Salah talks historical CL comeback, final Premier League game

Salah talks historical CL comeback, final Premier League game”

And so, while overcoming a 3-0 defeat against the mighty Barcelona was a daunting prospect, the fate was still in Liverpool's own hands.

Wow. What an atmosphere, right?

If Manchester City beat Brighton at the Amex Stadium today they'll be crowned League Champions despite Liverpool's heroic effort to win their first title in 29 years.

Liverpool, however, deserved their place in the final on June 1 and captain Jordan Henderson - who will become on the fourth man in history to lead an English club to two consecutive European Cup finals - revealed how Jurgen Klopp's team never panicked as they tried to defy the odds.

He said: "Everybody looked at me when I said it was not such a good idea".

Barcelona a year ago in the playoffs of the Champions League have lost the advantage of three goals, losing 0:3 Roma in the return match of the 1/4 finals.

"And now I think of Klopp because if you are able to gain 97 points in the Premier League without winning, it's really very hard".

"The job is to develop as far and as high as possible so it gets more and more likely that you win silverware and that's what we've done so far".

Last season's runners-up Liverpool overturned a 3-0 first-leg deficit to reach the final with an incredible 4-0 win against Barcelona at Anfield on Tuesday. "If we don't learn to deal with players better, it's the only chance to kill this wonderful game". Alisson excelled against Barcelona - "He saved our lives then", Klopp said - and the £67m buy was the world's most expensive goalkeeper before losing that tag to Kepa Arrizabalaga four weeks later.

"When Madrid are knocked out [of the Champions League], it's like: 'Hey, they haven't won the league in so many years, ' but nobody talks about that".

"When we face each other, it's not 20 points, it's about a moment here or there, but consistency has made the difference points-wise".

And keeping this in mind, some people have started comparing the two London clubs with Liverpool.

"We had to pay a lot of money for a goalkeeper but then Chelsea had to pay a lot of money for a goalkeeper, too", Klopp said.

It was anticipated that Manchester City and Liverpool would take the title down to the wire.

"In any other country it would have been easily enough. It is completely different".
