Adam felt the Reds were worthy victors and was pleased with his role in Maxi Rodriguez's 33rd minute strike.
He told liverpoolfc.tv: "It's one of these things when we are told to press. Fortunately I got it and Maxi did well to finish it. We then did well to bounce back after conceding early in the second half.
"It's not a scalp because we are two big clubs chasing each other. We are in a good position and know it could be better if we'd got other results. But we are happy with the win."
He added: "It was difficult because they are a good side. They have top players but we've got good players ourselves and I thought we were terrific today. It was a good way to bounce back after a difficult couple of weeks. The result at home to Swansea was hard to take but you have to do that when you come to places like this if you want to do well."
