    Right that's the end of this live page, thanks for joining us today and getting involved in the debate.

  2. 'No big Liverpool chances'

    FT: West Ham 1-1 Liverpool

    Chris Sutton

    Ex-Premier League striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    West Ham didn't chase the game all night and they let Liverpool have possession, but then they had real energy going forward.

    I thought Felipe Anderson and Mark Noble were very good but Declan Rice was sensational. Lukasz Fabianski didn't have many saves to make and I cannot think of any big Liverpool chances.

  3. 'You can see Man City pushing all the way'

    FT: West Ham 1-1 Liverpool

    Chris Sutton

    Is this Liverpool's blip?

    They have to recover quickly because Man City did look ominous against Arsenal and you can see them pushing Liverpool all the way in the next few weeks.

    Mikey: To Bob (10:29), Maths clearly not your strong point; Liverpool can reach 101. That aside, Liverpool don't need to panic. Players to come back fresh for the run in and pressure back on the other times now they are no longer the strong front runners.

  5. Post update

    West Ham 1-1 Liverpool

    Liverpool have dropped points in consecutive league matches for the second time this season - after September and October when they drew against Chelsea and Manchester City.

    The Reds have failed to beat West Ham in the Premier League for the first time since a 2-2 home draw on 11 December 2016. The Reds had won each of their last four league matches against the Hammers.

  6. 'A long way to go'

    FT: West Ham 1-1 Liverpool

    Jason Burt

    Telegraph journalist on BBC Radio 5 live

    Jurgen Klopp saying they didn't enjoy it worries more than anything else.

    Players dropped out at the last minute and West Ham played well, but if I was a Liverpool fan I wouldn't want my manager saying we didn't enjoy it, because there is a long way to go.

    One thing you've got from them this season is a sense of enjoyment.

  7. 'The Man City juggernaut'

    FT: West Ham 1-1 Liverpool

    Chris Sutton

    Ex-Premier League striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    The aggregate result in this fixture was 16-2 in the last four games, so Liverpool would have come into this fixture thinking 'these are our whipping boys'.

    To come away with a point they maybe didn't deserve, they will have lost confidence. They have not been convincing and the juggernaut of Man City chasing them is ominous.

    They have to go away and look at themselves at the top of the table and grow their confidence because this isn't a sprint for the title yet.

    Bob: As a City fan, the other story with tonight's result is that Liverpool can get no more than 99 points now.

    3 men and a football: Trying to remember what happened the last time a Liverpool captain said the words "we go again" when they were top of the league it seems to have "slipped" my mind...

  9. 'They might have won had he been playing'

    FT: West Ham 1-1 Liverpool

    Jason Burt

    Telegraph journalist on BBC Radio 5 live

    I don't think Marko Arnautovic will be here next season. You can sense Manuel Pellegrini didn't want to talk about him, and actually had he been playing, they might have won.

  10. Offside decision 'explains second half' performance by referee

    West Ham 1-1 Liverpool


    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp on Sky Sports: "Not our best of course. it was difficult because of the opponent and our own situation.

    "We had good moments.

    "We score the goal which was offside

    "The referee must know that at half-time, it explains the second half because I think the referee knew and you saw there were a lot of strange situations, not decisive, just rhythm breakers."

    Speaking to the referee after the game: "I was really calm. He said we don't talk at all.

    "There were so many situations where it was 50-50 or 60-40... free kick for the other team. As a human being I know if I make a big mistake in the first half I don't want to open the gap even more.

    "They scored the goal and it was a deserved draw.

    "I didn't see a good game from us, a couple didn't perform at the highest level but that has happened before and it will happen in the future."

  11. Post update

    Very interestingly at the end of the BBC Radio 5 live interview, Manuel Pellegrini was asked about Marko Arnautovic, who (as far as we know) has a foot injury.

    He sounded annoyed and said “I don’t want to talk about him" before walking away.

  12. 'Liverpool lacked leadership'

    FT: West Ham 1-1 Liverpool

    Chris Sutton

    Ex-Premier League striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    The worrying thing for Liverpool is that they conceded from a set-piece, which can happen, but then they made the same mistakes twice again in the first half.

    It looks like they lacked a bit of leadership.

    You don't expect City to not cope with the pressure and you expect them to keep thundering on in the same way.

  13. Post update

    West Ham 1-1 Liverpool

    West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini to BBC Sport: "We had a lot of chances to win this game. We drew because they scored a clearly offside goal.

    "The last play of the game, Origi missed that goal. He was offside. It was a big mistake from the linesman.

    "Playing against a team who have scored so many goals with the best defence in the league, I'm happy with the performance but disappointed with the result.

    "We need to grow and be more consistent in our play, it doesn't matter against who we play."

  14. 'Bag of nerves'

    FT: West Ham 1-1 Liverpool

    Jason Burt

    Telegraph journalist on BBC Radio 5 live

    I think Liverpool are a bag of nerves. They have had injuries and those players that have come in have not performed.

    Collectively they look like a team that are losing a bit of confidence at the moment.

  15. 'Huge disappointment'

    FT: West Ham 1-1 Liverpool

    Chris Sutton

    Ex-Premier League striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    On paper, Leicester at home and West Ham away were an absolute shoo-in for four points, and to come away with two points, is a huge disappointment.

    At the other end, how can West Ham perform that badly at Wolves and then turn up and produce a really mature and disciplined performance against the league leaders?

    Bill: Can't see Liverpool winning it now. Playing so poorly and grinding draws against Leicester & West Ham, you can see the nerves. Still have Everton & Man Utd away to come as well. Best we can hope for is this is our little blip like City's in December.

    Ryan: 2 points dropped for Liverpool.. but only 'level' on points if they beat Everton AND playing Chelsea and United! The best title race since Chelsea and United in 2008/08!

    TJ: After 25 games we are 3 points clear at the top of the league. Don't let fixture rearrangements fool you, we won't be second unless we fail to beat Bournemouth on the weekend.

  17. 'It's a fair point'

    West Ham 1-1 Liverpool


    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp speaking to BBC Sport: "It was a tough game. You saw around the set-piece, we knew about the routine but when we trained we had three other players in the team.

    "Apparently our goal was offside and maybe the referee knew that in the second half.

    "It's a point and it's a fair point.

    “All the reports are already written about the game. I didn’t see, whatever you may ask about pressure, and we just didn’t enjoy the game enough.

    "We struggled most with the set-pieces.

    "We had ups and downs. At the end we were up again. Now we take the point and carry on.

    "We lost balls in different moments. It's a deep defending side and we have to cope with that and create."

    KoloKK: your bias for City is always evident each time you handle #bbcfootball live-text commentary. Whether it's City playing or not.

  19. 'We deserved to win tonight'

    West Ham midfielder Mark Noble to Sky Sports: "January was a bad month for us.

    "We defended fantastically well and probably deserved to win tonight. You can't play man to man against Liverpool and out-pass them. You have to keep your shape and stop them.

    "We scared them. You have to do that against the top teams. I'm just gutted we didn't come away with the three points.

    "We're gutted in there because the goal was clearly offside. We scored a fantastic set-play and didn't manage to get a second goal."

  20. 'We go again'

    Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk to Sky Sports: "It's tough but they were decent and defended well. It could have been a lot better.

    "It is what it is. We have to keep going. That [free-kicks] are their strength, they practice on it a lot. When you have a back four who don't change it's maybe a bit easier. But we have enough quality to fill it.

    "What can we do? We take it game by game. We're still top of the league. You need to enjoy the pressure. You can also be playing for nothing. We're still in the race. We go again."
