Klopp: United defeat doesn't reflect how good Chelsea are
- Klopp has analyzed Chelsea's latest clash against Man United.
- He claims that the result doesn't reflect the display Lampard's side produced.
- The German manager praises the Blues' flexibility and being 'a football-playing side'.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes that Chelsea are not so poor as the 4-0 defeat at Old Trafford suggests.
Of course, he cannot allow himself and his players to underrate their next opponents, but still one can find positives in praise from the manager of Champions League-winning side.
"They were good and they played Borussia Monchengladbach in their last pre-season game a couple of days before, plus the Salzburg game plus the Man United game, these are the three games we used for analysis," Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com.
"They have a clear way of playing, it’s a football-playing side, it’s flexible, they have different formations and stuff like this and I like what I saw, to be honest, but yeah, they lost 4-0 - that’s then a really hard lesson.
"United was pretty clinical and that’s how football can be, but of course we don’t have lesser respect because they lost 4-0 against Man United. No, it’s the other way around - especially in the first 60 minutes they were just really good.
"[They are] a good football team and we use three games and try to make the right conclusion of that and do the right things in the game."
