Chelsea 1-0 Liverpool: 3 things that went right for the Blues

With both teams playing desperately for a win, the match was always bound to be an exciting one with all eyes on Liverpool's blue-eyed boy, Mohamed Salah, who only needed one goal to break the Premier League record for the most goals scored in a single season - one that is now jointly held by himself, Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez.

Olivier Giroud's first-half header at Stamford Bridge saw Chelsea close the gap on fourth-placed London rivals Tottenham Hotspur to two points and on Liverpool in third to three points, with a game in hand over the Merseysiders.

Given their exploits in reaching the Champions League final in Wednesday's semi-final second leg with Roma, Liverpool's failure to produce an intense start was unsurprising. I think in spite of the hard season we are still alive and are fighting until the end. "We all work together and when we play this kind of game, it is a good feeling after the game". It's normal to be a bit nervous. Tottenham also have two games to play.

"You can never remove all injury risk and the boys still did brilliantly, but of course we will try to strengthen the squad because that's how it is". In 13 league games where Klopp's men failed to hit the front, they managed to win just 2 games, losing five times and drawing six.

"Probably one month ago it was impossible to imagine we would arrive at the end of the season fighting for the Champions League", Conte added.

"We are in a period of the season where - and it is the same for every team - we don't have the freshness that we had in September, October and November". So how plausible is that and where are the points most likely to be dropped?

"We're putting pressure on the teams that stay ahead of us".

"The injury is not serious", Conte said.

He pitched a one-hit shutout in that start and went 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA and a career-high 191 strikeouts that season. Harvey declined, leaving Alderson only one option to offload the pitcher he owes $5.6 million this season.

In the Premier League, Liverpool have not lost a single game in which they have taken the lead. It is not serious and I hope he recovers.

"There is one moment I am really disappointed, not happy, angry with and it was the goal".

"Probably I will make rotations on Wednesday as today we expended a lot of energy against Liverpool".
