Klopp even lost for words at his Liverpool team

It was the win that took us level with Nottingham Forest's great side of the late 70's on 42 games unbeaten in the league, just 7 behind Arsenal's 'Invincibles'.


But it's the manner with which this Liverpool team beat Southampton, after a poor first-half, that showed how special this team really has become.


The Southampton manager was full of praise for how the Reds approached the mid-table side: no let-up, no underestimation, just intensity, energy and - eventually - a win.


They've become such an unstoppable powerhouse in the Premier League, that even their own manager has admitted that he's never quite seen anything like them.


After the match, he said: "If I was on the outside looking at this, I'd be asking the same questions.


"I can only say I don't feel it. It is not that I feel stronger and stronger and stronger after each win. It's not like this.


"It is just one great celebration - sometimes more, sometimes less - and then relief, settle and go again.


"I have no clue how it should feel. It's not that I think we are close to something special.


"So many things can happen in football and even when there is any decision made in the future, why should we stop thinking the same way?


"We have to use the skills of the boys, the character of the boys, we have to use the power of this club and especially this stadium. It is our duty to win football games."


The Reds will take on Shrewsbury Town on Tuesday night, before embarking on a 'winter break' until the 15 February. But could sit 22 points clear, depending on how Man City get on tomorrow afternoon.
