Kelly insists the Reds wanted it more after their derby win.
He told Liverpoolfc.tv: "We were all pleased in the dressing room and loving the win. We worked hard for it, made a fast start, got the goals and it was a great performance from our skipper.
"He's the type of player that can change games by himself and I think we worked hard as a team. That showed on the pitch.
"We definitely wanted the game more and the result proved that."
