first_imgIf Liverpool were to lift the Champions League trophy against Tottenham Hotspur at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid on Saturday, not only would it be the first major honour under Jurgen Klopp’s reign at Anfield but a deserved cap to arguably their strongest season in the Premier League era.The Reds, who finished a close second behind Manchester City in the top flight this season, have the chance to secure some much deserved silverware after missing out to Real Madrid in last season’s final, following their stunning form in 2018-19.Though they endured a somewhat shaky start, ultimately progressing behind Paris Saint-Germain as runners-up in Group C after three wins and three defeats, they have only lost once since on the road to the showpiece event.
