ANTONIO CONTE IS wary of focusing too much on Chelsea old boy Mohamed Salah as the Italian believes Liverpool carry multiple threats.

"To get to your house at six in the morning is not simple and then to rest and recover". Hazard added that the Blues are aware of the danger posed by Salah, per Fifield: "At Liverpool he is still doing well, so I think we need to be careful with him".

"But we have to do this and today we've had a good training session and we've tried to prepare for the game against Liverpool very well. But for sure to have only one day to prepare, especially only one day to rest, is not right for anyone, not only for Chelsea, but for all teams".

"But really, it's a point for us and we are still top of the group, so it was an important point".

And Conte is annoyed that for the second time this season, the defending champions face a big match on a Saturday so soon after a hard away tie in Europe on a Wednesday.

Salah is the Premier League top scorer, having netted nine times, and he has also returned four goals in five games in the UEFA Champions League.

"Victor Moses's condition is good, he needs time to find his best form, but he is in the squad for tomorrow and I put him on the bench", Conte told journalists.

"It is not right to find excuses and the team must try to play a good game against a strong Liverpool side", he said.

Conte on fixture schedule: "I tried to speak to my club about this problem to try & pay more attention for the future". "He is a good player and very risky".

"You have to judge two different situations", he said.

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.

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