After Arsenal thrashed Stoke City 4-1 yesterday to close within a point of Liverpool, today’s task is simple: beat West Ham United. If Liverpool fail to win today, qualifying for next season’s Champions League qualifiers would be almost impossible considering how strongly Arsenal are finishing the season.
Both Liverpool and West Ham United are missing players, but Slaven Bilić and Jürgen Klopp have enough experience to put out competitive sides. Simply put, Liverpool must find a way to take all three points today. Nothing else matters.
