"Probably one month ago it was impossible to imagine we would arrive at the end of the season fighting for the Champions League", Conte added.

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.

For starters, Chelsea should never have had to dig in for all three points - the team had enough chances to establish some daylight and the nervous last half hour could have been avoided if they had taken advantage of just one of their openings during the first 60 minutes.

Even if they don't finish in the top four, Liverpool can return to Europe's elite club competition by defeating Real Madrid in the Champions League final on May 26.

Tottenham Hotspurs only need to win their remaining two home games against Newcastle and Leicester City to seal a top-four slot.

They are three behind Liverpool with extra game but have worse goal difference.

The Italian said: "They are very risky, these three strikers".

Customers with higher incomes were twice as likely to notice the calorie labels and three times more likely to use them. However, all chains that serve food with 20 or more locations - including movie theaters and grocers - must now comply.

Chelsea became European champions for the first time in 2012, but finished sixth in the league, resulting in fourth-placed Tottenham missing out on Champions League entry for the following season. "I hope to see you soon, well done, goodbye".

"Of course we have played better games this season but in our situation against Chelsea, who are a world-class team, that is quite a challenge to do it much better than we did today".

Whoever finishes fifth will have to settle for a spot in the Europa League alongside Arsenal and Burnley, who met on Sunday in Arsene Wenger's final home match in charge of the London club.

Yes, it is just one game where that did not happen but it has happened this week, and it was followed by another game against Chelsea where they did not link up as well as usual. "I think it's a nice reaction (from the fans)". "Usually when you have to play a must-win game, it is not easy".

"I'm really proud of the boys because they again invested everything", Klopp said.

Meanwhile, Mohamed Salah's wait to break the Premier League record for most goals in a 38-game season continues, with the Egyptian having now gone three games without finding the back of the net.

It was nearly as if they had looked at the records books about who had scored what in the Champions League and were thinking "I want to be the man who scores the most". I saw great desire and a great will to keep our Champions League hopes alive.
