Arsenal's top four hopes rest on Middlesbrough as Liverpool hammer West Ham

15 Mai 2017

The 4-0 win ensures Liverpool can secure their place in the Premier League's top four by beating already relegated Middlesbrough in next weekend's season finale at Anfield.

Daniel Sturridge reflected on Liverpool's emphatic win over West Ham on Sunday afternoon as a "great victory" after scoring in his first league start since January.

Arsenal are fifth on 69 points from 36 games and must win home matches with Sunderland on Tuesday and Everton on Sunday, and hope Liverpool and City drop points to qualify for Europe's elite competition. To ignore the bad part of pressure and use the good part of pressure. But they couldn't score, then we controlled the game, then we scored the goal and we had another big chance with the header. I thought we were really deserved winners.

Liverpool move up to third with 73 points from 37 games, but need Manchester City to slip up in their final two games to stay there as they bid to claim an automatic group spot in the Champions League for the first time since 2015.

"I'm at this club, I'm enjoying my football when I play. But counting points in the next game is really silly, we won't do this".

Giving a start to Daniel Sturridge in place of the injured Roberto Firmino and the oft injured striker repaid the boss for his chance, latching on to a flawless through-ball from Philippe Coutinho en-route to rounding Iron's 'keeper Adrian and slotting home the opener.

You do . awful approval numbers. "I hear they're thinking of switching your time slot with Mike Pence ". Stephen Colbert is a talentless potty-mouth who's only still on television because of Donald Trump .

Divock Origi added further gloss on 75 minutes, much to the delight of Klopp.

By now, the visitors were completely dominant and clinched the all-important second goal just before the hour. Nothing surprising there given the frequency with which the Liverpool manger hugs his players but this one felt a little different: tighter, longer, stronger. He needs to be in the decisive area in the middle of the park, he needs to be in shooting situations and all that stuff.

A 4-0 thrashing at the home of West Ham was made all the more pleasing by an all-action Sturridge in full flow for the first time in a while and looking as sharp as he has been in months. Nathaniel Clyne appeared the obvious target as Coutinho collected possession by the halfway line but instead of going right he set Sturridge free with a perfectly weighted delivery through the middle that the striker duly converted for his first goal since 2 January. "But he has another week and being an option would be cool for us". I have a good relationship with the manager, and the fans have been brilliant.

They were up against a West Ham side who had effectively scuppered Tottenham Hotspur's Premier League title ambitions earlier this month.

"We didn't do it".

"We have to be honest about it". Ok, we were without a few players, but we were also without a few players against Spurs. We wanted to avoid that factor of complacency but obviously it was there, at least subconsciously. We showed what we are about today. "That's exactly what happened". I'm pretty sure they will want to enjoy football at Anfield and try everything to play good football - that makes life hard for us.
