Stoke City boss Tony Pulis was delighted with his side's display in Saturday's hard-fought 2-0 victory against Liverpool.
The Potters had ended their recent losing sequence by beating Birmingham City in midweek and moved into the top half of the table after goals by Ricardo Fuller and Kenwyne Jones helped them secure their second win in five days.
Pulis exclaimed after the match:"We are very pleased. The important thing was to push up on Liverpool and stop them getting a rhythm in their passing and we really closed them down from the front.
"I am very pleased with everyone in my team. In a three-game week when you have to play a top side at the end of that week it is always very difficult.
"We showed loads of passion, commitment and energy and they deserved their victory."
