What's the news?

Liverpool star Andrew Robertson delivered a cheeky response when asked about Luis Suarez's challenge after Liverpool's win against Barcelona.

In case you didn't know...

Liverpool inflicted a crushing 4-0 defeat to Barcelona to qualify for the Champions League finals for the second year in a row. Both Gini Wijnaldum and Divock Origi netted two goals to help the Reds pull off one of the greatest comebacks in the Champions League history.

Meanwhile, Barcelona failed to reach the Champions League final for four years in a row. The Catalan giants blew up a three-goal lead against Roma in the Quarter Final stages last year and they failed to protect their advantage from the first leg yet again.

Liverpool defenders gave a majestic performance to contain Blaugrana forwards Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez. Robertson was a part of The Reds' rearguard but the left-back was subbed off during the half time after an off the ball clash with former Liverpool striker Suarez. Replays clearly show how Suarez ended Robertson's night with a foul challenge.

The Reds are enjoying one of their best campaigns in recent years as they are second in the Premier League table, just a point behind table-toppers Manchester City.

The heart of the matter

Robertson had the last laugh after Gini Wijnaldum helped Liverpool pull off a stunning comeback. The left-back left a cheeky response when he was asked about Suarez's challenge.

Speaking to BT sport, Robertson said:

"Who’s going to the final? We are. That’s all that matters. Gini went on [for me] and scored two. I don’t care right now."
"I’ve said so many times this season but what a team. We believe. People wrote us off. But we believed if we got off to a good start we could do it."
"Alisson has pulled off some unbelievable saves. Fingers crossed. We go to Sunday full of energy. It’s out of our hands but we’ve seen stranger things happen. Especially tonight."

What's next?

Liverpool will face Wolves in their last Premier League match of the current campaign.
