Liverpool will not qualify for the Champions League if we finish fifth in the Premier League – despite some rumours circling Twitter.
In fact, there’s a chance now we could finish fourth and not make the competition next year, if Chelsea and Arsenal missed the top four but won the Champions League and Europa League respectively, this.
The Anfield Talk explains it, neatly:

That would be the rather sour tasting cherry on the top of a pretty miserable season, wouldn’t it?!
Finishing fourth, then being denied the Champions League anyway!
Oh well – what will be will be. Hopefully Mo Salah can rack up a few more goals and get himself another Golden Boot – and we’d like to see Nat Phillips get a goal and Ben Davies make an appearance.
Top four is not an impossibility, but we just can’t see how a side as good as Chelsea under Thomas Tuchel will now mess it up.
