Both managers are expected to be frantic on the sidelines for the duration of the game, with Chelsea looking to close in on leaders Manchester City, while Klopp's Liverpool know that a win will see them draw level on points with Conte's side.

The Egyptian has made a big splash since returning to the Premier League from Serie A club Roma in the summer, scoring nine goals to lead the scoring charts.

Conte on fixture schedule: "I tried to speak to my club about this problem to try & pay more attention for the future".

ANTONIO CONTE IS wary of focusing too much on Chelsea old boy Mohamed Salah as the Italian believes Liverpool carry multiple threats. For me, it's very hard to stay sitting and watch the game. But if they come and play the way they can, and are more offensive, I think it plays into Liverpool's hands, it leaves space for the likes of Mane and Salah to capitalise. "But we've worked very well to try to have a good game against Liverpool". If you look at his form last season at Roma he was very good, he scored a lot of goals. I don't like to find an alibi or excuse, and it is the same for my players.


He has looked to be worth the outlay, and Liverpool have been rewarded for their patience after Chelsea pipped them to Salah's signature from FC Basel back in 2014. He's a technical player, but at the same time he is very fast, very strong and very good in one v one situations.

"We like to live the game with intensity and passion, stay on the touchline to try and help our players", the Chelsea boss said.


"We had a great first half and then in the second half we let everything unravel and so we were all feeling very frustrated".

"They have a good coach, a good identity and great organisation, especially offensively they are very risky so we must pay great attention".
