Burnley manager Sean Dyche was impressed with his team's discipline in the draw at Liverpool on Saturday.
Burnley looked on course to be the next team in a long line of victims at Anfield when Liverpool took a one-goal lead into the break after a dominant first-half performance.
However, a well-taken Jay Rodriguez strike, as well as a string of fine saves from Nick Pope, ensured Burnley took a share of the spoils back to Turf Moor.
The Clarets even had a chance to win it late on when Johann Gudmundsson hit the bar. However, Dyche accepted that the draw was what Burnley deserved.
"We hit the bar late on but I think three points would have been over-egging it," Dyche admitted to BBC Sport. "We defended well and our keeper played well.
"They're a fine side, they're all over you so quickly and we couldn't get a foothold in the first half."
The Burnley manager revealed that his half-time team talk gave his players the message to play with freedom. It paid off, as they managed to get back in the game - and stay there.
"Second half I reminded them that the pressure was off, just go and play," Dyche added. "Get it forward and ask them more questions. You've got to find a moment, and we've been great at that.
"It's down to the players, we have built a mentality over time and they are delivering it with aplomb. We had some really good chances and we've taken one of them against a top, top side.
"Nick Pope makes saves, he's a top keeper."
