Jose Mourinho's comments on Andy Robertson after Liverpool 3-1 Manchester United

Liverpool FC v Manchester United - Premier League

Liverpool are back to the top of the Premier League after beating Manchester United 3-1 at Anfield.

In truth, Jurgen Klopp’s side fully deserved the three points after dominating their arch-rivals throughout the 90 minutes.

After a scintillating start, Sadio Mane finally gave the home side the lead after 24 minutes.

Fabinho’s beautiful lofted pass caught Ashey Young out and Mane nipped in to fire past David de Gea.

But it was all square at half-time.

Alisson fumbled Romelu Lukaku’s cross, allowing Jesse Lingard to stab home.

However, it was normal service resumed after the beak as all the traffic headed towards the Kop.

But it wasn’t until Xherdan Shaqiri came on that Liverpool went back ahead.

The substitute scored two deflected efforts within 10 minutes of coming off the bench to give Liverpool a brilliant 3-1 win.

Shaqiri may have been the match-winner but it was another Liverpool player that caught Jose Mourinho’s eye.

Rather surprisingly, Mourinho decided to praise Liverpool’s Andy Robertson in his post-match press conference.

“I am still tired looking at Andy Robertson. He makes 100 sprints per minute. Absolutely incredible,” Mourinho said of Liverpool’s left-back," Mourinho said.

The £8 million Liverpool paid for the Scot is looking more of a bargain with every passing match.

And it wasn't just Robertson that Mourinho was praising. He even called Liverpool's intensity "fantastic."

“They are a strong team, they have shown they are the strongest team. But it is hard to concede the goals in the manner," Mourinho admitted.

“(First twenty minutes) We couldn’t cope with their fantastic intensity and speed.”
