And Silva says the prospect of going 10 points behind the Reds motivated his teammates.
He said: "We knew that if we lost it would almost be over because 10 points is a lot.
"Now, four points, we believe it is possible, knowing the Premier League is a very tough competition.
"The pressure was a little bit more onto us. We are used to that kind of pressure.
"We got three very important points against a fantastic team."
