Antonio Conte’s Chelsea takes on Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday needing a win to keep alive any hope of qualifying for Champions League Football.
Liverpool head to Chelsea on a high after reaching the Champions League final following their dramatic two-legged triumph over Italians Roma.
The former Juventus Manager, who won the title last season, said: “You have 38 games to show you deserve to win the league. To show you are the best during the season.
“In the Champions League, when you reach the last 16 or quarter-finals or semi-finals, one situation – positive or negative – can change your future.
“For this reason, I think that to win the Champions League you must be luckier. You must be good to deserve it, but at the same time, you must be lucky.
“One referee’s decision can settle your future totally. In the league, over 38 games, usually the team who deserves to win it wins it.
“Luck is always important in every competition, but when you have the possibility to play 38 games you can show you are the best.
