While Liverpool's capitulation in Spain ruined the momentum built up by three league wins, Klopp's side have conceded only one league goal at Anfield this season and the German is yet to lose to Chelsea in five clashes since taking over two years ago.

'At the same time I understand he needs a bit of rest because he's playing every game.

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.

"It's really hard in this league to play the same season like you did before so they are in a position they probably expected to be".

"The competition is always there". The last time the third-bottom Hammers played on a Friday they were hammered by Brighton - a result that hastened the exit of Slaven Bilic.

A brace from Roberto Firmino and a strike from Sadio Mane had given the five-time champions a commanding lead with 45 minutes to go, but defensive errors enabled the hosts to come roaring back into the tie. I saw the ability Salah had because I trained with him a lot.

"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. 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. But many other players have been released by Chelsea and haven't gone on. There was a lot of talent there and you couldn't pick everybody.

Midfielder Can has a muscular injury that could see him miss out, but Lallana might make his first appearance of the season. He has great pace and a really good touch.

"I think to only have one day to prepare for a big game, especially to only have one day to rest is not right for all the teams, not only for Chelsea". "His movement is brilliant".
