(Video) Mohamed Salah deals hammer blow to Chelsea, deadlock broken against Brighton

After Jurgen Klopp guided his team to the Champions League on the final day of 16/17, repeating the trick now in 17/18 means the Reds have qualified for the competition in back-to-back campaigns.

Chris Hughton made four changes for his side's final game of the campaign, along with switching formation from 4-4-1-1 to 4-3-3.

The home side dominated throughout, Jonjo Shelvey's fierce strike saved by Thibaut Courtois and Mo Diame forcing the Chelsea keeper into further action, and broke through after 23 minutes when Dwight Gayle finished after Jacob Murphy's header had been pushed away. That should have been the opening goal for Liverpool!

Mohamed Salah has given Liverpool the lead against Brighton at Anfield in the 26 minute. He was also named in the PFA Team of the Year.

Fans have faced soaring flight fares and inflated hotel prices, while the club were allocated 16,626 tickets.

Shane Duffy handled a cross from Trent Alexander-Arnold before the Republic of Ireland defender upended Salah in the area and only got the slightest of touches on the ball.

When asked if he could repeat this season's heroics, Salah was emphatic: "I will, don't worry". He came deep to get possession, found the rest of his attacking teammates in dangerous positions, and essentially played as a bona fide No 10 and thrived in the role.

Chelsea need Brighton to win in order to qualify for Champions League. We have two games now starting with a game on Sunday.

Brighton had already secured their survival by beating Manchester United last weekend.

"I saw their win against Manchester United and of course in the aftermath much of the focus is on Manchester not winning, but this is so unfair". He will score in the future, 100%.

Here's a look at the talking points from the game.

However, while Keita walks through the door, another quality midfielder is set to exit.

What do you think - can Salah repeat history once again and take the Premier League by storm for a second time?

But the Hammers found a moment of quality to break the deadlock, Manuel Lanzini being teed up by Marko Arnautovic.

"Some people have asked me if two weeks is too long and I say: 'no, it is perfect'", Klopp said.

They were given little hope of causing an upset that would see Liverpool fall out of the top four for the first time since the turn of the year.
