Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool can do no more in title race

Liverpool defied all expectation to overturn a three-goal deficit and reach the final of the Champions League with a 4-3 aggregate win against Barcelona.

Divock Origi and Georginio Wijnaldum fired Jurgen Klopp‘s men to a 4-0 win on the night, having headed into the second leg of their semi-final tie with a mountain to climb.

It was an inspired performance from the hosts who took the lead after seven minutes courtesy of Origi. After the restart, Wijnaldum hit home a quick-fire brace before Origi once again sent Anfield into pandemonium with his 79-minute winner.

From there, Liverpool dug in to withstand some late pressure from Barcelona and hold on for a memorable European victory.

So how did the two teams fare? See the gallery below for our player ratings.
