Rudiger sends warning to Salah ahead of Chelsea return

"This will be a hard game against Chelsea on Sunday, but after securing a place in the Champions league final we will be full of confidence". Firstly, despite signing Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid, the loss of Costa left the Blues woefully short of firepower - especially with Tammy Abraham sent to Swansea on loan and Conte not trusting Michy Batshuayi.

When speaking to reporters on Friday, Antonio Conte is quoted by the Metro insisting he is taking zero responsibility for Salah's departure from Chelsea.

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. But... this type of season, it would be very hard to predict.

"Liverpool may have one eye on the Champions League final and perhaps will be mentally and emotionally worn out after beating Roma (on aggregate) in midweek so hopefully they won't be at their best".

This could have been used for desilting of Tungabhadra Dam for the benefit of the district's farmers", he said. The Vijayanagara kingdom was a model State with much natural resources and wealth, said Modi.

However, a distinctly-unimpressed Conte said at a Press conference: "You're asking my opinion after the first game against Burnley". But we have to try and start with three points against Liverpool. If Antonio Conte can gee the team up and make them realise there is a still a chance of sneaking into the top four then we can get a win. They are in the FA Cup final later this month, but that's not good enough for Chelsea.

Whether that is Conte's last game in charge remains to be seen.

"I think Chelsea will struggle to keep Mohamed Salah quiet".

"It's unusual to have one question in every Press conference". I have a contract with Chelsea and I work everyday giving my best.
