The Premier League rises again in this incredible Champions League season

Uefa have insisted that the current maximum of five teams from one country in the Champions League will be not be exceeded in any revamp.

Manchester City star Raheem Sterling revealed he was "buzzing" after former club Liverpool completed a stunning comeback to reach the Champions League final.

Klopp's men, with 94 points, have recovered from a mid-season stumble to record eight straight victories and are agonisingly close to their first English top-flight title since 1990.

Who was the first Premier League manager to be sacked this season?

"If the Reds win one or two trophies, they will receive a well-deserved heroes' welcome and we will put on a show to make the city proud".

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a hat-trick in the game while Alexandre Lacazette scored once to see the Gunners claim 4-2 win over their Spanish opposition. "It will be tough in Brighton". Plus they rarely travel to Fulham and get a result.

City are on course to retain the trophy but must beat Chris Hughton's men at the Amex Stadium to ensure there are no final day shocks. They played wonderful football in a lot of moments, they are hard to play, good defending, sensational counter-attacking, scoring in the right moments, staying calm and composed in important moments of a game. We were seven points behind but we never give up.

City can not quite match the record 100 points they mustered last season but they have shown their ability to dig deep in recent weeks.

The Gunners not only needed to win at fortress Anfield but do so by two clear goals.

A second consecutive title for the club, who remain on course for a historic domestic treble, would underline their status as the dominant force in the English game.

Merson has given his prediction ahead of the City's clash with Brighton and thinks that they will get the job done.

"In anything, as the dust settles we will look back and say it was a positive season".

Mohamed Salah is set to return to the Liverpool starting line-up after a concussion injury ruled him out of the Barcelona tie, but he confirmed Roberto Firmino will still be on the sidelines as he hinted he will be ready to return to for the Champions League final.

"Football fans everywhere live for the passion of occasions such as these semi-finals, and the two matches were marvellous advertisements for the calibre and appeal of the UEFA Champions League".

But despite their European adventure, the Anfield faithful are desperate to see their team at the top of the domestic tree again. "But I'd much rather be on our side, to know if we win the game, it's ours".

"We are open for a constructive dialogue to reform European football together with other stakeholders, but if this is the project on the table, then the margins for negotiations are very limited". Liverpool have lost one game in 37, it's a scenario that could leave Klopp's side one point short of the league championship.
