Liverpool seek new 'heroes' with Salah absent against Barcelona

Liverpool seek new 'heroes' with Salah absent against Barcelona

Liverpool also have an outside chance of winning the Premier League as they trail leaders Manchester City by one point heading into the final round of fixtures on Sunday.

"The emotions that this place evokes on nights like these, there hasn't been a better night than this".

"We know this club is a mix of atmosphere, emotion, desire and footballing quality", Klopp said.

"It doesn't make life easier, but as long as we have 11 players on the pitch, we will try it".

To make their task even more hard, they'll have to try and turn things around against the La Liga champions without two of their key players as Jurgen Klopp confirmed a double injury blow at his press conference this afternoon.

We shouldn't forget, though, that Spurs were missing some vitally important players last week - most notably Kane, Son, Winks and, at the start at least, Sissoko - so we'll see how much better they are with at least a couple of those players back.

The 32-year-old then appeared to leave a bit on Andy Robertson as the first-half drew to a close, prompting yet more chanting from the Anfield faithful.

The Brazil global could be sent on a swap deal back to Liverpool and Mohamed Salah might go the other way, but Barcelona are now exploring other options to get rid of him, as reported by the Diario GOL.

They fell for a trap. "Against a team that concedes space (in behind) it is always important to have player like Ousmane".

They tried to play with control but Liverpool were too fast and intense, and Barca couldn't match it.

"What they've produced here is breathtaking and you can do nothing but respect the team, the management, and the way this club have conducted themselves, especially on a night like tonight". We came here looking at Messi in the final. What Liverpool produced here is breathtaking. It's only really football that does this to you.

Whether that comes off is still in the balance, but what is for certain is that they will now travel to Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano stadium on June 1 for a chance to win a sixth European title against one of either Tottenham Hotspur or Ajax.

Valverde only signed a contract extension earlier this year but president Josep Maria Bartomeu wasn't prepared to back his manager after the harrowing defeat at Anfield. Liverpool would be favourites if Spurs get through.

"It's a concussion so that means he would not even be allowed to play (on Tuesday)", Klopp said on Monday.
