Liverpool managed to produce an outstanding display to help them beat Villarreal and secure a place in the Europa League final.
Again they will have to face Spanish opposition in Sevilla, but they will take confidence in the way they brush aside Villareal to win the game 3-0.
The game started well for Liverpool after Bruno Soriano scored an own goal to put the game leveled on aggregate. It all began with a Clyne cross that found Firmino. The latter headed the ball back into the danger area, but it was missed by Sturridge who was starting the game after having missed the first leg
. Soriano could not clear the danger and instead bundled the ball in the back of his own net.
Liverpool were on fire after the goal and conceded to press for a second goal. The visitors could not cope with the intense pressure by Liverpool, which have become their trademark under Jurgen Klopp. Villareal could not cope with the intensity shown by the locals and began to grow frustrated.
Soldado was guilty of fouling two Liverpool players in the space of a few minutes. First, it will be DejanLovren who will face a tough challenge from the former Tottenham player and then it was Coutinho. This was clearly signs of frustration as the Spanish team failed to cope with the pressure of the home side.
Sturridge managed to score a goal in the 63rd minute following a precise through ball from Firmino. This was a well-deserved goal for Sturridge, who was back in the team.
However in the 71st minute, Villareal will have a player sent off because of a second bookable offence. This will definitely end the match as a contest and Lallana will score another goal for Liverpool to secure the victory.
