Wenger accepts uncertainty over his position hurt Arsenal

Wenger's side won 3-1 against Everton, but Liverpool's 3-0 victory over Middlesbrough and Manchester City's 5-0 demolition of Watford pushed Arsenal out of Europe's elite.

Disappointed Arsenal could point out that their total of 75 points was more than they achieved in finishing runners-up last season and would normally have put them in the top four.

"Usually at the end of the season you are exhausted", Klopp said, "but tomorrow I could start again".

Liverpool Attacker Philippe Coutinho says he would like to stay at Liverpool and try to become a club legend rather than move to Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich and become 'just another player'.

Klopp hardly spent big last summer with the majority of his outlay going on Sadio Mane (£30million) and Georginio Wijnaldum (£25m).

At Vicarage Road, City wrapped up third place and automatic entry into the Champions League group stages.

The report noted that the transfer is now "more feasible" given the Gunners will be playing in the UEFA Europa League next season, meaning Barcelona will adopt a "new strategy" in pursuit of the Spain worldwide. It's about finding a way to win, " added the 31-year-old.

The first full season of the Jurgen Klopp era ends with a spot in the Champions League, which brings relief to the club coffers and, psychologically, more of a sense that they're moving in the right direction.

Chelsea, who endured a torrid first half of 2015/16 under Jose Mourinho, made the biggest step up, with a 43-point difference between last season and this time out.

"I am a Liverpool player and want to be contributing as much as I can for the football club". Champions League or not, the Gunners are in a strong position and would surely demand a massive fee before agreeing to any sale. "I have a little bit of work to do but it's a few phone calls and a little bit of talking about wonderful things like football, Liverpool and other things, so it's good".

"But it's hard to see Arsenal finish in the top four next year because they don't spend the kind of money on wages or in the transfer market that you need to keep up".

Former Burnley midfielder Joey Barton has heavily criticised Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool team, describing them as the "worst side" that he has played against at Anfield.
