I was always a homebird as a football supporter when I lived over yonder but Liverpool and West Ham were about the only clubs outside the City that I liked. I could never stand the likes of Man u.,Chelsea, Arsenal etc. etc. , but always had a soft spot for Liverpool. Would like to see them pull it off today. Anyone else hoping they win?

Foreign owners, foreign manager, foreign players. It won't mean the same but I still want to see an English name on the trophy again.
The clincher for anyone not too sure is just to think who the Man Utd fans want to win.

Bad news for Liverpool Salah has left the game with an injury. Not good at all, he scored 44 goals this season with 33% of The Reds output. Backs against the wall now after a great start.

Mr. T. What was not to like about the Chelsea team circa 1965-1973 ?. Peter Osgood, Bobby Tambling, Peter Bonetti, Charlie Cook, John Hollins, Marvin Hinton, Barry Bridges, George Graham, Alan Hudson and Peter Houseman etc, The captain at most of the time.. well, I left his name out.

Two other "gentlemen" missing from the list - David Webb and Eddie McCreadie.

Was the Liverpool keeper channeling Gary Sprake?

The third goal must have swung and dipped. Otherwise it was an easy save to make.

I’ve a bit of sympathy with Karius for the first goal, Benzema bought a lottery ticket and got lucky. Then, of course that beauty of a second goal, nobody would have stopped that.

Liverpool were all over Real Madrid for the opening period.

Once their energy level dropped a tad, RM were able to better retain possession of the ball,they then dominated.

Salah injury was pivotal.

Robertson and Mane were Liverpools best two.

First keepers mistake when you watch it many times - what was he thinking?

Ronaldo looks completely finished based on his performance.

Modric is under rated and with Benzema was the best player on the pitch.

He may not have been as effective, but Real Madrid at least proved they can win games without relying on Ronaldo..contrast to Liverpool, who looked lost without Salah.

However, Ronaldo's mere presence on a team makes that team effective. He draws defenders away from the real threat, that's what great players, who are not on their game do.
