Coutinho's answer to Barcelona question will please Liverpool fans greatly

Misery for Arsenal as City Liverpool book Champions League berths

'Champions League was a step along the way.

Liverpool have qualified for the Champions League only twice in eight seasons and their manager said the club's status demands that it becomes a regular occurrence.

That has fuelled talk of a possible summer transfer, with the 30-year-old aware of the need to get regular game time at this stage of his career.

"It's disrespectful to the club if you say the only reason you are going to Liverpool is for Champions League", said Milner. Antonio Conte's side finally received the Premier League trophy after routing bottom-placed Sunderland 5-1 on Sunday, two weeks after securing a second title in three seasons.

Milner also sees the prospect of playing in the Champions League as an opportunity to help the development of Klopp's largely-youthful squad.

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

But it was not enough as wins for Manchester City and Liverpool saw Arsenal miss out on a top-four finish by one point.

Wenger said he will make an announcement on his future following the FA Cup final on May 27.

"Psychologically, the environment for this group of players was absolutely horrendous and I'm very proud of what they have done, the way they responded and finished the season".

"I know managers defend themselves by using certain things but we actually have a better total of points this season than we had a year ago and we finished second".

Midfielder Sam Clucas pulled one back but Victor Wanyama and Kane, completing his fifth hat trick of 2017 in all competitions, emphasised Tottenham's superiority with his 29th league goal of the season.

"The attitude he has they were talking whether it's disturbing, I'm sure he must have his moments like every single player and especially big players, but this is a guy where you have to build a team around".

"There is no training in the next few weeks".

Arsenal, Juventus and Ireland legend Brady also feels the increased competition among the Top 6-7 sides makes it hard for all the clubs involved. We did everything to win the game but we had to score in the first half.

Beating Chelsea in next Saturday's final would provide some salvation for Wenger in this miserable season but he will be depleted in defense.
