Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari feels this weekend's clash with Liverpool will be a gruelling battle.

Scolari admits he will settle for the points over the performance when joint Barclays Premier League leaders Liverpool come calling.

The Brazilian admitted: "We will try to play beautiful football against Liverpool but more important for us at the moment is to score one or two goals needed to win the match.

"They are a strong team and they don't fight for 90 minutes but 100 minutes. They have won four games with late goals this season."
