Liverpool still has a group stage game against Belgian side Union SG to come, but Jürgen Klopp's men have now been confirmed as group winners. The 4-0 win over LASK, coupled with a goalless draw for Toulouse, ensured that the Reds hold an unassailable position heading into the final round of fixtures.

As a result, Klopp does not need to worry about Europe again until March, earning a bye through the extra play-off round — where drop-outs from the Champions League first enter the competition. As such, there was much to be satisfied about, although the Liverpool boss still had one major complaint from the evening's action.

Away from the pitch, there are significant developments concerning Manchester City. It completed the treble last season with 115 Premier League charges hanging over its head, and a date has now been tentatively agreed for an independent panel to hear the case. The club has always denied the allegations.

Naturally, Liverpool will be watching those developments closely, as will just about every Premier League club — and indeed football fan. Here are the latest stories that you can't afford to miss.

Date set for Man City hearing

As is well known by now, Manchester City has been charged with numerous breaches of Premier League rules, the vast majority of which relate to financial affairs — colloquially bundled under the 'Financial Fair Play' (FFP) label. Those charges were brought in February of this year, after a years-long investigation.

It quickly became clear that a resolution would not be swift. However, there has now been a degree of progress, with the Daily Mail reporting that Manchester City and the Premier League have agreed that the independent panel will sit next autumn. In theory, a verdict from that could be expected the following summer, in 2025.

But that could still face delays, and then there's the prospect of an appeal — although going to CAS is at least off the table, with Premier League regulations setting out an exhaustive process for challenging a decision. All in all, an outcome one way or the other is edging closer, albeit at an excruciating pace.

Liverpool will be watching this especially closely. Read the full story here.

Jürgen Klopp fumes at Liverpool vs LASK decision

It was an undoubtedly positive night for Klopp, as his players were confirmed not only as qualifiers but also winners of their Europa League group. But it was not an entirely relaxed evening on the sidelines for the Liverpool boss.

One call in particular incensed Klopp. Liverpool allowed LASK a number of fast breaks, but there was a clear offside in the build-up to one of them as the game entered its closing stages. Nevertheless, the officials made the decision to let the move play out.

That left Liverpool frantically chasing back, and only luck meant that a collision between a sliding Kostas Tsimikas and advancing Caoimhín Kelleher was not nasty. According to the TNT Sports commentators, Klopp slammed the decision to play on as 'dangerous', giving the fourth official a piece of his mind.

Kelleher is expected to play the next few games, after Alisson sustained an injury against Manchester City. This would have been a hugely frustrating way for the number two keeper to pick up a freak setback too. Read the full story from James Martin by clicking here.
