Jurgen Klopp: 'Mohamed Salah has nothing to prove to Chelsea'

Klopp laments ref obstruction in Chelsea draw

"Disappointing time? I really can't get it".

The plane carrying the Blues back from the Champions League tie against Qarabag had to abort its first landing at Gatwick in the early hours of Thursday morning.

"It was a problem to land". We tried to land the first time but it wasn't possible. If you look at his form last season at Roma he was very good, he scored a lot of goals.

Salah is the Premier League top scorer, having netted nine times, and he has also returned four goals in five games in the UEFA Champions League.

"He has quality but in that period I remember we had me, Willian, Oscar, so for him it was not easy".

Reflecting on that fact, Coutinho stated: "If you had offered us a draw (before the game) that would have been fine and (felt) better than the way the game went". "They have to pay more attention to give possibility to the team to recover". So I have to pay great attention in all situations.

"Today we had a good training session and tried to prepare for Liverpool very well".

Mohamed Salah is a "dangerous" player, according to Antonio Conte.

My daughter is more important than my wife.

Maybe because of the manager, because of the players, I don't know. "Salah is a good player, he is very unsafe". He's a technical player but at the same time very fast, very strong, very good one v one and a very good finisher.

"They have a good coach, a good identity and great organisation, especially offensively they are very unsafe so we must pay great attention".

Jurgen Klopp's side looked to be coasting to victory on Spanish soil when they led 3-0 at the break, only to suffer a worrying second-half collapse that once again raised questions over their defensive deficiencies.

The Chelsea head coach drew comparisons between himself and Jurgen Klopp's management styles, both can regularly be seen frantically gesturing to their players from the touchline throughout games.

"It is very hard to not show this passion".

Employing the same tactics might allow Mane and Salah to find some holes and I have no doubt the latter of that pair will be very motivated going into this game against his former side.
