Goals from Dejan Lovren and Jordan Henderson secured an excellent win for Liverpool to continue their strong start to the season
Jurgen Klopp hailed Jordan Henderson’s goal from heaven as his Liverpool side played “football from hell”.
Henderson’s sensational 35th-minute strike capped a devastating first-half display and ended Chelsea’s unbeaten start.
Klopp , whose side move into the top four, said: “It was football like hell. Very lively, very flexible.
“Our build-up was brilliant in the first half. I was really happy with the style of play and the confidence we had.”
The Liverpool boss was so delighted at full-time, he appeared to snub Antonio Conte as he ran onto the pitch to congratulate his players.
Dejan Lovren had opened the scoring in the 17th minute. Diego Costa hit a 61st-minute consolation but Liverpool survived a second-half rally from Antonio Conte’s side.
Klopp, who sent out an attacking 4-3-3 formation despite being away from home, added: “Everyone asks me about Klopp football.
“I like good football. We have to have options for everything. When we have the ball, playing; when they have the ball, defending.
“There is no kind of Klopp football. We adapt the quality to the skills of the player, and try and win a lot of games of football.
“I’ve heard the word risk too often. But then the other players play this kind of football, so that’s nice. We played last time here like this after only three weeks together. We want to win football games.”
The win continues Liverpool’s impressive start to the season after they smashed four at Arsenal and at home to champions Leicester.
