Liverpool will know a lot more about their chances of finishing in the top four of the Premier League following fixtures for two of their rivals on Saturday.
The Reds are currently in third but their spot in the Champions League qualification spots is under threat with both Manchester City and Arsenal breathing down their necks, which isn’t helped by the fact that they have taken just four points from the last nine available.
The former are just one point behind Jurgen Klopp’s side and host Leicester City at the Etihad at lunchtime, while the Gunners are four points adrift – but with a game in hand – as they face Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday evening.
The Merseyside outfit could be under increasing pressure ahead of their trip to West Ham United on Sunday if both win, and Liverpool supporters are praying that both the Foxes and the Potters can do them a favour.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
