Liverpool leave for Australia on Champions League high

23 May 2017, 11:17 | Kristine Mills

Blues boss Antonio Conte paid a fitting tribute to Terry, taking him off in the 26th minute - matching his shirt number - and Chelsea's players formed a guard of honour as he walked off to a standing ovation by the capacity crowd.

Everton playmaker Ross Barkley, who is stalling over a new contract, came off the bench to replace Tom Davies as part of a 26th-minute reshuffle by visiting manager Ronald Koeman.

Even though he lifted the 15th trophy of his Blues career, Terry described the day as "one of the most hard days of my life".

"I don't understand what you want to hear from me but my situation will be sorted out soon", Wenger said. I can not give you the answer today. I will give you an answer one day.

"I'm a lot more resigned because it's been coming for a few years and everybody has to focus on the FA Cup", former Arsenal striker Ian Wright told BBC Radio 5 live.

The top English clubs ended their EPL campaign Sunday with majority registering convincing win.

Liverpool secured Champions League football next season with a 3-0 win over Middlesbrough on Sunday, and Coutinho was proud of the way they reacted to a run of one win in seven top-flight outings at the start of 2017.

Liverpool had little time to celebrate the return of Champions League football to Anfield before the squad departed for Australia on Monday to play in a post-season friendly linked to the club's 125th anniversary.

"I am not saying we are already in, qualification is qualification, I am already looking forward to it". "Some (reasons), obviously that you know about, and that is very hard for the group of players to cope with that".

"It's very hard for a group of players to cope with that, and then there are some other reasons we will talk about on another day. It's not necessarily about you as a player, you have to fit in as well with the group".

"They only missed out very marginally [on the top four] and I think Arsene Wenger not signing his contract created uncertainty".

He has, however, indicated that his future will be discussed at a club board meeting after the FA Cup Final.

It might not make up for missing out on the league for a second year running, but at least Harry Kane will have a personal accolade to ease the hurt.

This second goal was scored by Philippe Coutinho from a direct free-kick, his third goal of this type this season.
