Despite posing a threat to Liverpool in attack through the likes of Enner Valencia, Reid believes that he and his defensive teammates should take special credit for the result.
"It was an excellent victory. Liverpool are a good team who will cause you problems, but I thought we limited them," the New Zealand international told the club's official website.
"In some situations this year we could have defended better, but on Saturday the defensive unit and the team as a whole was very good. We limited their chances - they were always going to get them, but we did limit them."
