Will Chelsea still be able to qualify for the Champions League?

In order to qualify for next season's Champions League Liverpool need to win at home against Brighton in their final match of the season or match Chelsea's result in their final game.

Third-placed Liverpool have a three point advantage over fifth-placed Chelsea, who are now two points behind fourth-placed Tottenham.

"We are winning and our opponents are dropping points", Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte was quoted as saying by BBC. "We have to try and get three points to apply pressure".

Salah and Liverpool are back in action on Sunday afternoon in the final day of the Premier League season, when the Reds host Brighton (3pm kick-off).

The Skilled Footballers' Affiliation and Soccer Writers' Affiliation participant of the 12 months regarded heavy-legged in Liverpool's 1-0 defeat towards Chelsea on Sunday and was booked within the first half when he fell to the bottom simply beneath minimal contact from Gary Cahill. "I am not sure".

Of course the Champions League final on 26 May is a distraction here, because it is staring them in the face.

Liverpool must prove to themselves they can do the same, which is why they need this game against Brighton.

Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah has reportedly picked jersey number 11 should he move to Spanish side Real Madrid at the end of the ongoing football League season in Europe. Arsene Wenger addresses the crowd at the Emirates after a 5-0 win for Arsenal over Burnley in his final home match as manager.

In his speech, Cross also said, "We in English football owe you a huge debt of gratitude and I hope you appreciate within the tributes in the last couple of weeks there has been a genuine and very heartfelt affection towards you".

"Did I think that would happen?"

Nathaniel Clyne put in a steady first half display in his first start of the season but exhausted in the second and could have left it too late to make it to Russian Federation. Spurs lost at West Brom on Saturday.

But they have two home games and four points would be good enough due to their superior goal difference - plus-six over Chelsea at present.

For Chelsea, though, the objective is clear and uncomplicated. If Spurs show up they will win, but if tiredness - or nerves, for a team that often gets referred to as "bottlers" - is a factor then Benitez's compact defence might just grind out a point.
