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.
