Antonio Conte hails 'dangerous' Mohamed Salah ahead of Chelsea's clash with Liverpool

Did Chelsea's Willian mean to score this stunning equalizer against Liverpool

I noticed pre-season he was a handful, I know people say pre-season is not the Premier League, but he has hit the ground running, he has scored goals and offered assists.

Maybe because of the manager, because of the players, I don't know.

Antonio Conte has revealed how his preparations for Saturday's match against Liverpool at Anfield have been hampered by a late return from a Champions League match in Azerbaijan and by an aborted landing at Gatwick which left both he and his players afraid and exhausted.

His form in Italy, firstly in Florence and then with Roma, convinced Liverpool to part with a club-record £36.9m to finally bring the former Basel man to Mersey side - and so far he has flourished, scoring 14 goals in his first 19 games to become an instant Anfield hero. The second half was very unusual for many reasons, but they are a really good team defensively and offensively.

"He was very young in a very strong team and didn't come through. I think that the first half, the way we went into the game, we have to go into the second half (like that) too", the twinkle-toed midfielder continued.

"This is not the first time, in only 1.5 months we had two similar situations and also before a big game against Manchester City and now against Liverpool". "Salah is a good player, he is very unsafe. I don't think he has to prove something and I don't think he sees it like that".

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.

'Salah is a good player, he's very risky, hes a technical player but fast the same time, very fast, very strong, very good in one versus one, very good at finishing.

"It's very hard for us to not show this passion and for me, it's very hard to stay seated to watch the game. I consider him one of the best coaches in the world". "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".
