Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has rubbed salt in the wound by acknowledging that his team could have scored even more goals in their 4-1 victory over Chelsea.

The match marked Liverpool’s first Premier League game since Klopp’s surprising announcement that he would leave the club at the end of the season.

The German manager’s side demonstrated their title-winning potential with a commanding win.

Goals from Diogo Jota and 20-year-old right-back Conor Bradley gave Liverpool a 2-0 lead in the first half.

In the second half, Dominik Szoboszlai and Luis Diaz added to the scoreline, while Christopher Nkunku scored a consolation goal for Chelsea.

Despite the convincing win, Liverpool could have scored more goals, as Darwin Nunez hit the woodwork an astonishing four times.

The Uruguayan player hit a penalty shot against the post and had three more attempts that hit the post or crossbar.

Despite these missed opportunities, Klopp, the coach, was very happy with his team’s aggressive and energetic playing style.

“The counter pressing was top. We had them in places they didn’t want to be,” Klopp told TNT Sports.

“The high press was really good. It is fair to say we could have scored one or two more.”

Liverpool’s victory has put them in a strong position with 46 points, giving them a five-point lead over both Manchester City and Arsenal.

Klopp’s team will aim to hold onto their top spot in the league table as they face Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday.
