MOST COMMENTED

Liverpool coach Brendan Rodgers said his team had passed another marker of growth after beating Tottenham 3-2 at Anfield on Sunday. A late Steven Gerrard penalty sealed the come from behind win for the Reds, ending Spurs 12-game unbeaten streak. Sixth-place Liverpool has now won its last three Premier League games, and sits just seven points behind fourth-place Chelsea in the league table.

"It is a big win,” Rodgers said after the game. “It is a big game when you are playing against an opponent that has been challenging for the Champions League for the last three or four years. It's a few years since Liverpool have beaten Tottenham. This is another marker in terms of our growth."

Meanwhile, Spurs coach Andre Villas-Boas lamented Gylfi Sigurdsson’s missed chance in the second half. "The chance to go 3-1 from Sigurdsson [who hit a post] was a big, big chance, probably the moment of the game. We did ever so well to come back into the game and played well, managed to create good opportunities and it is a shame we could not control the game in the manner we should and win.”
