Brighton match is a final for Liverpool says Klopp

GETTYCahill helped Chelsea secure an FA Cup final spot

"But Liverpool deserve to play in this final".

That faith has been rewarded with five goals, with the most recent of those coming in a crunch clash with Champions League finalists Liverpool.

Chelsea will be looking to close in on the top four with a win when Liverpool arrive at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.

With a fight for top four as well as relegation to be decided, the final week of the season promises to be captivating.

If Chelsea beat or draw with Huddersfield in midweek they will be within striking distance of Liverpool going into next Sunday's games. For Klopp's peace of mind and to rest a tiring squad with a growing injury list, guaranteeing qualification on Sunday is the ideal scenario.

Jurgen Klopp's side started brightly and Roberto Firmino saw his third-minute effort saved by Thibaut Courtois after Trent Alexander-Arnold's ball over the top. "The league is equally important [as the Champions League]", Klopp said.

Arsene Wenger bids farewell to a stadium he helped to build in more ways than one when he leads Arsenal at the Emirates for the final time at home to Burnley on Sunday. It is not we can decide about leaving one out. The whole season is a constant challenge.

Girous won the match for the Blues and Conte was quick to praise the Frenchman, he said: "He brought a personality, he's an worldwide player with a lot of experience and we needed this kind of player. Of course it is a big advantage for Chelsea not playing in the week".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho made six changes for his side's defeat at Brighton, and didn't spare those that missed their chance to impress ahead of the FA Cup final in two weeks' time.

Olivier Giroud's victor, headed home before half time, puts Chelsea two points behind Tottenham and three off Liverpool. It was clear, the plan - cut back, cross, soft cross and Giroud is there.

Chelsea won the Premier League title in style in Conte's first campaign at the club last season.

Hopeful of taking advantage of Liverpool tiredness after their European exploits, Conte said: "This could be a good opportunity for us".

It didn't get the desired reaction if we're honest.
