Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp has come out to say that Roberto Firmino is not in good shape after his injury vs Chelsea. He recently revealed that it could be a muscle injury for the Brazilian, and he hopes it is not too serious.
According to him, Liverpool’s goal was very deserved because it was a clear penalty from Reece James in his box.
He added that Liverpool only struggled to break Chelsea down in the 2nd half because the Blues defended deeper.
His words, “Is Firmino okay? Not really. Probably a muscle. I hope it is not too big.”
On the game, “The goal we got was obviously very deserved. I think it is a clear penalty. We forced it in that situation,”
“Second half everyone thinks ‘come on’. There is a definite advantage in possession, you have to outnumber them and defend them really high, but the defensive structure changes in that case that they are only defending slightly deeper but they have eight players defending that area around the box so we couldn’t use that.”
“We had our shots from distance, I would have loved to have been a bit closer for the rebound but it was a good game.”
