We gifted Chelsea too much space - van Dijk

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has highlighted his side's mistake in the super cup game against Chelsea yesterday.

Liverpool won the game 5-4 on penalties. After the game ended 2-2 after normal time and 30 minute of extra-time.

However, van Dijk has now admitted his side didn't really do well in the game and that they gifted Chelsea too much space.

'It was a good game to watch for a natural, but it was tough for both sides,' said van Dijk

'They played well and we had moments of good football, especially at the beginning of the second half.'

'We put them under pressure and created chances. We played a higher line and won the second balls.'

'At the beginning, the gaps were too big.'

'I said before the game that anything can happen in a final and in the end, the penalties decided the game.'

'I told Adrian before penalties he could be the hero tonight and he did so I'm happy for him and for the club.'
