Jurgen Klopp spoke to BT Sport at full-time and admitted ‘there is space for improvement’.
“I thought we started well in the first half, started very well in the second half but couldn’t keep it up, good spells.”
I said before the game, we have to be ready for little steps and this is a little step, we have a clean sheet against Chelsea – which is good.”
“We didn’t create a lot of chances or whatever, but we had them. They had their chances as well. We defended in the second half with passion and not with clear organisation. We were too deep in these moments.”
“I am okay with 0-0 today because as I said before the game you have to be ready for these steps, and you have to accept it as well.
“Would I have wished for 45 (mins) and 45 (mins) like we started each half? Yes. But we can deal with that as well.”
“These kind of games have and it’s absolutely fine We have to build on on stuff and we have good performances today. Everybody was committed to defending definitely.”
“First half we won balls but we gave them away too quickly. Play the ball immediately forward without controlling it, Thiago did that which was unnecessary. I told the boys, 70-75% performance so far, there is space for improvements.”
