Liverpool vs Chelsea: Paul Merson delivers prediction for Premier League clash

"We have to work during the flight, to prepare the game against Liverpool", said Conte, who repeated his complaints over the Premier League fixture schedule.

They flew back immediately after and were expected to land at Gatwick at around 4am on Thursday, before travelling to Merseyside on Friday for their clash with the Reds on Saturday evening.

Chelsea recorded emphatic win against Qarabag on Wednesday.

Two goals from Willian, in addition to penalties from Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas ensured Chelsea's 2,500-mile trip to Baku, Azerbaijan, was not wasted, as the Blues confirmed their place in the knockout stages.

"This group is showing great character", he said, basking in the contrast with the fallout from his previous European away game, a 3-0 thrashing at Roma. I think it's definitely a penalty.

"Yes, we'll see. We need to arrive in this period and after decide, but today you can not take any decision because it's so early to start to talk in which way you prioritise in which you go further than another". I knew very well this type of game would not be easy.

"Despite this, our answer was nearly always positive". Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde rested Argentina star Lionel Messi in Turin, later introducing him as a second-half substitute as a 0-0 draw against Juventus sent the five-time European champion through as victor of Group D. "Tonight I did many rotations and to see every single player answer very well is great for me".

"We are a really good squad".

"Someone has to help us to underline this odd situation".

Hazard scored Chelsea's first-half opener from the penalty spot after his pass to Willian provoked a foul on the Brazilian from Rashad Sadygov, who was sent off as a result. However, they must beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in their final game and hope Roma drop points at home to Qarabag to avoid parachuting into the Europa League.

Finally, the controversial figure for the entirety of the game, Willian put the final nail in Qarabag's coffin with a clinical right-corner finish from outside the box.

He told BT Sport: "For me it was a penalty - I don't think for you guys it is, but for me it was a penalty".
