Dejan Lovren says Sunday’s win over Tottenham Hotspur was massive for Liverpool.
The Reds came from behind to win 2-1 thanks to Jordan Henderson and Mohamed Salah.
The victory restored their six point lead at the top of the table.
“We knew it would be a tough game, even though they didn’t have brilliant results in the last couple of games,” Lovren told Liverpool’s website.
“We knew it would be tough and unfortunately they scored in the first minute, but we kept our nerve, played our game and we had many chances.
“We came in at half-time and the boss said: ‘Usually I never say this, but I am satisfied even though we are 1-0 down. But we need to continue like that and keep our nerve’.
“We knew we would have another chance and we did it. It’s a massive, massive win.”
