Conte's Chelsea find resilience to boost top four hopes

GETTYGary Cahill has not been a first team regular under Antonio Conte at Chelsea

Olivier Giroud boosted Chelsea's bid to snatch a place in the Premier League's top four as the France striker sealed a 1-0 win over Liverpool that brought the Champions League finalists back down to earth on Sunday.

Cahill, who joined Chelsea for £7m from Bolton Wanderers in 2012, has developed massively during his time at Stamford Bridge, going on to be in the England squad along with winning numerous titles including the Champions League, just five months into his tenure at the Blues.

"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. "Usually when you have to play a must-win game, it is not easy".

A win against Huddersfield on Wednesday can get Chelsea level on points with Liverpool, but their inferior goal difference means they would nearly certainly need a favour from Brighton to get in ahead of the Merseyside club.

Cleveland fielders have committed three errors over their last five games, compared to zero errors for NY over its last five. They are batting.251 (109-for-435) overall, .314 (33-for-105) with runners in scoring position while posting a 1.69 ERA.

Liverpool travel to Stamford Bridge aiming to claim the victory that will guarantee them a place in the Champions League next season and Klopp's side are nearly at full strength. Chelsea have to win their games as well.

Antonio Conte is happy that Chelsea are still "fighting until the end" after a hard season for last season's champions. I was not sure. The good thing is that we have another game but we don't think about that at the moment.

"We want something big at the season, so when you win games like this it's good for the whole team".

The tie will see Mohamed Salah returning to his old home, while Jurgen Klopp will try to get a third consecutive win at Stamford Bridge.

Unemployment rate falls in April
Despite the numbers , last month's growth paled in comparison with the average monthly gain of 191,000 jobs over the past year. Economists interpreted symmetric to mean policymakers would not be too concerned with inflation overshooting the target .

The Blues started the match impressively knowing that a win will help them keep serious pressure on Tottenham who now occupy fourth position on the League standings.

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. Liverpool did plenty of pressing but could not find an equalizer.

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Chelsea qualified for the final of the 2017/18 English FA Cup after beating fellow Premier League campaigners Southampton 2-0 on Sunday, April 22.
