Liverpool have won the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League final. It is their 6th major European title and has come 14 years since Steven Gerrard lifted that trophy. The Merseyside giants defeated Tottenham Hotspurs 2-0 to clinch the title as Mo Salah scored from a penalty mere seconds after kick-off.

The rest of the game consisted of Spurs trying to bridge the deficit and they certainly would have, had it not been for the sheer heroics of Alisson Becker who rendered most of the 8 shots that the London side found on target to be pointless. In the 87th minute, Divock Origi’s goal set the champagne bottles soaring as Liverpool secured their win.

Twitter was riddled with reactions to the final. The game was hyped to be one for the ages given the nature of the semi-finals and the comeback drama that had ensued.

However, most fans pointed out the rather toothless nature of the final. There were even those who contested the penalty that was awarded early on.

Liverpool supporters were ecstatic in their celebration, calling for Origi to be awarded the Ballon d’Or whilst hailing Jurgen Klopp for his effective impact substitution. Van Dijk and Becker were also hailed for their efforts in securing their backline despite the relentless nature of Spurs’ attack.

It was a night to be celebrated for English football and one that Liverpool fans were glad to be a part of.
