"It was a problem to land".

"Then the captain tried again and the second time was positive. The captain was very good".

Conte, however, said Chelsea would not allow jetlag or fatigue to affect their performance at Anfield.

Manchester City lead the way this season with a whopping 34 points taken from their first 12 league games.

"For sure this week was an intensive week for us but at the same time it is right I don't find an alibi or excuses".

Philippe Coutinho admits Liverpool must learn from Tuesday's 3-3 ChampionsLeague draw with Sevilla, despite the result keeping them on course to win Group E. She said, "Daddy, you look older with the beard".

"We must pay great attention tomorrow".

"Today we had a good training session and tried to prepare for Liverpool very well".

Jurgen Klopp has joked he is glad Mo Salah flopped at Chelsea, before Liverpool take on the west London club in the Premier League this weekend.

Conte has now asked his club to speak urgently with the Premier League in a bid to prevent a similar situation developing in future.

He was already a very good player, how I said a few times I saw him for the first time at Basel - he was already quick! He's a good player and very unsafe. He is a technical player but at the same time very fast and strong, good in one vs. ones and also very good to finish. "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".

Conte stated that there wouldn't be any room for excuses from his side when they face Liverpool, while highlighting the similarities he shares with his Liverpool counterpart, Jurgen Klopp. "At Chelsea he didn't play many games for whatever reason, but I am not too interested, because if he was scoring there he wouldn't have had the chance to come to Liverpool", said Fowler, who still works as an ambassador for Liverpool.
