Manchester United stars joined fans in ecstatic celebrations at Anfield as Manchester United beat Liverpool 1-0 on Sunday.

Phil Jones, Michael Carrick and Marcos Rojo opted to watch United’s Premier League clash with their bitter rivals from the stands at the home of their bitter rivals.

The injured trio stood among travelling supporters in the Anfield Road Stand as a late Wayne Rooney goal was enough to secure three points for Louis van Gaal’s team

Phil Jones was ruled out of the game with an ankle injury, but seemed to be showing no signs of the knock as he jumped up and down with jubilant fans.

Carrick and Rojo were less conspicuous during the match but were pictured on social media in the immediate aftermath of United’s fourth consecutive league win over Liverpool.
