Liverpool 3-0 Villarreal – what a game! We’re going to Basel!
It was the best performance of the season; cool under pressure, composed in attack, and an Anfield atmosphere to die for.
It was the type of game that you just want to watch again and again. From the moment that Villarreal captain Bruno scored an own goal in the seventh minute through to Adam Lallana’s stinging injury time effort, we were all-action, high-energy, and brutally efficient.
Can was everywhere, Sturridge was hungry, Firmino was magic, Lovren and Kolo were both rocks. No one put a foot wrong.
If the game is already a blur in your mind, you can relive all the action thanks to the extended highlights show below (via fullmatchesandshows.com):
Klopp will now lead his men into his second final of 2016, despite only being at the club since October. He’s also well on his way to following in Rafa’s famous first-season footsteps, having lost the League Cup final and now standing on the brink of a European title.
Sevilla are the team that await us in Switzerland on 18th May. It’ll be tough; they have won the competition the last two seasons have quality across pitch. But we are together, we have Klopp, and we have our fans. Who knows, we might even have Origi!
