Liverpool's final two games: Slim margins between success and regret

Mo Salah helped Liverpool see off Brighton

Over at Anfield, Liverpool's Egyptian superstar, Mohamed Salah ended his season at Liverpool with two Guinness World Records titles of his own: Most goals by a football (soccer) player in an English Premier League season (38 games) and Most English Premier League football (soccer) matches scored in by an individual during a season (38 game)*. "Imagine everyone telling you how brilliant you are, or they give you an Oscar for this, an award for that, an award for getting out of auto without having an accident".

"He is really hard to defend", Klopp said, "but he is young enough to improve".

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp revealed he will take his players on an overseas break ahead of the Champions League final against Real Madrid in Kiev.

Premier League Golden Boot victor Mo Salah will be looking to prove he belongs on the big stage alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, who is within touching distance of a fifth career Champions League final win that would take him above Lionel Messi's four trophies with Barcelona.

"Perfect", Klopp said. "That is for us like a little preseason".

'That's really good news for all of us and him as well.

"City have been wonderful this season, they thoroughly deserve it but next year we want to be closer to them and who knows, we could win it".

Angel Rangel and Leon Britten both said their farewells after distinguished careers for Swansea and there was more emotion at Huddersfield where Arsenal manager Wenger signed off after overseeing his 1,235th game. "When we score a goal it's because we are all doing good, when we concede it means we all need to work harder". "And then he has two weeks to prepare for our biggest game so far, that's for sure".

"We have a squad that compares with every team in the world - we have shown that in the Champions League".

James Milner did not feature but Klopp said the midfielder would be back in three to four days and would be fit to play against Madrid. "He has done awesome this year and he looks like a great player and we'll see if we can both continue it next season".

Dejan Lovren added a second before Dominic Solanke and Andy Robertson registered their first goals for the club in the 4-0 win.

That's one interpretation of Mauricio Pochettino's post-game press conference following Tottenham Hotspur's season-ending 5-4 victory over Leicester City on Sunday, during which Pochettino all but laid responsibility for the next step in the club's progression at the feet of chairman Daniel Levy.

Salah was substituted in the 84th minute and was given a standing ovation from Liverpool fans, and even some Brighton supporters.
