Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola are ‘different class’ according to Chelsea manager Frank Lampard. The former England midfielder saw how his team beat Manchester City 2-1 on Thursday to hand Liverpool their first ever Premier League and their first league title in thirty years.
Overall Chelsea were the deserved winners, with Christian Pulisic and Willian scoring the goals. “It was tough,” Lampard told BT Sport. “When you come up against a team of Manchester City’s quality – in individuals, in the way they’re coached – for me, they’re the best, in terms of the way they play football, so great to watch.”
“Pep and Jurgen Klopp are different class, hence why Liverpool are winning the league tonight! We had to work every bit that we could to try and get a result. We had to work defensively so, so hard and we did it, and we created the better chances on the night.” With the win, Chelsea have kept their five point lead on Manchester United, who beat Sheffield United 3-0 a day earlier.
