Liverpool may have fallen short to Manchester City in the Premier title race, however, the Merseysiders will be hoping to put that disappointment behind them by clinching their sixth European crown.
The Reds signed off the campaign at Anfield Sunday with a 2-0 win over Wolves but that wasn’t enough to usurp Pep Guardiola’s men who blitzed the Seagulls 4-1 to defend their crown.
Klopp’s men have now switched focus to the European Cup final against Premier League rivals Tottenham with Atletico Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano the venue for an all-English affair on June 1.

And Premier League Golden Boot winner Salah, alongside fellow African duo in Sadio Mane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – has called on Liverpool fans to take a little piece of Anfield to Madrid with them.
The Reds have gone two seasons unbeaten in both Europe and the domestic scene, winning 17 games with 2 draws – making it the fortress it was once known for.
The Anfield crowd were once again the famous 12th man when the Reds masterminded a dramatic comeback to beat Barcelona 4-0 to progress to the final.
And the Egyptian King who missed out in the tie has challenged Kopites to paint Madrid red as they close in on a silverware for the first time since 2012 when they last won the League Cup.
