Man United showed us respect, Liverpool's Robertson says

Liverpool fullback Andrew Robertson has said Manchester United showed them some respect with how they approached the game.

Man United approached the home game against their arch-rivals with caution and the Scotland international feels that was a show of respect rather than underrating the Reds. The two most successful Premier League sides played to an all 0-0 draw with the point earned enabling Liverpool to reclaim top spot.

"It's a sign of respect but as a team, I think we need to start respecting ourselves. Big teams like Bayern and Manchester United are full of world-class stars and they changed their way of playing to try to stop us. We need to take that as a mark of respect and not shy away from it, stand up to that and show them why there is respect." Roberston said.

Man United were forced to make three changes as Juan Mata, Ander Herrera and Jesse Lingard were forced to end their time on the pitch with injuries. Liverpool saw  Roberto Firmino go out too and the Scotland captain says four injuries in a very competitive game is unheard of.

"Four substitutions in the first half is unheard of in a game like that and the ones that went off were struggling. We need to deal with that better because the game still was on and when the game stopped it kind of killed our momentum and we had to go again. We should have been at full throttle after all the pauses in the game. We need to work on that." he added.

The 0-0 draw enabled Man United's David De Gea record his 100th Premier League clean sheet.
