Teams who win Champions League are lucky, says Antonio Conte

Roma took up the option before selling Salah on to Liverpool for £34m last summer, and the Egyptian has blossomed into one of the world's deadliest goalscorers at Anfield, scoring 43 goals in 49 appearances to lead the club to their first Champions League final since 2007.

"One referee's decision can settle your future totally".

And current Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has attempted to free himself of any culpability as it relates to the Londoners' perceived folly in shipping Mohamed Salah off to Italy. If you put also this on me, I'm in trouble!

At one point the players all posed for photos as they looked to commemorate what has been an incredible week for them.

"I think they'll be sharp and should play with urgency with what's now at stake and they can also catch Liverpool in recovery mode". For sure we are talking about a really good player. "It would be very hard to predict this type of season for Salah. Every opportunity, every chance he has, he is taking them very well".

The Egyptian has 42 goals this season in 49 matches and now leads the Premier League top scorers chart with 31 - the joint most in a 38 game Premier League season.

On Friday the players seemed a million miles away from those kind of concerns though as they trained in the sun with smiles on their faces.

"For this reason, I think that to win the Champions League you must be more lucky".

"Now our target, our focus is to finish in the best possible way, to try to fight for a place in the Champions League", he added.

The Blues have a game in hand over Liverpool, who sit six points ahead in third. Then we'll see what happens. "They need to win and we want to".

"It won't be easy against United but we want to give the best until the end".
