Antonio Conte still has hope for Champions League football next season

Olivier Giroud’s header sinks Liverpool and keeps Chelsea’s top-four hopes alive

Meanwhile, Trent Alexander-Arnold had an afternoon to forget as the teenager struggled to cope with the physicality of Chelsea's midfield and a number of his passes went astray.

Jordan Henderson's introduction from the bench in the 59th minute added a little extra steel, but still Chelsea looked more risky - Alonso almost making it 2-0 with an exquisite volley from the left side of the area that went agonisingly wide of the top-right corner.

Brighton's Premier League status has been secured thanks to their 1-0 win over Manchester United on Friday.

His aerial prowess came to the fore in the first half at Stamford Bridge when he muscled in front of Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren and headed in his fifth Chelsea goal since his January move.

At the end, the Reds also made a good deal.

The company also has major investments in such companies as American Express, IBM and Wells Fargo & Co. Many shareholders say they trust that Buffett has a solid succession plan in place.

Chelsea still need one more defeat for Spurs or Liverpool to have matters back in their own hands, but if they do return to the Champions League, Giroud's goal worth its weight in gold. "The next game will definitely be a tough game but I'm confident we can manage to win it".

Liverpool still has a crucial leg up.

Will goal difference be a factor?

Morata will be out to impress in what remains a key fixture for the Blues, with their Champions League hopes still in the balance. Doubt that Liverpool is in the clear.

Chelsea's victory has condensed the battle for prime 4 locations, with Antonio Conte's aspect now simply two factors behind Tottenham and three factors behind Liverpool.

Judge Wants to See Unredacted Memos Directing Mueller Probe
Trump called Manafort "a nice guy" but also said he was part of his campaign for "a very short period of time". The judge's questions suggested he was impatient with Breeden and the three prosecutors sitting at the table.

None of this is relevant, of course, unless Chelsea win both of their remaining games. Benitez's team have beaten Man Utd and Arsenal at St. James Park recently, as well as restricting Man City to a 1-0 win.

They have not been impressive overall. Liverpool face Brighton at Anfield on Sunday while Chelsea host Huddersfield then visit Newcastle, and Klopp insists that his team has the advantage.

Liverpool were laboured. They were trying to get on the ball and make things happen but from one-twos around the box to their movement, it was not quite there.

But Chelsea has questioned foregone conclusions.

The landscape will look even healthier for Chelsea if Spurs slip up against Newcastle at Wembley in midweek ahead of their season finale at home to Leicester next Sunday.
