The Brazilian is still keeping Manchester City's Ederson out of the national team XI and has been linked with the likes of Liverpool and Real Madrid and helped the Serie A side get to the Champions League semi-final. You want the best players in your team, and you have to treat him in a certain way if you want to keep him. "After the final, we will talk because, for sure, there will be changes".
"They still need a point to be sure, so I expect the same Liverpool we've seen all season - the brilliance of what they have and the attacking threat they have".

Chris Hughton admits the excitement of Brighton's first league game at Anfield in 36 years is tempered by the threat of suffering another thrashing.

"We believe in ourselves, we have real rich experience when it comes to these games, and they know how to make things hard for us".
Conte defended his decision to rest Hazard in such an important game, but Melchiot offered another warning to the Chelsea, suggesting the Belgium captain could leave if he is not playing every game with Real Madrid known admirers. "After that there'll be consequences - if we are going to break [records] or not".
