Chelsea moved within two points of fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League after a 1-0 victory over Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday through an Olivier Giroud header.

On possibility of finishing in the top four, Conte added: "As I said previously our target is to finish the season in the best possible way and to give the best satisfaction to all the fans".

Today they drew against Manchester City, we want three points and I will probably make rotations because the players spent a lot of energy against Liverpool, but we must face the situation with great pride and we must show we are still alive'.

I saw something in the second leg of their semi-final against Roma which I have not seen all season, which was Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane being selfish for the first time.


That doesn't matter. People have been talking about this Liverpool attack as being among the best front threes we have seen in European competition, but that is on the basis of them playing together as a unit. Yes Salah has scored the majority, but they have been sharing the goals out, which is one of the reason things have worked so well.

The record is more than any other player in Europe's top five leagues.

"They've been fantastic this season between the three of them and the amount of goals that they've got so we're extra pleased coming off with a clean sheet".

I think we played as a team and not with only one player against Salah. "We knew we were going to have to put in a fantastic performance".
