Liverpool defender Martin Kelly is convinced there's plenty of positives to draw from their stalemate with Tottenham.

Kelly feels on another day Kenny Dalglish's side might have been celebrating a victory had they enjoyed a bit more fortune in front of Brad Friedel's goal.

"We had our chances and could have closed the game off and got the three points, but it wasn't to be," the full-back told after his first league start since October.

"We defended well. You have to give Tottenham respect because they are a great side, but I think we had the better chances.

"Especially in the second half, we created quite a few chances but that's just football sometimes. They defended well and it wasn't our night.

"But now we've got to look forward to the next game which is a massive one on Saturday against Manchester United."
