Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has made a big claim on the Merseyside outfit Liverpool home ground after the stunning comeback by the Reds team on Tuesday night.

Following a 3-0 defeat at the Camp Nuo in the first leg of the semi-finals, Liverpool welcomed the Spanish La Liga giants to the Anfield to turn the table around by producing a 4-0 win and their second consecutive Champions League finals.

Two goals were scored by Divock Origi in either half and another brace from supersub Georginio Wijnaldum sealed just that in what has been dubbed Anfield’s greatest European night.

However, former Arsenal manager seems to be the only one not surprised by the outcome of the result as he noted that it was greatly influenced by the fact that it was played at the Anfield.

According to him, nothing is impossible at the Anfield and that is the reason why it is the most hated home ground in Europe, especially if it is a return game as he stressed that it there is a special feeling and atmosphere associated with the home ground.

Meanwhile, Liverpool still have a game left in the English Premier League against Wolves to wrap up the season as they hope Man City drops at least a point in their last game as well.

The Reds team lost in the Champions League finals last season and will be hoping to make it up for their fans big-time.
