Sadio Mane speaking to Sky Sports: "We played great football today, we created many chances and deserved to win.
"We never gave up, everyone was more focused than ever." Virgil van Dijk: "It was a fully deserved victory, we had the bigger chances.
"They were pretty dangerous sometimes on the break. In the first-half we were going a lot through the middle, but they were wining balls and dangerous at times.
"But we dominated the game, we were prepared, we were ready for the fight."
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho on Sky Sports: "They are the strong team, but it's hard to concede two goals in the moment we conceded and the way the goals happened.
"Our difficult moment was the first 20 minutes. We couldn't cope with their fantastic intensity and pressing, but then we were quite calm and it was controlled.
"They became really frustrated when their centre-backs came forwards and fired shots into the stands - that was the period when it was more in control.
"There were two easy goals for Shaqiri and because of the deflections there was no chance.
"If you speak about fortunate you speak about their second and third goals."
Well, be fair. They were always going to drop points; they didn't lose ground to their rivals - Everton and Bournemouth both dropped points, though Wolves are sniffing around now. Should be a big game when they play them.
It's good that we beat United, though. Probably one of the better midtable sides.
What a game! Just what a game! Class above them, well and truly owned them - Our manager, players, fans are just the best. Buzzing!
The bogey team and bogey manager out of the way as well.. We ain't fading away this time!! #Believers
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho on Sky Sports asked if he can "fix" their current situation: "What do you mean by fix? Win the title? Of course not.
"We can still finish fourth. It's not easy. For sure we are going to finish in the top six. Best we can get is fourth. Now we look to the fifth and then later the fourth."
What a great match. We so easily and marvelously controlled anything they had to offer. Fabinho was immense, so composed and anticipated everything. He passing was unexpectedly brilliant. His assist on the Mane goal was huge. Shaq brought such energy and direct movement into the final third. What a fantastic signing. And Mane’s beautiful goal should not be forgotten…what a fantastic take and strike.
Allison’s slip was unfortunate, but the difference in this team is belief. Gone are the days that one mistake seems to wreck the mentality and focus of the rest of the team. They put that goal aside in mature fashion and continued to stamp their dominance on the pitch.
While that may not be the most important win of the season, it was certainly the most satisfying.
