Klopp on the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea

«We didn’t beat Chelsea. We won the penalty shootout. I’ve said several times that without luck you have no chance and he was on our side that day. We know how good Chelsea are. Both teams will go for the trophy. We look forward to this opportunity.» It’s a huge final and I’m really happy to be a part of it.»

On what can not be celebrated with the fans
