Champions League requires more luck than Premier League - Antonio Conte

Gary Cahill Gary Cahill interview: I can feel some Chelsea fans think 'move him on' but I'm still hungry

"One month ago, it was impossible to imagine we could fight for a place in the Champions League", Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said.

Coming into Sunday's pivotal Premier League fixture at Stamford Bridge - a match they needed to win to narrow the gap on the top four - only Arsenal had taken fewer points than Chelsea from matches against the "Big Six" this season.

Mo Salah has fired Liverpool's bid at home and overseas with a stunning 43 goal debut season at Anfield and will return to Stamford Bridge for the first time as the recently crowned double player-of-the-season.

"It's completely normal for attacking players to be like this", Klopp told BBC Sport after a result that leaves his side just three points clear of the fifth-place Blues.

Eden Hazard was becoming more influential for Chelsea and almost added a second for the hosts after dancing past three Liverpool defenders, his near-post effort just rebuffed by Karius and with 10 minutes to go Marcus Alonso's spectacular left-foot volley whistled just past the post.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is getting a bit annoyed with the same questions from reporters but his answers remain the same.

.

The match finished goalless, which effectively ended Chelsea's title hopes, and Mourinho reportedly tore into Salah after the game.

"I think that, in the league, you have 38 games to show you deserve to win the league. I'm not sure", Klopp said.

The report also claims that Salah's teammates at Chelsea felt that the Egyptian was being pushed out of the club, despite impressing in training. "They are a very good team so it's right to give them compliments".

Mané was in a personal duel with Courtois, who kept out another powerful blast from the Senegal winger, then scrambled to his feet to deny him again from the rebound.

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.

Olivier Giroud's header hauled Chelsea back into serious contention for a Champions League spot.
