The moment Mohamed Salah knew he had to leave Chelsea

Chelsea's French striker Olivier Giroud (R), Liverpool's Senegalese midfielder Sadio Mane (C) and Chelsea's Belgian midfielder Eden Hazard vie for the ball during the English Premier League football match between Chelsea and Liverpool at Stamford Bridge in London on May 6, 2018.

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.

"It's completely normal for attacking players to be like this", Klopp told BBC Sport after a result that leaves his side just three points clear of the fifth-place Blues.

"Liverpool is a team who are very risky and if you leave a lot of space behind the defensive line their players are impressive the way they attack the space, but also playing through the lines and in their combinations". Liverpool's Egyptian forward will be particularly desperate for three points this time out, having been sold by Chelsea earlier in his career without ever being given much of a chance in the first team.

Klopp's team should still be able to guarantee a Champions League berth if they beat Brighton at Anfield on Sunday.

The Brazilian centre-back has endured a hard season due to inconsistent form and injuries and Giroud recognises he has had a turbulent time.

They are still in control and a win against Brighton should be enough given their superior goal difference over Chelsea. I was not sure. We play at home in our last game, they play at Newcastle.

"We want something big at the season, so when you win games like this it's good for the whole team".

Jurgen Klopp was unconcerned by Mohamed Salah's disappointing performance against Chelsea, refuting the suggestion the Egypt winger is suffering burnout. Liverpool did plenty of pressing but could not find an equalizer.

Chelsea's 23 interceptions on Sunday were the most they have made in the current Premier League campaign and only twice have they made more clearances in a top-flight contest this term.
