Michael Owen warned Manchester United that their season is all but over after Thursday night’s 2-0 defeat by Liverpool at Anfield.

The Reds made the breakthrough in the first half when Daniel Sturridge beat United goalkeeper David De Gea from the penalty spot after Nathaniel Clyne was fouled marginally inside the area by Dutch winger Memphis Depay.

Liverpool midfielders Adam Lallana and Philippe Coutinho wasted great opportunities to extend the hosts’s lead in the first leg of their last-16 tie before half-time.

However, Roberto Firmino handed the Reds a commanding 2-0 first-leg lead at Anfield following good work by Jordan Henderson and Lallana.

Former Liverpool and United striker Owen insisted that it was a fair result given the home side’s dominance.

Liverpool’s 2-0 win was their first victory over their bitter rivals United in four attempts.
