As things now stand, the league table looks like this and barring a remarkable Man City collapse in their last two games vs West Brom and Watford, it's looking like Wenger's golden streak of Champions League football will be coming to an end.

"This will be our biggest game of the season", he added. If we lose or draw we might miss out.

Arsenal fans could find comfort in an Ajax win over Manchester United in the Europa League final, but it's looking very likely that Thursday nights are going to become very different for anyone that supports the Gunners. It's about how we start the game and how concentrated we are.

"We have a big chance but we have to get a result. Now we have to do the same against Middlesbrough". Either way, though, Liverpool need a win.

Doing that would mean Champions League football next season, and with that would come raised hopes and expectations, increased activity in the summer transfer market, and a push to take Liverpool back to an even higher level-to a regular place in Europe's top competition and to competing for silverware.

It is still feasible that Liverpool could slip from third place and out of the Champions League positions all together, but with their fate in their own hands, it is hard to envisage anything less than a victory against a Middlesbrough side who have scored the least amount of goals {27} so far in the top flight this season.

"It would be a good step for next season for us to play against better teams in the Champions League".

Georginio Wijnaldum says qualifying for the Champions League can be the start of something big for Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp. "This is the beginning of something that can go much bigger".
