Chelsea 1-0 Liverpool: Olivier Giroud keeps Blues' top-four hopes alive

Chelsea Vs Liverpool: Premier League 2017/18 live stream, TV listings

Things were not going to plan for England's Player of the Year Mohamed Salah on his return to his old club, with the Premier League top scorer booked for diving in the 39th minute.

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. Liverpool have only one game left while Chelsea and Spurs each have two.

Chelsea central defender Gary Cahill has hit out at his critics insisting his achievements at Stamford Bridge mean he has to be viewed as a success.

Salah was hauled off at half-time in Chelsea's 0-0 draw with Norwich City. The moment is important, the moment you arrive to play each game.

The Reds come into today's game off the back of a midweek epic in Rome.

The lander will also deploy a super sensitive seismometer that can monitor tiny tremors of the planet's surface or " marsquakes ". One InSight instrument will dig 5 meters (16 feet) into the subsurface to measure heat from the interior.

"But Liverpool deserve to play in this final".

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. Liverpool's Egyptian forward will be particularly desperate for three points this time out, having been sold by Chelsea earlier in his career without ever being given much of a chance in the first team. It was Giroud's third league goal in 11 appearances for Chelsea since he joined the club from Arsenal in January and his fifth goal in his last six EPL starts against Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp's side are still on a high following a 4-2 defeat at Roma on Wednesday that clinched a 7-6 aggregate success in the Champions League semi-finals. We must be ready to get three points because it won't be easy. I don't want to take this responsibility.

For Liverpool, Adam Lallana is back in training but unlikely to be available from the start. We should see Bakayoko starting, together with Olivier Giroud, in a mission to exploit Liverpool's defensive fragilities.
