Anfield Watch Verdict
This current Liverpool side and the one who lost to Real Madrid in the 2018 Champions League final are two completely different sides.
Not just player-wise but mentality-wise. Since that game, we have been through so much as a club and we've come out of it with one of the best footballing sides ever.
Under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp, we have gone from an 8th placed team, struggling to make an impact, to a team challenging for the Premier League title and Champions League every season.
Thanks to his new four-year deal, it looks likely that Liverpool are going to continue this success for years to come.
Hopefully, we can kick off his new deal with a historic quadruple!
