Petr Cech sends warning to Liverpool about Arsenal

Whereas Arsenal have 66 points and a game in hand, meaning 75 points is their ceiling.

"Obviously every footballer wants to be playing in the Premier League, myself included".

The Reds have impressed against teams in the upper echelons of the Premier League this season but have dropped points against those in the bottom half of the table, costing them the chance to challenge Tottenham Hotspur and champions Chelsea for the title.

The Tigers slipped into the relegation zone with two games to play following a 2-0 defeat by Sunderland last Saturday.

Three points are all that matter at this stage of the campaign but Georginio Wijnaldum has again turned a focus towards Liverpool stepping up their displays on the pitch following disappointing results recently at home to Crystal Palace and Southampton. Arsene Wenger, a target of abuse for much of the season, was even greeted with rapturous applause as he walked toward the fans.

As things stand, Liverpool have 70 points from 36 games, which means the highest number of points they could finis on is 76.

'All I can do is my best. 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.

Manchester United carries a 1-0 lead into Thursday's Europa League semifinal second-leg game against Celta Vigo.

"I've seen that happen before (but) a long time ago".
