In a frenetic first half at Goodison Park, dominated by an industrious home side, Ramires Funes Mori had the best chance, steering a free header wide from an Everton corner.

After the break Liverpool were in the ascendancy, with Roberto Firmino denied when through on goal by Maarten Stekelenburg, who later went off injured.

Funes Mori had another headed chance but directed it straight at Simon Mignolet, while Stekelenburg’s replacement, Joel Robles, saved well from Firmino’s volley.

The winner came in the fourth minute of added time when Mane reacted fastest to Daniel Sturridge’s shot hitting a post.

        The wheels on the bus (Man United) may well be going round and round , but they’re due for a flat very soon and that’s when Jose Mourinho will have a monumental meltdown and blame the players.

        the guys had some set backs. Yet they are now playing better. Man U hasn’t lost since the 4-0 Chelsea butt kicking.

        When you spend the sort of money which Man United has done since the arrival of Jose Mourinho . The type of setbacks which take place should be a thing which you can overcome , not make excuses as the manager has done , by blaming your players . Mourinho remains conceited , narcissistic and a person lacking humility .

        As good a manager as Jose Mourinho is known to be , do you honestly believe he would be able to achieve the amount of success seen without the financial might of the clubs he has managed ?

        No- He has been blessed with clubs that have bucks. His downfall is that he never built a club from the ground up like Sir Alex and Arsène Wenger

        That is what I believe to be the true testament of being a great manager in the Premiership ! Until Mourinho shows me, he is capable of that , I will just consider him to be a manager in the right place , at the right time . Not unlike Jon Gruden who took the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to the Superbowl .

        It does take time and a great deal of patience . Some of the bigger clubs tend not to have this because their financial commitment is built upon chasing the success and more often than not making money. Simply look at Real Madrid and Manchester United . They’re among the most successful clubs in Europe and among the most profitable, but between these two clubs they have in excess of $4.5 billion of debt That is a staggering figure to say the very least and it’s easy to understand why UEFA wanted to change their regulations concerning the finances of all European sides competing in their competitions. Here’s the asinine part of this all, both United , Real Madrid and Barca have been given passes for another year (by 2018) to get their finances in order. Hardly fair to the other teams competing at the European or domestic level in the respective countries.

        They do have bucks. Sir Alex and Sir Bobby build clubs from the ground up. Money is important but not the sole focus.

        True enough , but look that the idiocy now taking place in terms of the astronomical transfer fees , never mind the salaries now being paid. There are perhaps only three players in the world of soccer actually worth the money paid or possible target price of $100 million . To my mind they are Gareth Bale (phenomenal player) , Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Everyone else just happens to be several layers below the three in terms of talent and leadership ability .

        Highest paid athletes in the world . In the world of soccer .

        It all starts with the major hierarchies of soccer within the game. Until they start to rein the madness , then the escalating salaries and continued debt of the teams will continue to exacerbate relentlessly .
