Antonio Conte: 'Chelsea have good opportunity to catch Liverpool'

Maurizio Sarri's agent, Alessandro Pellegrini, has allegedly already met with a few Chelsea "emissaries" to clarify what it would take to get his client to Stamford Bridge. Firstly, despite signing Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid, the loss of Costa left the Blues woefully short of firepower - especially with Tammy Abraham sent to Swansea on loan and Conte not trusting Michy Batshuayi.

Conte wants Chelsea to win their remaining games - with Liverpool, Huddersfield and Newcastle - to ensure they are in position to capitalise on any slip up of those occupying the Champions League qualification places.

"This is a very hard one to predict".

"Liverpool may have one eye on the Champions League final and perhaps will be mentally and emotionally tired after beating Roma (on aggregate) in midweek so hopefully they won't be at their best". 'We are talking about a really good player.

"This could be a good opportunity for us, but as I have said a lot of times, if we want to keep our hopes alive we have to win".

"It won't be easy".

Whether that is Conte's last game in charge remains to be seen.

The Italian gave short shrift and a familiar answer to the questions which have regularly been thrown at him this season, about his future.

2016/17 was an odd season for striker Diego Costa, who fell out with Antonio Conte in January 2017 amid rumours of a potential move to the mega-rich Chinese Super League. You are continuing to ask me. I have a contract with Chelsea, I am doing my job, I am doing my work every day. "This is my answer".
