Liverpool have helped change Champions League football


Therefore, a win tonight would move Antonio Conte's men level on points with the Merseysiders heading in to the final game of the season while they'll also be keeping a close eye on the score at Wembley.

Antonio Conte has nearly succeeded in removing the clouds of speculation concerning his future from the air around Stamford Bridge.

Emre Can may have played his last game for Liverpool, as he is reportedly losing his race to be fit for the Champions League final.

Writing in his Team of the Week column, Crooks said: "He has been so good at what he does I've nearly run out of things to say about this player".

"I think and I'm sure that I am Chelsea's coach and my focus is only on this", he told reporters.

Conte was critical of the situation his team find themselves in, saying: There is a bit of disappointment because this season we dropped many points in a stupid way.

"The only way to put a bit of pressure is this, to get three points in every game".

"The situation is not in our hands".

Alvaro Morata has returned to contention after missing the Liverpool win with a minor injury. The maligned midfielder has suffered a poor first season in London but gave a performance which justified the potential which Chelsea saw in him last summer.

While it was Olivier Giroud who struck the victor during Chelsea's 1-0 win over Liverpool, Blues boss Antonio Conte revealed he was impressed by not only the Frenchman, but midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko's display as well during Sunday's clash at Stamford Bridge.

"This season was a hard season, but not only for Morata", said Conte, who declined to address speculation the striker could leave this summer.

Toure, 34, has won three Premier League titles and four domestic cups during his eight seasons at City.

The Terriers can secure their safety from relegation with at least a draw on Wednesday evening and so won't be coming to lie down in front of Antonio Conte's side. It was even Huddersfield that scored first at the Bridge through Laurent Depoitre five minutes into the second half.

"But I think the Champions League has changed football in the last three months".
