Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp to BBC Match of the Day: "I don't think you can have an outstanding team performance when the individuals don't work together. The start was brilliant, we were really going for them.

"They tried to find [Cole] Palmer and we had struggles when the pressing was not right. We were outstanding, it was a top game. We could have scored and should have scored more goals. You cannot score five, six goals against Chelsea if you are not outstanding."

On Conor Bradley: "What a wonderful kid he is. Outstanding finish, the whole game, the contribution, the involvement. It's a job to play against [Raheem] Sterling, that's not easy. I'm really happy for him. He's a very serious young man and that was pretty special I have to say. We saw in pre-season. He is really doing well.

"A few weeks ago when I was in holiday a few Bolton fans asked if they could have Bradley back but it's too late! For us it's important because we could not have put this string of results together without these boys. Without [Jarell] Quansah, Conor and Bobby [Clark], they really helped us through this period. Joe Gomez has created his own position if you want. It's really good, really happy for the boys."

On Darwin Nunez: "He was really disappointed with himself about missing the penalty but he is a handful. It was really hard for him. Then he headed against the crossbar. He sets up a goal even after the massive disappointment. That's the most important thing. He is in outstanding shape, still a bit unlucky so it's all fine."
