Liverpool's James Milner targets trophies after top-four finish

But after the Reds beat Middlesbrough 3-0 on Sunday to secure their place in the Champions League qualifiers, Coutinho has made a huge statement of intent over his future.

But even as Arsenal's continuous pursuit of a fourth Premier League title eludes them, it always seems they are a shoe-in for Champions League football year in and year out.

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp expressed his pride yesterday after his side sealed a top-four finish in the Premier League that had looked doubtful after a bad loss of form in January.

RTÉ Soccer analyst Eamon Dunphy believes that Arsenal's transfer and recruiting policy is to blame for them finishing outside of the top four this year, rather than manager Arsene Wenger.

Holding added: "We had a little play with it at Bolton under Neil Lennon when I first got back into that team". However, Spurs will find themselves in pot three also if Manchester United win their Europa League final against Ajax this week, due to the Manchester club's higher Uefa coefficient.

Leipzig want to hold on to Keita, whose goals from central midfield have catapulted the team into the Champions League next season, where they are set to be joined by Liverpool.

"I've turned down every club in the world to stay here".

"Overall I believe that we played since January in a very hard environment for different reasons", Wenger said. "It's very unusual because for 75 points we are one point short and of course you can look everywhere where we did drop points".

Wenger, whose side face Premier League champions Chelsea in next week's FA Cup final, said it was "very sad" Arsenal will not be playing in Europe's top competition next season. Here we take a look at where Liverpool have improved this season.

There are likely to be several alterations to the Liverpool squad this summer as manager Jurgen Klopp seeks to ensure that his players can cope with the additional workload brought about from being in the Champions League.

'In the last 10 years, Liverpool was not a part of it too often.
