Chelsea still in hunt for top four spot – Conte

Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, has praised his side for maintaining a Premier League top-four challenge, that once seemed “impossible”, after a 1-0 win over Liverpool on Sunday.

Olivier Giroud headed in the winner in the first half of the game at Stamford Bridge.

It was the Blues’ fifth successive win in all competitions, but they must defeat Huddersfield and Newcastle in their final two matches, while hoping that either Tottenham or Liverpool slip up in order to secure a place in next season’s Champions League.

“We must be pleased because the players played a really good game,” Conte said.

“Usually when you have to play a must-win game, it’s not easy. It’s normal to be a bit nervous. Today it was a must-win game, but not against a simple opponent.

“[Liverpool] are verydangerous, these three strikers, and it’s impressive the way they attack, and the way they defend the ball, and the combinations.
