Joe Allen: Liverpool’s win at Tottenham a turning point
Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen says he hopes Liverpool's win at Tottenham can prove a turning point for Reds
Joe Allen believes Liverpool have turned a corner after an emphatic 5-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
In-form Luis Suarez scored either side of half-time, whilst Jordan Henderson, Jon Flanagan and Raheem Sterling all found the back of the net at White Hart Lane.
Hopefully, away from home, this is a turning point for us
It was Liverpool’s record win at the north London club, and Allen hopes the Reds can be more consistent on the road following their morale-boosting triumph over Spurs.
“We were hopeful of that performance,” Allen told Liverpool’s website.
“We were confident coming here off the back of two great results and with the likes of Luis playing so well and the team as a whole. We were confident we could get the win.
“We knew that missing Steven was going to be a big loss for us, but that probably showed the strength that we’ve got in our squad – especially in midfield.
“Everyone came to the fore today and probably answered the doubts people had as well as you could. It’s a great feeling.
“It’s always a great feeling to win at home, but our home record has been great. On the road, it has been a little inconsistent, so this is a special moment for us. Hopefully, away from home, this is a turning point for us.
“We will obviously celebrate this great victory but we’ve got to get our heads down now for a tough period and make sure we can maximise the points tally we rack up.”
