First-half goals from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Roberto Firmino helped leaders Liverpool defeat Chelsea 2-1 to extend their winning streak to 15 Premier League matches.
Following the game, the Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has faced the press.
On team performance, he said: “Very good in periods. Chelsea had their moments of course. Two wonderful goals, we could have had more chances. We didn’t score them. Chelsea scored theirs and it is a difficult place to go. It’s a big win. I’m not surprised by the character of my team anymore. We expect to fight for everything. We had a big job to do. Everyone thinks we should be first or second, but we just have to play football. The boys did really good.”
Liverpool are battling it out with Manchester City for the Premier League title.
“They are brilliant in moments, we are not bad as well. It’s not important, we play our football. We try to make things uncomfortable. I still don’t see it at the end is only two teams. There are 32 games to go,” said Klopp.
The German has also spoken about Chelsea’s Mason Mount: “Mason Mount was a surprise, playing, but we adapted well to different situations.”
Liverpool are five points clear of second-placed Manchester City. Chelsea fall to 11th place, on eight points.
