“It was a big [test], the toughest you could get for today but for different reasons. Wolves with Nuno are doing really well but they are pretty different to all the other teams. They use the width of the pitch with Coady’s long balls and when Traore gets the ball he’s pretty much unplayable. [The goal] was a counterattack which makes not too much sense when you’re one goal up, another five or 34 minutes it was Wolves but then the game calmed down a bit.
“The chances we had were incredible. We were four or five times in front of the goalie. We won the game, incredibly difficult, but who cares? We didn’t panic but it is not that we were completely in the mood I wanted at 1-1.
“It’s over when it’s over. Not before. So why should we really think about that? If I hear the message ‘you can lose six games’ [and win title] I could vomit to be honest. ”

“Just to point out, Liverpool are now guaranteed safe from relegation, ” writes David Gray . They’ll be partying on the streets on Merseyside!
“Very good performance. I think we performed well, defensively well organized, created a lot of chances and the momentum was there. We were facing a very good team but I was very happy with the boys. Small margins, details.

Jordan Henderson: “We had some chances to put the game to bed which is something we want to improve on and kill the game earlier. But we showed the mentality to keep going.
“It’s just about the next game, keep going, every game is the biggest game of the season as the manager keeps saying to us.”
Virgil van Dijk: “You need to give them credit, they played good, they have good players. They’re difficult to break down, created moments of danger and we had to dig deep. We’re not happy about the goal we conceded but how we reacted is a good thing and we know we’re always going to have chances.
