Klopp: Bayern would not dominate Premier League

A freakish penalty "miss" by Leicester City's Riyad Mahrez at the Etihad Stadium allowed Manchester City to squeeze out a 2-1 victory that lifted them to third place, above Liverpool.

While Liverpool have yet to decide if they'll play the next season in the Champions League, Middlesbrough will play only for the historical records, with the relegation already confirmed.

A win enables us to target top quality players in the summer; the type of which will only come to a club in the Champions League. We've got 73 points and the chance to move on to 76.

"When you have a player like this in your team, to show the way we want to grow together, it is important and I think he has a lot of players behind him to keep him".

Fourth place: If Arsenal draws 1-1 with Everton and Liverpool loses 2-0 to Middlesbrough, both clubs would finish behind City with the same number of points and goal difference (+31).

As you can see from the table above, the three clubs are now separated by three points, a five-goal swing in goal difference and just one goal scored.

A point at Watford will guarantee a top-four place for Pep Guardiola's City, but they can secure third place - and, crucially, avoid the Champions League play-off round - if they win.

Hopefully they can win it one day because that is the competition we are looking for and this club is trying to win. City won 2-0 against Watford when the two sides played earlier in the season at the Etihad Stadium .

This year Arsenal must again rely on an upset to finish in the top four.

In the unlikely event of a Champions League play-off being required to separate both sides, these two results will need to happen.

Koscielny should be fit for the final league game of the campaign, a home match against Everton, as well as the FA Cup final against Chelsea on May 27.

In the mad world of football, Arsene Wenger is in contention to be the Premier League's manager of the month after leading Arsenal to wins over Manchester United, Southampton, Stoke and now Sunderland - when they scored 10 goals and conceded one.

But even with Liverpool in pole position, Klopp does not want his side's intensity to drop when they welcome already- relegated Boro next weekend.

With Arsenal in danger of missing Europe's top continental competition for the first time in two decades, the calls for Wenger to be replaced have grown louder among Gunners supporters.
