The Blues are in Azerbaijan preparing for Wednesday night’s Champions League tie against Qarabag, with a win securing their a place in the last of 16.
Conte is furious at being forced to fly 2,500 miles home from Baku, and arrive in London on Thursday at 5 a.m, before facing Liverpool on Saturday afternoon.
“This is a really good target for us to reach the next round before the game against Atletico,” said Conte.
“But at the same time we know we are going to play another tough, big game against Liverpool and I am a bit surprised because in this season it is the second time this situation has happened.
“Now again Liverpool is playing tonight and we are have to play tomorrow against Qarabag, a long travel, and it will be very difficult for us to recover and to rest.
“Whoever prepares the fixtures for the league must pay great attention, otherwise it very difficult when I am asked if my team is ready to catch Manchester City if they put us in this type of situation.
“I don’t like to find excuses but this is the reality and sometimes it is good to give respect for our job. To prepare the game in only one day is very difficult.”
