Liverpool's Raheem Sterling says his side deserve to be top of the Premier League table following their eighth-successive victory.

Raheem Sterling believes that Liverpool "deserve to be at the top of the league" following their resounding victory against Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield.

The Reds put four unanswered goals past their opponents, stretching their winning run to eight games in the process.

"The target was to get the three points again today, and it's a great credit to the boys," Sterling is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News. "It's a great feeling, not just for me but for the whole team.

"It's great to be at the top of the league after today's win. It was a great team performance and the boys really deserve to be at the top of the league."

Liverpool are back in action next weekend when they take on West Ham United.
