Former Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United striker Teddy Sheringham has shared his thoughts ahead of the Champions League final.

Liverpool currently sit 24 points ahead of Spurs in the Premier League table, having also done the double over Mauricio Pochettino’s side this season.

The first defeat came at Wembley when the Reds ran out 2-1 winners in September, the return fixture at Anfield in was a more closely contested affair but they once again won by the same scoreline.

Sheringham, however who lifted the Champions League during his time at Manchester United believes that Liverpool’s league form will count for nothing when they meet Spurs in Madrid on June 1st.

It will be the first time that Spurs have made it to the final of Europe’s most prestigious club competition while Liverpool have been crowned champions of Europe on five separate occasions.

“I know Liverpool have got a lot more points in the league but I think it will be so evenly matched,” Sheringham told Love Sport Radio.

“Both teams have their way of playing, I think it will be a great footballing game, hopefully they don’t cancel each other out with the way they play.

“But there are fantastic players all over the pitch and forward lines that you would pay to queue up and watch and I think it’s going to be a fantastic final and one I’ll be glued to.

The former striker believes that Spurs’ win against Manchester City in the quarter final proves that the lilywhites are capable of beating anyone.

“When they drew Manchester City in the quarter-final, everyone was saying it was the worst draw they could’ve had, but I had the belief because they have got the style of play, they’ve got the physical awareness as a team and they can match any team on the day,” he added.

“There is no reason why they can’t go to Madrid and match Liverpool and maybe nick it over there as well.”
