Countdown: Liverpool's top five performers against Tottenham

Salah: We are giving everything to win the title

Salah: We are giving everything to win the title

Speaking to ESPN reporter João Castelo Branco, Moura was first asked if Tottenham deserved at least a draw at Anfield.

"I don't think today is the toughest game for Liverpool", Neville said on the Gary Neville Podcast after Liverpool's 2-1 win over Spurs. But at this level, we can't fail.

Put that all together: a team that historically scores late goals, a group of players who will run through brick walls until the final whistle for their manager, and a home support that is virtually proven to spur the team forward, and the mystery as to why Liverpool have enjoyed so much luck this season is practically solved. "What I feel in the team is that everyone is quite comfortable with the situation we're in", the midfielder told Liverpoolfc.com.

"Now we are back and we start with a win, I think it's very important". We have to raise our heads, keep working. Now we can't fail again. "Let's go to the next one".

"We are at Southampton on Friday and Liverpool will start as favourites, but those games can be tougher than this type of game, when everybody is up for it, the fans, the players, and it's an obvious hard opponent".

Fourth-placed Tottenham are tied on points with Manchester United in fifth and Chelsea are a point further back in sixth. It's a new history. "It's a big challenge for us to continue in this way".

"This is a very, very good sign and I think everything is possible so let's do it and win it".

Klopp's praise of Tottenham gives a clue about how relieved he will have been to have escaped Anfield with all three points against a side he was so impressed by in the lead-up to the game and who really came into proceedings in the second half.

Over the next 20 minutes, Liverpool went all out, but Tottenham were calm under pressure and nearly caught them on the counter-attack, but a risky 2-on-1 opportunity ended with Mousa Sissoko firing the ball into the stands.

And they found one when Egyptian star Salah - largely ineffective up to that point - peeled off at the back post to meet a cross in the 90th minute, heading the ball goalwards, where Spurs 'keeper Hugo Lloris could only parry it into defender Toby Alderweireld, with the ball then rolling into the net.

Mauricio Pochettino's side now face Crystal Palace on Wednesday, and then change tournaments as they prepare to play Manchester City in the first leg of the Champions League's quarterfinals.
