Teams who win Champions League are lucky, says Antonio Conte

Mark Lawrenson

"They really need points this weekend though and from their perspective they've got to capitalise on Liverpool's emotional jet lag from their achievements of making the Champions League final".

Chelsea's decision to part with Salah has been widely criticised in light of his explosion in form and last week Mourinho insisted that he was not the one who ended the forward's time at Stamford Bridge, but Conte is adamant that he had no influence over the matter either.

"I think this season for Salah is a fantastic season".

Liverpool will play Real Madrid in Kiev on May 23 and Klopp will be hoping he can end his five-match losing streak in finals. I knew him when he played in Italy but it would be very hard to predict this type of season.

"We are talking about a player with specific characteristics: good technique, and also very fast. Every chance he has he's very good to take the opportunity".

The Egyptian has 42 goals this season in 49 matches and now leads the Premier League top scorers chart with 31 - the joint most in a 38 game Premier League season. "We know it is in the DNA of Real Madrid to win the Champions League", he said.

The Blues have a game in hand over Liverpool, who sit six points ahead in third. "They need to win and we want to".
