Antonio Conte will visit Qarabag in Azerbaijan before facing Liverpool in a crucial Premier League game at Anfield. The Italian manager, speaking to the club’s official website, has backed Chelsea players, who have “always showed a great desire and will to fight in every game”. 

“I must be honest, these players always show great desire and will to fight in every game, – Conte explained – Against Roma, together we didn’t show this – me first. I always put myself before the players and I always take the responsibility”.

“In Rome we didn’t deserve to finish the first half 2-0 down, but the second half was negative because we didn’t show the desire to come back to try to draw it or win”.

“But I think this season, we faced a lot of problems from the start and now we are trying to solve these problems, to recall players, to find the right form for players like, for example, Eden and it is the same for Morata who is playing his first season in England”.

Victor Moses, as Conte confirmed a few days ago, could be fully fit for the upcoming clash against Liverpool after recovering from an hamstring injury.

“Then Kante is recovering good form and we know very well the importance of these players for us. – he added – We had a lot of problems and also we are trying to change something in the tactical aspect and to find different solutions, because when you are conceding many goals, it means you have to find a new balance”.
