Liverpool duo Wijnaldum, Alexander-Arnold nominated for Champions League award

Liverpool duo Trent Alexander-Arnold and Gini Wijnaldum were recognised by UEFA for their heroics against Barcelona.

The two are up for the Champions League Player of the Week award after the 4-0 win that sent the team into the final.

The Reds overcame a 3-0 deficit from the first leg, despite being without Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

Two others up for the award are Lucas Moura and Moussa Sissoko from Tottenham, who also completed a late comeback to book their ticket to the final.

The two English sides will face off in the showpiece event on the 1st of June.
