Liverpool's Egyptian winger Salah has something to prove against Chelsea

Alvaro Morata and Eden Hazard

Jurgen Klopp believes Chelsea should be content with their start to the season, even though the Premier League champions trail leaders Manchester City by nine points.

Hazard, who became close with Salah during the Liverpool winger's short spell at Chelsea earlier in his career, described his former team-mate as a "top, top, top player" ahead of the game, and said he will be asking to swap shirts with the Egyptian afterwards.

"Disappointing time? I really can't get it". I saw the ability Salah had because I trained with him a lot.

Chelsea eased to a 4-0 Champions League win over Qarabag on Wednesday as they secured their sixth win in their last seven matches.

"He was very young in a very strong team and didn't come through".

Further questions have been raised about Liverpool's defending after they lost a three-goal lead to draw 3-3 away at Sevilla on Tuesday, but Conte was wary of reading too much into the result.

"My daughter said to me you look older".

Salah couldn't quite make the grade at Chelsea after joining them in 2013, failing to break into the first team on a regular basis before moving to Fiorentina and then AS Roma in Serie A.

He has looked to be worth the outlay, and Liverpool have been rewarded for their patience after Chelsea pipped them to Salah's signature from FC Basel back in 2014.

"He improved a lot, for sure, especially physical-wise".

"If he would've played already better at Chelsea, we would not have him probably in this moment, so I'm happy about the situation".

"Victor Moses's condition is good, he needs time to find his best form, but he is in the squad for tomorrow and I put him on the bench", Conte told journalists.

"We had a great first half and then in the second half we let everything unravel and so we were all feeling very frustrated. 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".
