Chelsea close on top four with win over Liverpool

Chelsea close on top four with win over Liverpool

The win moved Chelsea, with 69 points, to within three points of third-placed Liverpool and two behind Tottenham Hotspur.

If Chelsea beat or draw with Huddersfield in midweek they will be within striking distance of Liverpool going into next Sunday's games.

With a six-point cushion on their rivals, a win would mean that Liverpool will guarantee their place in next season's Champions League with a top four finish, while Chelsea must ensure to win if they want to have a chance of entering into the Champions League spots.

Addressing the press ahead of Salah's return to Stamford Bridge on Sunday, Conte claimed "no one asked me about him". The Egyptian is now level with Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez on 31.

"We're talking about a player with specific characteristics, good technical [quality] but also very fast". We can not play players who are not available.

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp handed fullback Nathaniel Clyne a rare start, with Trent Alexander-Arnold moving into midfield, while there was no Alvaro Morata for Chelsea.

On Liverpool reaching the UEFA Champions League final, Conte said, "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 in this competition".

Giroud will be hoping to help Chelsea FC end the season on a high by beating Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley at the end of the month. Did I think that would happen?

But Jurgen Klopp's side have never been serious contenders this season to win the Premier League which Conte led Chelsea to a year ago. In contrast, Chelsea's winning the league in 206/17 was more to do with perseverance as you can not manage to slack in a 38 game season.

Chelsea ace Willian sees their clash with Liverpool as a must-win today.

Girous won the match for the Blues and Conte was quick to praise the Frenchman, he said: "He brought a personality, he's an global player with a lot of experience and we needed this kind of player".
