Chelsea is suffering from a major setback ahead of their Liverpool clash during the weekend, on Saturday, which Antonio Conte, Chelsea’s manager, believes it’s unfair.
After Chelsea’s great 4-0 win against Qarabag FK in Azberjian, Baku, the Blues are suffering a major issue which is fitness issue and the lack of time to prepare for the Premier League match against Liverpool on Saturday.
Chelsea’s players returned to London on Thursday 4 AM, after a five hours journey from Azberjian to the UK. Antonio Conte express that he’s not happy with this situation, where he and his team had to start preparing for Liverpool’s match during the flight due to the lack of time to rest and prepare.
Antonio Conte said in a conference:” We have only one day to rest and another day to prepare the big game against Liverpool on Saturday. It’s not easy, I think it’s not right.”
Conte continued:“ I don’t want to make excuses, but in reality, this isn’t right at all. When people hear the complaints from the manager, someone has to help us.”
Chelsea will play on Saturday against Liverpool, in one of the biggest matches this season, in order to step forward toward the Premier League title, or at least a top-four place for both teams.
Chelsea will be suffering a huge fitness issue ahead of the match due to the lack of time between Qarabag FK and Liverpool’s match, where Chelsea have less than 48 hours to prepare and rest before the match only. This short time may lead to fatigue and injuries to the players.
