Mohamed Salah, Liverpool's 43-goal forward, was stifled by former Roma team-mate Antonio Rudiger.

"What I wanted this morning when I woke up, nice and easy, 3-0 win, going home, enjoying the sun and don't care for the Brighton game, and prepare already for the final".

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard insists that his side will continue fighting until the end of the season in their bid to sneak into the Champions League places. We are getting in every game three points.

Salah has been superb for the Reds and he has made an incredible impact in helping the Anfield outfit to maintain a top four sport so far and reached the Champions League finals The Egypt worldwide has scored 40 goals in all competitions this season and subsequently won the PFA player of the year. So how plausible is that and where are the points most likely to be dropped? I don't know if this will be enough at the end of the season. Did I think it would happen? "It does not only depend on us but we will play, we will hopefully win, and then we will see the results of Tottenham and Liverpool and we will give everything", Hazard told Chelsea TV.

"We're putting pressure on the teams that stay ahead of us. We play our last game at home and Chelsea have to go to Newcastle - that's not a holiday trip, it doesn't sound like a holiday trip to me".

"The boys showed me that they are really ready to fight and to fight and to fight".

It was nearly as if they had looked at the records books about who had scored what in the Champions League and were thinking "I want to be the man who scores the most".

Salah was unable to make a mark against his former side on Sunday in what was a frustrating afternoon for the Reds. "He, for sure, did not have his best game tonight, but these situations become very physical".

"He can do much better, and he will score again, but today was not a game for (him),' Klopp added".

Liverpool started on the front foot with Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane forcing goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois into smart saves.

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

Chelsea's faint Champions League hopes have lingered on for much longer than expected.
