Liverpool complete historic comeback to beat Barcelona, advance to UCL final

Trent Alexander-Arnold

Exhaustion and astonishment soon gave way to jubilant celebration and some very dodgy dancing as Liverpool's players celebrated their sensational win over Barcelona in the dressing room at Anfield.

"I do not know how it's going to affect me, here we are, the coach has to take responsibility", boss Ernesto Valverde said.

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.

Tottenham or Ajax await them in the final in Madrid on 1st June. Divock and [Xherdan] Shaqiri didn't play a lot.

Liverpool, without two-thirds of their strike force with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino injured, took a seventh-minute lead when a poorly headed clearance from Jordi Alba fell at the feet of Henderson, who burst goalward.

It eventually came with just 12 minutes left on the clock, when Barca were caught napping from Alexander Arnold's quick corner and Origi smashed home his second of the night in front of the Kop.

Georginio Wijnaldum celebrates scoring for Liverpool vs Barcelona.

A sea of people donned in yellow - the colour of His Majesty - lined the roads eager to see the new King with their own eyes. Junta chief Prayut Chan-O-Cha, who seized power in a 2014 coup, took part in numerous key rituals, including the procession.

"When they scored the goal, when they were pressing so high, it was really hard".

The last Champions League final without a Spanish team was an all-German affair between Bayern and Borussia Dortmund.

Yet with Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip outstanding in the centre of defence and Brazilian Fabinho making some crucial interventions in midfield, Liverpool held on for one of their most famous wins.

Once again the Catalan giants, who last won the Champions League in 2015, wilted when the stakes were highest.

But it was a sublime set-piece of Liverpool's own that settled the tie in their favour - Alexander-Arnold's quick thinking catching Barcelona unaware and teeing up Origi to hammer in the most priceless goal of the season. His pass from the corner found a wide-open Origi, who steered a shot into the top corner with his first touch.

Mills claimed the Liverpool manager will instead shake up his system and go more with the tried and trusted players integral to the team's Premier League and Champions League plans.
