Alan Shearer believes Liverpool have the edge in the Champions League final against Tottenham Hotspur this season.
Klopp’s men will take on Premier League rivals Tottenham in the final of the Champions League at Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid on June 1.
However, Newcastle United legend Shearer has backed the Reds to win Europe’s premier club competition at the expense of Spurs.
On the other hand, the former England international striker, though, has suggested the long break may work against Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Shearer wrote about Liverpool in The Sun: “On form, his side should beat Spurs. They did the double over them in the League this season. And there are not too many Spurs players who would get in this Liverpool side.
“Certainly, in defence, I would swap only one — Toby Alderweireld or Jan Vertonghen to partner Virgil van Dijk.
“I am still tipping Liverpool to edge it but you have to wonder if they will have lost a bit of momentum from having not played for three weeks.
“Yes, Spurs have had the same time off. But Liverpool finished the season so strongly, winning all of their last nine games to push City right to the wire.”
The Reds have emerged victorious in the last two meetings against Spurs in the League and most pundits believe that could count as a psychological advantage heading into the clash.
