We Could Have Scored More Goals Against Chelsea  —Klopp

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp added salt into injury by admitting his side could have scored more in their 4-1 thrashing of Chelsea.

In the Reds’ first Premier League outing since Klopp announced his shock decision to quit at the end of the season, the German’s side emphatically proved their top-flight title credentials with a dominant victory.

Diogo Jota and the 20-year-old right-back Conor Bradley put Liverpool 2-0 ahead in the first half.

Dominik Szoboszlai and Luis Diaz completed a big scoreline in the second period, with Christopher Nkunku pulling a goal back for the Blues.

Liverpool should have scored more goals unfortunately, Darwin Nunez endured a frustrating night, hitting the woodwork a remarkable four times.

The Uruguayan slammed a penalty against the post and saw a further three efforts bounce off the post or crossbar.

Despite the missed chances, Klopp was delighted with his side’s high-energy pressing.

“The counter pressing was top. We had them in places they didn’t want to be,” Klopp told TNT Sports.

“The high press was really good. It is fair to say we could have scored one or two more.”

The win saw Liverpool, on 46 points, go five points clear of both Manchester City and Arsenal.

Klopp’s men will hope to maintain their leadership in the league table when they travel to the Emirates on Sunday to face Arsenal.
