What a Champions League trophy would mean to each of the semifinal teams

  What a Champions League trophy would mean to each of the semifinal teams The UEFA Champions League semifinal is set to begin and no one could have predicted the four teams still in the running for the trophy. Every year, the team who wins the Champions League each year vaults to the top to be remembered in history as one of the best teams ever. The beauty of the Champions League is that it’s so difficult that the winner, regardless of where they finish in their domestic league, will have earned their medal.

While both Chelsea and Tottenham have two games remaining, Liverpool only has one game left and could be relying on its superior goal difference to secure a place in the Champions League — unless Liverpool beats Real Madrid in the May 26 European final. Whoever finishes fifth will have to settle

  Liverpool fan fighting for his life after assault by Roma fans A Liverpool fan was fighting for his life on Wednesday after suffering a serious head injury in a "vile" assault by Roma fans before the club's Champions League semi-final first-leg clash with the Italian club. The man is being treated for his injuries at a neurological centre, where his condition is described as critical, Merseyside Police said.

CHELSEA look like dead-certs to beat Liverpool in Saturday's huge Premier League game thanks to the Champions League . In the past five seasons, the Reds have won just 30 per cent of games immediately after turning out in Europe's top competition.

A resurgent Chelsea sealed a fifth successive victory when Olivier Giroud scored the only goal against Liverpool, which has only one win in five league games.

It's an impressive turnaround for Chelsea, which has cut the gap to fourth-place Tottenham from 10 to two points in a month.

The 1-0 win over Liverpool sent Chelsea within three points of Juergen Klopp's side, which has neglected its domestic responsibilities while qualifying for a first Champions League final in 11 years.

While both Chelsea and Tottenham have two games remaining, Liverpool only has one game left and could be relying on its superior goal difference to secure a place in the Champions League — unless Liverpool beats Real Madrid in the May 26 European final.

The Gunners beat Chelsea 2-0 at the Emirates on Saturday. Chelsea remain in pole position for a return to Champions League football next season in fourth, but are now just three points ahead of Arsenal and a surging Liverpool overcome another obstacle with anarchic win over Crystal Palace.

Whoever finishes fifth will have to settle for a spot in the Europa League alongside Arsenal and Burnley, who met on Sunday in Arsene Wenger's final home match in charge of the London club. It was a fitting send-off from the Emirates Stadium for Wenger, with Arsenal demolishing Burnley 5-0.

Wenger is leaving Arsenal after 22 years, having failed to win the Premier League since 2004.

Man City, which sealed the title three weeks ago, received the trophy for the third time in six years on Sunday but couldn't produce a performance befitting title celebrations after being held 0-0 by Huddersfield.

The games on Sunday took place against the backdrop of an outpouring of concern for the health of former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson, who had emergency surgery on Saturday for a brain hemorrhage.
