Liverpool eased past Villarreal in a tension free finale at Anfield. They will face Europa League kingpins Sevilla in Basel in just under two weeks time, fifteen years after their 5-4 win over Alaves in the UEFA Cup Final.
The phrase 'one of those special European nights' has become worn out from overuse and has been declared the cliche of mass destruction for the evening that's in it.
Emre Can and Roberto Firmino were showered with garlands after tonight's display, as was their manager. As things stand, there is a conga line of celebration currently winding its way down Dame Street.

Managers like Ranieri, Klopp and Pochettino are so important signings.To build a culture. Have a look at the clubs who signed the wrong ones

Emre Can was monstrous tonight.
Firmino was really good too but after that I’m struggling to pick third best/rest. So many big displays!

59 games into the season and Liverpool play with that intensity. Wonder what Raymond Verheijen thinks of it all

The Yellow Submarine sank without trace. Congratulations to Liverpool on reaching the final of the Europa League.

Impossible to split Emre & Firmino for MOM tonight. Both superhuman physical performances with outstanding quality. 10/10.
