In QCD, propagators of fundamental fields encode information about non-perturbative phenomena, such as confinement, deconfinement and chiral symmetry breaking. In this talk we aim to review our recent lattice results for the quark and ghost propagators at finite temperature in the Landau gauge, focusing on the change of behaviour due to the deconfinement phase transition.
