Chelsea boss Conte furious over Liverpool preparation: It's not right

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has again taken aim at their schedule after victory at Qarabag.

Conte, whose men clinched a place in the Champions League's last 16, was due to jet into London at 5am after seeing off Qarabag.

Speaking immediately after the win, Conte said: “For sure, we have to work during the flight to prepare the game against Liverpool .

“But I must be honest, with my staff, we started also before to prepare the game against Liverpool, not to arrive at the last moment.

“For sure, to have only one day to rest and prepare this big game is not simple, not easy. I think also it's not right.

"But now I think, after this win, we must be pleased that we reached our first target: to go through into the next round of the Champions League."
