I can’t wait any longer! with the deepest respect to West Brom I’m sure you’ll all agree that this huge final is the only game on our minds right now. So here goes with the final match post of the season…
Not expecting any surprises with the team selection, it’s looking pretty likely that we’ll see the same starting lineup as the Chelsea game last week. Henderson and Origi are hoping to return but it’s too early to say whether they will make it.
A tough game ahead, Sevilla may not be the best team in the world but they have literally owned this competition in recent years, their experience will be their most vital asset. Any showing of nerves from Liverpool may prove fatal.
The Spanish side finished 7th in the league, 8 points behind 6th placed Celta Vigo. Kevin Gameiro was the clubs top scorer and will pose the biggest threat upfront in a side full of familiar names.
In case you missed it BT Sport are showing the game for free in the UK, Liverpool’s echo arena are also holding a special event to show the match (I’d love to be there). Kick off is 7.45pm.
Sadly I’ll be missing the opening! I’m away for a couple of days with work and land back at Liverpool airport at 8.05pm where I’ll be desperately trying to find a TV.
What are your thoughts, opinions, score predictions? Klopp may have to choose between Origi and Sturridge here…
