WOW what an absolute stunner last night at Anfield, down 3-0 heading home Liverpool pulled off an absolute miracle against Barcelona. The scoreline from the first leg didn’t really represent how it went at Barcelona. They just took their chances and Liverpool definitely did not. It was going to be hard enough heading home in a 3-0 hole, but they were also without two of their top players in Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah. Enter Divock Origi, every time he gets called on in a big game he seems to produce and last night wasn’t any different, bagging the first and the eventual winner in the second leg.
I was absolutely speechless watching this, well speechless yes but there was lots of screaming. Theres something about these Anfield nights that are just special, the atmosphere and the togetherness between Klopp, the players and the fans is just something that I have never seen before. Anytime Liverpool drop points or looks like their going to, the media starts with the Klopp has never won anything at Liverpool. I get it as a top soccer team you have to win trophies. That being said this is the best Liverpool team I have ever seen in my life and the way they have fought back from the dead soo many times this year, has truly been a joy to watch. A lot of people forget where this team was at before Klopp got here, besides that run in 2013 Liverpool hadnt even sniffed at a title. Many years we were lucky to be in the champions league and here we are going to back to back champions league finals and still have a very realistic chance to win the title on Sunday.
Every single player on this squad has pitched in this year and I think thats whats soo special about this squad. Klopp has this team believing that on any day, no matter who he puts out there they can beat anybody in the world. They proved that last night by beating an excellent Barcelona side with the likes of Messi and I hate to say it our not so old friend Luis Suarez. As a Liverpool fan these are the nights we live for and the nights well never forget. We’ve got two games left on this rollercoaster ride, fingers crossed Brighton can pull off something special for us on the weekend and we can steal the league on the final day. Well find out who Liverpool play today in Madrid, with the winner of Ajax and Tottenham going through. Ajax has a 1-0 lead from the first leg and well be tough to beat at home in the Netherlands. Lets enjoy Sunday and lets enjoy the final June 1st. This Liverpool squad is one for the ages and we should be enjoying every second of it. The Klopp era has been something we should be very proud of as Liverpool fans and Im sure the trophies aren’t far away. I Lost my mind watching that game last night, pacing back and forth for ninety minutes, I hope all you Liverpool fans were the same as me. Were in this thing together, this is our squad and lets ride this season out until the end. YNWA
