Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool can still improve after beating Chelsea to maintain 100 per cent start to Premier League season

Liverpool lead second-placed Manchester City by five points after six games.

Klopp told talkSPORT: “Poor decision-making, our passes in decisive moments, next week we’ll talk about something else probably.

“But winning a ball is good, but if you win the ball, you have to make the right decision in space.

“They do that very often, really good, but Chelsea is a proper, proper football team, so it was hard, it was a really hard shift today.

“The boys did it and I’m really pleased about that.”

First-half goals from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Roberto Firmino gave Liverpool a 2-0 lead at Stamford Bridge, before N’Golo Kante pulled one back for the hosts.

The Reds had to defend a barrage of Chelsea attacks late on, and were let off the hook when Mason Mount skied a huge chance in the 90th minute.

Klopp added: “We had to fight for it, and the boys were ready for that. I’m really happy about the way we played today.

“We have a lot of things to improve, but it’s always like this.
