Albion clash at Anfield is looking like a must-win for Liverpool

Olivier Giroud scored the only goal at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea's 1-0 win over Liverpool saw them also capitalise on Tottenham's defeat at West Brom on Saturday to take the race for the top four into the final week of the season.

Chelsea have kept their top-four dreams alive after beating Champions League finalists Liverpool at Stamford Bridge.

The match finished goalless, which effectively ended Chelsea's title hopes, and Mourinho reportedly tore into Salah after the game. Antonio Conte has named a defensive line up as his side look to out battle a Liverpool side that have a Champions League final on the horizon.

Chelsea against Liverpool confirmed starting lineups.

Chelsea sit fifth in the Premier League with three games left to play.

Chelsea 2-1 Liverpool: The Blues are winless in their last six league meetings with Liverpool and there is no doubt the Reds having been playing the better football in recent months.




"Liverpool is a team who are very unsafe and if you leave a lot of space behind the defensive line their players are impressive the way they attack the space, but also playing through the lines and in their combinations".

"What I wanted this morning when I woke up, nice and easy, 3-0 win, going home, enjoying the sun and don't care for the Brighton game, and prepare already for the final".

He added, "Luck is always important in every competition, but when you have the possibility to play 38 games you can show you are the best".

"When you break that down, whether you like me or not, you can't say that's not massive success and I'm still hungry to have more". We have fought hard for our position in the league.

A squad many would have considered too good to go down at the start of the campaign could now be gutted by preying Premier League clubs over the summer. "The situation is very intense for the boys and I am really happy and proud of them how they deal with it".
