Liverpool 2-0 Tottenham: Liverpool goals either side of Tottenham dominance

Liverpool won their sixth European Cup after a disappointing final when neither side played at their best. Roberto Firmino was declared fit to start, while Jurgen Klopp selected Gini Wijnaldum over James Milner in midfield.

Ajax 2-3 Tottenham: Plan B Llorente frees up Plan A Lucas to score hattrick

Reminder that my book Zonal Marking is out tomorrow! Just like Liverpool the previous evening, Tottenham came back from 3-0 down in the tie, to set up an all-English Champions League final. Eric ten Hag was without David Neres, and therefore switched Dusan Tadic to the left flank, with Kasper Dolberg upfront. Mauricio Pochettino was still without...

Tottenham 0-5 Liverpool: Villas-Boas’ return to a high line results in him losing his job

Liverpool were completely dominant throughout the 90 minutes in a staggeringly one-sided game. Andre Villas-Boas selected a team very similar to the XI that drew with Manchester United recently, although injury problems at the back forced him to play Etienne Capoue out of position at centre-back, and Kyle Naughton at left-back. Brendan Rodgers named his expected...

Tottenham 2-2 Manchester United: Villas-Boas uses a much more cautious system

Tottenham went ahead twice, but mistakes allowed Manchester United back into the game. Andre Villas-Boas brought back Vlad Chiriches in defence, Mousa Dembele in midfield, plus Aaron Lennon and Nacer Chadli on the flanks. David Moyes was still without Robin van Persie and Michael Carrick – Tom Cleverley partnered Phil Jones in the middle, despite the...
