Salah makes 50th Liverpool appearance against Chelsea, Henderson rested

Liverpool's clash with Brighton & Hove Albion at Anfield next weekend is now a "final" in their bid for a top-four finish after a 1-0 defeat at rivals Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday, manager Juergen Klopp said. The good thing is that we have another game but we don't think about that at the moment.

Olivier Giroud's victor, headed home before half time, puts Chelsea two points behind Tottenham and three off Liverpool.

Liverpool head to the capital in buoyant mood after booking their place in the Champions League final with a thrilling 7-6 aggregate victory over AS Roma on Wednesday night. I think in spite of the hard season we are still alive and are fighting until the end.

"He missed a couple but in the end he scored and we won the game so it's okay". 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.

Salah was given a chance to impress in Chelsea's home clash with Norwich City towards the end of the season but Mourinho chose to haul his January signing off at the break after a subdued first half.

"We are winning and our opponents are dropping points".

On Liverpool reaching the UEFA Champions League final, Conte said, "In the Champions League, when you reach the last 16 or quarter-finals or semi-finals, one situation - positive or negative - can change your future in this competition". We need to be ready for the game.

"Brighton is a very important game for us, but we've had a few of them in the past and they haven't been too bad".

But despite their pressure, Liverpool were caught with a sucker punch in the 32nd minute as Giroud justified Conte's decision to select him at the expense of the out of form Alvaro Morata.

The Blues started the match impressively knowing that a win will help them keep serious pressure on Tottenham who now occupy fourth position on the League standings.

Chelsea's 23 interceptions on Sunday were the most they have made in the current Premier League campaign and only twice have they made more clearances in a top-flight contest this term.
