Liverpool match-winner Divock Origi
It was more about the team. We did so well. We knew it would be a special night. We wanted to fight for the injured guys. We fought so hard.

Unbelievable. After the game in Spain, we were confident we could score four and win 4-0. People outside doubted us and thought we couldn't do it. But once again we showed everything is possible in football. I was really angry that the manager put me on the bench. I just tried to help my team, I'm happy I could do that with two goals.

Unbelievable. I don't think many people gave us a chance. We knew it would be difficult but still possible. The belief we have in the changing room is amazing. We knew we could do something special at Anfield. Look at the fans and the lads – this is a special night. This is up there with the best.

We wanted to start fast. We got an early goal which helped. It wasn't just the goal, it was getting after them and putting them under pressure. We knew if we showed personality and heart then we'd have a chance.

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 [the final day of the Premier League season on] Sunday full of energy. It's out of our hands, but we've seen stranger things happen. Especially tonight.

It was just instinct; you see the opportunity. Gini is a top player, he scored two goals. Everyone will remember this moment.

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp
The whole performance, the whole game was actually too much. It was overwhelming. I said to the boys before the game that it was impossible, but because it was them, they had a chance. I've watched so many games in my life but I can't remember any games like this. We played against the best team in the world, we weren't allowed to concede and we had to score. Winning was already difficult, but doing it without conceding – I don't know how. These boys are incredible.

James Milner crying on the pitch at the end, it means so much to all of us. It's the best phase of football. This kind of atmosphere is so special. The mix of potential and unbelievable heart is just a mix I've never seen before. In a game like this you have to be really confident. Origi and Shaq didn't play a lot, so putting in a performance like this was so important to us and them. It really shows what's possible in football: getting out of a non-situation, it's really nice.

The goalkeeper made all these saves; it's a real strength. There are more spectacular goalkeepers out there, but he was always getting his body behind the ball. I don't know how he does it.
