Brendan Rodgers hailed the character shown by his Liverpool side after an all-important 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion at Anfield.
A first Liverpool goal for Adam Lallana, and a second half strike from Jordan Henderson sealed the Reds first Premier League win since August 31, and ensured they moved up to sixth place in the Premier League table.
“It was satisfying. We had to show character and the resilience of the players was fantastic,” said Rodgers.
“As we work more together the quality of our game will improve and the performance will improve but you have to find a way to win and we did that,” he said.
“That was against a team coming in with good confidence having won 4-0 last week (against Burnley).
“They keep clean sheets, they are difficult to beat and we found a way to break through that resistance and win. It was vital for us before the international break.
“We showed great potential against Tottenham and once we get all the players back and we can rotate the squad a bit better that will help us.”
