39th EPL match between Arsenal & Liverpool could be on

If Liverpool were to embody the spirit of Steven Gerrard and have a massive slip (apologies) either against West Ham or the mighty Middlesbrough, while Arsenal win against Stoke City, Everton and Sunderland, the Gunners will take fourth spot.

"All the teams have to play tough games and no one wins all of them".

It's some turnaround from a month ago, when Arsenal lost at Crystal Palace 3-0 and Wenger's future was looking bleak amid strong criticism from a section of fans.

Should the matter remain unresolved this weekend, Swansea will still fancy their chances of staying up going into the final game of the season as they host West Brom and Hull host Tottenham.

Fifth-placed Arsenal are also challenging for a top-four finish and lie four points behind Liverpool, also with a game in hand. Hull have yet to win away under Silva, though, losing eight of their nine matches in all competitions, with the recent goalless draw at Southampton the only point picked up during that sequence.

The Red Devils are joined by Arsenal, Man City and Liverpool in fighting for the two Champions League qualification places behind Chelsea and Tottenham.

However, Arsene Wenger's record at Stoke does not make for good reading.

Liverpool have never won the Premier League, and the last time they lifted the First Division trophy was under Kenny Dalglish in the 1989/90 campaign. "The best players are in England, so it's the most exciting league and that's why I'm here".

Ahead of his side's semi-final second-leg against Celta Vigo, Mourinho said he would much prefer to do it that way anyway.

Should Arsenal gain the final Champions League spot, it would mark a colossal turn around in fortunes for the side from north London.

Maguire, a £2.5m signing from Sheffield United in 2014, has been a real revelation for Hull particularly this season with his defensive solidity and quality on the ball in terms of building out from the back.
