Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp to the BBC: "Outstanding, it was an incredible, intense game against Chelsea - they would have deserved it exactly the same way, like in the Carabao Cup. That's how small the margins are.

"I couldn't be more proud of my boys, the shift they put in, how hard they fought, the early changes. I think Virgil is fine, but his muscle was hurt.

"All of these things, missing good chances, overcoming good moments from Chelsea, then having really good moments ourselves...

"Then in the penalty shoot-out, it was nerve-racking, my nails are gone but I really feel for Chelsea. For the second time, 120 minutes and you get nothing, that's too hard. But for us I'm pretty happy.

"We are mentality monsters but there were mentality monsters in blue as well - it was one penalty. Chelsea played outstanding but in the end there must be one winner and that was us today."

Tuchel sad but proud

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel: "Like in the last final, in the Carabao Cup, it's no regrets. I told the team I'm proud.

"We were sure that we would be competitive and make life very difficult for Liverpool. We did it again. We struggled in the first 15 minutes but then we were excellent for the whole match. We got to 0-0 against maybe the best attacking team in the world and we also created a lot of chances. We deserved it, as they deserved it as well, but again we lose on penalties.

"We are very disappointed of course. We are sad but at the same time proud.

"I was sure we would win today. I was sure before and I was sure during the match that momentum was on our side. I was sure until the very last minute but unfortunately I was not right. I have to digest it and keep on going. That's life in sports.

"We have everything it takes to win trophies, we proved it. We have a Club World Cup and a European Super Cup and I don't feel sorry this was at the beginning of the season and in winter.

"We were good in Champions League, strong in both domestic cups, we can produce peak performances and we have the mentality in the club to shape the mentality of the players, but Man City and Liverpool have shown you need this on a consistency."
