Mohamed Salah Slated For This 'Embarrassing' Moment Against Former Club Chelsea

"We had the will to win, to keep the hope alive that we can get a place in the Champions League".

Salah is now the league top scorer and might break significant records if he maintains his level until the very end of the season.

But given Liverpool's superior goal difference, the Reds would nearly certainly ensure a top-four finish with victory at home to Brighton on the final day.

Don't get me wrong, I totally understand how hard it must have been for the Reds players to get their mind-set right on Sunday, after the euphoria of reaching the Champions League final in midweek.

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

Dropping points in any of those two games means that their hopes of turning around this season are over and both the players and Conte should avoid that at any cost. "We are putting pressure on the other teams".

If they beat Real in Kiev on May 26 to win a sixth European Cup, they will not need to worry about finishing in the top four, but it would be a high-risk strategy to put all of their Champions League eggs in that particular basket.

Antonio Conte had nearly written off Chelsea's Champions League qualification hopes a month ago, but now dares to dream of upsetting Liverpool or Tottenham and claiming a place in the Premier League top four.

Accompanying Swift were her parents, Scott and Andrea: " They were the sweetest people , and it meant so much to my husband and me as parents", Lilly McCune, Isabella's mother, told People .

"I hate the result".

Liverpool did plenty of pressing but could not find an equaliser. Rafa Benitez has won points from Arsenal, Manchester United, and Liverpool this season, although it is worth noting the Magpies have lost every single away fixture against the top six, and by an aggregate score of 13-3.

"Everyone knows how much I owe him for having given me the opportunity to fulfil my childhood dream", Giroud said.

"Chelsea has to win as well". The last game of the season, they travel to St. James's Park to play Newcastle, a game that will be really hard to end the long season. "Newcastle is not a holiday trip".

In the post-match conference, Klopp pointed out that Salah's dive could lead referees to be wary of giving decision in favor of the Liverpool's winger in the future.

"It's freakish to not see him at Arsenal anymore, but I think he'll go somewhere else, because he wants to continue".

During the offseason, the staffs of Jürgen Klopp were still looking for someone to complement the attack formed by the Brazilians Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho and the Senegalese Sadio Mané.
