Rafael Benitez has warned Liverpool fans about gloating too soon over the Anfield side's eight point lead over champions Manchester United.
For many Anfield fans, such an advantage over their greatest rivals with the season almost a third over, is cause for celebration.
But boss Benitez said: "I don't think I will be celebrating until the gap is 20 points."
The end product of a weekend of frantic action at the top of the Barclays Premier League is that Manchester United sit eight points behind leaders Chelsea and second placed Liverpool - who have a whopping 14-goal difference deficit to make up on the west Londoners.
Both clubs are on 29 points, with United's defeat away to Arsenal leaving them in fourth spot.
Benitez said: "We were aware before we played West Brom on Saturday that Manchester United had lost, but it was not something that we allowed to effect how we played.
"If you spend the whole time with a calculator considering what others are doing, it will drive you crazy.
"You must concentrate on what you are doing. United may be trailing us, but we are not looking at what they are doing, only ourselves."
