Chelsea Manager Antonio Conte Hints At Rotating His Team Against Qarabag

Willian defended the awarding of a penalty for a foul on him by Qarabag captain Rasad Sadiqov in Chelsea's 4-0 Champions League victory.

"I don't like to find excuses or alibis, but this is the reality".

And Liverpool's one day's extra rest isn't likely to give them a significant advantage.

"When people hear the complaints of the coach, also someone has to help us". The centre-back remained in Liverpool while the squad were in Seville to undertake sessions and Klopp told the club's official website: "He is good". Antonio Conte's side face Premier League rivals Liverpool at Anfield this weekend.

Liverpool conceded one goal in wins against Maribor, Huddersfield Town, West Ham United and Southampton to stop leaking goals at an alarming rate. The press and the TV to underline the situation, because it is odd.

"Now I think after tonight we must be pleased that we reached our first target to go through to the next round, [and] to avoid the Atletico game being decisive for us". N'Golo Kante doesn't look set to feature in Azerbaijan so the Blues will be relying on Bakayoko and Drinkwater to control the game from midfield. We didn't adapt well against Man City so we need to do better on Saturday.

Chelsea will have been looking for a positive reaction in the tournament after they were embarrassed last time out in Rome when they were beaten 3-0 by AS Roma and they duly delivered.

The trio are in devastating form and you can get odds of 9/2 on Salah to score the first goal on Saturday, which should be a tempting bet for any Liverpool fan.

15 of Chelsea's Premier League goals have been scored by Spanish players this season - only two teams in the Spanish Liga have seen more of their goals scored by Spaniards than this tally in 2017-18; Real Sociedad (18) and Valencia (16).

Willian was asked about the decision on BT Sport's post-match coverage.
