Giroud leads Chelsea to win over Liverpool

Liverpool

Chelsea's 1-0 win over Liverpool means that they maintain hopes of a top-four finish and qualification for next season's Champions League, but what will it require for them to overhaul either the Reds or Tottenham by next weekend?

Liverpool's last four matches were played in between Champions League fixtures. That doesn't sound like a holiday to me. We are getting in every game three points.

Mohamed Salah, Liverpool's 43-goal forward, was stifled by former Roma team-mate Antonio Rudiger. Arsene Wenger addresses the crowd at the Emirates after a 5-0 win for Arsenal over Burnley in his final home match as manager.

I don't think focus is an issue for the forwards, because they operate on instincts in that area of the pitch.

"Or he waited for the contact, I am not sure, so that is not what I want to see, that is not what he wants to do".

"But that's my life".

The Gunners' victory was a flawless send-forth for Frenchman Arsene Wenger who ended his almost 22 years reign at the North London club with his last home game yesterday. "I saw Brighton against United on Friday and it didn't look like an easy game, but this is football and if you want guarantees, you really need to do something else".

The France striker underlined his potent presence with the decisive goal to keep Chelsea in the Champions League race. Despite being a tournament that Liverpool have a real chance of winning, not focusing on the Premier League can cost Liverpool's place in the Champions League next season.

Spurs' surprise loss at relegation-threatened West Bromwich Albion on Saturday opened the door for Chelsea to close the gap on the top four. It would still be some shock if they scupper Spurs again.

The Liverpool manager focused not only on the dangers of collecting cards in key games but also the reluctance of referees to give decisions in favour of players who go to ground too easily.

Antonio Conte praised his players after a 1-0 victory over Liverpool boosted Chelsea's hopes of snatching a Champions League spot.

For Chelsea, though, the objective is clear and uncomplicated. Roma were under pressure from UEFA to balance their accounts: sanctioned in 2015 as part of the financial fair play, the club giallorosso had committed to present a maximum deficit of 30 million euros for the next two seasons and a strictly balanced budget in 2017-2018.
