Liverpool F.C. leave for Australia on Champions League high

That's not all: Sevilla (112,942) are also in the Champions League play-offs and have a coefficient worthy of Pot 2, so Spurs would also need the Spanish team to not reach the group stage to make Pot 2.

But midfielder Milner, who was used at left back this season, says he doesn't want players disrespecting his club.

The win kept the Manchester side two points ahead of Liverpool, whose comfortable success at home to Middlesbrough earned them a place in the Champions League playoff round.

Cech believes Arsenal can follow Chelsea's lead and bounce straight back into the Champions League - but only if the squad is kept together.

The Black Cats ended the season rooted at the bottom of the table with just 24 points - 15 fewer than previous year.

Even more galling for Arsenal fans was seeing arch-rivals Tottenham finish higher than the Gunners for the first time in 22 years as Mauricio Pochettino's side claimed second place in the table with England striker Harry Kane winning the national Golden Boot award with 29 goals for the season.

Liverpool had to suffer for 44 minutes of a hard afternoon against Middlesbrough, but once Gini Wijnaldum thrashed in the opening goal, they made short work of securing a 3-0 win that ensured they elbowed Arsenal out of the top four.

I love to win and I love to do well for my club.

Liverpool secured Champions League football next season with a 3-0 win over Middlesbrough on Sunday, and Coutinho was proud of the way they reacted to a run of one win in seven top-flight outings at the start of 2017.

"Every year qualifying for the Champions League will be tougher and tougher, and we are there".

With Laurent Koscielny suspended while Shkodran Mustafi and Gabriel are injury doubts, Holding will nearly certainly start when Arsenal take on Chelsea in the FA Cup final on Saturday. We should do everything to change this.

"One of them is, of course, what is happening with the manager, the future, the players who have to come in, the renewal of contracts".

"It's very unusual because, for 75 points, we are only one point short".

Watford said this week that manager Walter Mazzari would step down after the final game of the season against Manchester City. But they should not question it, I am professional, as long as I am somewhere I do my job until the last day. We had a few big rivalries but time has ended all that and I think we have big respect.
