Liverpool icon John Aldridge was delighted with the manner of victory over Tottenham on Sunday.

He wrote in his column in the Liverpool Echo: "Liverpool weren't at their best against Tottenham at Anfield on Sunday but that made the victory all the sweeter. What pleased me the most was that we dug deep and ground it out.

"We got a bit of luck with the second and third goals as Spurs' defending was horrendous but we still had to be good enough to take those chances.

"Winning without playing particularly well is the sign of a good side and we haven't done that enough in recent years. In fact too often we've played well and not won so Sunday was a welcome change.

"How many times this season have Manchester United won without being at their best? It's about mental resilience and it was great to see Liverpool pick up three points in that kind of manner."
