What Liverpool beating Barcelona taught me about believing against the odds


Liverpool will be aiming to procure three points against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield on Sunday.

Wow. What an atmosphere, right?

Sarri's Napoli piled up a club-record points total in Serie A last term only to finish behind perennial winners Juventus, with the Italian drawing parallels with Jurgen Klopp's Reds, who have a Champions League final against Spurs to comfort them.

"I think he has great quality, but at Barca, you need more - you need to understand what Barca are", Alves said.

He said: "This year we tried for the first time (to win the Premier League title) and I really think that it was quite impressive for the first time". All I can do is my best and I am 100 percent sure I do my best.

Barcelona previous year in the playoffs of the Champions League have lost the advantage of three goals, losing 0:3 Roma in the return match of the 1/4 finals. "But I'd much rather be on our side, to know if we win the game, it's ours".

"I would not have thought it was possible being three times in a European final and twice in a Champions League final".

"This team is one of the best that ever played for Liverpool, 100%, but we play in a league with other very good teams, that is what we must accept, and we do accept no problem".

Henderson has impressed in a more advanced role in recent matches and Klopp said the England midfielder deserved recognition.

Therefore even if the fee was the £10million that Liverpool paid Hull City for the defender in 2017, an additional £100m would be added due to the clause.

"The season was really very hard for us, but I think at the end we are happy because we were in trouble three months ago, we were able to react very well", Sarri told a news conference.

Prior to the game, it looked as though Origi was set to be sold this summer after having struggled to earn regular game time with the Reds during the past two seasons.

"We used to struggle in the past with game management and then at the beginning of the season we had moments when we were 1-0 up and it looked like we were calming the game down completely when people wanted more football because they were not used to it".

'It was a unusual one last week because we were 3-0 down but still took confidence from the performance, ' said Henderson.

It was anticipated that Manchester City and Liverpool would take the title down to the wire.

"At the end we are in third position and at the end we reached the target of the club, the Champions League. It is completely different".
