Benitez: every point is crucial
Rafa Benitez believes that every point is important in the Premiership, if his Liverpool side are finally going to go on to win bigger and better things. Liverpool slumped to their first loss of the season with a 2-1 defeat to Spurs at the weekend.
The Spaniard told the press: âOn Saturday everyone was really upset because weâd played well, deserved to win and it was our first defeat.
âIn the past, maybe it would have been a case of âOkay, weâve lost, but we can win anotherâ. But when you have a winning mentality like weâve got now, every point you lose is very important.
âFor me quality is character, which is part of what a top-class player has to have â that mentality of winning, or making sure you come back well from a defeat.
âI think we now have a lot of those type of players in the club, but although things could be better, we are still in a fantastic position.â
