Chelsea defeated Liverpool 1-0 away at Anfield, as a 42nd minute strike from Mason Mount was enough to seal the three points for Chelsea.

With one brilliant move from Chelsea, Mount showed good work with his feet to cut play and send a precise shot into the Liverpool net, far from the stretching arms of Alisson.

Speaking after the game, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admitted that he wasn’t pleased with his team’s defending, but also took out time to hail the quality of Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount.

“The individual quality of Mason Mount in that moment made the difference. It was a tight game, intense game. Both teams invested a lot. That is it pretty much,” Klopp told Sky Sports after the game.

“They had the goal they scored which was offside. The second half another counter attack, we had more situations around, the great one with Sadio Mane and other situations where we did not score.

“You have to defend differently and we didn’t do well there. There are a lot of things out there you have to consider. In the end we conceded one goal, we made the mistake there, the other was offside and you can say it was good defending but with all the possession we had you need to have more chances. Everything was really good until the final pass.

“Unfortunately we cannot say it is only at home. It is not about Anfield or whatever, it is in general, too often. In the decisive moments we have to improve. We have to show our quality in these moment and we don’t do that often enough.”
