Chelsea 1 – Liverpool 2: Henderson stunner helps Reds end Conte’s unbeaten Blues start

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp

“It was satisfying of course. From the first second we had unbelievably good movement.  We were quick in mind. We did really well. We deserved the lead at half-time.

“We have to learn how to manage the game plan. So often this season Chelsea scored in the last few seconds with a direct style. But I can’t remember too many chances from them. We had a few moments where we weren’t so good but that’s normal against a good team.

“We played football like hell. It was really nice to watch. In the second half it was a bit more difficult. After their goal, we managed it well.”

On Jordan Henderson’s goal: “It was nice, really nice. He’s such a hard worker, it was well deserved. He’s such a nice lad. There’s a lot of pressure on his shoulders.”
