Rodgers hails Liverpool ‘character’
The Reds took the lead through Luis Suarez, before Jan Vertoghen struck either side of half-time to give Spurs the advantage.
But, Stewart Downing pounced on a defensive mix-up between Kyle Walker and Hugo Lloris to level the scores with 25 minutes to play.
As the game looked to be heading for a draw, Steven Gerrard fired home from the spot to make it 3-2, after Suarez had been felled by Benoit Assou-Ekotto.
Rodgers was happy with his team’s display, praising their resilience and attitude to come back from behind:
“I think our character in the game was outstanding,” he told Sky Sports.
“Earlier on in the season that game might have tipped against us but the longer we’ve worked together now the more cohesion we’ve shown to keep going.
“We’re making this a difficult place to play these days and I thought the players were brilliant against an outstanding side in Tottenham and we keep the run going.”
After taking the lead, Tottenham began to dominate the game and looked to be heading towards victory.
But, Rodgers withdrew Brazilian youngster Philippe Coutinho to bring on Joe Allen, altering their formation to a 4-3-3.
The Northern Irishman was happy with the switch and believes that it gave his side a greater foothold in the game:
“There was a period at the beginning of the second half [where Spurs dominated]. We normally control the games better than we did today.
“That was the reason we made the change early in the second half – to get our control back and get three in midfield. That helped us as well as obviously the players working very hard.”
