"I am very, very happy with the performance," said Tuchel. "It was clear we needed a complete performance in all aspects of the game. We did this, we were very brave with the ball and never lost intensity with the ball.
"We were always aggressive and very brave. This was the key. It was a top team performance and a deserved win.
"Both teams started in a high level of speed and intensity. We knew that. We told the team we don't want to give too much information. When you arrive in a match like this you cannot overthink it.
"We managed all situations very, very good. Very, very encouraging."
"You saw the game - it was a tight one, it was a close one, it was an intense one," Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp told BBC Sport. "We forced them to make mistakes, they forced us to make mistakes. They used one, we didn't use ours.
"Against Chelsea, it would be surprising to play them off the pitch - but we were in the game. It is just annoying to talk about the same things again and again. It is tough. We have to fight through this."
