Liverpool vs FC Barcelona: Confirmed line-ups, second-leg UEFA

Liverpool vs FC Barcelona: Confirmed line-ups, second-leg UEFA

"I don't know if I said something, really", Klopp said, as quoted by the Mirror.

Liverpool look like ending the season empty-handed after Manchester City's nervy 1-0 win over Leicester on Monday put Pep Guardiola's men in the driving seat to regain their Premier League title on Sunday.

The Reds are wrecked by injuries as Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah have been ruled out of the Tuesday night clash and as a result the Daily Mail reported that Brewster is in line to play against Barca. No disrespect to any of these teams, as they all have quality, but to get one point from games against Crystal Palace, Wolves, Leicester and Brighton isn't good enough.

"I don't tell my missus "wait for me at home, we will have a party after the game because we'll win it".

The Reds trail 3-0 after a rough first leg that saw the visitors fail to hit the target despite periods of dominance at the Camp Nou, and nothing short of a ideal performance will see them through to the Champions League final.

Liverpool's remarkable 4-3 aggregate triumph means a June 1 final against Ajax or Tottenham - and the chance to right the wrongs of last season's fall to Real Madrid at the last hurdle - awaits.

The winds were felt as far away as Mount Everest, with tents blown away at Camp 2 at 6,400 metres (21,000 feet) on Friday. Flooding has been reported in many areas of Orissa state as well as fallen trees and destroyed roofs on buildings.

The 42-year-old has reffed seven Champions League matches this season, including Liverpool's stunning 3-2 win over PSG at Anfield in the group stage.

When Fairclough came off the bench to score Liverpool's victor with just minutes left in the 1977 European Cup quarter-final against Saint-Etienne, he ensured he would be cherished forever at Anfield for the goal that sparked the team's run to win the tournament for the first time.

Into the final quarter-hour, Barcelona completely went to sleep on a corner kick that Liverpool's Alexander Arnold took quickly and played to Origi, who swung in a shot past Ter Stegen to improbably make it 4-3 to Liverpool in the tie.

"What we have to do is score", said Valverde.

Suarez's emphatic form for Liverpool earned him a £75million move to Barcelona in 2014, while Coutinho departed three-and-a-half years later for a fee in the region of £142million.

"Rhian has now arrived with us after being heavily injured". It would have been extraordinary to see them all on the field. "Against a team that concedes space (in behind) it is always important to have player like Ousmane".
