The Premier League sides both have danger men within their ranks, as they have shown throughout the UCL this season

After falling short against Real Madrid last summer, Jurgen Klopp will be hoping to lead his side to glory at Wanda Metropolitano and will no doubt look to Sadio Mane and Mo Salah to provide inspiration in attack.

Mane and Salah have been at the forefront of Liverpool’s run to the final; the forwards scoring eight goals between them and placing first and fourth respectively in expected goals.

Spurs’ recent talisman in the UCL is Lucas Moura. His sensational match-winning hat-trick against Ajax in the semi-final saw him take his competition goal tally to five from just nine shots on target.

In terms of direct attacks, Tottenham better Liverpool by 10, creating 32 opportunities versus Liverpool’s 22.

Another danger man could also enter the fray, with Harry Kane expected to be fit to play some part in the showpiece final. The England captain has five goals in eight UCL appearances this season.
