Liverpool will be 'on fire' against Madrid in final, says Klopp

Jurgen Klopp provided an update on the fitness of injured trio Joe Gomez, Adam Lallana and Emre Can as well as the rest of his Liverpool squad of this weekend's Premier League fixture with Chelsea.

Jurgen Klopp has missed no opportunity to remind his players that this Chelsea game is as important as the final in Kiev.

"We were in a League Cup final and didn't win it", Klopp told reporters. In May 2003, it came down to the final game of the season and Liverpool had again stumbled from a good position. He was also the first Dutch scorer in a Champions League semi-final since 2013, when Arjen Robben netted for Bayern Munich.

Liverpool would be the best team in the world if football matches lasted 75 minutes.

Roma midfielder Nainggolan played a suicidal square ball that was pounced on by Roberto Firmino, who drove forward and played it through to Mane who buried his left-footed finish past Roma's Brazilian keeper Alisson.

The third-placed Reds have two games remaining and are six points clear. "Now we have to play that game - Chelsea are waiting".

Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Boston Bruins 5/4/18, Prediction & Odds
The Tampa Bay Lightning are looking to get a second road win during the second round series against the Boston Bruins on Friday. Cassidy said he felt comfortable with the defensive work that Gionta's line did all game, so the trust was there in overtime.

"They have three special players in (Sadio) Mane, (Roberto) Firmino and (Mohamed) Salah".

Liverpool are the top scorers in the competition, have scored in every away game in the Champions League this season and will fancy continuing that record against Real Madrid in the final. "The league is equally important [as the Champions League]", Klopp said.

British media reports have said Conte's tenure at Stamford Bridge could end in the close season.

"We have to get the three points". We are going to go there and fight, for the fans, for the clubs, and fight without fear and win the final.

"He gets the history of the football club, he really seriously gets the supporters, he knows it's a working-class football club", said former Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson, speaking emotionally after Wednesday's game. This season's haul of 43 strikes in all competitions has been exceptional and surprising, not least to Conte who admitted his shock at seeing the Egyptian develop into the Premier League's leading player.

Despite their semi-final heartbreak in Madrid, Arsenal will receive roughly €40m from their Europa League campaign, largely thanks to the disparity in performance between themselves and the only other English representative, Everton. "It was a little bit exciting - more exciting than I actually wanted".
