Chelsea moved to within two points of fourth-placed Tottenham after a 1-0 win against Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Chelsea take on Liverpool at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte says it takes luck to win the Champions League in light of Liverpool's surprising run to the competition's final this season. How Mané, Salah and Firmino play, will be huge to the final outcome of the match and whether Liverpool can confirm their place in the Champions League next season. "In my mind, there is the intention for him to be in contention for the game against Huddersfield". We should see Bakayoko starting, together with Olivier Giroud, in a mission to exploit Liverpool's defensive fragilities. "The league is equally important [as the Champions League]", Klopp said.

"Now we have a final next Sunday, and that's how life is". It is not we can decide about leaving one out.

Federal Reserve leaves interest rates unchanged
Some analysts think the Fed may signal then that it foresees four hikes for 2018, up from the three it predicted in March. Job gains remained strong, while growth in household spending moderate from its strong Q4 pace.

Players who impress at the prestigious tournament often see the valuations skyrocket, a fact that reportedly left the player anxious about the Reds pricing out of his dream move. The whole season is a constant challenge.

Giroud also spoke after Chelsea's big win.

On the final day of the season next Sunday, Chelsea head to Newcastle and Tottenham entertain Leicester. Liverpool's Egyptian forward will be particularly desperate for three points this time out, having been sold by Chelsea earlier in his career without ever being given much of a chance in the first team.

Conte has feuded with the Chelsea hierarchy over their failure to back his transfer plans last summer and Napoli's Maurizio Sarri this week became the latest manager to be linked with the Italian's job.

We have extremely low share in that market overall", Cook said during Apple's second quarter 2018 earnings call on Tuesday. That helped the company earn almost $14 billion in its fiscal second quarter, a 25 percent increase from a year ago. "...

With only one win in their last five league games, Liverpool have made their top four status an unnecessarily tense affair.

Hopeful of taking advantage of Liverpool tiredness after their European exploits, Conte said: "This could be a good opportunity for us". For this reason, I think that to win the Champions League you must be more lucky.

"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.

It has been a good week for Liverpool.
