The clash between the two in-form stars is just one of the mouth-watering prospects for today’s tea-time clash and Conte is happy to talk his man up.
The Italian said: “Salah’s start was important, he is scoring a lot of goals.
“But Alvaro is the same. To my team and for me it was very important for him to have an impressive start in this league.
“In our system, the striker is such a vital figure and for this reason is always involved in our chances.
“Sometimes he scores or makes an assist for his team-mates.
“To play in this league for a striker is not simple because it is very tough compared with Italy and Spain.
“He has shown commitment and that he is a clever person to adapt himself to this league.”
