Chelsea new interim boss speaks on Tuesday night clash against Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool.

Chelsea's new interim boss Bruno Saltor speaks on what will be his first game in charge of the Blues, Tuesday night's clash against Liverpool, and he hints at what to expect from his team. 

Saltor took over as interim manager following the sacking of Graham Potter after a poor run of results, and he will now lead the West Londoners out against Jurgen Klopp's men on Tuesday.

He said that it is an opportunity for the players to redeem themselves, suggesting that they take pride in wearing the Chelsea colours.  

He explained that they will prepare for the game meticulously and hinted that his team will try to dominate the game and not cower against an offensively solid opponent.

He pointed out that Chelsea were also dominant in the defeat to Aston Villa, attributing the loss to defensive mishaps, and suggested that his team will also play on the front foot when they host Liverpool tomorrow. 

The Reds are also having problems of their own, having recently suffered a 4-1 loss to their rivals Manchester City, but Saltor says his team will not underestimate them as Liverpool are still a team filled with quality players.  

A season of sackings in the Premier League

Graham Potter's sacking is one of 13 in the Premier League so far this season, and this could become the fate of Jurgen Klopp as well, whose Liverpool have fallen from their set heights this season.

As we reported in detail here, Chelsea's sacking of Graham Potter has set a new record in the Premier League

Chelsea manager Graham Potter has been relieved of his duties as Blues boss after the club lost faith in the 47-year-old following a string of poor results culminating in the 2-0 loss to Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge. 

A worrying trend of over-expectation and under-delivery from managers in the Premier League appears to have plagued the league in recent years with the top four seasons featuring the most managerial departures all coming in seasons between 2013/14 and now.
