Milner: Liverpool can beat Barcelona in UCL semi-final

Milner: Liverpool can beat Barcelona in UCL semi-final

Will Liverpool reach the final of the Champions League this season? Their Champions League run was a bonus given the issues in both playing personnel and management they've had this season, and the true target will have been to make sure they were in that competition again next season.

Former Reds manager Rafa Benitez is good at setting up a team to frustrate opponents, but with their safety all but assured, the Magpies have less on the line than Liverpool. Personally, I think we will put in a shift v Liverpool but think you will be too strong.

Here, we look at some of the top football transfer stories from the British and world media in The Sport Review's Grapevine, published every day in the build-up to the 2019 summer transfer window.

Chelsea are now left battling for fourth place in the Premier League and are through to the semi-finals of the Europa League, courtesy of a 5-3 aggregate win over Slavia Prague, leaving two paths open for next season's Champions League.

"I spoke to him at half-time and he had a big knock in the leg", Sarri said.

"We gave them the game that they didn't want to have".

Mane's stats, in comparison, are still impressive - he has given Liverpool the lead nine times, of which eight have been the first goal of the game, and added to leads the rest of the time.

Star Lawyering Protected President Trump From Firing Robert Mueller
When the president later learned McGahn had told Mueller about the episode, he questioned his counsel's judgment. Trump on Friday lashed out at the Mueller report, claiming some of the findings were "fabricated".

The Premier League's move is less dramatic than their Dutch counterparts who cancelled the league programme on the weekend before Ajax play Spurs in their first leg match on April 30. "Cardiff are used to defending with all they have".

The free-scoring Argentine would undoubtedly be amongst the favourites to lift football's greatest individual honour if he does finish the season with silverware, but Rivaldo feels that Messi is already worthy of the accolade.

Cardiff are lost three of their last four home games (W1) which leaves them with a home record of W6 D2 L9.

It is crunch time in the season but Klopp denied the tension was getting to his team. "It's a long slog but, when you are near the end, you don't think about all the miles completed, just the couple you still have to do", he says.

In terms of the title race and the top two, Liverpool have known who is on their shoulder all along. Before that, they travel to Wolves on Saturday, and when you consider that's one of their more appealing remaining fixtures, the size of the problem is emphasised.

"I think it's a great team and that's the main thing". That is big. That is a really big statement.
