Robertson reveals Liverpool fed off Henderson energy during Man Utd triumph

Liverpool ace Andy Robertson says the team fed off Jordan Henderson's intensity against Manchester United.

The Reds skipper was dominant in the midfield as his team ran out 4-0 winners at Anfield.

"From minute one, I think we were on top, high energy," Robertson told the club's website.

"Off the ball, I thought we were special, I thought we were incredible. Hendo set the tone.

"Hendo set the tone [in the] first five, 10 minutes with his pressing and with his high energy, and I think everyone just kind of followed suit. That's what a captain does, and Hendo's done it many a time for us and he did it again. I think we all just fed off his energy.

"Obviously we just went for it. Our counter-press was on such a high level and put them under pressure, and the goals weren't too bad as well."
