Mamadou Sakho was all smiles with Liverpool’s goal-scorer Daniel Sturridge after Thursday night’s 2-0 victory over Manchester United.

The hosts made the breakthrough in the first half when Daniel Sturridge beat David De Gea from the penalty spot after Nathaniel Clyne was brought down by Memphis Depay.

Liverpool midfielders Adam Lallana and Philippe Coutinho wasted great opportunities to double the home side’s lead before half-time.

However, Roberto Firmino handed the Reds a commanding 2-0 first-leg lead at Anfield after a close-range finish with 17 minutes remaining of the first leg.

And France international Sakho, who partnered Dejan Lovren at centre-half for the visit of the Red Devils, posted a dressing room selfie with Sturridge after their emphatic performance.

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