Four finish "perfect" preparation for Champions League final - Klopp

That's because Jurgen Klopp's side have the small matter of the Champions League final to concentrate on before they can start making any preparations for next season.

However, Chelsea wasted a golden opportunity to move level on points with Liverpool after being held to a 1-1 draw by Huddersfield Town at Stamford Bridge in midweek. You saw today (Adam) Lallana come on, we missed him the whole year, I can't believe it, how we could achieve something like this without a player like him.

Newcastle will be without loan signing Kenedy as he can't face his parent club while Islam Slimani is suspended.

With 10 assists as well, Salah is only the fifth player with 40 or more goals and assists combined in a Premier League season.

Liverpool would have slipped out of the top four had they lost and Chelsea beaten Newcastle, but they made sure the Blues' performance - a 3-0 defeat at St James' Park - was irrelevant.

"I will go to Milan for the (testimonial) game for Andrea Pirlo on the 21st", said the former Juventus coach. The bookmakers favor Los Blancos at -150 to retain the crown for the third time in a row, while the Reds are slight underdogs at +120 to win their second Champions League trophy in this century, so let's see what can the bettors and soccer fans expect from this clash.

"The situation, especially for a place in the Champions League, is not in our hands". Maybe we have not had the most successful season in the history of football, but it has been quite successful.

Upcoming events in Kiev were, understandably, on everybody's minds at Anfield, but a victory over Brighton was the immediate priority before focusing on the Champions League final against Real Madrid on May 26.

But by netting the opener against Brighton, the recently crowned PFA Player of the Year now stands alone at the top of the pile with 32, the 22nd league game he's scored in this season.

"It's not automatic that you finish every season in the top four".

Carlos Carvalhal's side are three points behind fourth-bottom Southampton, who secured a crucial win over the Welsh club in midweek and have a significantly better goal difference than their relegation rivals.
