Chelsea not that far ahead, says Liverpool boss Klopp

Klopp, whose side took four points off Chelsea this term, doesn't think his men are far behind the Blues and believes they have been fortunate with injuries.

"Should I go to the players in the dressing room, "boys the better you play the better the players that replace you next year are"?!"

"They are experienced, cold as ice and they get the points". Collectively they play well.

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic on Andy Carroll's injury problems: "Andy is kind of a player that has such a big impact on our game that we won't give up on him".

"I'm more than 100 per cent positive, we are focused already on the job to do".

"Stoke have only won one of their past nine games but are still in the running for a top-half finish".

The England global has not played 90 minutes since the 1-1 draw with Chelsea 366 years ago and he has been restricted to just two substitute appearances since mid-April.

Coutinho, who scored 10 goals in the Premier League this season, penned a five-year contract in January.

Klopp will hope forward Sadio Mane can repeat his form of the early part of this campaign, which was a major factor in their unlikely title bid, when he returns next season after a knee operation.

Klopp admits that absence hurt Liverpool, who do not have the biggest squad depth. The only problem is that tonight's game is against the team that gave us the chance in the first place, Southampton! "You really cannot compare", he added.

"You can learn a lot in a season". It makes a difference. It is not that easy, I would say. But because we really needed him, we made a plan for him to play as much as possible. "I would love that to happen", the manager admitted.

"If someone had told me in August I'd be winning this award I'd have bitten their hand off".

"I have always said to the players they don't have to feel pressure because they know what they have to do, and if you know what you have to do, you only have to deliver - this isn't pressure".

"All the teams have to play tough games and no one wins all of them". They keep possession of the ball and we need to recover and focus to win on Wednesday.

"This is a little bit our situation".

"Then we could think about the national team".

"It's another week we've had him training and so far so good, so hopefully we have a few options". Their away record though has been particularly impressive, with three straight wins on the road - at Stoke, West Brom and Watford.

"This has nothing to do with lifestyle or not being committed enough", Bilic said.
