Conte convinced of Chelsea future for Bakayoko

I don't know if this will be enough at the end of the season.

In order to capitalise, they must win their first win their own matches.

Chelsea go into the game against Huddersfield still in the hunt for a top four spot in the Premier League, and with it, a place in next season's Champions League.

Mohamed Salah did not look that interested against Chelsea, which was odd, but I was more concerned with the way Liverpool's entire front three played at the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday.

Conte's side are two points behind Tottenham and three adrift of Liverpool with two games to play.

Chelsea pushed and pushed for a victor but it would not come, and it appears unlikely they will now make the Champions League.

Nevertheless, Chelsea entertain Huddersfield Town on Wednesday retaining a chance of sneaking into the top four and are on a run of five consecutive wins in all competitions, with the FA Cup final against Manchester United still to come.

Olivier Giroud has shown that he can act as the target man for Chelsea whenever called upon, so Conte or the Chelsea hierarchy are better off looking at strikers who fit the bill and are long-term options as well. "Today we must be pleased, because I saw great desire, will to fight, great will to keep the hope alive to take a place in the Champions League".

The Blues are gunning for a victory which could propel the club into the top-4, depending on the outcome of Tottenham's match with Newcastle, while relegation-threatened Huddersfield are desperately seeking the point that will secure their top-flight survival.

"Our attacking play has been absolutely brilliant, we have blown teams away".

"Did I think that would happen?" At 31, he is not going to play every game every week and though he might be a game changer in the league, he is just not what they need at the moment.

"For sure it was a good signing for us", Conte responded at his pre-Huddersfield Town presser when asked about Giroud's impact.

Klopp also condemned Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah for a dive that earned him a booking.

Alvaro Morata has returned to contention after missing the Liverpool win with a minor injury.
