"I'm really pleased with the lads. It was a fantastic performance," the captain told the Liverpool Echo.
"I think before the game people were doubting us and thinking we would be a bit toothless in the final third without our top striker.
"But we've gone away from home, scored three goals and got the three points we came here for.
"If we can capitalise and make it 12 points out of 12 then we will find ourselves a lot closer to fourth."
