Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp says he has sympathy for Chelsea over COVID-19.

However, the German gaffer believes his countryman, Thomas Tuchel was still able to play a full-strength team for their 0-0 draw with Wolves on Sunday.

Chelsea had requested for the postponement of their match against Wolves but it was turned down by the Premier League.

The Blues currently have seven players unavailable due to COVID-19 – Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner, Callum Hudson-Odoi are all out of action.

Tuchel was forced to rush N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic back from injury.

Liverpool, meanwhile, were without Thiago Alcantara, Virgil van Dijk, Fabinho and Curtis Jones for their fixture against Tottenham due to COVID-19.

“Thomas Tuchel… I saw the bench today from Chelsea, come on… he has to play [Mateo] Kovacic, he has to come back from a long-term injury,” the Liverpool manager told Sky Sports

Liverpool maintain their second spot in the Premier League after a draw, trailing Manchester City with three points.
