Klopp responsible for Liverpool's Champions League comeback - Mourinho

Trent Alexander-Arnold

Luis Suarez offered a scathing assessment of his Barcelona team, saying they played like "schoolboys" in the remarkable 4-0 Uefa Champions League semi-final, second leg defeat to Liverpool.

That sent Anfield wild, but then Klopp's side suddenly found themselves needing to switch mindset and defend a lead as Barca slipped, belatedly, into their trademark possession game.

"Unbelievable. I don't think many people gave us a chance".

Tottenham or Ajax await them in the final in Madrid on 1st June.

After Mo Salah went down with an injury on Saturday, most thought Liverpool's chances to advance to a second Champions League Final was over.

Robertson was just trying to rattle Messi, which a lot of players have tried down the years but not many have succeeded.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr celebrated Liverpool's memorable Champions League semifinal comeback.

Braces from Divock Origi and Georginio Wijnaldum saw a Liverpool side missing injured pair Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino to their win.

Trump Slams Kentucky Derby Upset as 'Political Correctness'
Country House was declared victor after the horse first past the post was ruled to have impeded rivals on Saturday. It is the first time a Derby victor has been disqualified because of a foul on the track.

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.

It was Alexander-Arnold that delivered the clever corner kick from which Origi swept home their fourth goal.

Divock Origi scores Liverpool's decisive fourth goal. Like the club's comback win over AC Milan in the final in 2005, this was a heavyweight match for the ages, one that Liverpool fans won't soon forget.

Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverdewas left to face up to the second major European embarrassment of his time in charge. Barca won their last European Cup in 2015 following a 3-1 win over Juventus in Berlin.

"When you have a collapse of this nature", Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said, "we will have a few disgusting days ahead".

And that's without taking into account that Fabregas has been a fan of Barcelona since childhood, along with being a very successful player there, and surely would have been disappointed or even angry to see his team crash out of the competition in such fashion.

For Barca, who went out on away goals to AS Roma in the quarter-finals past year, after winning the first-leg 4-1, it was a bitter occasion that will raise many questions for coach Ernesto Valverde.
