'Giddy' Klopp wishes Liverpool could start next season tomorrow

'Giddy' Klopp wishes Liverpool could start next season tomorrow

Arsenal will be missing from the Champions League next season for the first time in 20 years after failing to squeeze into the Premier League's top four despite beating Everton 3-1 with 10 men in Sunday's finale.

James Milner has challenged potential Liverpool signings to prove they belong on the Champions League stage, admitting it would be disrespectful for players to opt for Anfield exclusively to feature in the competition.

League meetings with Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and the Manchester clubs in 2016-17 yielded five wins and five draws for Jürgen Klopp's team. "Of course you can look everywhere for where we dropped these points, but since January it's been a very hard environment for different reasons".

Pep Guardiola's side required only a point to secure a top-four place, but instead of sitting back went about dismantling their opponents.

He has scored 14 times for Liverpool this season, with 13 coming in the Premier League.

"We have previously announced that there will be no increase to GA pricing for Premier League, Emirates FA Cup and League Cup games in Season 2017/18", they revealed in a season ticket renewal email on Monday.

Another deadly explosion rocks Kabul, 19 feared dead, several injured
Salem Izadyar died at a hospital after he was injured Friday in anti-government protests in Kabul , Afghan media reported. Most of the casualties from Monday's truck bombing were civilians, including women and children, officials have said.

The player's current manager, Jurgen Klopp, has apparently also urged the midfielder to stay at the club for the long term. But playing in those sort of occasions and in those big games is important.

Wenger has not said if he wants to stay.

"Of course you want to avoid this drama", Wenger said.

Overall I believe that we played since January in a very hard environment for different reasons.

But of what happens in the cup final, Wenger insisted that the squad doesn't need a major overhaul next season.

"You have to keep 90% of these players together and find one or two more to strengthen the group".
