Ex-Liverpool midfielder Graeme Souness has backed his former side to come out winners against Tottenham in the Champions League final.
Although the league match at Anfield was a close affair, with the Reds requiring an error from Hugo Lloris to clinch the three points back in March, Souness believes the Reds have more quality:
“For Klopp, it’ll be all about the games in the last few years [final defeats] don’t count for nothing. For Pochettino, it’s all about reminding them about how close they were.”
“The last two games that have been Anfield, when Spurs have gone there, this season and last season, Spurs were unlucky on both occasions. But Liverpool will win it – they have better players, simple as.”
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will be hoping one of his star players Roberto Firmino is back in contention for the match.
The Brazilian has been ruled out of tomorrow’s game against Wolves with a groin injury but he believes the forward should have enough time to make the final in Madrid on June 1st.
Andy Robertson, Jordan Henderson and Mo Salah are also touch and go for the last Premier League fixture but the trio are carrying knocks, rather than anything more serious.
The only player guaranteed to miss out for the match against Spurs is Naby Keita who has been ruled out with a thigh problem.
