That speed has certainly caught Liverpool fans off-guard but has got them excited that the rampage into Saturday’s showpiece in Kiev is just the start of a successful era under Klopp at Anfield, and not a one-off, as good as it gets occasion.

The nature of the capture, the man coming in and its proximity to a night of huge disappointed have got Liverpool fans very excited and some are calling on Klopp to make Lyon’s Nabil Fekir the next man through the door as the Reds set about closing the gap on Manchester City in the Premier League.
