Chelsea face Liverpool this Sunday at Stamford Bridge in what is a win or bust fixture for the Stamford Bridge club if they are to have any chance of pulling off an unlikely top four finish this season.

After progressing through a tough group at the expense of Atletico Madrid this season, Chelsea were knocked out by Barcelona at the last-16 stage.

"This could be a good opportunity", Conte stated at his pre-match press conference as he continued, "but in the last three games, if we want to keep the hope alive we have to win, and as we know very well Liverpool are a good team".

The Blues host the Merseyside outfit on Sunday in what could prove to be a crucial Premier League clash.

The Egyptian has 42 goals this season in 49 matches and now leads the Premier League top scorers chart with 31 - the joint most in a 38 game Premier League season. For this reason, I think that to win the Champions League you must be more lucky. One referee's decision can settle your future totally. Also because they have only two (league) games to go. In a little tournament, like the FA Cup or EFL Cup or Champions League or Europa League, sometimes one decision can move your future.

Antonio Conte's sides chances of qualifying for the Champions League next season had looked dead and buried just a few weeks ago.

Mets lose deGrom, fall to sizzling Braves
It felt like one of those games, on the road, that the Atlanta Braves would blow late, and then lose in extra innings. Deep down, they know, like all their teams, the Braves will probably end up breaking their hearts at some point.

Speaking of his counterpart, Conte said: "For sure, we are talking about a coach who is showing in every moment great passion for football". You can see that he's present during the game.

Liverpool FC are in third spot and have a six-point cushion but Jurgen Klopp's side have played one game more than Chelsea FC. You can see that he's always present, in a positive or negative situation, so I have great respect for him. "I don't think the game in the Champions League will influence them", the Blues coach added. Every coach tries to pick the best situation for his team'.
