Steven Gerrard sends message to Liverpool ahead of Europa League final

Liverpool take on Sevilla in the Europa League final this evening.

Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has sent his side a message on Instagram, ahead of the Europa League final against Sevilla.

Liverpool play the Spanish side in the Europa League final this evening in what is likely to be a fascinating clash.

Both sides are desperate for victory, as not only would it mean European success, but also a place in the Champions League next season.

The Reds head into the match as slight favourites given their run to the final but they will face a tough fight to secure the trophy.

It is the first time Liverpool have been in the final of this competition since their success in 2001, when it was the UEFA Cup, and Gerrard has reminded them of that success with his Instagram post.

Liverpool will certainly be confident of success in tonight’s final given the teams they have already beaten on the way, notably Borussia Dortmund.

Sevilla should not be taken lightly though, given they are the current holders having won it for the last two years.

However with Jurgen Klopp in charge, Liverpool are starting to believe anything is possible and they will be keen to ensure this is his first of many future successes.
