Giroud demands important role at Chelsea next season

Mohamed Salah screamer gives Liverpool vital win against Chelsea

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah rips screamer vs. Chelsea

Although Liverpool are only four wins from their first league title since 1990 should City slip up in any of their remaining five matches, Klopp has insisted the focus is on finishing the season with 97 points and not on what Pep Guardiola's team produce. "I don't know, I have no clue about that now, but before the end of the season [he wants clarity]".

'I have to meet Marina Granovskaia (club director). "I was really happy".

"Obviously I'm happy to be here".

In any other season, Liverpool would be on their way to a Premier League title. "But I want to retire satisfied".

Liverpool FC will take on FC Barcelona for a place in their second successive Champions League final. Him, [Roberto] Firmino and [Sadio] Mane all play well together but I think he's become a little bit more "it's about me now, it's my time".

"You need to keep that frustration and transform it into positive energy".

Liverpool's attack attracted the most attention during a stunning campaign a year ago that saw them reach the Champions League final in spectacular fashion. In his last eight appearances for club and country, Giroud has scored six goals, and he has found the net at least once in six of his ten UEL games.

Asked if it is now Chelsea's decision to make, Giroud replied: "That's it".

That defeat was sparked by a slip by Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard that let in Demba Ba to score the first goal, and Chelsea's visiting fans reminded the home supporters about that moment throughout the game on Sunday.

Mohamed Salah is the only male footballer to be named in Time's 100 most influential people of 2019.

Senegalese striker Demba Ba, who profited from the Englishman's mistake by scoring the opening goal in Chelsea's 2-0 victory over Liverpool, has now insisted that he did not feel sorry for Gerrard as he was only doing his job.

However, Chelsea's assistant coach Gianfranco Zola expects the German global to return for the league trip to top-four rivals Manchester United on April 28.

Chelsea hold a 1-0 lead from last week's first leg in Prague. "He's a warrior", said Zola. "The next few days will be very important to see if he can continue recovering".
