Tottenham striker Harry Kane has been named in the starting line-up for the Champions League final showdown with Liverpool.

The England international has not played since injuring his ankle in the first leg of the quarter-final with Manchester City in April, which Spurs won on away goals after a 4-4 aggregate draw.

Lucas Moura, whose hat-trick in the semi-final second leg against Ajax sent Spurs to Madrid, has been dropped to the bench.

Midfielder Harry Winks, who also last appeared in the 1-0 win over City in north London, is also in the starting XI.

Liverpool start with Roberto Firmino in attack after the Brazil forward was passed fully fit following a muscular problem.

Georginio Wijnaldum, one of the heroes of the semi-final comeback win over Barcelona at Anfield, is alongside Fabinho and Jordan Henderson in midfield.

Trent Alexander-Arnold becomes the first player under 21 years of age to start consecutive Champions League finals.
