Chelsea lost to Liverpool in Wednesday’s UEFA Super Cup clash on penalties after Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian saved Tammy Abraham’s penalty.
The Blues were the better side for long spells during the UEFA Super Cup final and the loss was harsh on Chelsea.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was full of praise for Chelsea and admitted the game was difficult for Liverpool.
“It feels big, to be honest. It was a very difficult game for both teams and it’s about winning it at the end, so all good,” Klopp said.
“We showed character, Chelsea showed character as well so it was like boxing. Proper knocks from both sides.
“I think that nobody in the stadium wanted twice fifteen minutes [at the end]. I think the last 15 minutes was really a killer. But that’s how it is. We came through. I’m not sure about the penalty. That’s it.
“A really good Chelsea side. We had good moments. We started well, then we dropped too deep. We couldn’t hold our football. It made no sense. But it’s really early in the season. It was already our third competitive game without a pre-season. So, we have to fight.”
