Liverpool are gearing up to face Sevilla in the Europa League this evening and one man will most definitely be watching. 

Steven Gerrard, who departed Anfield at the end of last season, would no doubt have loved to lead his beloved club out in Switzerland this evening, but he will have to watch on as the Merseyside outfit attempt to overcome Spanish outfit Sevilla. 

Unsurprisingly, then, ahead of the big kick-off in Switzerland, the club's former captain has taken to social media.

Indeed, the LA Galaxy midfielder has uploaded a photo of himself lifting the old UEFA cup trophy and called on Liverpool to 'bring it home'. 

Gerrard, of course, secured the honour back in 2001 and will be hoping Jurgen Klopp's side get over the line tonight.

Sevilla record 

But it won't be easy for Liverpool to claim the trophy; Sevilla have a remarkable track record in the competition and are on course to win it for the third consecutive year. 

They may well have bowed out of the Champions League in the group stage, but they have the ultimate shot at redemption in Switzerland. 

Liverpool, on the other hand, will be in confident mood ahead of the showdown. Klopp's side, despite their poor league form, have been tremendous in Europe. 

They have already eliminated Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund and Villarreal en route to the final, so there's no reason why they won't be able to complete the job. 

Klopp's ready 

Reds chief Jurgen Klopp has already suggested that the players will become legends if they win the prize on offer. 

Speaking ahead of the game, as per Sky Sports, the German coach stated: "It is a wonderful story to tell your grandchildren when you are old about being a Liverpool legend.

"How it feels to be a Liverpool legend I have no idea - but it is one of the best things you can feel in football.

"You win it, you get the trophy, you are then a European champion and you have to work with it.

"You have to use the confidence in the right way. We are far away from the end of a development, this team is still developing."

Klopp has also insisted that he's not feeling the pressure ahead of the final.

He continued: "I don't feel the pressure, I feel opportunity. I cannot change.

"I don't think I've ever felt doubt around me. If that's right, I don't know, but it makes me completely free to make decisions and for my team and myself to be free to develop together.

"I am really pleased for the boys and that they can be part of the moment with this team."
