Man of the match Naismith told Sky Sports 1: "We played very well. We then let them settle and get a lot of possession.
"Throughout the match, I thought we got the better of possession, starting all the way from the back. James (McCarthy) and Gaz (Gareth Barry) in centre-mid dictated play quite a lot and they created many chances, so it worked well."
Naismith believes finishing in the top four would mean the world to the club and their fans but they must take it one game at a time, starting with next weekend's clash at Sunderland.
He said: "It would mean everything.
"We've believed from the start of the season and it just shows in these performances so we just need to concentrate on next week and hopefully get the points in."
