The Whites put in a much more defensively-assured performance than the one they produced in their 6-2 defeat at Old Trafford earlier in the season.

The result leaves Marcelo Bielsa’s men ninth in the top flight table with five games left to play, and a clash against Brighton next on the horizon.

Reflecting on his side’s success this season, the Argentine boss hailed the togetherness of his squad.

Speaking recently, he said: “The group of players have constructed a solid group.

“Throughout this time they made errors and they’ve learned how to correct them. In the same way, they’ve learned to avoid errors that are avoidable. I have the feeling there’s been a growth in maturity, in the experience to manage these games.

“The way in which to administer the different periods in the game has been improving.

“The capacity for the players to go up against these very good players has also increased. Progressively, but not in a definitive manner, we can impose ourselves over the opposing defence and avoid being overcome by attackers of the highest level. These are individual merits and a great togetherness within the components of the team allows them to support each other throughout the whole game.”
