If the Liverpool team had dropped down to sixth then that would have been demoralising for them, and top four would have become hard but now it's a realistic aspiration.
Former Liverpool midfielder David Thompson says that they battered Tottenham, limiting them to a single shot on target.
Liverpool beat Tottenham 2-0 earlier this morning.
Thompson says the performance showed by Liverpool will be the benchmark for the rest of the season.
Liverpool now sits on fourth place on the points table with 49 points, 10 points away from leading team Chelsea.
In other games played, Arsenal beat Hull City 2-0, Manchester United defeated Watford 2-0 while Middlesbrough drew nil-all with Everton.
Stoke City beat Crystal Palace 1-0, Southampton thrashed Sunderland 4-0 while West Ham drew 2-all with West Brom.
