Man City and Liverpool beat Arsenal to Champions League

23 May 2017, 11:16 | Susie Olson

"We are satisfied because we are in the Champions League, and tomorrow we will think about what we need to do next season, when the pressure will be the same", Guardiola told reporters after City sealed third place with the victory.

Arsenal defeated Everton 3-1 on the final day of the Premier League season but, with Manchester City and Liverpool winning against Watford and Middlesbrough respectively, there was no late surge into the Champions League places.

"This is done, we are in the Europa League, there is nothing we can do about it". Arsenal slipped down early in the race to make amends, failing to reach the top four after twenty years.

The outspoken TV pundit made those comments prior to Klopp securing a top-four finish for his side, which they achieved on the last day of the season.

"There is nothing better maybe in the world".

Liverpool will need to win a two-legged playoff in August to play in the Champions League for only the second time in eight seasons, since American-run Fenway Sports Group bought the club in 2010.

Long-serving boss Wenger, who once again insisted his future will not be determined until after next Saturday's FA Cup final against Chelsea, admitted he was "very sad" at missing out on the Champions League for the first time.


"I've gone on record, I would well and truly be in the Wenger camp." he said. "More than ever we had to stick together and be strong because it's been very hard for us".

However, the 24-year-old has allayed concerns he will be on the move in the close-season, outlining why he would prefer to stay at Liverpool. The Brazilian put in another eye-catching performance which will continue to alert some of the biggest clubs on the continent including Barcelona, a team he's regularly linked with.

"I would have liked to have played more", Sturridge added of the just completed campaign, "but I am grateful to the club for the opportunities and the manager has been really nice to me".

Speaking in Dublin this morning, former Arsenal midfielder Brady defended Wenger and said his achievements as manager since 1996 shouldn't be discarded on the back of one season.

"Honestly, I really don't know which way it's going to go now".

I hope it has given us a little bit more confidence in general and we can work with this.

He added: "We do our job and you are professional and part of the job is being professional when the environment is not positive".
