The 12th Man does it again

It was too much for the yellow submarine to handle as they were completely dominated by Liverpool.
Emre Can – the future
The tie marked the return of the talismanic midfielder and the future of Liverpool.

His presence was vital in his side’s brilliant display and his return was a big boost ahead of the game for the manager. The midfielder is at the right club at the right time and he definitely has a bright future ahead of him.
Roberto Firmino showed his true class as an attacker in the game. He was everywhere – making those runs and creating chances for his teammates. His attacking flair is an asset to his side and he made his presence felt up-front. The Brazilian also showcased the Samba in his own way and Villarreal were not able to match his abilities.
Silverware – the silver lining for this season
Jurgen Klopp has managed to take his side to a European final in his first ever season at the club. Liverpool have not had a great season in terms of their league standings but all of that can be excused if the manager brings silverware to the club.
