Chelsea Inches Close To Champions League Slot

"We showed a great will to fight to show that we were still alive".

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud thanked former boss Arsene Wenger, telling SFR Sport he believes his fellow Frenchman will stay in the game after leaving Arsenal this summer.

England worldwide goalkeeper Jack Butland has attracted interest from Liverpool in the past, whilst former Bayern Munich and Inter Milan midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri won't be short of offers once he returns from the World Cup with Switzerland.

The Reds reached their first Champions League final in 11 years last week after beating Roma 7-6 on aggregate in a thrilling semi-final. We had a couple of chances and didn't score; they had this one header and that's it, one goal.

Klopp acknowledged his star forward had gone to ground easily after tangling with Chelsea centre-back Gary Cahill in the 39th minute: "Yes, I think it was a dive, was it?" Tottenham even have two video games to play.

If you do that, you inevitably play badly which sends you down a whole different road.

After 11 objectives in seven video games throughout a shocking stretch of kind, Salah has now gone three matches with out a objective over the previous week.

Liverpool are in a curious spot at the moment. Before the game they are very friendly, all 'Hello, Mo, how are you?' and hugs here and there.

Chelsea have won five matches in a row, while Liverpool have only won once in their last five, which includes draws against Stoke and West Bromwich Albion, the Premier League's bottom two clubs.

The Blues play Huddersfield at home on Wednesday and at Newcastle on next Sunday's final day; Spurs meet Newcastle and Leicester, respectively, on the same days, at their temporary Wembley home.

"I hate the result".

Speaking at a news conference before Liverpool's defeat at Chelsea, Klopp revealed his intention to strengthen his thinning squad.

Salah touched the ball just 34 times yesterday, above. Yes Salah has scored the majority, but they have been sharing the goals out, which is one of the reason things have worked so well. And they've crept up on the top four. Coming to the game, none of Liverpool's midfielders were able to break the lines and unleash the front three. It is hard to prepare for the match when I have only one striker. With all the opposite conditions, in that scenario he could not get any foul any extra.

"I'm not shocked or surprised that happened today", Klopp said.

Liverpool deserve to win the Champions League this year according to former Manchester United player Dion Dublin. At the end, we were a bit disappointed to be leaving one another, but it was just the way life wants it to be. "That's not what I want to see, that's not what he wants to do. We have to try and get three points to apply pressure". Then they can kick on for Kiev from there.
