Champions League final: Tottenham v Liverpool past meetings

Champions League final: Tottenham v Liverpool past meetings

At half-time of the Champions League semi-final second leg between Ajax and Tottenham in Amsterdam, there would have been few people, Harry Kane included, who were wondering if his ankle injury would allow him to play in the final.

Trailing 1-0 after the first leg and 2-0 at half-time in the second, Lucas Moura scored a stirring hat-trick to seal the most unlikely of wins in the most dramatic fashion.

With the all English showdown against Liverpool on June 1 in Madrid, Kane, who sprinted onto the pitch to celebrate with his teammates at the final whistle, could possibly return for what would be the biggest game in the club's history.

Potential squad members could include Liverpool players Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Jordan Henderson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Harry Kane is the leader of the team, so he came in the dressing-room (at half-time) and even before the game he was in. He gives us that extra lift.

"There's still a game to play for them and us on Sunday and we'll see".

Believe it or not, Lucas Moura was not the only man on Tottenham fans' minds at the end of their heroic 3-2 comeback against Ajax. We all know the difficulties that we've faced this season and I think it was just a huge relief that we've made it to a Champions League final.

Liverpool have already earned significantly more than last season for reaching the Champions League final, and this will rise further if they defeat Tottenham.

"I think this is not about tactics, this is not about philosophy, this is about heart and soul, and a fantastic empathy he created with this group of players".

"All of those things and we have managed to finish in the top four and hopefully get to a Champions League final".

This week's UEFA Champions League semifinals both saw a pair of historic comebacks from Premier League sides.
