JAMIE CARRAGHER believes Liverpool's dramatic comeback against Arsenal showed the spirit in Kenny Dalglish's resurgent side.
Dirk Kuyt's 102nd minute penalty rescued a point after Robin Van Persie's spot-kick looked to have secured victory for the Gunners.
Carragher, who watched the late drama unfold in the dressing room following his departure on a stretcher after being knocked unconscious, was delighted with the way the Reds never gave up the fight.
“There's been a great togetherness that has come in since Kenny got the job and you could see that today,” he said. “The crowd and everyone is together now and when you have that togetherness, things start to go your way.
“Look at the team we had out there at the end and how young it was. They kept going and going and supporters love to see those type of performances.
“There's a feelgood factor around the club. Hopefully we can keep it going.”
As well as losing Carragher, Fabio Aurelio limped off early on with a hamstring injury and Andy Carroll was substituted after jarring his knee.
But Liverpool produced a heroic display with teenage full-backs Jack Robinson and John Flanagan hugely impressive.
Carragher praised the two Academy graduates, both making their second senior appearance.
“One thing I'd like to think I've got and what these two lads look like they have got already in abundance is character,” he said.
“To play for Liverpool you need that no matter how good a player you are because you have ups and downs.
“That's something you need if you want to have a long career at Liverpool and it's something that the fans demand.
“How Jack played was unbelievable. Coming on against Theo Walcott – I wouldn't like that job myself.
“The two full-backs put their foot in, they are brave and they have a go.
“The way they played is testament to the work people down at the Academy have done and also credit the manager for giving them a chance.”
Carragher was forced off just before the hour mark after a sickening clash of heads with Flanagan. The centre-back had six minutes of treatment on the pitch as he was given oxygen and put in a neck brace.
However, after being stretchered off he soon regained consciousness and emerged on the touchline at the final whistle to join in the celebrations.
The skipper insists he will be fit for next Saturday's home game with Birmingham City.
“I can't remember too much about what happened,” he said. “I think I got a whack on my jaw but I feel fine now. Nobody has told me I've got to sit out at all so I don't think there should be any problems.
“I just came around in the dressing room and watched the rest of the game on TV.
“I was just praying Dirk scored and when he did I wanted to come out and celebrate with the lads.
“With all the injuries and changes we had to make it's a great result. It bodes well for the rest of the season.”
