Man United fans loved the way Ashley Young thwarted Mohamed Salah on Saturday

Manchester United fans are celebrating a vital victory over big rivals Liverpool after Jose Mourinho’s side won 2-1 against the Reds at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Strengthening their grip on second place in the English Premier League, United produced a disciplined performance to frustrate Jurgen Klopp’s outfit and pick up all three points.

The Red Devils surged ahead thanks to Marcus Rashford and then switched gears to defend expertly against their visitors’ frightening attacking talents.

Supporters had particular praise for the way Ashley Young defended against Mohamaed Salah, stopping the Egyptian sensation from adding to his 32-goal tally this season or even create a clear cut opportunity.

Young has been criticised in recent weeks, with many fans hoping to see Luke Shaw stake a claim for the left-back slot at United, but after his display against Liverpool, he’ll surely retain his place in Mourinho’s starting eleven.
