At the end of an exhausting league campaign, Liverpool are still in need of at least a point from the final game of this season, if they are to qualify for the Champions League next season.

"They need a point from the game and I'm expecting a very strong side - the Champions League final is in a few weeks and they still need a result", said Hughton, whose team lost 3-1 at champions Manchester City in midweek.

He explained: "I think we've got a really good chance".

Like every one of us, he's also nearly certainly triple-captained himself at some point during the season.

"If someone said to me before we started that on the last day of the season you will have it in your own hands, I would have said "okay, I will take that". If you want to be successful you have to play the last game of the season.

I think the only difference is that we've embarked on a season where Man City have been that good.

When you're missing 100 extra shield points to carry from fight to fight, and players are focusing on you, that's a big deal. For a limited time, The Avengers' greatest foe, Thanos is terrorizing Fortnite Battle Royal players in an epic crossover.

With the final match of the season approaching, and the transfer window soon to open, it looks increasingly likely midfielder Emre Can may have played his last game for the club.

"So I am not Gareth Southgate, but if he needs a good player who can play right full-back - and maybe another position as well - then I think he would be a good choice", said the German.

Mohamed Salah has refused to give up on the target of breaking Ian Rush's Liverpool record for the most goals scored in a single season. There is a sense that he is one player who could do with a break, but there is little sign of him getting one, as he prepares to join up with his worldwide squad for the World Cup shortly after the Champions League final.

The Liverpool faithful had to try and carry their tiring side over the line in the second half as City pressed relentlessly for an away goal that would get them back in the tie. He stated: "I was here like four years ago and a lot of people said he couldn't [have] success, that I cannot play in the Premier League, [that] it was very hard for him", Salah said. "I had two great seasons in Rome and everyone was telling me "no, don't come back" but it was always in my mind that I have to come back to prove them wrong".

Brighton & Hove Albion travel to Anfield this weekend to face one of the 2017/18 Champions League finalists in a game that means absolutely nothing to them, other than pride, as they're seven points clear of the drop.
