GOOD MORNING FOOTBALL FANS
Liverpool overtook Leicester in fourth place after beating Burnley 3-0 at Turf Moor, which means that victory against Crystal Palace on Sunday in the last match of the season will see them playing in the Champions League next season.
Roberto Firmino opened the scoring just two minutes before half-time with a neat finish.
Nat Phillips doubled the visitors’ lead after 52 minutes whereas Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain sealed victory two minutes before full-time.
Arsenal, on the other hand, kept their Europa Conference League qualification hopes alive following a dramatic 3-1 win over Palace at Selhurst Park.
Nicolas Pepe opened the scoring five minutes before half-time with a fine finish and Christian Benteke equalised in the second half.
It looked like the Gunners were going to drop even more Premier League points, but Gabriel Martinelli put them back ahead in the first minute of stoppage time before Pepe sealed the win for the visitors soon after.
Meanwhile, SunSport can exclusively report that Chelsea are set to launch an £80million bid for Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho in what could spark an intense bidding war with Manchester United.
Blues manager Thomas Tuchel is a major admirer of Sancho, who has stood out in the Bundesliga this season.
The 21-year-old England international appears set to leave Dortmund and join the Premier League at the end of the season.
Chelsea and United are also set for a transfer battle with Manchester City, who are planning to hold talks with Tottenham over star striker Harry Kane.
According to The Guardian, City are indeed keen on landing Kane as they are seeking for someone to replace the departing Sergio Aguero in the summer.
However, the Citizens are aware that chairman Daniel Levy doesn’t want to sell the star striker and has proven to be a tough negotiator in the past.
The England international, however, is open to moving to the Etihad at the end of the season.
Meanwhile, the Daily Mail report there has been acceptance throughout Tottenham in recent weeks that Kane will leave at the end of the season.
And Spurs would be willing to swap the 27-year-old with City star Gabriel Jesus or United ace Anthony Martial.
