Pundit Gary Neville has told Sky Sports that he thinks Liverpool fans have 'complete trust' in their team having roared them on to victory against Tottenham Hotspur.

The Reds hosted a shaky Tottenham side at Anfield on Sunday, and fell behind inside the first minute as Son Heung-min's shot hit the bar, and Harry Kane stooped to score the rebound.

Liverpool were all over Spurs from then on though, and Jordan Henderson hauled them back into the game with a smart back post finish to make it 1-1.

 

Jurgen Klopp's men didn't stop there, and when Sadio Mane was fouled inside the box for a penalty, Mohamed Salah stepped up to score past Paulo Gazzaniga.

Liverpool held on for the win, and showed the battling qualities that champions need if they're to win the Premier League, and they keep their six point lead at the top of the table.

It would have been easy for Liverpool fans to get a little nervy after conceding that early goal, especially as it took more than 50 minutes to find an equaliser, with Spurs frustrating them before that goal.

Instead, Liverpool fans stuck with their team, and whilst that has often been the case, Gary Neville has hailed Reds fans for having 'complete trust' in their team to get a result even when they suffer a setback.

Neville added that he thinks Liverpool's football is scintillating, and they now deserve to win a Premier League title having played such great football for two years now.

“There’s a complete trust in the crowd in this team,” said Neville. “They’re brilliant to watch, the football is scintillating, and they’ve played title-winning football now for two years. You can’t compare them to City, they’re a completely different team, but they’re relentless and they should win a title, playing the football and amassing the points they have,” he added.
