Philippe Coutinho downplays speculation linking him with move away from Liverpool

On Sunday, the Merseyside club secured their place in next season's edition of the UEFA Champions League with their 3-0 win over Middlesbrough, and after the game Coutinho spoke about the media talk around his Liverpool future.

Despite winning the overall award, Conte was also named the Premier League Manager of the Year.

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech insists missing one year of the Champions League is not a problem but says the club must keep their star players if they want to return.

Elsewhere, there will be a coaching change at Watford and could be one at Southampton, though not necessarily at Arsenal, where it appears that Arsene Wenger could confirm his new two-year deal after next week's FA Cup final.

Latest media reports have indicated that Wenger will sign a new contract whatever the result at Wembley Stadium, in the face of disillusionment with his stewardship by many Arsenal fans.

"It's flattering that a club like Barcelona can be interested in you", he said.

Philippe Coutinho downplays speculation linking him with move away from Liverpool

Brilliant strikes from Georginio Wijnaldum, Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana guaranteed a place in next season's qualification play-off as Klopp's men overcame some early nerves to show their class on the last day of the season.

Cech believes Arsenal can follow Chelsea's lead and bounce straight back into the Champions League - but only if the squad is kept together.

Liverpool will need to win a two-legged playoff in August to play in the Champions League for only the second time in eight seasons, since American-run Fenway Sports Group bought the club in 2010.

At Stamford Bridge, John Terry played his last match for Chelsea, who received the Premier League trophy after beating Sunderland 5-1. Alexis has been brilliant, scoring a lot of goals.

Already guaranteed to finish second, Tottenham scored twice in the first 13 minutes through Kane and added further goals through Dele Alli and Victor Wanyama.

Sixth-placed Manchester United beat Crystal Palace 2-0 after resting several players ahead of Wednesday's Europa League final against Ajax Amsterdam in Stockholm.
