Liverpool recorded their lowest possession in the Premier League since 2018 at Chelsea, a figure Jurgen Klopp has lambasted as “an absolute joke.”

“What we lacked in that game was rhythm, especially in possession,” Klopp said of the 1-1 draw.

“We had 35 percent possession, which is an absolute joke. That should not happen.

“There’s no game I can imagine, it can happen against City on a speical day or if it’s an idea to do it like that, but it was not our idea for that game.

“It happened because were in too much of a rush with the ball.”
