Liverpool have announced their starting line-up and substitutes to take on Antonio Conte's Chelsea side in a Premier League game this afternoon.

Meanwhile, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has termed the clash as akin to a Champions League semi-final as the Blues have to win to keep any hope alive of making it to the Champions League next season. In contrast, Chelsea's winning the league in 206/17 was more to do with perseverance as you can not manage to slack in a 38 game season. How Mané, Salah and Firmino play, will be huge to the final outcome of the match and whether Liverpool can confirm their place in the Champions League next season.

Chelsea still need one more defeat for Spurs or Liverpool to have matters back in their own hands, but if they do return to the Champions League, Giroud's goal worth its weight in gold.

Chelsea won the Premier League title in style in Conte's first campaign at the club last season.

The 1,120m-long Flying Dinosaur rollercoaster ride was launched in March 2016, with its highest point reaching 37m above ground. The park operator said it has replaced the faulty motor control part that caused the incident, NHK reported on Wednesday.

Here's how we lineup for the big game. The Blues were also dumped out of the League Cup and Champions League at crucial intervals of the tournaments by Arsenal and Barcelona respectively. Marcos Alonso, Cesc Fabregas, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Eden Hazard all went close and had Courtois not been at the top of his game early on the final outcome might have been very different.

"Luck is always important in every competition, but when you have the possibility to play 38 games you can show you are the best".

Because of the size of the achievement, it may be hard to focus on anything else but the final that will be played on May 26. We must be ready to get three points because it won't be easy. "The situation is very intense for the boys and I am really happy and proud of them how they deal with it".

Klopp sent on Dominic Solanke to provide more of a physical presence up front and the Liverpool youngster had the visitors' two best efforts in the closing stages, firstly heading just over from 12 yards and then nodding wide in stoppage time. "Now we prepare the next game".
