As things stand, Liverpool are still 3rd on the table with 72 points from 37 games, with Tottenham (71 points from 36 games) and Chelsea (69 points from 36 games) snipping at their ankles.
However, Liverpool boast a far superior goal difference compared to Chelsea and should still finish fourth, at least, if they defeat Brighton and Hove Albion at Anfield next weekend. "Or he waited for the contact, I am not sure, so that is not what I want to see, that is not what he wants to do".
"We are winning and our opponents are dropping points".
Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte says that Alvaro Morata is likely to return to the first-team squad for Wednesday's Premier League fixture with Huddersfield Town. It was the same before against Roma, before the game they are very friendly and say, 'Hello Mo, how are you?' and hug here and there.
When asked whether he would like to sign Anthony Martial in the summer transfer window, Conte responded: "I think this is not the right moment to speak about this".
"Now we have played twice against former teammates". The Reds are without a win in their last three EPL games.
Liverpool had made a bright start and Roberto Firmino tested Thibaut Courtois with a dipping half-volley.
Liverpool did plenty of pressing but could not find an equaliser.
Tiemoue Bakayoko found Victor Moses on 32 minutes, whose cross deflected slightly off Mane for Giroud to plant a perfectly placed header into the corner.
Giroud dedicated his goal to teammate David Luiz, who has been absent from the Chelsea team with injury since February.
