Liverpool fans delighted with top-four finish

The Gunners did all they could to qualify, beating Everton 3-1 at home. Manchester United might be doing the same and moving on from Wayne Rooney and David de Gea, while for crosstown rival Manchester City, Sergio Aguero scored City in its 5-0 win and looked like he was trying to prove a point.

As it stands, Tottenham are in Pot 3 with a coefficient of 77,135 along with the confirmed qualified Anderlecht, Basel and Liverpool which means a far tougher draw.

That's Arsene Wenger's style of management. Alexis's contract ends in 2018 so it is a different situation.

There has been significant investment in the squad, with Özil, Sánchez, Granit Xhaka and Shkodran Mustafi all costing in excess of £30 million, but Arsenal's last three league points totals read 75, 71 and 75.

The Mirror reports Bournemouth players could be asking for pay rises as the England striker has apparently been offered weekly wages more than double that of the current highest paid player at the club.

"I think the club has a strong foundation, a strong organisation and everything to be one year out and come straight back in, like Chelsea did last season".

"It's quite easy to say "get rid of him", but who do you get?"

"If you have one odd year in 20 years, it is not a problem", Cech said.

"I think it's fantastic. I don't know many that have done that".

Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk is reportedly a target for manager Jurgen Klopp.

'There is still a lot of room for improvement and hopefully we can continue that in the Champions League next season.

Anfield, then, was understandably nervy about whether or not they could get the job done - but at least they were playing a visiting team that have been woeful this season.
