Pochettino on Liverpool’s title failure and looking ahead to the Champions League final

With the Premier League season done and dusted both Liverpool and Spurs can start to look forward to the all-important Champions League final at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid on the 1st of June.

While Spurs’ draw against Everton was enough to see the Lilywhites secure fourth spot, Liverpool had to settle with second place despite winning their game against Wolves.

The Reds have had a stellar Premier League campaign and clocked up an amazing 97 points but yet couldn’t win the title due to the brilliance of Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have also put in some remarkable performances in the Champions League, including the recent 4-0 drubbing of Barcelona in the second leg of the semi final.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said that Liverpool were unlucky not to end up being Premier League champions and that the losing the title would make them hungrier for the Champions League finals.

Speaking during the post-match press conference, the Argentine told Football.London, “No, they will be disappointed now but they made an amazing, amazing season and for sure a little bit unlucky because of the points they got.

“In other circumstances they would have won the Premier League. They have an unbelievable squad and an unbelievable manager in Klopp. Today they feel disappointed for sure but tomorrow, like us, they start to think about the final.”

Spurs Web Opinion

We believe that Liverpool’s title loss certainly works to Tottenham’s advantage, as the Reds are now under a lot of pressure as they face the prospect of ending a brilliant campaign completely trophy-less.

If Tottenham start well in Madrid, the Reds might get nervous as the game goes on and make mistakes.

  1. Do you mean to write that if Liverpool start well, Spurs won’t feel the pressure? How bizarre! It’s another match, another final. Both teams will be up for it and both will feel the desperation, not nervousness, to win it.
