Darmian has suffered with being switched around the back line and he will be hoping that players such as Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw return as quickly as possible in order to stabilise the defence.
United rode their luck at times against Liverpool but they got the result and that’s all that matters.
The negativity that has surrounded the club in recent days has been hugely alleviated thanks to the win and attention will now turn to the game against Southampton next time out as United look to get their campaign back on track.
