“It’s been a great couple of days for me. I’m feeling better and better, feeling more confident, fitter and that is very important for me. I’m feeling great, improving the stats and winning, we keep winning [and] that’s the main thing.

“It means a lot obviously, back home it’s a special feeling but to be able to score is a great feeling, but the most important [thing] is the win. It’s a tough place to come and play and we did very well.”

Pérez also praised the manner in which Brendan Rodgers’ outfit recovered from their setbacks against Manchester City and Liverpool to earn six points from two tricky away fixtures.

We know what we are capable of and we will keep pushing. We will keep pushing. We are in a great, great position and hopefully we can celebrate something special at the end of the year
