Be regulars in Champs League, urges Klopp

The Gunners beat Everton 3-1 in their final Premier League game of the season on Sunday, but it wasn't enough to prevent them finishing in fifth, following Liverpool's 3-0 win over Middlesbrough.

Jurgen Klopp hasn't been able to trust the Englishman to stay match-fit, which has restricted the striker's chances this season.

While his 2016-17 was interrupted by injury, Coutinho finished the campaign with 13 goals and seven assists to his name and looks forward to replicating these antics as Liverpool return to Europe's showcase tournament.

Although Wenger won the Premier League title in 2002 and again in 2004 - when Arsenal went through the entire season unbeaten - the club has underperformed in recent seasons.

You want to be there.

The Dutchman's brilliant first touch meant that all he had to do was blast the ball past Brad Guzan and soak up the adoration of the celebrating Liverpool supporters.

He netted 14 times across all competitions for the Reds this season, with a personal best 13 of those efforts coming in Premier League fixtures. "We have to see", the German told reporters.

"I think we are getting left behind a little bit by two or three clubs that are now ahead financially and they are spending money and things need to change at Arsenal".

Despite the obvious improvement Liverpool are yet to win a trophy under Klopp, and it's now five years since they last lifted a trophy.

Asked about missing out on the Champions' League, Wenger said last night: "It is disappointing because it's our minimum target".

"It's been a rollercoaster of a season, difficult, in the sense that we didn't manage to achieve our objective", Giroud said.

Wenger is furious that he did not receive more public backing during the hard campaign and thinks the top brass at the club should have put an end to uncertainty around his future.

"For me, it's as simple as that - we are not attracting big players anymore".
