Jamie Carragher says Liverpool are rightly the favourites going into the Champions League final, but that Tottenham will feel that it might be their year after their run to Madrid.
Like when the Reds beat Juventus and AC Milan against the odds in 2005, Spurs have come back from seemingly being dead and buried first against Manchester City, and then against Ajax.
Carragher told the Anfield Wrap: “If Liverpool play well, they’ll win. I’m not going into it massively nervous of the opposition.
“My only worry is, are Tottenham going to do a Liverpool 2005, a Chelsea 2012 at Bayern Munich, where they’re not a great team or in great form but they just find a way and things are happening for them?
“It could be that special year for them, it could be.”
Carra, as always, makes a good point, but after the comeback against Barcelona in the semi-final, very similar could be said of the Reds. No one saw that coming, and Barca still have not recovered from the shock.
As long as the Reds perform on the night, we should have enough to get the victory having beaten Spurs twice this season already in the Premier League, but nothing is guaranteed.
Hopefully, this time next week, we will be celebrating a sensational third victory and number six will have been won.
