Liverpool seal Champions League qualification with final day victory

Liverpool beat Crystal Palace 2-0 at Anfield on the final day of the Premier League season to secure a third-placed finish for The Reds.

Jürgen Klopp’s Mighty Redmen made it five wins in a row and 26 points from their last 30 to secure Champions League qualification. A Sadio Mané double – one goal in each half – was enough to see off Crystal Palace.

Speaking after the game, Klopp revealed that young centre-back Rhys Williams had played despite not taking part in training over the last three days due to a hamstring issue.

When interviewed for BEIN Sports, the Liverpool manager revealed that Gini Wijnaldum was indeed leaving the club:

“He came as a top top top player, he is leaving as a world class player and a Liverpool legend. He is an outstanding footballer and much better person.”

Liverpool will play in next season’s Champions League. Wijnaldum will not be here, unfortunately, but we, of course, wish Gini all the best. He is a model professional and never gave less than his absolute best for the club in all the time he has been here.

A job well done from Klopp and Liverpool means we can, once again, look forward to taking part in Europe’s premier club competition next season.

Thanks for another fantastic season, Reds!!
