Chelsea 1-0 Liverpool: Olivier Giroud keeps Blues' top-four hopes alive

Harry Kane has been backed by his club manager to be fully fit for the World Cup

The Blues head in to the game sitting five points adrift of Tottenham and six off Liverpool with a game in hand on their rivals so victory today would blow the race for the top four wide open.

Reflecting on what he has achieved, Cahill said: "To come for £7m, bought to be a squad player, to go on and win two Premier Leagues and team of the year three out of the last four, and then get the armband, for that money".

At the other side of London, Victor Moses put up a nice shift and bagged an assist to help Chelsea beat Liverpool 1-0 at the Stamford Bridge. The Egyptian is now level with Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez on 31. The Reds are without a win in their last three EPL games.

Brighton's win over Manchester United and Huddersfield's resolute display to become the first side all season to hold City to a blank at home means all three promoted clubs now look set to stay up.

MF Tiemoue Bakayoko, 8 - At the start of the season, Chelsea supporters concocted a song for Bakayoko which praised the fact that in tandem with Kante he never gave the ball away. However, Wednesday's match will have taken a lot out of the Merseysiders and I think that could prove crucial in this game.

Iwobi, making his 20th start of the English Premier League season for Arsenal in the win, last scored a goal against Crystal Palace on the 20th of January.

Chelsea face Liverpool in a big clash as the two sides challenge for a top-four place.

Chelsea slowly grew into the game but Liverpool maintained a threat on the break with Sadio Mane particularly lively coming in from the left.

The tie will see Mohamed Salah returning to his old home, while Jurgen Klopp will try to get a third consecutive win at Stamford Bridge.

However, Klopp remained positive after the defeat, choosing to praise his depleted team after a week that saw them secure a place in the Champions League final following the trip to Roma.
