Goals in each half from Fabio Borini and Rickie Lambert gave Liverpool an important victory which lifts them to seventh in the Premier League, just four points off fourth place at time of writing.
“It was always going to be a difficult game – they’re a very hard team to break down but I thought we were very complete today in our performance,” he said.
“We passed the ball really well. At times our counter-attack was very good and we probably should have exploited that more.
“Importantly, when we had to defend we stood up to the challenge and got another clean sheet. It was a fantastic win for us.”
