Alex Cora Has Great Reaction To Liverpool’s Stunning Win Over Barcelona

And Origi scored the fourth which means Liverpool will face either Tottenham or Ajax in the Champions League final in Madrid on June 1.

Speaking after the game, two-goal hero, Origi said he was detailed by the coach to stay close to the Barcelona defenders and try to catch them off guard.

The comeback was all the more unlikely given that Liverpool was without two of its first-choice forward line, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

Liverpool have lost only one Premier League game in 2018-19 but that is not because they are a defensive team.

"Unbelievable. I don't think many people gave us a chance", Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson said.

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.

Liverpool one of the best teams I've faced as manager: Pep Guardiola
City's players have clauses written into their heavily incentivised contracts guaranteeing bonuses for each competition they win. But if we don't do it next Sunday and City are crowned champions, we can be proud of what we've done, everyone.

However, Origi - making a rare start - and substitute Wijnaldum both netted twice as Barca for the second season in succession surrendered a three-goal first-leg lead to exit the Champions League.

The Reds won 4-0 at Anfield, with Divock Origi scoring the victor from Trent Alexander-Arnold's quick corner, to overturn a 3-0 first-leg deficit. Despite being one of the dominant sides of Europe and having one of the greatest players to ever grace the game, Barcelona have failed to win the Champions league since 2015. You can not say bad things against these two for a game played badly or a missed qualification or a defeat.

Lionel Messi was inconsolable in the dressing room following Barcelona's 4-0 defeat at Liverpool as they will miss out on their first Champions League Final since 2015.

Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson was forced off at half-time during Liverpool's 4-0 win over Barcelona, casting doubt over his fitness for this weekend.

"The most hurtful thing is to repeat it", said Valverde, who may struggle to hold on to his job despite guiding Barca to two La Liga titles.

Being totally honest, beforehand I was not expecting Liverpool to get through the tie.
