Chelsea's Conte keen to turn screw on fragile Liverpool

"We can not waste time or points any more". Coming off a substantial dip in form, they still average two points per game, on pace for a 76 point season, which has never not been enough for Champions League qualification. We need the points.

His team are unbeaten against their rivals in the top six this season and boast the best record within that group of 12 points from a possible 18, including three at Stamford Bridge in September.

"I didn't hear the whistle and then he [Luiz] hits it early", Mignolet explained in a post-match interview with BT Sport. "I watched their games".

Liverpool have lost three consecutive games for the first time under the German and have been eliminated from the League Cup and the FA Cup in the last week.

And Conte has admitted that Liverpool would be dealt a severe psychological blow should they lose to his Chelsea side at Anfield.

It was a 3-0 reverse to the Gunners at Emirates Stadium that prompted Conte's switch to his favoured 3-4-2-1 formation and a record-equalling run of 13 Premier League wins in the same season.

"Honestly, I think we are a different team, not Liverpool". We don't get a chance to improve?

The second half saw Matip come under greater pressure but he displayed character in the heat of battle and his well timed sliding tackle ultimately led to a piercing Liverpool attack and the equaliser by Georginio Wijnaldum.




If Chelsea claim victories from both matches they will likely become nearly unstoppable in the title race, and it will indicate just how much they have improved since a tricky start to the season.

Conte's side arrives bursting with confidence and having safely navigated their way into the next round of the FA Cup despite, like Klopp, making several changes to personnel.

"I think most people will see it as a good performance and a good lift, more for the top four than for the title".

However, Liverpool couldn't get any momentum or rhythm going simply because Chelsea players did finally do their jobs well and that's been the story of games like this between the two clubs at Anfield over many years.

"We thought it would be possible yesterday: we had a plane there but he was not allowed to go in the plane so we had to wait".

"It has been a bad week, but we are looking beyond that".

"I am happy to work with my players".
