“The longer things like this happen the more likely it is to change,” he told reporters Friday.
“We go there of course to get a result. We cannot go to Chelsea and guarantee that you win the game, they are just too strong for that.”
Penalties were needed to separate the two sides on that occasion after the scores was level at2-2 after 30 minutes of extra time.
Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley says his side can take confidence from the match, despite missing out on lifting the trophy.
“Every side is beatable on the day. It just comes down to hard work, putting the extra yards in, and a little bit of luck. Big games bring the best out of all players.”
Under Klopp’s reign, Liverpool has looked frightening in attack. The awesome trio of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino have run riot against Premier League defenses and have started this season in similarly impressive form.
Despite its success going forward, Liverpool has looked vulnerable in defense as of late and has kept just one clean sheet in the league.
Even UEFA Player of the Year Virgil van Dijk has looked slightly off the pace and was at fault for Napoli’s second goal during Tuesday’s defeat in Europe.
It’s a potential frailty that Chelsea will be keen to take advantage of with its roster of young attacking talent.
The likes of Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori have breathed new life into the club which lost star attacker Eden Hazard to Real Madrid in the summer.
That trio of youngsters have all been given a chance in the Chelsea first team by new boss Frank Lampard and have so far relished in the opportunity.
Most notably, Abraham, 21, is the league’s current joint top scorer with seven goals, three more than Liverpool’s Mane and Salah have each managed.
The maturity and progress shown by his young side has pleased Lampard in recent weeks to a point where he believes it can cope with “one of the best teams in the country.”
“It’s a club that I love and I feel at home. It’s great to be around familiar faces. I am working towards that,” he said, on his tenure to date.
“I have seen signs of improvement and it is good to see that. I am in the moment, and I am working towards something.”
Klopp praises Lampard
Lampard is yet to win a competitive home game since his appointment but has continued to receive a wonderful reception from his adoring supporters.
The former England international is still the club’s top scorer (211) and won three league titles during his 13-year spell at Stamford Bridge.
His Chelsea side currently sit joint third in the league and Lampard has garnered widespread praise for his trust in youth.
“It’s not my job to talk about other managers but what I can say is that they play exciting football,” he said.
“He did the same job at Derby [County], so I’m not surprised he’s doing a really good job at Chelsea.”
On Chelsea’s young stars Klopp said: “Tammy Abraham is now a £60m ($74.8m) player, Mason Mount is for sure a £60m ($74.8m) player, if not more, Callum Hudson-Odoi was that already.”
Hudson-Odoi, 18, signed a new long-term contract which will keep him at his boyhood club until 2024.
The youngster burst onto the scene last season but has been recovering from an Achilles injury since April.
EPL meets Twitter
Meanwhile Premier League officials have been meeting with Twitter to discuss concerns surrounding discriminatory and hateful conduct on the social media platform.
Chelsea’s Abraham is just one of a number of players to have been racially abused online this season and he told CNN Sport that Twitter needs to take more responsibility to fight such abuse.
