Despite claiming the Uefa Super Cup title on Wednesday night, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted he made a mistake heading into the match.
Liverpool came out trumps over Chelsea in the Super Cup after securing a 5-4 penalty shootout win over their Premier League rivals following a 2-2 draw after 120 minutes of football.

The Reds were unconvincing in their victory, however, and the performances of a number of players were questioned, none more so than that of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
The 26-year-old was a surprise inclusion in Liverpool's starting line-up ahead of Roberto Firmino but was substituted off at half-time, and Klopp has since admitted that it may have been a mistake to start the England international.
"I didn't say a lot to Ox (at half-time), I don't think it was necessary. It was very important for him to have these minutes," Klopp said, as reported by the Liverpool Echo.
"It's a position he can play and he can play much better than he did tonight. That's how it is after a long injury, you have to find your rhythm.
"In training it's already there. In the game he had good moments but not enough for his quality.
"It was a very intense game and I had to make that decision because I didn't want to push him. We wanted to give him an opportunity to shine.
"It wasn't as possible as we would have wished in that position, but that was my mistake and not his as I made that decision."
Liverpool are the most successful English side to have competed in the Super Cup, having won the title four times.
