Chelsea boss, Antonio Conte has admitted that he expects a tough encounter between his side and Liverpool in Friday's English Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea who are currently second in the league table, hope to bounce back from their disappointing 2-2 draw away to Swansea.

Speaking ahead of Friday's game, Conte, in his press conference on Thursday,  urged his players to expect a high level performance from The Reds.

"I expect a strong match against Liverpool. Very tough. Liverpool play with high intensity. 

"My team must pay great attention to Liverpool," he said.

Conte revealed that David Luiz will play against Liverpool since returning to the Bridge following John Terry's injury.

"John Terry should be available 10 days after his injury was diagnosed. David Luiz will play tomorrow

"David Luiz is a good player and he expects him to play well."

The former Juventus boss hailed Jurgen Klopp as one of the best managers in world football. 

"Jurgen Klopp is one of the best managers in the world and is showing that capacity at Liverpool.

"I know Klopp a little bit and only played one of his teams in the pre-season this summer."

And on the availability of Cesc Fabregas and new signing, Marcos Alonso, Conte said: "Cesc Fabregas is training and is making team selection difficult. Fabregas is a great player. 

"I'm seeing good things from Marcos Alonso in training. He would be ready to play tomorrow if needed. Leicester cup game next Tuesday is a good opportunity for Alonso," Conte said.
