Inside The Liverpool Dressing Room After Miracle Comeback Against Barca

Trent Alexander-Arnold

Robertson recently described Messi as the best player in the world, but he had no intention of showing respect to the 31-year-old on the pitch.

"Unbelievable. I don't think many people gave us a chance".

Juergen Klopp's side will play the victor of Wednesday's other semi-final between Ajax Amsterdam and Tottenham Hotspur, with the Dutch side leading 1-0 from the first leg in London.

Liverpool will now face either AFC Ajax or Premier League rivals Tottenham in the final.

Despite the absence of star forwards Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, Liverpool completed the great escape through braces from Divock Origi and Georginio Wijnaldum at a raucous Anfield.

Liverpool went ahead on the night after just seven minutes courtesy of a strike from Divock Origi.

The goals came fewer than 10 minutes after Jurgen Klopp brought Wijnaldum on in the 46th minute, something not lost on soccer fans.

What else do Liverpool have to lose?

Former Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas had huge praise for Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold after the full-back's quick thinking on a corner helped send the Reds through to their second Champions League final in two years. It wasn't just the goal, it was getting after them and putting them under pressure.

Alexander-Arnold's determination down the right reclaimed possession and the Scouser's low cross reached the arriving Wijnaldum in the middle for a prod at goal that got through the grasp of Ter Stegen.

Robertson impressed in the first-half as he put in some crucial tackles and interceptions to thwart Barcelona's frightening attack of Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Philippe Coutinho.

The result means that Liverpool head to the final for the chance to win their sixth European crown. Barca won their last European Cup in 2015 following a 3-1 win over Juventus in Berlin.

"The most hurtful thing is to repeat it", said Valverde, who may struggle to hold onto his job despite winning two La Liga titles as Barca boss.

Liverpool showed on Tuesday that if Messi can be contained, so too are his teammates and this is a point which has resonated around social media, in varying degrees, since the final whistle on a famous night on Merseyside.
