The two sides lock horns after an epic, intense tournament.

It has been a long time, since two English teams faced each other in a UCL final. The last time it happened, Manchester United beat Chelsea, 6-5, on penalties to win their most recent Champions League title.

Come 2nd June, it will be Tottenham Hotspur meeting Liverpool, in Madrid. The two teams have had journeys full of upheavals and roller coaster rides. Tottenham Hotspur, particularly, survived the elimination quite a few times, to get to their first ever Champions League final.

The two sides aren’t squads with a lot of depth or quality, other than the ones who play in the starting XI, they still possess some world winners in Harry Kane, Mohamed Salah, Christian Eriksen, Sadio Mane, and others. We at Khel Now take a look at the two sides’ player market values.

World Cup winner, Hugo Lloris dons the goalkeeper’s jersey for Tottenham Hotspur. Lloris, a highly underrated goalkeeper with a market value of just £27.00m, carried his team single-handedly in a number of games this season in the Champions League.

The French shot-stopper has Argentine Paulo Gazzaniga and Netherlands’ Micheal Vorm as his deputies at the club. They both are rated at £1.80m.

Liverpool, meanwhile, have bought themselves a gem in Alisson Becker from AS Roma. The former Roma man had the most cleansheets this season in the Premier League, 21 to be precise, and is the joint fourth-highest valued goalkeeper in the world with a market value of £58.50m.

Filling in the boots of the Brazilian during his absence this season has been former Liverpool’s first choice keeper Simon Mignolet. He’s rated at £7.2m.

MARKET VALUES – Defenders

Mauricio Pochhetino plays a three-man central defence usually, consisting of £40.50m rated Davinson Sanchez, £36.00m rated Toby Alderweireld and £27m rated Jan Vertonghen. 

£22.50m valued Danny Rose and £31.50m valued Kieran Trippier guide the flanks for the former Espanyol coach.

The likes of Juan Foyth, Ben Davies, Serge Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters complete the defender’s list for the club from London.

Another big signing for Liverpool, has been Virgil Van Dijk. Van Dijk has provided performances second to none and has run the show for the Reds, alongside the young talented Joe Gomez. The two are rated to be worth £67.50m and £31.50m worth respectively.

Andrew Robertson has been the best left-back of the Premier League this season, and he is rated at £45m. The other fullback for the Reds was also the one who provided for the decisive goal showing a great presence of mind against Barcelona, Trent Alexander Arnold. The 20-year-old also is rated at £45.00m.

Joel Matip has also heavily featured for the Reds, often taking the position of Joe Gomez in the backline.

MARKET VALUES – Midfielders

The four starting midfielders for Tottenham Hotspur are Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli, Victor Wanyama and Moussa Sissoko.

Eriksen is said to be joining Real Madrid this summer and has reportedly agreed on personal terms with Los Blancos. The £76.50m rated player would be leaving for nothing short of £130m. The highest rated midfielder though is the £90.00m rated Dele Alli.

Crunch players like Eric Dier and Harry Winks have also chipped in when needed throughout the Champions League season, thanks to injuries and suspensions of Wanyama and Sissoko.

Liverpool’s mid-season midfield problems were solved by the trio of Fabinho and Naby Keita. Otherwise, a typical Liverpool midfield this has been featuring £13.50m rated James Milner, £36.00m rated and semifinals hero Georginio Wijnaldum and £25.20m valued club captain Jordon Henderson.

Naby Keita joined the Reds from RB Leipzig whereas Fabinho joined from Monaco this summer.

MARKET VALUES – Attackers

When fit, Kane plays as the striker and when not, makes way for a double striker partnership between the semifinals’ hattrick hero Lucas Moura and the quarterfinals’ hattrick hero Heung-Min Son.

Kane is the highest rated player of his side, with a net worth of whopping £135m and Son is rated as worth £58.50m. Former Los Blancos player and £3.15m rated Fernando Llorente have also chipped in with a goal when it was needed the most, against Manchester City in the second leg.

Mohamed Salah is the joint highest valued player of the game and the fourth highest overall along with Harry Kane and forms a formidable front-three with £76.50m worth Sadio Mane and £72.00m worth Roberto Firmino.

Both Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane have been in scintillating scoring form this season, finishing as the top scorer of Premier League together after scoring 22 goals each.

Liverpool also possesses £22.50m valued Xhedran Shaqiri, who was signed from Stoke City and the forward who is perhaps hated the most in Catalunya, £9.00m valued Divock Origi. Origi has scored some crucial goals for the Reds this season.
