Liverpool Hoping To Beat Arsenal & Man Utd To £10m Defender Deal

Klopp though thinks we've had a good season regardless of the weekend's results, claiming even perennial Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich would struggle to win the English top flight.

Arsenal would take over Liverpool's fourth place spot with a win and banish Klopp to the Europa League, the competition they almost won last season.

On Tuesday night, City host West Brom live on Sky Sports 1 HD while Arsenal are at home to Sunderland on Sky Sports 2 HD.

Arsenal's victory against Sunderland yesterday kept them in the race, while Manchester United is now mathematically eliminated from any possible top four finish.

Alexis Sanchez does not support the fan-led attacks on Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, going as far as to call the demonstrations "very bad".

"The ones that needed to play 90 mins got to play, we got no injuries. After that you deal with what happens".

A win at Anfield, pending Man City's result at Watford, could see Liverpool finish third, though three points will be enough to ensure a top-four finish either way. There is also a possibility of a playoff between Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal.

Arsenal will finish in the top four if they beat Everton on Sunday provided Liverpool lose or draw against relegated Middlesbrough. The Anfield faithful would nearly rather play the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea, and when you consider their form in the games against the top six, it makes sense. Should fourth-placed Liverpool beat Middlesbrough, they would at least secure entry into the Champions League qualifying round.

If the Reds can not defeat Middlesbrough, they do not deserve to be in next season's Champions League.


Largely invisible until then, Sanchez's 20th Premier League goal makes him the first Arsenal player since Robin van Persie to reach that milestone since 2011/12. Because we don't fight, we know it's a big objective, we know that if we lose the final we don't play Champions League, we know that.

Similarly a 2-2 draw for Arsenal and a 3-1 defeat for Liverpool would give us a play-off - a 5-5 draw for Arsenal and a 6-4 defeat for Liverpool would give us some great memories, as well as an extra game between the sides.
