The tenacity Liverpool have shown to snatch crucial victories from challenging situations, such as the weekend win over Swansea City, is apparently borne out of the spirit engendered in training at Melwood.
With little over a quarter of an hour remaining in their Barclays Premier League clash on Sunday, the Reds found themselves locked at 3-3 with the Welsh outfit, having surrendered their lead on two separate occasions.
Not the first time this season, though, Brendan Rodgers' team secured all three points by simply refusing to settle for less - with midfielder Jordan Henderson the man to strike the winner.
Supporters have witnessed similar feats, notably against Everton in November and at Fulham earlier this month, as their team have established a healthy position within the top four of the division.
The work in producing such turnarounds begins long before the players take to the field, explains Simon Mignolet, who revealed how competitiveness is present around the squad on a daily basis.
He told Liverpoolfc.com: "It's not only on the pitch, it's also on the training ground - we go until the end and everybody works really hard.
"We try to get the maximum out of every little session, even in small training games we want to win every single game. That's the spirit of the squad. We know that we'll work for the full 90 minutes, until the last minute of the game.
"There have been a few occasions now where we have got a result in the end out of positions where we weren't getting a result. This week and also Fulham, but I remember the derby with Everton at the beginning of the season as well.
"We've done that so far and hopefully we can keep that going until the last game of the season. There have been a few now; the one away to Fulham and now at home against Swansea.
"It's very important that you keep winning and it means we're able to continue in the same manner. We can look forward to the next game, which happens to be Southampton this weekend - which is obviously going to be a tough game again.
"But we'll try to do our best and make sure we get the result there as well."
Fans in a downtown Manhattan bar were treated to a surprise appearance from Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler when the Reds favourite visited New York last week.
The former Kop hero – now an LFC ambassador – had travelled to New York to officially announce Liverpool’s match against Manchester City at the Yankee Stadium on July 30th when he decided to stop by Lunasa, the second home of the local branch of the official LFC Supporters’ Club on the Lower East Side.
“We’ve been really fortunate to have some great LFC legends come over to see us,” revealed Daragh Kennedy, President of the New York Supporters’ Club, “but when we put word out on Thursday that Robbie was coming down to the bar, the response from our members was unbelievable. We couldn’t give the members much notice of Robbie’s visit as we didn’t want to give away the fact that the club were making their big announcement about coming to New York in the summer but still we had fans travel from all over just to meet their hero.
“Robbie is a player who will have been the first real hero for many of our members and there was no way they were missing the opportunity to meet him. Some of the Irish lads who live right up in the Bronx travelled for over an hour just to see him.
“Robbie was the perfect guest. He did a fans’ Q&A for over an hour – which was very funny and quite revealing – and then he stayed behind to pose for pictures and sign autographs for everyone there. When the first team comes over in the summer, hopefully Robbie will come with them as he’s just as much a star with our members as any of the current players.”
Jordan Henderson hailed his crucial winner in Sunday's thrilling 4-3 win over Swansea City as one of the most important strikes of his Liverpool career so far.
The Reds' No.14 was perfectly placed to capitalise on a loose ball in the opposition penalty area and, after his initial attempt had been parried by goalkeeper Michel Vorm, follow up for a simple tap-in.
Henderson's conversion sealed a vital victory for his team, successfully concluding a match in which Brendan Rodgers' men had twice been pegged back, and creating a six-point lead in fourth place.
It meant something else on a personal level too. Post-match, the manager revealed that the midfielder has been encouraged by the coaching staff to attack the six-yard box on a regular basis.
For the crucial effort to stem from exactly that kind of scenario was therefore extra reason for the England international to be proud, even more than with his sublime, curled finish in the first half.
He said: "It's good to get on the scoresheet. For the first one, [Daniel] Sturridge did brilliantly to take him on and square it; I had time to take a touch and just find the corner.
"But the second one was pleasing because I've been trying to arrive in the box a lot more, and to find the back of the net then was very pleasing as well. It was a good goal and that's probably the most important one I've scored here.
"I've still got a long way to go and a lot to do to improve my game. Goals are one, but there are a lot of other things. I'll just continue to do what I've been doing and work hard in training. Hopefully I can keep improving.
"Everyone is delighted with the final result. Three points were much needed - there was a lot of pressure going into the game, with all of the other teams winning. We knew that we needed to win the game. So we're over the moon with the three points.
"We made some mistakes and we didn't play as well as we can, but we showed a lot of character. When they got level twice, we showed a lot of character to keep going, stay positive and find the winner. We managed to do that."
Brendan Rodgers quickly trained his sights on the work required for Liverpool ahead of their next Barclays Premier League fixture after the Reds dramatically downed Swansea City 4-3 at Anfield on Sunday.
A brace apiece from Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge eventually proved enough to overcome the Welsh outfit, who produced a performance packed with attacking verve and spirit to push Rodgers' side all the way.
Henderson's crucial winner in the 74th minute - blasted beyond goalkeeper Michel Vorm at the second time of asking - ultimately opened up a six-point advantage in fourth place in the standings for his team, as Tottenham Hotspur were beaten later in the day by Norwich City.
The next obstacle in Liverpool's path to Champions League qualification is a trip to St Mary's and Southampton, where Mauricio Pochettino's men were convincing 3-1 winners in the corresponding encounter last season.
"We recover from this but we've still got a lot of work to do between now and next weekend," Rodgers explained to Liverpoolfc.com after the final whistle.
"It was a very important three points for us - it keeps our run going and keeps the momentum. We know we're going to have a tough game next week as well.
"Every game in the Barclays Premier League is tough. But we can be really proud of the character we showed to keep pushing and keep going.
"This was probably the first performance at home where we haven't been at our fluent best, but to score four and show that resilience was very important. It was a great three points in the end."
The manner in which Liverpool battled to secure a crucial 4-3 victory over Swansea City on Sunday was one to be proud of, according to Brendan Rodgers, who again highlighted the 'character' in his team.
With 20 minutes played at Anfield, the Reds appeared to be laying the foundation for another straightforward Barclays Premier League win on home soil - with strikes from Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson earning a 2-0 lead.
Back came the visitors, though, and a second of the match by Sturridge was required to maintain an advantage for the hosts at the half-time break, following conversions from Jonjo Shelvey and Wilfried Bony on behalf of the Welsh side.
The latter brought the score level with the encounter's sixth effort after winning and successfully taking a spot-kick two minutes into the second period. However, Henderson hauled Liverpool over the line with a close-range finish as the clock ticked away.
Although the display was one of stark contrast to the respective routs of Arsenal and Everton in L4 already this year, Rodgers reflected on three points which he always expected would be difficult to claim from his former club.
"It was an excellent three points for us," the manager told reporters at his post-match press conference. "Yet again the offensive side of our game was very good to get four goals.
"We didn't defend anywhere near well enough today in aspects of our game. But to come out of it with the three points, we're very pleased. It was a very good win against an outstanding team.
"We have probably been spoiled here at Anfield, to be honest. People will walk away and think: 'We're normally winning by three or four at half-time' - the game is over and everyone is sat comfortably and enjoying it.
