Premier League 2017/18: 5 biggest surprises of the season

Gary Cahill sits down on a nice seat

Meanwhile, manager Antonio Conte has put the cat between the pigeons, calling Liverpool's foray into the finals of the Champions League as somewhat lucky as they managed to avoid the big European teams in the draw.

Olivier Giroud scored the only goal of the game as the Blues beat Liverpool 1-0 in the Premier League on Sunday and moved to within three points of their top-four rivals with a game in hand.

Chelsea's Champions League qualification hopes remain alive following a 1-0 win over Liverpool at sun-drenched Stamford Bridge.

Jurgen Klopp's side are still on a high following a 4-2 defeat at Roma on Wednesday that clinched a 7-6 aggregate success in the Champions League semi-finals. It was Giroud's third league goal in 11 appearances for Chelsea since he joined the club from Arsenal in January and his fifth goal in his last six EPL starts against Liverpool.

Former VW boss Martin Winterkorn charged with conspiracy and fraud
VW has admitted fitting up to 11 million diesel vehicles with software that could falsely show they complied with emissions tests. In March past year , VW paid a $2.8 billion fine after pleading guilty to deceiving U.S. regulators with the defeat devices.

As Mohamed Salah can testify, Chelsea have an nearly unique ability to chew up and spit out some of the very best players, and yet Cahill has seen off plenty of big-money signings and won Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Champions League and Europa League titles with the club.

Chelsea have also played a game less than Liverpool but the Reds have a vastly superior goal difference. "In the league, over 38 games, usually the team who deserves to win it wins it". Does this side have what it takes to win the game?

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. "We play the last game at home, Chelsea plays at Newcastle, so that's not a holiday trip", Klopp said. The boys showed me that they want to fight and to fight and to fight. Chelsea had a full week of rest and have their focus entirely on the Premier League now, something they could really take benefit. But first the Reds have to ensure they feature in next season's Champions League.
