danny Ings Liverpool

Rashford made his first start since Boxing Day on Saturday, coming back into the starting lineup with a bang, scoring two goals as United beat bitter rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Liverpool entered Saturday's match against Manchester United as the Premier League's in-form side, having outperformed Manchester City in 2018 and looking likely to finish next best to them in the final table.

Rashford scored twice to put hosts United into a healthy lead against Liverpool, before Erick Bailly's own-goal brought the visitors back into it.

Papastathopoulos has been scouted by United and would apparently cost around £20m, while Alderweireld would be a considerably more expensive option, though he's obviously proven in the Premier League.

"Perfect result. I wouldn't go so far as saying it was a flawless performance".

With Marouane Fellaini rejecting a new contract at United and Michael Carrick retiring at the end of the season, it would be understandable for Mourinho to look for reinforcements in the midfield.

Neither Hamdallah nor Faraj were among those injured in the incident, and the Prime Minister continued his schedule as planned. The top Palestinian Authority officials made the rare trip from the West Bank for the inauguration of a desalination plant.

"We have to defend these situations better. But you can't cross the line and come on the pitch", West Ham manager David Moyes said. "In training is where I'm doing most of my learning".

"But if you go to his numbers and how many matches he played with me last season and this, I would say probably he's in the top five players with more matches in the two seasons".

"I would argue that if Klopp's Liverpool team were a little more streetwise, they would have got at least a draw out of the game, but they are too honest for their own good at times. You can always lose a header or a challenge with Lukaku of course but there is a gap in behind and we need to close that", he said.

In the North East, Newcastle United secured a 3-0 victory over Southampton to move five points clear of the bottom three, piling the pressure on Saints boss Mauricio Pellegrino.

The central defensive position had been a troublesome area for Klopp but the former Southampton man has slotted straight into the side and the improvements are clear to see.
