#Liverpool and #Arsenal will battle it out for the last UEFA #Champions League spot on the last day of the season as both teams need to win their respected games. Liverpool is playing Middlesbrough at Anfield and Arsenal is playing Everton at the Emirates Stadium.

Liverpool is currently just one point ahead of Arsenal going into the last game and a win for Liverpool will guarantee qualification the Champions League as they will finish fourth in the English Premier League.

Liverpool struggle on the final day

Liverpool doesn't exactly have the best of records when it comes to winning on the final day of the season. The last time they managed to win the last game of the season was back in the 2013-2014 season when they won 2-1 against Newcastle.

The reds have also had some problems winning at Anfield. They haven't won at their home ground since April 2 when they won 3-1 against city rivals Everton.

Liverpool is expected to win against Middlesbrough and shouldn't have any problems doing so. The two teams met back in December and Liverpool won comfortably 3-0. Anything less than a win for the reds will be a disappointment to not only the club but also the fans.

Arsenal never seem to lose on the final day

It seems like Arsenal doesn't feel any pressure when it comes to playing the last game of the season. They haven't lost the last game of the season for 12 years when they lost 2-1 to Birmingham City back in the 2004-2005 season. The gunners have also only drawn two games on the final day since that loss back in 2005 and the most recent draw was in the 2010-2011 season when they drew 2-2 with Fulham.

Arsenal will have to be at their best this weekend if they want to beat Everton as the last time the two teams played, Everton won 2-1 back in December thanks to a late winner from defender Ashley Williams.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has never missed out on qualifying for the Champions League since he has been in charge of the gunners. Wenger has been in charge for over 20 years so I don't think he has any intention of missing out now. If Arsenal fails to qualify then the fans will certainly voice their opinion and some players may choose to leave the club.

Who will qualify?

It's fair to say Liverpool has the easier game out of the two but will the pressure knowing they need to win to qualify for the Champions League get the better of them? Will Arsenal miss out on the Champions League for the first time in over 20 years?

These questions will be answered on May 21 when the final games of the season will be played.
