Simon Mignolet admits Liverpool's last week could not have gone any better – but insists all that has been forgotten since they returned to work at Melwood.

The Reds beat Cardiff City, Sunderland and Tottenham Hotspur within the space of eight days, scoring 12 goals in doing so, to surge to the top of the Barclays Premier League table.

However, while delighted with the nine-point haul achieved, Mignolet is adamant the squad are fully focused on extending an eight-match winning run when they return to action against West Ham United on Sunday.

The Belgian told Liverpoolfc.com: "I don't think it could have gotten any better in those eight days - if you win three times, that's what you want.

"We have to keep it going. We're happy with what has been and where we are at the moment, but it's more about what is coming that is important."

Liverpool returned to Anfield action after more than a month on the road when they hosted Sunderland last Wednesday and recorded a 2-1 victory.

Tottenham then visited L4 and were duly swept aside 4-0 as the Reds clinched first place in the table in style.

"If you play at home against any team in the Premier League, you want to win," reflected Mignolet. "That's the first objective.

"When we started the game, we scored very early which made it easier for us to play the game how we did. We played a very good team individually and also as a collective, but we did our jobs really well.

"We were very pleased with the result and the goals we scored - we might have even scored a few more - but also with the clean sheet.

"We'll take all that on board and into the last six games of the season."

It wasn't just the performance of Liverpool's players that had everyone talking following the Spurs success - the noise generated by the home supporters had many observers in awe.

Just a few days earlier, the Reds were afforded a rapturous welcome by fans as the team coach made its way through the Shankly Gates.

"Against Sunderland, the scenery before the game and the round of applause we got before we even went into the stadium was amazing," said Mignolet.

"It started us off really well. They're behind us - as they have been since the first day of the season - and their support can only help us in winning games.

"When the fans believe in you and give you that confidence to step onto the pitch, it makes it easier for us to play at Anfield.

"When you step onto the pitch, you feel they are behind you and want you to push forward.

"They want you to score a goal. I'm sure they'll keep doing that in the remainder of our home games we play this season at Anfield."
