Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool will battle it out for Champions League glory on Saturday, and an exciting clash between both Premier League sides is eagerly anticipated.
The Reds overcame a 3-0 first-leg loss to Barcelona to book their place in the final after winning 4-0 at Anfield, while Spurs needed just 45 minutes to secure a 3-3 draw with Ajax having lost the first-leg and first-half by 1-0 and 2-0 respectively.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino and his Liverpool counterpart Jurgen Klopp will be looking to win their first ever piece of silverware since moving to the English top-flight, and Premier League legend Alan Shearer believes the German is favourite to lead his side to victory.
The ex-Newcastle United striker in his column in The Sun reckons Liverpool’s form – which saw them do the double over Tottenham in the League this season – and their superior quality hands them the advantage.
With Harry Kane struggling for full fitness ahead of weekend, Pochettino has a selection headache on his hands should the English striker receive the medical all-clear.
However, Shearer says he wouldn’t start him against Liverpool considering that hasn’t played a game for seven weeks.
With the trio of Son Heung-min, Lucas Moura and Fernando Llorente stepping up in his absence against Manchester City and Ajax, the league’s highest goalscorer believes Kane will be a better option off the bench.
