Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers was delighted with the manner of their win over Tottenham.

The Reds have scored 15 goals in recording four straight wins, three of which have been on home soil.

Asked if Anfield was becoming a fortress again, Rodgers replied: "The intention when I came here was to grow and cultivate that here. It was a difficult place to come for many years. That wasn't going to happen automatically but you see now that we're scoring goals.

"In some of the other games in this little run, it's always been that the other team hasn't played well or different circumstances - the players didn't quite get the credit for how they were performing. Today was a stringent test and they came through it.

"You saw the passion of the supporters today. I think they sense it's coming on well and it's growing. That's what we want this place to be.

"It's an iconic stadium in football history and we're trying to return it to that. You do that by winning games."
