Jurgen Klopp’s side have also had a memorable league campaign racking up their highest ever tally of 97 points bettered only by one point by eventual champions Manchester City.

“Overall, team against team, (Liverpool) have got the better players.” He told daily Starnu

“They finished 20-odd points ahead of Tottenham this season so it’s hard to make a case where Tottenham are favourites.

“But, as we know in football, the best teams don’t always win, which is one of the things that makes it so special.” Lineker further went on to add.

Liverpool will be looking for their sixth ever Champions League triumph and for the first major trophy under Jurgen Klopp since his appointment back in 2015.

This will be Tottenham’s first ever shot at Champions League success as the club look for their first ever European Silverware since winning the UEFA Cup back in 1971-72.
