But Solskjaer claims in football you must be ready at all times. An intriguing way to react to such circumstances rather than use a book of excuses as would have happened under previous manager José Mourinho.

He added that they probably should have took Marcus Rashford off after an early foul by Jordan Henderson, which left the England international limping but he carried on until full-time.

That was “one of plenty” tough tackles they left in on Rashford, who Michael Owen suggested Liverpool should target and kick to the ankle during his half-time assessment of the match on BT Sport.

So, there you have it… one of Liverpool’s ambassador recommending horrid sportsmanship only for the players to carry out their duty by nailing Rashford whenever they could.

Solskjaer confirmed it was indeed Rashford’s ankle that took the knock. The Manchester United manager said it swelled like a balloon afterwards.
