Liverpool vs Chelsea: Conte reveals why Victor Moses won't start

Conte said: "I know him very well because he played in Italy for many years".

Chelsea will likely line up with a 3-5-2 which from an aerial view looks infinitely more solid than Liverpool's 4-5-1 however it might be that Jurgen Klopp could work to a similar game-plan as Pep Guardiola when Man City visited Chelsea earlier in the year.

"There was a lot of wind and we tried to land the first time, but it wasn't possible for this reason", Conte said.

"In these circumstances, you feel a bit afraid and scared but the captain was very good".

"My daughter said to me you look older". I noticed pre-season he was a handful, I know people say pre-season is not the Premier League, but he has hit the ground running, he has scored goals and offered assists.

"But we have to do this and today we've had a good training session and we've tried to prepare for the game against Liverpool very well".

Mohamed Salah is a "dangerous" player, according to Antonio Conte.

Manchester City lead the way this season with a whopping 34 points taken from their first 12 league games. "But really, it's a point for us and we are still top of the group, so it was an important point", the Brazilian added. "They are a strong team, good coach, a good identity & great organisation, especially offensively".

'Salah is a good player, he's very risky, hes a technical player but fast the same time, very fast, very strong, very good in one versus one, very good at finishing.

"It's very hard for us to not show this passion and for me, it's very hard to stay seated to watch the game. We need to pay attention but not only to him but to Mane, Firmino, Sturridge and all their strikers because They have a great attacking potential as a team".

"It is very hard to not show this passion".

"If he would've played already better at Chelsea, we would not have him probably in this moment, so I'm happy about the situation".
