Liverpool And Chelsea Name Strong Starting Elevens For Top Four Showdown

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

Firmino will hope to continue to provide Salah in Liverpool's next game against Chelsea this Sunday, before the build up for the Reds' biggest game in several years against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final on May 26th.

The Blues kept their push for a top-four finish well and truly alive by seeing off the Reds 1-0 at Stamford Bridge today. 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.

MF Tiemoue Bakayoko, 8 - At the start of the season, Chelsea supporters concocted a song for Bakayoko which praised the fact that in tandem with Kante he never gave the ball away.

Even so, Conte remains focused on getting Chelsea back into the top four after a run of three successive league wins. Failure to qualify for the Champions League for Liverpool and Spurs, while still unlikely, would be disastrous for either club in so many ways. Klopp also stated that, despite having a more important fixture to play, the focus on the Premier League will not reduce with so much still left to play for.

Arsenal are the only side left in English football yet to take a point away from home in 2018. "We play our last game at home and Chelsea have to go to Newcastle - that's not a holiday trip, it doesn't sound like a holiday trip to me!" he told reporters at his post-match press conference.

Who will win the champions league?

As reported by the Express, Klopp wants to start the integration process already with Keita by inviting him to attend the European final in Kiev to watch his future teammates in action. They have to win and they will try to do so. "The situation is very intense for the boys and I am really happy and proud of them how they deal with it". We need to be ready for the game.
