Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez hailed his side's character after their 2-0 defeat of Tottenham put them back in contention for a top-four finish.

The deserved win puts the Reds only a point behind fourth-placed Spurs despite a stuttering campaign so far.

Benitez said: "The key to the win was the character of the side, I think.
