Jordan Henderson felt Liverpool’s relentlessness against Tottenham Hotspur in a 2-1 win over one of their best performances so far this season.
An impressive clash between the top two in the Premier League was resolved at Anfield at the last minute when top-ranked Roberto Firmino was able to score three points at the top which put the Reds at the top on touch.
Mohammed Salah’s unexpected effort was earlier thwarted by his son Hyung-Min, but the ruling champions refused to give it up and as a result went ahead in the division.
Henderson spoke to the match after the Amazon Prime video and you can read the captain’s dramatic win below.
It’s a ‘heavyweight’ clash and it seems to like to play.
Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like Al that sounds pretty crap to me [we] Work on the counter in the first half. We’d be disappointed in it because we knew it was, but overall I thought the performance was outstanding. I thought we dominated the ball for a long time, we made some good chances and never stopped – we kept going the right way until the end and got the winner that I think we deserve.
Does he think that any winner will remove Liverpool …
We just focus on continuing until the whistle blows. We don’t think about records or results, we’re here to win games and we don’t stop until the final whistle. Unfortunately over the weekend we couldn’t find any winners, today we did so I was happy with the boys, I thought the performance was outstanding and deserved three points.
It’s about the Reds’ best performance of the season so far.
I would say it was personally one of our best performances of the season. Without the ball, without the ball, the counter-press was really good, relentless with the pressure and won the ball higher. I’m on the moon, you see.

Okay, I was telling you he was outstanding before the game and I expected the same tonight and he is outstanding again. He was one of the best players in the park, he won most of the things in the air, defended, I could always hear him speak for this young man. Glad for him. But not just him – Fabinho next to him, the whole back four and the whole team, to be honest.
Leaffrogging Spurs top the Premier League …
We just want to focus on ourselves, I know we keep saying it and it can be annoying but we do, we focus on ourselves and yes, it can make them a little inferior because we got three points but that’s what it’s all about us. And what we do. We’re excited about three things and our focus has now become the weekend, which comes fast against the Palace, those who are very good direction, you know they got some very good results late, so it will be a tough test for us.
