Chelsea defender makes a bold admission before Blues clash vs Liverpool

Posted April 14, 2019

Liverpool host Chelsea on Sunday, live on Sky Sports, nearly exactly five years after their famous Anfield defeat, and they are again hunting their first Premier League title. Two bookings in five minutes at Wolves on April 2 led to a red card that means he will miss Saturday's game vs. When asked if tomorrow's game was a chance to restore the club's pride, Sarri said: "Yes, I think so".

The Italian said: "We need to think the second leg will be hard because these opponents are hard away".

He said he did not know if the youngster would return for Sunday's Premier League game at Liverpool and insisted the time was right to rest him following his involvement in recent matches.

"The video circulating online, showing vile discriminatory chants being aimed at one of our players, is risky and disturbing", the club said. We want to write our own history.

If you judge how big games are by how important they are to the teams involved, then Cardiff's next two fixtures eclipse any Champions League game in the offing.

A video of Chelsea fans racially abusing footballer Mohamed Salah before their clash on Sunday has been condemned by his club as "unadulterated bigotry". Only the colours and the names are the same pretty much. "I am completely positive about the game".

Klopp's side are still on top of the table and just a point ahead of closest rivals Manchester City but have played a game more.

"We are trying to keep this dream alive and at the moment it's all good".

According to the former Arsenal striker, those involved in the act should not be regarded as Chelsea fans because they do not represent the intention and values of the club. But we try to use the fan power and give them a boost by things we do on the pitch.

It helps that Klopp has more options available to him now, and options will help conserve energy. "It's a massive change from surprise - we're up there, getting used to it and getting more confident".

Three fans were prevented from entering Slavia Prague's Eden Arena before the Europa League quarter-final by Chelsea security, after footage emerged on social media of the group singing a vile song about Salah.
