What Jurgen Klopp said to Liverpool players before Chelsea

Liverpool would beat Norwich, Preston, Leicester and Arsenal on the road to the final.

When doing so, Klopp opted to used a wide range of players from Liverpool’s academy, many of which were not in the squad vs Chelsea.

However, when speaking to his side ahead of the final, Klopp made special mention of the players not involved:

“Today I had to make a few real tough decisions,” Klopp stated. “And I said to the boys in the meeting, including the ones that were not on the teamsheet, ‘this is my squad , plus – and I hope I don’t forget anyone – Tyler Morton, who was slightly injured, Conor (Bradley), Owen (Beck), Harvey (Blair), Elijah (Dixon-Bonner) played some minutes as well, Adrian saved our ass in Preston’.

“The whole journey was absolutely outstanding. Without Takumi (Minamino) and Divock (Origi), the goals they scored in the competition, we would not be here.

“We were 3-1 down against Leicester, most of the people wrote us off at the moment, wonderful story, came back, penalty shoot-out, won it.

“Then we had to change the way. The home game with Arsenal, 0-0 against 10 men, nobody really positive about the second leg and we went there and won in a really nice manner. Now tonight against Chelsea.”
