Boss Jurgen Klopp is happy that his Liverpool players continue to show that they have the fighting qualities needed to stay the pace in the Premier League title race.
The Reds restored a seven-point lead at the top of the table thanks to a 4-3 win over Crystal Palace at Anfield on Saturday, with Klopp delighted to see his side recover from conceding the first goal of the game.
The German told his club's official website: "Nobody should be surprised about the character of the boys. If something was really here before I came in, it was character.
"I have known the boys since October 2015, all the boys that were here, and they have outstanding character.
"The work-rate was always unbelievable, so you have to mix it up with a few other attributes. Confidence is important, self-belief and all that stuff. The boys are ready to fight for it all – that is clear."
Mo Salah scored twice against the Eagles to reach 50 goals in the Premier League in just 72 appearances, with Klopp adding: "Exceptional – an exceptional achievement from a world-class player, that's how it is."
Liverpool now have a significant break from action, as an early exit from the FA Cup means their next game is a league visit from Leicester City on Wednesday 30th January.
The Reds are available at 2/11 to win the game against the Foxes and are 13/2 to triumph by a 3-0 scoreline, with Liverpool 8/13 to be crowned Premier League champions come the end of the season.
