    "I think Liverpool made Villarreal play at a pace they were not comfortable playing at. 

    "The third goal was obviously key but in the end Liverpool had Villarreal making all sorts of mistakes. That was a sign of a team that had been out fought, out thought and out played."

    Liverpool players celebrate

    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, speaking to BT Sport: "Wonderful night, brilliant game from my side. What a performance. The first half an hour was a big emotion. It was great. The last 15 minutes of tthe first half we lost patience. The second half plan was to keep going with the emotional football but using the brain a bit more and in the end brilliant.

    "Everyone spoke a lot about this team before I came here. It was all about quality and not good transfers, I came here because I thought they had a nice squad but now we are in the final - Basel - a longer season!"
