  1. Post update

    Just the four news conferences today, so that's me done for the day.

    But fear not - I'll be back in the morning with the rest of the pressers ahead of the weekend's fixture list.

    See you all bright and early!

    Now it's time for the latest from Saint boss Ralph Hasenhuttl...

  4. 'We want to send people to work on Monday with a smile on their face'

    Fulham v Cardiff City (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    Fulham

    On Cardiff: "I think Cardiff have done remarkably well, and full credit to Neil [Warnock] for what he's done. To still be in with a shout with three games left is a fantastic achievement.

    "It will be one of the toughest games we've had, because it's a team scrapping for their lives and because of who their manager is."

    On aiming for a third successive win: "I think it would mean a lot to everyone to win a third game in a row. We want to send people to work on Monday with a smile on their face."

  5. 'Babel has been fantastic'

    Fulham v Cardiff City (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    Fulham

    On Ryan Babel: "He has been fantastic for us, and his next move will depend on offers. I completely understand that and won't be holding him back. But we like him a lot and if there's a possibility of signing a player of his calibre, he'd be top of the list."

  6. 'The owners are very positive about keeping a strong squad'

    Fulham v Cardiff City (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    Fulham

    On relegation: "Relegation brings a lot of disappointment and uncertainty, and you understand the squad is going to change. But the owners are very positive and will be doing everything in their power to keep the squad as strong as possible going into next season."

  8. Liverpool team news

    Liverpool v Huddersfield (Fri, 20:00 BST)

    Liverpool

    Oops, I lied. Jurgen hadn't finished. How rude of me.

    He also provided an injury update on Fabinho and Adam Lallana, revealing the pair will be assessed before Liverpool’s meeting with Huddersfield.

    Dejan Lovren is likely to be fit for Friday’s game at Anfield.

    “All a bit questionable, we don’t know exactly in the moment. We will have to see today. We gave them all a proper rest. Dejan trained yesterday so that’s OK probably and the other two we will see.”

    On Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain,, Klopp said: “Ox trained, all good.”

  9. 'Our mood has lifted no end'

    Fulham v Cardiff City (Sat, 15:00 BST)

    Fulham

    On current form: "[The two wins] have lifted the mood no end. We've not had back-to-back wins so it's been a good couple of weeks for us.

    "The boys have been fantastic and very receptive, and the results are a by-product of the work they've done on the training pitch.

    "It's always nice to hear that players I'm coaching are appreciative of what we're doing. That's helpful, but ultimately I'll get judged on results and what my team looks like every weekend, and I'm fine with that."

    Scott Parker

    That's your lot from Jurgen Klopp - chatty as ever.

    Next up: Fulham's Scott Parker.

  12. 'We are working to close the gap on City'

    Liverpool v Huddersfield (Fri, 20:00 BST)

    Liverpool

    On pushing limits: “We are here because of the players. The boys did outstandingly well, everyday pushing their limit.

    “It’s not important what people think about you. After a season, if you listen to the public you have to sell like 15 players and bring in 15 players and if there’s a good striker out there you have to buy him.

    “You have to trust your own feelings and your own decisions. It is proved through the season whether you were right.

    “There’s still a team with a point more right now and we respect that but we are working to close that gap.”

    Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp
  13. ''Winning the league is the first step'

    Liverpool v Huddersfield (Fri, 20:00 BST)

    On improving: “If we win the league it is the first step. That’s how it is. We start now. We started the season with this team so let’s carry on.”

    “We have been together more than three-and-a-half years. It’s completely normal if you have the quality to do so. They are at the perfect age. They have a lot of space for improvement.

    “You are not surprised anymore if you are good and not frustrated anymore if you’re not so good.”

  14. 'Mignolet has improved in the last year'

    Liverpool v Huddersfield (Fri, 20:00 BST)

    Liverpool

    Last week, James Milner praised Simon Mignolet’s professionalism.

    “It’s no problem to speak about it but it’s a shame we have to," Klopp said. “We only have a first XI. The quality in training when all the boys are fit is incredible.

    “I like really that Milly picked Simon. I’m sure he thinks of himself as a number one but he’s the best number two in the Premier League.

    “He has improved in the last year because of his professionalism and his attitude. It’s just brilliant. I’m not in the dressing room constantly but when Milly says something it is 100% true. I’m happy having this quality.”

  15. 'Milner is a machine'

    Liverpool v Huddersfield (Fri, 20:00 BST)

    Liverpool

    On James Milner's penalty against Cardiff: “He’s like a machine in these moments.

    “He trains them and he is not the only one. Mo is getting better and better and better.

    “Milly is experienced. He has had important penalty shoot-outs in his life. He know it’s all about how you keep your body in the right position and the right technique and then done.

    “He has also missed a penalty in a pretty important game if I’m right but he’s like a machine. He switches off all emotions and puts the ball in the net.

    “That’s the way to do it.”

  16. 'My team is team of the season anyway'

    Liverpool v Huddersfield (Fri, 20:00 BST)

    Liverpool

    Four Liverpool players were announced as part of the PFA Team of the Year earlier today: Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson, Sadio Mane and Trent Alexander Arnold.

    “It’s impressive. It’s good and deserved. For me, my team is team of the season anyway," Klopp said. “From my point of view, there’s could have been four, five, six, maybe seven more players involved.

    “The players in the Premier League make the decision so it’s the most honest competition of the year, even when the players don’t watch the game.

    “When you come in the team as a defender obviously players came up against them and felt uncomfortable.

    “Mo deserved to be in there, Gini [Wijnaldum] plays an incredible season, Henderson is in a moment of shape, if it was today he would probably be in. All the players deserve to be in.”

  17. 'We always look to improve the team with signings'

    Liverpool v Huddersfield (Fri, 20:00 BST)

    Liverpool

    More on the summer transfer window: “We will try to improve the team always. We will try it always in training, I think that is the best way to do it.

    “The team is pretty well balanced. Our plans are not for the public, that’s how it is.

    “Will it be the biggest transfer window of LFC? No, but you’d have been surprised if I said yes.

    “Our eyes are always open. We always look. What happens if and when but nothing to say in the moment.”
