    He won't say it but Liverpool are pretty much home and dry.

    The title is heading to Anfield unless something ludicrous happens.

    Thanks for you company. Sleep tight.

    Star Man: Liverpool now have 70 points. That's the same number of points Chelsea and Arsenal have made together.

    Bob Moss: Only games I can see Liverpool losing are against Man City and/or Arsenal. Otherwise it will be invincibles, part II.

    Liverpool

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, speaking to BBC MOTD:

    "I have no idea [if anyone will catch us]. The first target is to get the maximum points. This year there are still a lot of games.

    "Yes we have 70 points, an incredible number, but so many things can happen. We don't feel as though anything is done, I promise you. We take a deep breath and then Saturday it's Southampton."

    West Ham United

    David Moyes talking to Sky Sports:

    "We didn't play as well with the ball at times but we created some chances. Lots of things we did good but we didn't get the result.

    "There will have to be games where we play like that, we play a lot of good sides and we will have to be good without the ball."

    On new signing Tomas Soucek: "It is difficult to know what to expect but he is a big athletic midfield player, who has scored a lot of goals. An international and we have someone who can play in a couple of different roles.

    "It always takes time to settle and we need to give him that opportunity. I would like to bring in players who can help the team, if we can add, we will."

  6. 'We could have done a lot better'

    Liverpool

    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp talking to Sky Sports:

    "We could have done a lot of things better but there was only one team who deserved to win.

    "We could have passed better, defended better. Who cares? These players played outstanding football so often, it was a normal performance.

    "We never had 100% rhythm, it is tough to play against such a defensive-orientated team."

    Nathan Teggarty: Still refusing to say those four words, out of principle. But the past couple months have been breathtaking to watch Klopp’s men play. And he still demands better performances from them. Amazing.

    West Ham United

    West Ham boss David Moyes, speaking to BBC MOTD:

    "We are disappointed with the goals we conceded but not disappointed with the players' performances.

    "I hope Tomas Soucek brings us what he brought to Slavia Prague. He scores goals and plays in a couple of positions."
