Manager Jurgen Klopp urges patience from Liverpool

London: Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was thrilled with his side's late equaliser in their 1-1 draw against Chelsea at Anfield, but bemoaned his players' lack of patience.
Eden Hazard scored for Chelsea. But an injury-time header from Christian Benteke ensured a point apiece. But Klopp wants his team to learn the art of remaining calm when everything is not quite going to plan.
"I said to my players it was the most important game of the season because we could learn most from it," said the German, whose side remain eighth, 10 points above Chelsea.
"We showed in the first 15 minutes what we are capable of. We were great — wonderful football, without scoring.
"But there was not enough faith in our own quality so we lost patience and when you lose patience in football it's always difficult.
"We had a lot of moments around the box when we shot when we should have passed.
"It's quite difficult to say 'Be patient' when everybody is shouting 'Run!'"
