Toure, who joined the club on a free transfer from Manchester City this summer, believes that the hard work and commitment of the players and coaching staff are being rewarded on the pitch.
"[Looking at the table] motivates us to do more," PA quotes the Ivorian as saying. "I'm not surprised because of the effort we put in during pre-season and the commitment of the players every day in training.
"We've been working so hard and everybody is really focused - the young players and the experienced players.
"The manager (Brendan Rodgers) is doing a great job, all the staff are working really hard. We need to carry on doing that and the results will come."
