Klopp: “We will win” if we keep playing like we did Saturday

1 Comment

Jurgen Klopp struck all the right notes after Liverpool struck late to draw Chelsea 1-1 on Saturday at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues nabbed a league point in the 89th minute via Daniel Sturridge’s amazing strike, four days after blowing an early lead at Anfield as Chelsea bounced the Reds from the League Cup.

And, frankly, there could’ve been few complaints had Liverpool found a second goal on Saturday. Chelsea had two goal line clearances — those count — and stars Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino all had less than ideal performances.

“I’m completely fine, really. I want us to respond, react, perform. But today I saw a really good performance from my side in a difficult game after we’d lost on Wednesday against them.

“We gave them one proper chance, they used it and we didn’t use ours. That’s how life is. But as long as we create chances like we did tonight, we will win football games.”

Obviously wins are terrific in a title fight, especially when chasing Man City’s standard, but Liverpool’s point in London is very valuable. Frankly, there would’ve been few complaints from objective analysts had the Reds claimed all three points.

And Sturridge’s goal… wow.
