Jurgen Klopp is confident Roberto Firmino will be fit to play in Liverpool's huge encounter with Middlesbrough on Sunday.
Liverpool have competed in the Champions League only once in the last seven seasons and that experience was a miserable one under Brendan Rodgers when they did not make it past the group stages.
Liverpool missed out on European football entirely last season after suffering defeat to Sevilla in the final of the Europa League and Klopp is happy with the simplicity of the equation facing his side.
The Gunners need a win while hoping either Liverpool or Manchester City drop points to ensure they finish in the top four and Wenger said: "What is most important for me is to do the job well and finish the season as strongly as we can". Middlesbrough will finish the season in 19th and must start to prepare for Championship football again next season. You can earn a lot of money there, that's money we didn't have previous year - but we are already in a good position.More news: Cummings tells Chaffetz to demand WH docs on Trump, Russia's Comey conversation
"I told him when I leave, or the club sack me, I don't care of course who'll be my successor, but I'd love that he'd be it", he said. If start is not good that doesn't mean we will stop.
Liverpool have the chance to guarantee qualification to the Champions League next season with a win over already relegated Middlesborough at Anfield in the final game of the Premier League campaign. Jürgen Klopp had marshalled the Reds with unprecedented efficiency, with the club having lost just two games in the first half of the season.
In an interview with The Times of London at Anfield on Thursday, Klopp spoke about his "privilege" in overseeing Liverpool's footballing fortunes, and his sense of responsibility for his legacy.
With so many permutations on scores, it's impossible to predict whether the play off scenario will actually occur, but the very real prospect will keep the fans of all three teams on the edge of their seats on Sunday afternoon.More news: Europa League would cap an 'amazing' Manchester United season, Mkhitaryan claims
"Plan A player says, 'aaah, sounds all good but.', plan B you are not sure and plan C you have to decide when A and B are not there".
"It's all clear. We have to perform, we have to win and if we have enough points after this matchday then we deserve to go to the Champions League".
Arsenal vs Everton at the Emirates. Alexis Sanchez's efforts invariably tend to be fervent but the Chilean has been like a man possessed in recent weeks, shrugging off injuries to take his personal haul to 23 goals and 10 assists in the Premier League alone. They have seen our way and they have seen our football. Obviously I knew at the time it was a huge challenge and there has been a hell of a lot to deal with, but it's been enjoyable.More news: New horses among Preakness challenges facing Always Dreaming
