Trent-Alexander Arnold and Loris Karius were singled out for their performances at the Stadio Olimpico.

If you look at Liverpool tonight, the young right-back had a nightmare and the goalkeeper was poor -Roy Keane

“Obviously it’s slightly different in the final – over the two legs there’s maybe different mentalities.

Roy Keane believes Real Madrid will target two Liverpool stars

“Real Madrid will be rubbing their hands as much as Liverpool will be – that’s why it’s such an intriguing game.”

Alexander-Arnold has enjoyed a solid breakthrough season at Anfield, keeping the fit-again Nathaniel Clyne out of the side in recent months.

As for Karius, he has made the No 1 jersey his at Liverpool this term.

But the German is still frequently criticised for his lack of consistency in between the sticks.
