Arsenal's failure to challenge for title is frustrating, says Alexis Sanchez

Providing they win a Champions League qualifier at the start of next season they will take their place in Europe's elite competition for only the second time in seven seasons, having missed out on Europe altogether this season. The gunners are fifth, one point behind Liverpool and three adrift of Man City.

Arsene Wenger has admitted for the first time that the uncertainty over his future has contributed to an "absolutely horrendous" environment for the Arsenal players this season.

"Have a look at my career, my seasons were always on the last match", said Klopp, who failed to qualify for the Champions League nearly exactly 12 months ago by losing the Europa League Final to Sevilla.

Wenger said he will make an announcement on his future following the FA Cup final on May 27. Liverpool needs to be there consistently.

"Of the season...yes", he said.

I'm going with a 4-1 win, despite the pressure and importance, although I wouldn't be surprised for us to deny our rivals a goal today.

True, it won't have helped financially and it has probably scuppered Roman Abramovich's plans to cash in the club's air miles for a free flight to Benidorm, but overall I think their enforced European absence was a contributing factor in their league triumph.

Alexis Sanchez, Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel could all miss Saturday's Wembley clash with Premier League champions Chelsea following a desperately disappointing day for the Gunners at Emirates Stadium, despite their victory.

"We were playing in a hostile environment", the Frenchman told reporters of his side's hard mid-season period. It depends on us.

"That's what we've done in the last three games".

Klopp says he would not have settled at the beginning of the season for a Champions League decider on the final day but has urged Liverpool to seize qualification.

Of course, if there was anything riding on the match with Palace - promotion, relegation, Champions League slot, etc - then moving it would have been wrong. "It is important for players because that is what they want to play in". There is a chance that we could end up in a fourth-placed play-off with one of the two sides, but that scenario is very unlikely, with our points and goals tallies needed to pair up.

Eddie Howe's Bournemouth has done more than just secure a third successive season in the Premier League but finished ninth - the team's highest placing since being founded in the 19th century.

Already certain to finish sixth, Manchester United will send out a team largely comprised of youth team players as boss Jose Mourinho keeps his senior stars fresh for next week's Europa League final against Ajax.

Arsenal will be in the Europa League with Everton, which finished in seventh place and scored its only goal at the Emirates Stadium from the penalty spot through Romelu Lukaku in the 57th minute.
