Joe Gomez believes the mentality of the current Liverpool squad considering their progress in the past 12 months would be an edge in the Champions League final.

Last season’s disappointing loss to Real Madrid in Kiev inspired Klopp’s men to mount a serious title challenge and another magnificent run in Europe’s top tier competition.

And after narrowly missing out on the League title with only a point, Jurgen Klopp’s men face Spurs in Madrid on June 1 in an attempt to secure the club its sixth European Cup.

Meanwhile, defender Joe Gomez who has been part of that journey believes the current squad are confident of wrapping up the campaign with the Champions League title.

“I definitely think we go into this final in a different place,” Gomez told Liverpoolfc.com. “It’s still a Champions League final and they’re always separate occasions and you have to approach it with the same mentality.

“But I think this year speaks for itself and the growth in the team has been massive.

“[The manager] shows and emphasises the fact that we’re a different team and we can’t go into thinking that we’re the same team.

“In that sense, we can take the confidence from that, but still have the desire to win one because we know what it means for this club and we want to get the sixth star.”
