Jones says the win justifies the management of Brendan Rodgers.
"We wanted to go out, play well and get a result - coming up against a very good team and a team that's in form like ourselves," said the 30-year-old stopper to liverpoolfc.com.
"It was always going to be a tough one, trying to counter each other's attacking players.
"We had to make sure that we dug in, and be on form defensively. It was great character to come back and even better to get the win.
"The gaffer always said at the start that the end of the season would be where we're at our strongest - maybe he's had his mystic ball out because that's the way things are going at the moment."
