Mo Salah has fired Liverpool's bid at home and overseas with a stunning 43 goal debut season at Anfield and will return to Stamford Bridge for the first time as the recently crowned double player-of-the-season. We have to get three points.
A win against Huddersfield on Wednesday can get Chelsea level on points with Liverpool, but their inferior goal difference means they would nearly certainly need a favour from Brighton to get in ahead of the Merseyside club. Lose, and they will need to beat Brighton at Anfield next Sunday. In the league, over 38 games, usually the team who deserves to win it wins it.
There may be a bit of regret on his part though, despite clinching the Primera division's top spot with La Blaugrana recently, with Liverpool having secured progression to the Champions League final while Barca were knocked out by AS Roma in the quarters.
Antonio Conte is happy that Chelsea are still "fighting until the end" after a hard season for last season's champions. "I'm not sure", Klopp said. The good thing is that we have another game but we don't think about that at the moment.
"We're talking about a player with specific characteristics, good technical [quality] but also very fast".
But despite their pressure, Liverpool were caught with a sucker punch in the 32nd minute as Giroud justified Conte's decision to select him at the expense of the out of form Alvaro Morata.
For Tottenham, they must keep matching or bettering Chelsea's results to stay ahead of them.
Victor Moses teased Andrew Robertson as he worked space to swing over a cross and Giroud, stealing in front of the slow to react Dejan Lovren, glanced a fine header into the far corner of the net.
