  • Danny Mills: I’m expecting Klopp to make this surprise Liverpool tactical move tonight

"I am really proud to be manager of this team", Klopp, 51, said.

"Playing against the best team in the world. We need new chapters obviously and the boys did it". "It's unbelievable", added the German.

"They had a risk of finishing a fantastic season without anything to celebrate and now they are one step from being European champions". It means so much to all of us. "We can not commit the same mistake two years in a row, there are many things we need to consider and think about", Suarez added.

That holds regardless of what happens on the final day of the Premier League season or, as it happens, even in Madrid next month.

When Fairclough came off the bench to score Liverpool's victor with just minutes left in the 1977 European Cup quarter-final against Saint-Etienne, he ensured he would be cherished forever at Anfield for the goal that sparked the team's run to win the tournament for the first time.

But Suarez insisted Valverde, who has led Barca to two successive La Liga titles and taken them to the Copa del Rey final, should not face criticism for another European meltdown.

Perhaps it didn't help that cheeky Liverpool fans set off fireworks at four in the morning outside the Barcelona team hotel in a bid to give Lionel Messi and his team-mates a sleepless night.

Indeed, Origi delivered a deserved victory no matter how the play came about.

Mr Buffett said 3G's management, which is responsible for the day-to-day running of the food company, was doing well operationally.

Klopp: "It was overwhelming". It has been incredible from all the players, the decisions that went for and against them, the players they had to play without and then Robertson went off at half time. Wow.

His low shot was parried out by Barca keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen but straight to Origi who slotted home.

Two minutes later, Wijnaldum rose to meet a Shaqiri cross with a powerful header to make it 3-3 on aggregate.

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

However, Robertson suffered a blow after being involved in a coming together with Suarez, with the Uruguayan flicking his leg out at the defender as he chased back.

There weren't just memes from years ago.

Jurgen Klopp's men needed to overturn a 3-0 first-leg defeat after Barcelona appeared to clinch the tie at the Nou Camp. They had chances as Liverpool exposed themselves at the back, but unlike the first leg, they were not clinical in front of goal.
