Joe Gomez has warned Tottenham Hotspur that Liverpool FC are in a “different place” to where they were last season as they head into their second successive Champions League final.

The Reds are preparing to take on the Lilywhites in Madrid on 1 June as they look to win their first major trophy since Jurgen Klopp’s appointment back in 2015.

Liverpool FC have earned plenty of praise for their attacking football this season but they are yet to win silverware after having finished a point behind Manchester City in the race for the Premier League title.

The Merseyside outfit booked their spot in the Champions League final thanks to their thrilling 4-3 comeback win over FC Barcelona in the semi-finals.

Spurs are competing in their first ever Champions League final and sealed their spot in the showdown in equally impressive fashion thanks to their dramatic win over Ajax.

Gomez feels that Liverpool FC have gone up a level since last year’s 3-1 defeat by Real Madrid in the final and seems to be in confident mood ahead of the clash in Madrid.

Speaking in an interview with Liverpool FC’s website, Gomez said: “I definitely think we go into this final in a different place.

“It’s still a Champions League final and they’re always separate occasions and you have to approach it with the same mentality.

“But I think this year speaks for itself and the growth in the team has been massive.

“[The manager] shows and emphasises the fact that we’re a different team and we can’t go into thinking that we’re the same team.

“In that sense, we can take the confidence from that, but still have the desire to win one because we know what it means for this club and we want to get the sixth star.”

Liverpool FC brought in Klopp as Brendan Rodgers’ permanent successor back in 2015.
