As hundreds of Liverpool fans continue their epic journeys across Europe, several thousands more sit at home just waiting for kick off on Wednesday evening. There's some real final fever in the air for Reds all over the world and while rivals will be quick to highlight the fact that it's "only the Europa League" they will have to do way more than that to throw Kopites off the party train.

Well, that's another season almost over for Liverpool and it's been a rather eventful one to say the least. With Brendan Rodgers losing his job after the Merseyside derby in October and quickly being replaced by Jurgen Klopp just a couple of weeks later, it's safe to say that the season has been a transitional one for the Reds.

Liverpool are 2-0 up in this Europa League tie thanks to goals from Daniel Sturridge and Roberto Firmino and it looks like a long way back for Louis van Gaal who was forced to watch a very ineffective Manchester United at Anfield last week.
