- Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah stated that missing out on the Champions League next season is unacceptable and there is no justification for the club’s failure to qualify after Manchester United defeated Chelsea to secure a top-four finish. After champions Manchester City and runners-up Arsenal, the Reds will be without Champions League football for the first time since the 2016-17 season, as Newcastle United beat them to a top-four spot. Salah has featured in three Champions League finals for Liverpool since joining in 2017 and claimed the club had let themselves down by reaching only the Europa League. Klopp’s men were last year’s finalists, and Salah stated the club had “everything” they needed to qualify this season. After United’s 4-1 victory over Chelsea, which confirmed their fifth-place finish, the Egyptian took to Twitter to express his sadness, saying: “I’m completely devastated. There is no justification for this. We had everything we required to qualify for next year’s Champions League, but we failed. It’s the bare minimum for us, qualifying for the tournament. I’m sorry, but it’s too early for an optimistic or positive post. We’ve disappointed you and ourselves.” Liverpool won nine straight games to keep their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League alive, but a 1-1 draw against Aston Villa at Anfield on Saturday meant United required only one point from their last two games against Chelsea and Fulham. Klopp stated that his team had not performed well enough this season to qualify for the Champions League.
