Liverpool eyeing silverware after top-four finish - Milner

The Gunners still held on to win, with Romelu Lukaku pulling one back from the penalty spot for Everton but Aaron Ramsey completing the 3-1 victory in stoppage time.

Liverpool ended the season one point ahead of fifth-place Arsenal, thanks to the home victory over relegated Middlesbrough. Captain Vincent Kompany netted after five minutes and City went on to beat Watford 5-0, with Sergio Aguero, Fernandinho and Gabriel Jesus also contributing to the rout.

The only area where they've regressed is in the cup competitions, but they still managed to reach the semi-final of the League Cup where they were dumped out by a stubborn Southampton side.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said the outcome was "frustrating". "We want to be there", added the German. "Our points total is decent if you look at it over the years".

Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, and Liverpool were some of the best sides in England this season, but their earnings do not necessarily reflect where they finished in the actual league. I'm very proud of the boys.

Barton, 34, played against Liverpool in Burnley's 2-1 defeat in March, and the former England global says it's arguably the "worst side" he's ever faced at Anfield.

"But defensively the keeper is still an issue and they are playing [James] Milner at left-back".

"One thing you can not question is my love for this club".

That it turn has meant that even were he to remain at the club, Jürgen Klopp and Liverpool would have to construct a first choice squad around the assumption that Sturridge wouldn't be in it-that his involvement would be as a bonus rather than as a building block.

He said: "That is for the club to decide, for myself I am enjoying my football".

"We will be really strong and we will really fight for it because we want to be there and it's all good".

Asked why his personal situation had not been resolved, he replied: "I don't know". It certainly made Jurgen Klopp's half time team talk easier.

But having banked £148m in prize money and television payments this season - and with a minimum of £40million expected from the Champions League providing they get through a play-off in August - there will be significant funds available.

United's Josh Harrop, 21, scored the opening goal against Palace on his league debut while 16-year-old substitute Angel Gomes became the youngest player to feature for the Old Trafford club in the Premier League era.
