Liverpool to set new Anfield attendance record with sell-out against Middlesbrough

As reported by the Liverpool Echo Jurgen Klopp's side could set a new record before kick-off if Anfield is, as expected, a sell-out crowd for the match. The champion's midweek win over Watford was their fifth in a row and there remains a seven-point gap at the top.

Despite picking up a clean sheet in the last home match against Southampton, Liverpool have struggled to shut teams out at Anfield this season.

The Reds have their Champions League qualification in their own hands after beating West Ham last Sunday.

When asked about the interest from Anfield, Draxler said: "It's not about Jurgen Klopp, about Liverpool or about different clubs from England".

Gibson has identified a series of potential targets - former Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs is understood not to be among them - after revealing in a radio interview that he wants to "smash" the Championship next season.


Yet, the 32-year-old's previous outings this term suggest otherwise; he's awarded nearly one penalty every two matches this season - the highest average in the Premier League - and Arsenal have been amongst the biggest victims, with Oliver awarding three against them from five games.

'It is important for players because that is what they want to play but it is the progress and development and positive perspective of a club is important for players and we are powerful in a lot of parts of the game and we will be successful in the future but for this we need the players, of course.

With half of Chelsea's game away to Arsenal in September gone, Conte switched to his 3-4-3 formation, which he would persist with for the rest of the season - and which others would try to imitate as well.

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp on Friday summed up Sunday's important final Premier League game against relegated Middlesbrough.

That said, a side with Liverpool's status and prestige would have been more than capable of signing players to improve squad depth and failure to add any names proved, frankly, idiotic. "Liverpool need to win, and I know speaking to the players everyone's looking forward to it".


Should Liverpool finish fourth, they will face a Champions League qualifier and are likely to be unseeded, which means they will have to travel to Spain, Italy, Germany or France. We are a much better team even now from the start of the season. Having lost our place in the Premier League is the biggest disappointment, and that's something that's been very hard to accept.

Boro will go into the match with absolutely nothing to lose and they'll want to give their fans the flawless sendoff before saying farewell to Premier League football.

"It was just my opinion that I am the best player for PSG at the moment - so that's what I decided".

Klopp took charge in October 2015 and has made just two big money purchases so far, paying a reported 34 million pounds ($44 million) for Sadio Mane and 25 million pounds for Georginio Wijnaldum, but plans for next season are already underway.

A final day win at home may not be enough to secure Champions League football for next season.
