Jurgen Klopp: 'Liverpool up for top-four fight'

"One month ago, it was impossible to imagine we could fight for a place in the Champions League", Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said.

Spurs' surprise loss at relegation-threatened West Bromwich Albion on Saturday opened the door for Chelsea to close the gap on the top four and they capitalized on that lifeline with an assured performance over the Champions League finalists. We must be ready to get three points because it won't be easy. With a game in hand, Chelsea still have nine points to play for in the Premier League and a win on Sunday would be huge for their aspirations of being together with Europe's royalty.

Jurgen Klopp's team should still be able to guarantee a Champions League berth if they beat Brighton at Anfield on Sunday.

Chelsea have fallen short of expectations all season but they may still be able to sneak into the Champions League if they win their remaining two matches and either Tottenham lose one of theirs or Liverpool slip up at home to Brighton. "In the league, over 38 games, usually the team who deserves to win it wins it". 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.

The Brazilian centre-back has endured a hard season due to inconsistent form and injuries and Giroud recognises he has had a turbulent time. I was not sure. For sure, we're talking about a really good player. "They are a very good team so it's right to give them compliments".

Klopp also condemned Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah for a dive that earned him a booking.

They were 12 points ahead of Chelsea and seemingly out of sight.

Victor Moses teased Andrew Robertson as he worked space to swing over a cross and Giroud, stealing in front of the slow to react Dejan Lovren, glanced a fine header into the far corner of the net.

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Chelsea qualified for the final of the 2017/18 English FA Cup after beating fellow Premier League campaigners Southampton 2-0 on Sunday, April 22.
