A few weeks ago, the Blues looked down and out and nearly certain to miss out on Champions League football, but a combination of both Liverpool and Spurs dropping points and Chelsea winning their last four matches has changed the complexion of the top-four race. Clearly, we should not concede another goal like this. "With the rest, I am absolutely fine".
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.
Antonio Conte's side, fifth in the table, host relegation-threatened Huddersfield in midweek before travelling to Newcastle next Sunday. Yes, it is just one game where that did not happen but it has happened this week, and it was followed by another game against Chelsea where they did not link up as well as usual. In 13 league games where Klopp's men failed to hit the front, they managed to win just 2 games, losing five times and drawing six.
"It was a dive, or he was looking for the contact and that is not right, he can do much better", Klopp said. "Today he played a very good game, he worked very hard with and without the ball and I'm pleased with the performance of the whole team".
North Korea returns to Korean Standard Time
The North Korean defectors do not trust Kim's intentions and want to keep fighting for the rights of their former compatriots. The New York Times reported Thursday that Trump has asked the Pentagon to prepare options for drawing down American troops.
"To bring in players who are 200 per cent better than what we have will be hard but we had a problem when Coutinho left and Adam Lallana and then Emre Can became injured. I'm really happy and proud of them".
Salah has enjoyed a remarkable season, scoring 43 goals in all competitions and winning the PFA Players' Player of the Year award, but he failed to shine against his former club on Sunday as Olivier Giroud's goal secured the points for Antonio Conte's side.
"It's a completely normal situation for an offensive player", Klopp told Sky Sports. The situation is very intense for the boys. That's not a problem - he can deal with that and deals with that. "I don't know if this will be enough at the end of the season, but we have to try". We wanted another result, I think everybody saw that.
"We are getting three points every game".
