Jose Mourinho was left unimpressed by his team on Sunday evening as they were well-beaten by the Reds, but there were a few Liverpool players who made a good impression.
One man specifically was picked out for praise by the United boss, as he called Andy Robertson ‘incredible’.
Mourinho: "I am tired just from looking at Robertson. Absolutely incredible."

He was perhaps hinting that some of his players should follow the Scot’s example, but to be fair, United did work quite hard too; they just weren’t good enough to ultimately challenge the Reds.
It does, though, show just how good Robertson is – he didn’t have one of his best games, but still left a huge impression on the opposing manager thanks to his endeavour and attitude.
He doesn’t get the plaudits that Sadio Mane, Mo Salah and the like get, but Robertson is an exceptional player.
