The 3-2 come-back victory moves the Merseysiders up into sixth position on the Premier League table, seven points adrift of the race for a spot in Europe's elite competition.

"We are improving at the right time and, because of that, we can dream of a Champions League place," Lucas said.

"Our greatest virtue in this match was that we never stopped fighting. We didn't get upset at losing and showed our strength to comeback.

Liverpool are one of the form teams in the league right now, the Tottenham victory making it three wins in a row for the club.

And despite admitting the club was proud of its recent record, Lucas said he and his team-mates are focused on stretching their winning form even further.

"It was our third consecutive victory, something that is worth a lot given the difficulty of the Premier League," he said

"We will continue to work hard, without fanfare, and things will come naturally."
