The club have got their work cut out for them, to be sure.

2 points: (and this is still of course totally dependent on Everton qualifying!)

- They'll be getting a nice pile of cash from being in the competition, so right off the bat they'll have more money to play with. Maybe it will be enough to sign Lukaku.

- When negotiating with players who are considering several similar clubs the CL qualification could be a key deal-sweetener, giving them an advantage over teams like Spurs or even Arsenal.

However, like you point out wages could still be an issue because Everton can't count on being in the CL every season, at least not yet. And they are still 'poor' compared to Europe's biggest squads, so they don't have the money to bring in players of the highest quality (those going for 60-100million Euros these days, which is just insane money).

Hope so since that would boost my hopes that USA will get a result against them.

Daniel Sturridge might be available at the weekend. Though, with the Chelsea match coming up I would not be surprised if he starts on the bench, especially if the match goes well from the beginning.

Kroos's agent has ruled out an exit until 2015.

EDIT:...and so City and Everton drop points much to the delight of Arsenal, 'Pool and Mou. Me thinks that might be the title gone for City.

One more piece of evidence that Tony Pulis and Mourihno could conspire to destroy the concept of attractive attacking football this season. I don't see how Liverpool will beat both of them. And in Chelsea's case, I don;t see them dropping any points at all unless Atleti take them to penalties and wear them down.

Barca are currently losing the Copa del Rey final 1-0 to Real. Could be their last chance of silverware gone...

Had to check to make sure Messi was playing. Ineffectual would be an understatement. Fabregas and Neymar equally as anonymous. To be fair, I dunno why Tata has shifted him out wide.

EDIT: ...and GB11 decides it in impressive fashion. £85m investment already paying dividend. Barca have failed to win a trophy for the first time in...ever?

Liverpool don't have to beat both of them now, one win and one draw would be enough (assuming they beat Norwich and Newcastle).

Still, if Liverpool drop 3 points then its virtually game over. They've won 10 on the trot but can they win 14 or avoid losing 4.

Heart says yes, brain says this is football.

All i know is if Mou wins the league, i'll die a little inside.

Great goal by Gareth Bale, Hala Madrid!!, could be the first time since pep took over that Barça fail to win anything, 8 years it's been i think. and if the transfer ban sticks they'll be pretty screwed next season.

I think Liverpool has everything on their side to win it, But they still have Chelsea to play, a good finish for the league title.

Big win for Real.

Agreed. Hopefully the fact that Pulis has secured safety for Crystal Palace means they are already on the beach when Liverpool show up....
