Liverpool v Middlesbrough

Liverpool are hopeful forward Roberto Firmino will be fit to play on Sunday despite a muscle problem.

If he is unavailable then the Reds could deploy the same starting line-up which began the 4-0 win at West Ham.

Jurgen Klopp's side need a win to guarantee qualification for next season's Champions League.

Middlesbrough head coach Steve Agnew may again be without Daniel Ayala, Gaston Ramirez and Victor Valdes because of injury.

*Liverpool's last home defeat against Middlesbrough was in March 1976, when Jack Charlton's team won 2-0 with goals from Terry Cooper and John Hickton.
*The Reds have won each of their last four Premier League contests against Middlesbrough at Anfield, scoring at least two goals on each occasion.
*Boro's only victory in the last 11 league and cup meetings was 2-0 at the Riverside in February 2009.

*They can finish in the top four of the Premier League for only the second time in the last eight seasons.
*The Reds already have 73 points - no team has ever finished outside the Premier League top four with a total that high.
*Their last seven league games have produced no home wins (D2, L1) but four consecutive away victories.
*Liverpool have won eight of their last 10 home games on the final day of the Premier League season, drawing the other two.
*Jurgen Klopp's side are unbeaten in 12 league games against top-seven sides this season (W7, D5), averaging 2.17 points per game, but have lost six times against the rest of the division, averaging 1.81 points per game (W14, D5, L6).
*Philippe Coutinho has six goals and two assists in his last eight appearances for Liverpool.
*Adam Lallana has not scored or set up a Premier League goal in 13 appearances in 2017 - despite seven goals and seven assists in 17 matches before the turn of the year.

*Boro won their first away game this season, at Sunderland on 21 August, but are winless in their subsequent 17 top-flight games (D7, L10) on the road, losing six of the last seven.
*They have just one win in their last 20 Premier League games, losing 12 of those matches.
*Steve Agnew's side are the division's lowest scorers with 27 goals and have attempted the fewest shots (342) and registered the fewest shots on target (97).
*They have failed to score in seven of their eight away league games this calendar year.
*Boro will end the season with their lowest total of Premier League wins - they have five victories, with their previous lowest figure being seven in 2008-09.

If you were a TV channel and you wanted to maximise views from both fans and neutrals, what game would you display?

The one here chose Liverpool vs Boro, they might have got it right for once.

Liverpool bottling it would be funny
But then arsenal would get fourth and that wouldn't be funny.

Although ty would rejoice and talk about how amazing the season was. The might anger Claude to finally punch him and call him a nigger
