Conte: In spite of a hard season we are still alive

Chelsea's victory has condensed the battle for top four places, with Antonio Conte's side now just two points behind Tottenham and three points behind Liverpool.

Arsenal Legend, Thierry Henry has reacted to striker, Olivier Giroud's goal after Chelsea's clash with Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday.

"We are winning and our opponents are dropping points. We have to try and get three points to apply pressure".

Liverpool has work to do to secure its place in Europe's elite competition as an intense contest in stifling heat proved too much at the end of a week which saw Juergen Klopp's men advance to the Champions League final against Real Madrid.

Jurgen Klopp expressed his disappointment with top scorer Mohamed Salah on Sunday after he was booked for diving during Liverpool's 1-0 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

His third assist of the season put the Blues back in contention for a top-four finish, thus, leaving them with hopes of a Champions League spot next season. "It is very hard to prepare another player in your mind if you have two strikers and one is injured". Tottenham also have two games to play.

Wenger then got to lift a Premier League trophy for one final time: a miniature gold version that celebrates the unbeaten Invincibles season 14 years ago.

"Yes I think it was a dive, wasn't it?" Usually when you have to play a must-win game, it is not easy. Before the game they are very friendly and 'Hello Mo, how are you?' and hug.

"He has to be much better, he can do much better and he will score again, there is no doubt about that", said Klopp. That doesn't sound like a holiday to me. Liverpool did plenty of pressing but could not find an equaliser.

In the post-match conference, Klopp pointed out that Salah's dive could lead referees to be wary of giving decision in favor of the Liverpool's winger in the future.

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.
