Klopp tells Salah to stop diving, but backs him to rediscover form

  • Loris Karius

"It was a dive or he waited for the contact". I'm not sure. That's not what I want to see, that's not what he wants to do. I don't know if this will be enough at the end of the season.

Olivier Giroud got the decisive goal, heading beyond Loris Karius to open the scoring in the first half - and Antonio Conte's men managed to hold on to get all three points and keep the pressure on the top four. Our opponents are dropping points. We play at home in our last game, they play at Newcastle. Usually when you have to play a must-win game, it is not easy.

There was no Alvaro Morata in the Chelsea squad, with Conte saying the Spanish striker picked up an injury before the match though not one that will definitely end his season. We have to try, though.

Tottenham Hotspur (holding down the last top four position by two points) host Newcastle Wednesday and head to Leicester City Sunday.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has warned Mohamed Salah not to resort to diving but backed the Egyptian to rediscover his scoring touch ahead of the Champions League final.

A fourth successive victory equalled Chelsea's longest league winning streak this season, keeping them in the hunt for a top four finish while denting third-placed Liverpool's challenge for the same target.

Jose Mourinho is believed to prefer January signing Alexis Sanchez because of his higher work rate and his relentless public criticism of Martial after the most recent defeat could have pushed Martial one step closer to an exit, and it looks like Chelsea might be keeping tabs on developments.

"I'm really proud of the boys because they again invested everything", Klopp said.

Salah was unable to make a mark against his former side on Sunday in what was a frustrating afternoon for the Reds.

It's now three games without a goal for the summer signing from Roma, but Klopp doesn't have any concerns about an impending dry spell with a Champions League final with real Madrid around the corner.

"He (Salah) can do much better".

The Italian said: "They are very unsafe, these three strikers".

"One month ago, it was impossible to imagine we could fight for a place in the Champions League".
