Klopp thrilled: Liverpool played football like hell!

Liverpool played "football like hell" for victory at Chelsea, says manager Jurgen Klopp.

Dejan Lovren and Jordan Henderson struck in the first half to put Liverpool 2-0 up after 31 minutes, with Antonio Conte's Chelsea side unable to deal with the visitors' pace or movement.

Chelsea rallied as Diego Costa struck on the hour-mark, but it was not enough to make up for a desperately poor start from the Blues on David Luiz's second debut for the club.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Klopp said: "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."
