The Reds defender believes his team needs to get a boot from their win and continue on keeping up their good work.
After their last minute win overTottenham
, admitted that they need to keep on their performance in the 2020-2021 Premier League campaign and continue fighting for the title as the reigning squad.
“When you play against a big team, obviously top of the league – they were first going into this game – scoring a last-minute winner is big. All the lads felt it,”
“But it’s only big if you use it in the right way and you try to kick on from it. We’re top of the league but there’s still a long way to go.”
“But it’s a big win against a really, really good team. We created good chances, we dominated the ball first half; the second half was a bit more even.”
“We’ve beaten a good team and it’s always nice when you do that but they’ll be there, they’ll come back again and we need to be at our best every game to stay top now because there’s a lot of teams trying to catch us.”
“It’s a lot closer race this year and it will go the whole way.”
“We just need to keep doing what we’re doing, focus on us and keep picking up three points as much as we can.”
The Scottish defender added on their last-minute goal, which was scored byFirmino
“I’m so happy for Bobby scoring the goal, you see how much it meant to him.”
“We’ve not scored many late goals this season, it has been a trademark of ours last season and the season before, but it’s so good to score last-minute winners, especially against a really good team like Tottenham.”
, who also talked about the game, refused to compare the last season campaign with last year.
“I’m now not too much in the last season any more, to be honest. I can understand that people might think it was a little bit similar to last season,”
“First and foremost, it was one of the best performances in a while. We had a few good games – Wolves was 10 days ago and was a top game.”
“We play quite good football from time to time and that’s why we have the amount of points we have."
“We don’t compare it with last season, but it was the performance we needed for a massive three points.”
