Meireles spoke of his delight at scoring his second goal in a week - but insisted the three points were the most satisfying aspect of the afternoon.
The Portugal international found the back of the net with a stunning 50th minute volley to cap a man-of-the-match display after operating in a position just behind Fernando Torres.
"I am very happy to score a goal, but for me the most important thing is the victory for the team," he told liverpoolfc.tv.
"I try to do my best in all positions. Today I played in the centre of the midfield and felt comfortable. But the most important thing is to do what the coach wants."
