Chelsea beat Liverpool 1-0 at Stamford Bridge after Giroud struck to breath new life into the Blues' top four hopes.

One league win in five means Liverpool - who looked assured of a Champions League qualifying spot a month ago - are three points clear of Chelsea in fifth, having played a game more. Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses start in the wingback positions with Bakayoko, Cesc Fabregas and N'golo Kante in the middle.

Klopp took the initiative and replaced Clyne with Henderson soon after, with Alexander-Arnold returning to right-back after his more experienced counterpart's hard afternoon in his home city.
