Liverpool need just a point to stay in the Champions League next year, but a couple more than that would be a nice way to end the season.

LIVERPOOL VS BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION

| Sunday, May 13th |
Premier League | Anfield
5:30PM GMT/12:30PM EST

In true Liverpool fashion, despite every clear effort to be better this year, the Reds are in a do or die position to finish in the coveted top four tier of the league. While they did well to maintain a spot throughout the season, a couple of draws and a loss towards the end did enough to trip up our efforts. Thankfully, Brighton have already secured their position in the Premier League for next season, so the hopes are that they won’t be trying too hard to trip us up. Liverpool only need one point to secure Champions League football next year, thanks also to Spurs and Chelsea slip ups, so this might even be an easy afternoon for all involved - despite the assertion that it’s the “first final” that they participate in before the big show in Kiev.
