Liverpool dressing room celebrates stunning win over Barcelona

Danny Mills: I’m expecting Klopp to make this surprise Liverpool tactical move tonight

Liverpool delivered the greatest in a long line of famous comebacks to reach the Champions League final on Tuesday, beating Lionel Messi's Barcelona 4-0 at Anfield to overturn a three-goal deficit from the first leg.

Given the size of the task seemingly facing Liverpool, it was no surprise to hear Jurgen Klopp had warned his wife not to expect a celebration when he returned home from Anfield.

"I do not know how it's going to affect me, here we are, the coach has to take responsibility", boss Ernesto Valverde said.

Liverpool will face either England's Tottenham Hotspur or Dutch side Ajax Amsterdam in the final this year. Divock and [Xherdan] Shaqiri didn't play a lot.

Anfield was shaking well before Origi ignited the Liverpool fans' hopes of another remarkable European recovery - and, boy, was it shaking at full time!

Wijnaldum, who admitted to being furious at manager Juergen Klopp for being omitted from the starting line-up, came on at halftime for injured left back Andy Robertson.




Former Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas had huge praise for Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold after the full-back's quick thinking on a corner helped send the Reds through to their second Champions League final in two years.

Shocking defence by Barcelona after Rakitic gave the ball away, Alexander-Arnold beat Alba before putting in a tremendous cross to Wijnaldum who hit it into the goal. "Liverpool were street smart and they scored".

Origi scored a dramatic late victor in Liverpool's 3-2 Premier League win at Newcastle United on Saturday night, as he headed in an expertly-placed free-kick from fellow substitute Xherdan Shaqiri.

Once again the Catalan giants, who last won the Champions League in 2015, wilted when the stakes were highest. No team had done it in the Champions League era.

In the opening five minutes, Messi went down under a challenge from Fabinho outside Liverpool's box and as Robertson ran past him, he shoved his opponent's head downwards.

Explaining the fourth goal, Alexander-Arnold told BT Sport: "I think it was just instinctive". There were more topical shots at Barca.
