Liverpool fans love "sick man" Robertson for wanting Reds to score more after 5

Liverpool thumped Manchester United 5-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday night – and the Reds faithful loved Andy Robertson's ruthless demand during the game.

Jurgen Klopp's men battered their bitter rivals from pillar to post, storming into a resounding 4-0 lead inside the first half.

Naby Keita and Diogo Jota put them 2-0 ahead, before Mohamed Salah stole the show by firing in a hat-trick – which he completed after the interval to seal the five-goal rout.

After the Egyptian netted Liverpool's fifth goal of the game, Robertson could be seen urging his team-mates to "keep going" and "be ruthless" despite the heavy scoreline.

Kop fans quickly took to Twitter to wax lyrical about the order, insisting it speaks volumes about his mentality.

One wrote: "Robbo you mentality monster".

Another commented: "You see why I love Robbo. He's not soft *laughing emoji* other players are always playing nice."
