Liverpool have been crowned Kings of Europe after defeating Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid Spain to win the UEFA Champions League.

The victory comes a year after the premier league side lost to Real Madrid in the saame final in Kiev, Ukraine.

Mohamed Salah’s second-minute penalty and a late Divock Origi strike saw the Reds claim the continent’s biggest club prize for a sixth time.

They won in Rome 1977, London 1978, Paris 1981, Rome 1984 and Istanbul 2005 which was the most dramatic.

Clinical finishing, coupled with an indomitable performance from Alisson Becker, proved the difference in a tight, tense encounter played out amid stifling heat.

Spurs manager, Mauriccio Pochettino will be disappointed his side were not able to produce more.

Returning star Harry Kane failed to make an impact, whereas Origi once again proved an unlikely Champions League hero for the Anfield team.
