Two Leeds academy players in the CL final! Thought that wouldn’t happen for a couple of seasons yet.— Tiddy (@PureLeeds) May 8, 2019
Both Milner and Rose could well start in the Champions League final for their respective sides.
Rose will almost certainly be given the nod by Mauricio Pochettino to start at left-back for Tottenham.
Milner’s place in Liverpool’s team is less certain, but he will definitely be in their match day squad in Madrid.
Tottenham beat Ajax to progress to the final, while Liverpool got past Barcelona.
