Reds’ win puts them above Everton in the table.
Liverpool head coach Brendan Rodgers thinks that Sunday’s Premier League win over Champions League chasing Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield shows that the Reds are showing gradual signs of improvement under the Northern Irishman’s management this season.
The come from behind victory on Merseyside against the in-form north Londoners was Liverpool’s third in a row, the first time that the club have achieved that feat since Rodgers took over as boss from Kenny Dalglish last summer, and the first time that the Reds have recorded such a stat since May 2011.
Meanwhile, it was also the only occasion this campaign that Liverpool have managed to overcome a side ranked higher than them in the Premier League standings, having previously failed to see off the collective challenges of the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Tottenham, Chelsea, Arsenal, Everton or West Bromwich Albion, a fact that was not lost on Rodgers.
“All season people have spoken about us not beating anyone from the top 10, then it was the top eight and top six and top four,” said Rodgers in his post-match press conference.
“The game against Spurs was a stringent test and they came through it.”
