‘Quality’ Chelsea will be fitting champions, admits Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has conceded that ‘perfect’ Chelsea will be ‘deserving champions’ this season.

After an indifferent start, which included a defeat at Arsenal and a home loss to Klopp’s Liverpool, Antonio Conte changed Chelsea’s formation to devastating effect – and the rest is history.

The Blues are currently 10 points clear of second placed Tottenham and are odds-on to seal the Premier League title with just 11 games left to play.

And Klopp says that they have the perfect balance of attack and defence, but also are highly motivated after disappointment last season.

“They have the perfect players and the perfect manager. It is the perfect fit,” Klopp said.

“First they created the momentum. Then they used the momentum. Then they stayed consistent.

“I think we all agree it is a well-organised side. They have an experienced defence, highly motivated after what happened last year.

“I think they know they have had luck with injuries but that’s how it is. They could play the same side for a long time. Quality, though, and being organised helps a lot.”
