Struggling to get 4th...

Liverpool FC is not going to win the Barclays Premier League this year. That title will be decided between Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea. Liverpool are currently 5th in the table, behind Everton FC who are currently 4th after their 3-1 win against Portsmouth at Goodison Park last night.

Liverpool also won their match against Bolton at The Reebok yesterday with the same scoreline. Liverpool need to thank Bolton's goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen for the first goal. It was his mistake from Steven Gerrard's shot that gave Liverpool the lead.

Jaaskelainen's mistake that made it 1-0 to Liverpool

Gerrard a bit embarrassed to celebrate

Ryan Babel made it 2-0

Fabio Aurelio with the 3rd goal.

AC Milan will host Arsenal in the 2nd Leg of the knockout stage of the Champions League tomorrow. Both teams drew 0-0 at The Emirates in the 1st leg 2 weeks ago.

Manchester United will host Olympique Lyonnaise at Old Trafford. Man Utd has a slender advantage from a 1-1 draw in Lyon's Stade Gerland last fortnight.

Chelsea will host Olympiakos at Stamford bridge after a 0-0 draw in Greece.

Liverpool will play Internazionale FC next week since AC Milan will be playing against Arsenal tomorrow. Both AC Milan and Internazionale FC share the same stadium and since both of them played their 1st leg away from home, Inter's match will be a week later.

My prediction would be Arsenal to go through on away goals, Man Utd to win 2-1 and Chelsea to win 1-0.

Liverpool will travel to Milan next week with a 2-o home win advantage. The Italians are generally strong at home. Let's hope that Liverpool can at least get a draw in a week's time.
