Liverpool guaranteed itself a place back in the Champions League next season by beating Brighton 4-0 at Anfield on Sunday.

"We have six days to prepare for the final of the FA Cup and we have to change".

Benitez said: "If we want to achieve something, we have to understand the way to do that".

Conte contradicted reports the Cup final will bring the curtain down on his two-year reign.

Champion Manchester City, which has broken the Premier League record for wins, points and goals this season, set another landmark by becoming the first side in English top flight history to reach 100 points as Gabriel Jesus struck a dramatic late victor to beat Southampton 1-0.

Speaking to talkSPORT the Spaniard claimed: "The way that he has been behaving and playing during the season, especially at the end of the season, I think he is a different kind of midfielder so I am sure he will be in consideration".

"I have said all along that I want to do things sooner rather than later".


Newcastle deservedly ended a run of four successive defeats under former Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez to earn a top-10 finish.

"To finish fifth is a big disappointment".

At the other end of the table, Swansea's seven-season stay in the Premier League came to an end as it joined West Brom and Stoke City in being relegated to the Championship.

Dwight Gayle scored the opening goal in the first half and Spanish striker Ayoze Perez added the second and third after the break.

Question marks also remain over the future of Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez, who is set for key talks with the club's owner Mike Ashley in the next week to discuss his potential summer transfer budget as he looks to build on an encouraging campaign.

"We have to sit down, talk and see where we are". The fans have ambitions, we have ambitions and we need to know if everyone has the same feeling. "We're still talking and we will see what happens".
