After narrowly missing out on the Premier League title, Liverpool are seeking to make amends in the Champions League final.


Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson has dubbed the game as the biggest game of his life and has promised it will end in a silver lining.

Jurgen Klopp will lead his side into a European showpiece at Wanda Metropolitano on June 1- the club’s first back to back finals since 1977-78.

The former Dortmund boss is still seeking his first piece of major silverware at Anfield and will finally aim to end the wait having gone agonisingly close in the past.

“I can’t wait,” he told Liverpoolfc.com in Marbella.

“Once we finished the Premier League, there were 20 days to prepare the final. I’m looking forward to playing this big game. It’s maybe the biggest game in my life.”

A clean sheet against Spurs next Saturday would, of course, go a long way to securing Liverpool a sixth European Cup.

Alisson has already racked up 26 shutouts in 2018-19, including an unrivalled 21 in the Premier League to clinch the Golden Glove prize in his debut season.

“It was such an honour, such a big award in the world of football,” the 26-year-old replied when asked how it felt to collect the award at Anfield on the final day of the season.

“The award is not just mine, it’s an award for my teammates also, who work hard to keep clean sheets in the game. It’s a target for everyone.”

The Reds are currently stationed in Marbella, Spain for a six-day training camp designed to step up their preparations for the showdown with Tottenham.
