Liverpool's Jürgen Klopp criticises Mohamed Salah dive against Chelsea

Liverpool's Jürgen Klopp criticises Mohamed Salah dive against Chelsea

Frenchman Giroud headed what proved to be the winning goal in the 32nd minute, meaning the striker has now scored 17 league goals with his head since the start of 2015-16, more than any other player in Europe's top five leagues.

"We are getting three points in every game".

"I'd like to finish with one simple word: I will miss you. We have to try and get three points to apply pressure".

"We must be pleased because the players played a really good game", Blues boss Conte said.

"The manager would have worked on this formation and it was very impressive".

"If you asked what I wanted this morning when I woke up: nice and easy, 3-0 win, going home enjoying the sun and don't care about Brighton and prepare already the final". Chelsea have a game in hand on Liverpool, and, if Conte's team beat Huddersfield on Wednesday, Liverpool will remain ahead of Chelsea courtesy only of their goal difference.

Liverpool were left frustrated by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon, with the hosts coming away with a 1-0 win.

"I saw great desire and a great will to fight and keep the hope alive to take a place in the Champions League".

"It's important to face this situation with a lot of pride and show we are still alive", Conte said.

I think it was a dive.

But somewhat against the run of play, Giroud climbed highest to nod home Victor Moses' cross and give Chelsea the lead. 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.

"He has to be much better, he can do much better and he will score again, there is no doubt about that", said Klopp.

Arsenal put its midweek exit from the Europa League - and any hope of Champions League football next season - behind it with a pair of goals from Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and strikes from Sead Kolasinac, Alexandre Lacazette and Alex Iwobi.

Sadio Mane's 25-yard drive forced a sprawling save from Courtois and from the resulting corner, the Chelsea keeper needed to be alert to stop Virgil van Dijk heading in from close range.
