Utd hold on after Rashford double

Marcus Rashford's first-half double inspired Manchester United to a crucial 2-1 victory over rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford on Saturday.  The England forward's thunderous drive fired United into the lead on 14 minutes - his first Premier League goal since December 10 - and he doubled his tally with a deflected second 10 minutes later.

Eric Bailly's 66th-minute own goal handed an improved Liverpool a route back into the game but United withstood a late onslaught to secure their first victory over their rivals since January 2016.
