Alan Sugar has claimed on Twitter that Tottenham Hotspur will win the Champions League, after Liverpool's stunning turnaround at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp's side beat Barcelona 4-0 on Merseyside to overturn the 3-0 deficit from the first leg.

Divock Origi opened and finished the scoring, either side of a quick-fire brace from Gini Wijnaldum in the second half.

Liverpool will play either Tottenham or Ajax in the final, with Spurs trailing 1-0 from the first leg ahead of tomorrow's clash in Amsterdam.


And the Lilywhites' former chairman Sugar says that Mauricio Pochettino's side will reign triumphant in Madrid on June 1.

After coming through this test tonight, the Reds won't fear Tottenham nor Ajax in the final.

It was one of the great European comebacks and there's no doubt that the manner of the victory will give them a huge amount of belief in the final.
