After the Champions League semi-final first legs, few would have thought that it would be an all-Premier-League final this season.

Liverpool went 3-0 down to Barcelona, while Tottenham lost their home leg 1-0 to Ajax, giving both Prem teams a mountain to climb.

The Reds managed to pull off a sensational comeback by thrashing Barcelona at Anfield, booking their spot in the final.

However, not wanting to be outdone, Spurs came from 3-0 down on aggregate at half-time in Amsterdam to score three and secure their own Madrid tickets.

Spurs and Liverpool will now meet on June 1 to battle it out for the trophy and to become champions of Europe.

One man who may find it difficult to choose a winner is Peter Crouch, as he enjoyed successful spells with both clubs.

Crouch spent three years of his youth career at Tottenham, followed by two senior years. Further down the line, he spent three years at Liverpool between 2005 and 2008, scoring 30 Prem goals. Crouch later joined Spurs again in 2009 and scored 12 Prem goals, including one that booked Spurs’ first ever Champions League qualification (Premier League).

On Good Morning Britain (Wednesday 22 May at 6 am), Peter Crouch hinted that he may be supporting Liverpool due to his family ties (Quoted by Birmingham Mail): “My wife is a big Liverpool fan, I’m surrounded by Scousers so we’ll see.”
