  • Antonio Conte believes his side deserved three points against Liverpool

Salah could have been turning out for Chelsea rather than Liverpool had he not been allowed to leave by former manager Jose Mourinho, but Conte is keen to avoid any criticism of that decision of of his club's previous regime. It won't be easy but at the same time we have to do our best. I want to bring him on the bench and then to decide if there is the necessity to put him in [the team] or not.

He also commented on the flight troubles he and his squad encountered while flying back to London from their UEFA Champions League game against Qarabag in Azerbaijan.

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

"He was a kid when he came to Chelsea, now he's a man", the German said. I don't like to find an alibi or excuse, and it is the same for my players.

"He was very young in a very strong team and didn't come through".

Liverpool have won four of their last five games in all competitions, with the only setback coming on Tuesday when they blew a 3-0 lead to draw 3-3 at Sevilla in the Champions League.

"My daughter said to me you look older". If you look at his form last season at Roma he was very good, he scored a lot of goals. Obviously it was hard in these times to come in the [Chelsea] team, they had already a fantastic offensive team.

Eden Hazard has hailed his former teammate, Mohamed Salah as a top player, who did not get enough chances at Chelsea.

Salah was previously on the books at Stamford Bridge before his 2016 move to the Italian capital, but Conte regards him as just one of several quality players for the Reds.

"They lost two very decisive players in [Nemanja] Matic and [Diego] Costa", Klopp said at his pre-match news conference when asked why Chelsea have fallen away. It is always good to play against a friend but Liverpool is not only about Salah.

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

The Chelsea head coach drew comparisons between himself and Jurgen Klopp's management styles, both can regularly be seen frantically gesturing to their players from the touchline throughout games.

"We had a great first half and then in the second half we let everything unravel and so we were all feeling very frustrated". For me it is very hard to stay seated and to watch the game.
