"Obviously, since I'm at Liverpool we had to learn these kind of games," Jurgen Klopp told a press conference after the Merseyside derby.
"We had to learn to play at Old Trafford, we had to learn to play at Goodison, and tonight we showed that we made a big step in our development and that's really good.
"It doesn't mean anything for the future but it shows us that this is now our benchmark, that's what we have to reach now in each game when we play these kind of teams, because emotions are important in football.
"We are a very emotional football team but, first and foremost, you need the right mood and mindset. Yes, emotion [is] good but not the only important thing."
Liverpool are arguably the most impressive out of the three contenders for the Premier League title right now. In all but one game this season, they've scored two or more goals while also suffering just one defeat against West Ham.
Of course, it will be a challenge to keep the momentum going through December and January, with a packed schedule and the African Cup of Nations in the way. Still, you would not bet against Klopp's team in any game right now.
