“I’m really demanding to be honest, and I really want a lot of them”. First half we didn’t have the duels, we didn’t have the second ball, everything was for them. We never thought about anything else other than playing our football.
Klopp almost giggled when asked about Henderson’s strike from distance into the top corner.
“He did well and gets the benefit of all the hard work with a wonderful, wonderful strike”.
The goals gave the Reds a 2-0 lead after the first half, which Lovren called Liverpool’s finest 45 minutes thus far in the campaign.
“I told the lads before the game, everything can happen, there’s no guarantee of getting anything at Chelsea, but if we lose our way, the probability we get something, if we are really convinced about the kind of play it is bigger”.
A happy-sad homecoming for David Luiz, who’s now lost both of his Chelsea debuts to Liverpool by one-goal margins at Stamford Bridge.
Liverpool went level with Chelsea on 10 points in five games, and Henderson said he believed his side were well worth their fine start to the season.
“It’s a challenge for all of us to be 100 per cent in training and that’s what keeps us improving every day”.
We all enjoy seeing managers behaving like supporters when moments of pure joy are on the agenda and few flawless that art better than Klopp, whose close bond with his players was evident as he celebrated their latest win. Anyone who has played Chelsea knows they are organised, especially under Conte.
“I think [conceding the first goal] was more about [paying] attention, because normally you have a line to defend on a free kick but they took the free kick short and played quickly and we didn’t organize the line quickly, so that’s why there were two or three players [open] at the back.”
“The spirit is really, around the club, perfect, so we just need to keep working stronger and stronger”. We’re acting like a team.
