Liverpool's Potential Champions League Play-Off Opponents Revealed Ahead of Long-Awaited Return

Liverpool's 3-0 win over Middlesbrough secured fourth spot on the final day of the Premier League campaign and an August play-off to reach Europe's elite club competition outright for only the second time in eight seasons.

"Chelsea will have chances because they are quality and have shown that all season". No offer, from Usmanov or elsewhere, can get him to sell as it could be seen as an admission of failure and, more damming, a validation of his detractors that he bought into Arsenal ultimately as a way to profit off its back.

You could not question my love or my loyalty to this club because I said no to every club in the world to stay here with very restricted finances for years.

"Pep Guardiola spent £170million last summer and what did he get?"

City's big win wrapped up third place and automatic entry into the Champions League group stages.

Liverpool have no desire to sell their star player who helped the side wrap up a top-four finish this season. "In my situation at a big club I'm sacked".

"I would like him to stay to try to develop something to challenge for the Premier League, but at the moment we are quite a way away".

"I'm really proud of the boys, they did well", Klopp said.

Arsenal, yet again, have had a predictable season.

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.

James Pearce detailed in his end-of-season column in the Liverpool Echo the five areas in which the club needs to address in the summer as their fixture list will pile up for next season. Most of the games this year even though we have lost points, we have dominated games.

He has impressed in Serie A, scoring 15 goals, and making 11 assists, in 30 league games last season.

Arsenal, on the other hand, will have to settle for the Europa League after not qualifying for the Champions League for the first time in 20 years. Their season is heavily dependent on Wednesday's Europa League final, where they could add another trophy to their EFL Cup title this season.
