Jamie Carragher praises Liverpool attitude

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes the Reds are showing the right attitude in their bid for a Champions League place after the win over Spurs.

The Reds rose one place to sixth with Wednesday's 2-0 win and are now one point behind fourth place.

Carragher told BBC Radio Merseyside: "We realised we had to come together and show everyone what we're about.

"It's important to show when you don't play well we're still fighting for the club to get the right result."

And the Reds vice-captain expects plenty more points to be dropped in the battle for the top four.

He said: "Last year we were going for the title and our rivals were winning every week.

"With the little league we're in at the moment, it's not like last year where we had to win every game. There will be a lot of points dropped.

"You never know what's going to happen and how the other teams are going to react.

"The Europa League may play a part, as some of the other sides are not in Europe. That may come in to it as well.

"I'm just going to enjoy that we've had a good result. Hopefully that will give everybody a bit of confidence and we can move on."
