Sun 05 May 2024 | 07:22 PM

Liverpool officially qualified for next season's UEFA Champions League, following Aston Villa's 1-0 loss to Brighton at Falmer Stadium on Sunday. This result came during the 36th round of the 2023-24 Premier League season, marking Liverpool's return to Europe's top football competition after a year in the Europa League.

Brighton secured their victory over Aston Villa with a goal from Pedro Gonzalez, halting Villa’s points tally at 67, in fourth place behind Liverpool. With only two matches left this season, Aston Villa can reach a maximum of 73 points, leaving their Champions League hopes hanging by a thread as they vie with Tottenham for the final qualifying spot.

Aston Villa currently holds fourth place in the Premier League standings with 67 points from 20 wins, 7 draws, and 9 losses, having scored 73 goals and conceded 53. Meanwhile, Brighton is in the eleventh spot, accumulating 47 points from 12 wins, 12 losses, and 11 draws, with a goal tally of 53 for and 57 against.

Liverpool sits third in the league with 75 points. Their recent form shows a slight dip, with only one win in the last five league games, alongside two draws and two defeats, leaving them five points behind the league leader with just three matches remaining.

As Liverpool looks to redeem itself following a 2-1 loss to Tottenham in their last match, they aim to restore smiles to their supporters' faces after a series of underwhelming results in recent competitions.
