Raheem Sterling believes Liverpool have shown that they are coping with the pressure of being in the title race well after a 4-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

The Reds seized their chance to go top of the Premier League table in emphatic style as an own goal from Younes Kaboul and strikes from Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson sealed the win.

The appetite of the players and the attitude as well; we’re really working for each other and we know the dream at the end of it

“We dealt with the pressure really well,” said Sterling. “We played some really good football out from the back. To know that we could go top of the league, we dealt with it really well.

“To get the win was great, credit to the boys – they were magnificent during the whole week in training. It has shown on the pitch; credit to the whole team and the manager.”

Liverpool are two points clear of second-placed Chelsea, and Sterling heaped praise on Liverpool’s appetite and attitude in the rout at Anfield on Sunday.

“Our football and the way we have been playing.

“The most important thing is the way we’re working for each other. We’re not just running headlessly, we’re working as a unit and really perfecting that.

“We’re putting teams on the back foot and then pressing really hard to counter-attack them. The boys are working really hard, day in and day out in training – you can see it paying off on the pitch.

“With Luis and Dan scoring the goals up front, there’s a really good mixture in the team. The appetite of the players and the attitude as well; we’re really working for each other and we know the dream at the end of it.

“It’s a credit to the boys today; they really worked hard for each other. Everyone was pressing and working their socks off. I’m just really grateful to have been part of that team, because it’s a credit to the lads – they were great.”
