Sanchez and Ozil all smiles in Arsenal training ahead of Everton clash

"It should not sound negative but, if Champions League is the only reason why a player is coming, it makes no sense for him or for us because one year of not qualifying and the player decides (he) wants another Champions League club". With one eye on the transfer window, Gibson will want to end the season with a good performance and he could have a key role to play on Sunday.

And this play-off would occur if City were to incredibly lose 4-0 at Watford while Arsenal pick up a routine 1-0 win at home to Everton.

Adams, who quit Arsenal's academy a year ago for a job in China, said Wenger has four times denied him a return to the Emirates.

Klopp admitted that securing Champions League football for next season would herald a "new era", purely because Liverpool have never been there under his management and that rather being the final game of one season, Middlesbrough presented the start of a "new cycle" because the outcome influences directly what follows.

Arsenal go into Sunday's clash with the Toffees knowing they can not afford to drop points if they are to have any chance of UEFA Champions League football next term.

Liverpool vs Middlesbrough at Anfield.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said on Friday the club has spoken to potential signings and he is determined to bring in "a few" new faces in the summer. They will be expecting to finish the job, but they have struggled against the bottom-half teams during this campaign and there will be some fears within the fan-base that they could fall at the final hurdle this weekend.

The former Borussia Dortmund manager spoke about the financial benefits of being in the Champions League as Arsenal breathe down their necks.

If Liverpool go behind or fail to score early, the atmosphere at Anfield will likely become quite tense, and Klopp will need to galvanise his players into action.

Think you can do better than Lawro? However, they will take heart from the fact that four of Liverpool's five defeats this season have come against teams that were in the relegation zone.

Man City also lead in terms of take-ons, scoring attempts and have conceded the least number of times, while their 75 goals scored is equal highest with Jurgen Klopp's side. Does that mean they are going to play with a bit of freedom or are they going to sit in?

"It's hard to make the rehabilitation because what this injury needs is time", he said.

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.
