Jurgen Klopp Shares His Theory On Why Mohamed Salah Flopped At Chelsea

Liverpool's defensive frailties have dogged them all season including in Sevilla on Tuesday

Chelsea beat Azerbaijan's Qarabag 4-0 on Wednesday to qualify from Champions League Group C and returned to London on Thursday after a 2,500-mile flight from Baku.

"We tried to land first time but it wasn't possible because of the wind. In these circumstances you feel a bit afraid, a bit scared, but the captain was very good". Only one day to prepare for the game.

"And I think all of the players, we all switched off a little bit and we thought that at 3-0 it was going to be a little bit hard for the opposition [to come back]". "To have only one day to prepare a big game, especially to have only one day to rest, is not right".

"Another player similar is Kevin De Bruyne and he is not doing too bad now". The captain then tried again and on the second time, it was positive. On that occasion, the City wingers pushed Chelsea's full backs much deeper than they're used to playing so as to force them into flat back five.

Conte asked if travel could affect Chelsea's performance: "For sure this week was intensive for us, but at the same time it's right not to find an alibi or an excuse, & try to play a good game against Liverpool". Last time Morata played three games in a row, and after 20 minutes against Man City he was injured.

"We must pay great attention tomorrow. This is my job".

Salah will be looking to continue his tremendous early-season form in Saturday's fixture, not least because a Liverpool win would bring them level on points with Antonio Conte's side in the Premier League table.

"He was very young and I think now he developed a lot", Conte said. He's a technical player, but at the same time he is very fast, very strong and very good in one v one situations. "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 also spoke of his respect for Liverpool counterpart Jurgen Klopp, whose demeanour on the touchline has attracted comparisons to Conte.
