Liverpool booked their place in next season’s UEFA Champions League on Sunday, with a comprehensive win over Middlesbrough at Anfield.
With Arsenal winning their home match against Everton, the pressure was on Jurgen Klopp’s men to find one last scintillating performance in the Premier League this season.
There were worried faces at Anfield for most of the first half, with the scores locked at 0-0 the Reds were on their way to disappointment.
However a Georginio Wijnaldum effort just before half-time eased fears of a disastrous day and Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana goals sealed the deal after the break.
Liverpool of course have a long, famous history with Europe’s premier club competition and fans believe they are back where they belong on the big stage. It’s been a rollercoaster of a season for Klopp and his side but they can no build towards the future with confidence.
Fans were of course delighted and took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…

Cast your mind back to the 1st game of the season and you realise how important it was that #lfc didn't concede an equaliser to Arsenal!
