Weary Liverpool face Champions League chase from Chelsea

  • Weary Liverpool face Champions League chase from Chelsea

"It would be very hard to predict this type of season for Salah", Conte added.

The Blues are five points behind fourth-placed Tottenham and in danger of missing out on Champions League qualification for 2018-19, but Conte refused to entertain enquiries about his situation.

'We're speaking a few participant with particular traits: good method, and in addition very quick. This season I'm seeing a very clinical player, every opportunity, every chance he takes'.

But Conte insists he had no involvement in the decision to sanction Salah's sale.

The winger then made a £34m (fee reported by the BBC) return to the Premier League, signing for Liverpool who reached the Champions League final on Wednesday, defeating Roma 7-6 on aggregate despite losing 4-2 on the night.

Conte has acknowledged that the West Londoners still hold hope of edging out their rivals, but admits that they face a hard game against a Liverpool side who have just reached the Champions League final.




"This could be a good opportunity for us, but as I have said a lot of times, if we want to keep our hopes alive we have to win". We have to get three points. "Two experienced managers, we will see what happens".

For all intents and purposes it appeared that the Spanish striker - who had been Chelsea's key player in their 2014/15 title-winning season too - was firmly embedded back into the fold, but instead, literally weeks after the season had ended, Costa received word that he was no longer wanted at Stamford Bridge.

He told Football Focus: "If I play, it will be a direct duel against Salah".

"It is very unusual to have the whole season the same question in every press conference".

"Despite this, my answer is always the same: I have a contract with Chelsea".
