Former Liverpool player Graeme Souness has insisted that Liverpool will win 'with a bit of style' when they take on Spanish outfit Sevilla in the Europa League final on Wednesday. 

Souness believes Jurgen Klopp's side have the 'bit between their teeth' and will prove too much to handle for Sevilla. 

Liverpool, of course, have enjoyed a remarkable European run - they eliminated Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund and Villarreal en route to the final - and will believe that they can get over the line in Switzerland on Wednesday night.

Klopp's side may well have struggled to make an impact in the Premier League this term, but they are a completely different prospect in Europe. 

And Souness has insisted that there's only one winner when the two sides clash for the prestigious honour. 

Liverpool for the win

"I fancy Liverpool big time," Souness said, as per Sky Sports. "They've got the bit between their teeth.

"I think they will win it and they will win it with a bit of style - they'll have too much for Sevilla. I know they have done well in this competition, but in Spain you've got three big teams and beyond that you've got a lot of averageness.

"I just think Liverpool will have far too much for them on the night. They will go into the game with their tails up and full of confidence. While you would expect me to back Liverpool, I do try to step back from the association I have with the football club and - without being biased - I think there is only one winner."

Bright future 

Ahead of the showdown, the Sky Sports pundit has also hailed Reds boss Jurgen Klopp, claiming that he has got 'everyone excited' at Anfield. 

He continued by saying: "He's got everyone excited, everyone believing that the future is bright.

"If you come up with a formula where you can turf out the favourites Dortmund and turf out Villarreal, then it will be more of the same. I think they'll go for it, they've got some very good players, Liverpool. I think they'll have way too much for this team."

A victory for Liverpool will not only see them win the Europa League trophy but will land them a place in next season's Champions League competition.
