Liverpool overcame an early deficit in their crucial 4-2 win over Manchester United on Thursday. Nat Phillips said after that the rapid turnaround came as no surprise to the players with it being “just a matter of time” until they clicked against their rival.
With three points in the bag, Liverpool have kept their hopes alive in their pursuit of a top four place. They are now just four points behind Chelsea with a game in hand for the final Champions League qualification position.
“I think we started quite slow, we knew we still had an extra gear,” said Phillips to Sky Sports. “I didn’t feel too worried. It was just a matter of time before we started playing the way we could do.”
“It was a rollercoaster. It was a strange game. It was an ugly match but we had to make it that way at the end to make sure we got the result. It was a big night for us.”
“It takes us closer [to the top four]. It’s another three points. It’s no secret what our objective is and that’s to win all our remaining games. We can enjoy it tonight but focus is on the next game.”
“We can’t look away from our camp. We can’t have an effect on that. We have to concentrate on doing our jobs. It’s something to build on and learn from. We need to take confidence from it.”
