"I can now say I know the two sides", Moura added.

Normally a left-sided centre-back, Vertonghen can also play as a left-back and even excelled as left wing-back during Tottenham's 3-0 win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League last 16. "Obviously, you play a final to win it and we're preparing to win it".

He said: "He's one of the best in the world, without a doubt".

The thing is, often now you find that the players who start on either side of the defence are better going forward than they are defensively.

Klopp will aim to win his first title in charge of Liverpool against Spurs at the Metropolitano, after leading the club to second place in the Premier League - the highest ever points tally for a runner-up in any of Europe's top five leagues.

"One of Liverpool's biggest strengths is the full-backs and the way they attack, it's also one of their biggest weaknesses", Mills told Football Insider.

Tottenham meanwhile can be expected to try and play on the break, looking for long balls for Maura and Son to chase down and to exploit any space behind the Liverpool defense.

"I don't think that way at all", he said earlier this month. "Such a literate and passionate fan base that when you watch what goes on at Anfield it makes you want to root for this club".

The Belgian global has to help marshal the defence and ensure that they avoid conceding silly goals that are totally preventable, something they were unable to do in their two Premier League games against Liverpool this season.

"The players that we have acquired over the last couple of years have also been a ideal match".

Considerably more than the 32,000 ticket-holding fans were predicted to descend on Madrid, with police deploying "unprecedented security" around the final, involving drones to monitor behaviour and 4,700 personnel.

Unlike several teammates, Robertson is unconvinced the manner of defeat by Real Madrid a year ago will provide added motivation or an invaluable experience in the Spanish capital.

"Not winning the Premier League this year means it's an even larger goal for next year".

Imperious in the air, cool in the tackle and confident in possession, Van Dijk has faced Tottenham three times since making the switch to Liverpool last season and has never lost - winning twice and drawing once.
