Roy Keane impressed by Liverpool’s Champions League run

Chelsea are the only threat to their Champions League place and should the Reds lose to them this weekend, Antonio Conte's side will have the opportunity to draw level on points when they face Huddersfield midweek.

"No, I don't want to take this responsibility".

"I think they'll be sharp and should play with urgency with what's now at stake and they can also catch Liverpool in recovery mode".

At one point the players all posed for photos as they looked to commemorate what has been an incredible week for them.

"We have really fought hard to be in the position we are and now we have to finish the job. we need to be ready for Chelsea and it could be the same intensity like it was in Rome because it's a similar situation".

"We are talking about a player with specific characteristics: good technique, and also very fast". I knew him when he played in Italy but it would be very hard to predict this type of season.

ETA: Basque Separatist Group Disbands After Decades Of Conflict
A final public declaration from ETA, which Spain regards as a terrorist group, is expected later on Thursday. In 1973 the group assassinated Spanish Prime Minister Luis Carrero Blanco in a car-bomb attack.

Conte has no new injury worries ahead of the game, though David Luiz [knee] and Ethan Ampadu [ankle] remain long-term absentees.

On Friday the players seemed a million miles away from those kind of concerns though as they trained in the sun with smiles on their faces.

Chelsea should be the fresher side with Liverpool having negotiated a tense Champions League semifinal against Roma, but their head coach is unsure if it will be an advantage.

"Luck is always important in every competition, but when you have the possibility to play 38 games you can show you are the best".

"For this reason, I think that to win the Champions League you must be more lucky".

"We have another final in FA Cup and for sure we want to give satisfaction to our fans".
