Klopp put Salah's struggles at Chelsea down to inexperience, saying he was not surprised the Egypt global failed to force his way into a side full of seasoned players who won the title the season after he was first loaned out. "But we've worked very well to try to have a good game against Liverpool". "We've only had one day to prepare for a big game and I think this is not right, I must be honest", he told reporters.
"Another player similar is Kevin De Bruyne and he is not doing too bad now".
"I don't think he has to prove something, I don't think he sees it like that". Then the captain tried again and the second time was positive. Obviously it was hard in these times to come in the [Chelsea] team, they had already a fantastic offensive team. On that occasion, the City wingers pushed Chelsea's full backs much deeper than they're used to playing so as to force them into flat back five.
Chelsea wing-back Victor Moses is available following a six-week absence with a hamstring injury. Last time Morata played three games in a row, and after 20 minutes against Man City he was injured.
The winger chose to leave Chelsea for Roma after finding his chances few and far between, and then went on to become one of the best players in Serie A before his move to Liverpool - where he has stepped things up another level and has been spoken of as the Reds' signing of the season.More news: Roy Moore accuser says she was not paid to tell her story

"I know him very well; he played in Italy for many years", said Conte.
Salah could have been turning out for Chelsea rather than Liverpool had he not been allowed to leave by former manager Jose Mourinho, but Conte is keen to avoid any criticism of that decision of of his club's previous regime. He improved a lot, especially physically, he was always a very good player.
'We must pay great attention but not only to Salah, but to [Sadio] Mane, [Roberto] Firmino, [Philippe] Coutinho, [Daniel] Sturridge.
"He was very young in a very strong team and didn't come through".
