A extremely professional display from Liverpool saw them clinch their sixth European crown in a Champions League final that used up most of its drama within the first minute.

Mohamed Salah fittingly dispatched a penalty – from a contentious Moussa Sissoko handball – in the Spanish capital, helping to banish painful memories of last year’s defeat to Real Madrid.

Tottenham were never truly in it as a superb Liverpool rearguard bottled up the Spurs attack, before the Reds’ super sub Divock Origi fired home late on to take the club’s remarkable European record to even greater heights.

Here are our Liverpool ratings …

TOTTENHAM (4-2-3-1)

Hugo Lloris – Could have saved the penalty, generous height and right by his hand. Problems went far deeper than him, though 5

Kieran Trippier – Can finally say goodbye to a personally poor season. Out of position numerous times, as were his crosses 3

Jan Vertonghen – Went down early on with elbow injury. His calamitous header in danger area led to Origi goal 5

Toby Alderweireld – Could have got far tighter for second goal. Sluggish passing from back did not help Spurs one bit 5

Danny Rose – Quietly enhanced his reputation as one of the best left-backs in Europe. Wasn’t much invention in front of him 7

Harry Winks – Saw a lot of the ball and was tidy with it, but Spurs needed a more dynamic player to help break Reds down 6

Moussa Sissoko – Does he have a right to feel aggrieved? Maybe. But in the box, arm outstretched … just don’t do it 5

Dele Alli – The Dele who took games by the scruff of his neck has disappeared over the last 18 months. Will we see him again? 5

Christian Eriksen – Spurs were crying out for his magic with Liverpool so disciplined. One decent free-kick all to show for it 5

Son Heung-min – Strange game. At the centre of most Spurs attacks, for better or for worse. Better in second half 6

Harry Kane – Whether it was defensive brilliance or not, a bottled-up Kane wasn’t anywhere near his sharpest 4

SUBSTITUTES

Lucas Moura (66′) – Should have started in hindsight, but didn’t light the Wanda on fire during his 25-minute cameo 6

Eric Dier (74′) – Desperately poor clearance alongside Vertonghen error handed Origi the chance to clinch it 5

Fernando Llorente (82′) – Afforded very little time to assert his physicality up top N/A
