Liverpool fans have hailed the ‘winning mentality’ of the squad after footage emerged showing the players walk down the tunnel after full-time.
Jurgen Klopp’s side went three points clear at the top of the table following a 4-2 win over Eddie Howe’s Newcastle.
Goals from Mohamed Salah, Curtis Jones and Cody Gakpo ensured three points for Jurgen Klopp’s side despite Alexander Isak and Sven Botman getting on the scoresheet.
And it seems Reds fans were even more please after a video showed the players as they headed for the changing rooms after the full-time whistle.
The footage firstly shows Diogo Jota – who was involved in an extremely controversial penalty decision – and Joe Gomez with determined looks on their faces.

Liverpool’s Curtis Jones looked to be one of the happier players in the squad
Following them two is Liverpool keeper Alisson and double goalscorer Mohamed Salah before the rest of the squad follows suit.
In comparison to the steely expressions shown by Alisson, Gomez, Virgil Van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold, Luis Diaz can be seen doing a playful dance.
Curtis Jones and Darwin Nunez can also be seen with wide grins on their faces after the full-time whistle.
Liverpool fans were quick to share their praise on social media, with one person writing: ‘They don’t even look overly pleased. I absolutely love it. They expect these results and mean business. Mentality’s of the highest quality.’
Another added: ‘Just look at their faces and you’ll know which players have won major trophies and which ones haven’t… It’s something that goes beyond tactics or training.’
A third wrote: ‘Their faces in the video displays Liverpool’s elite mentality as a club.’

A fourth also said: ‘Squad just demolished a strong team with the highest xG in Premier League history and this is how they “celebrate.” The lads mean business. there’s a title to be won and they know it. You can feel it in the air.’
During their match against Newcastle, Gary Neville was left in awe after Trent Alexander-Arnold’s wonder strike hit the post.
The former Man United defender said on co-commentary on Sky Sports: ‘That is obscene… obscene. You can’t shoot from there. Wow, the best non-goal I’ve ever seen.’
