Premier League fans at crossroads over support for Liverpool, Spurs in UCL final

Both Arsenal and Manchester United fans are divided on who to support in this year's edition of Champions League final.

This comes after rival clubs for the two sets of fans sealed a place in the finals of the European tournament.

Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are set to square it out at the finals of the competition slated for Saturday, June 1, at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid.

The two Premier League giants progressed to the last stage after completing stunning comebacks against their opponents in the semi-finals.

Liverpool hammered Barcelona 4-0 on Tuesday night, May 7, to qualify on a 4-3 aggregate, with Divock Origi and Georginio Wijnaldum doing the honours with two goals each.

Tottenham, on the other hand, overturned Ajax's three-goal advantage, with Lucas Moura's magnificent hat-trick sending them to the finals.

However, the scenario of having both Liverpool and Spurs gunning for European glory has left Arsenal and United supporters conflicted on who to back.

Given the rivalry between Liverpool and the Red Devils, most United fans will be rooting for Spurs, while Arsenal fans will be desperate for the Anfield outfit to win owing to their animosity with Tottenham.

United legend Gary Neville tweeted a photo of Tottenham's crest moments after their triumph with the caption: "They really deserve this trophy don't they."

The tweet generated divided opinion among his followers, with one conflicted supporter saying: "Man United and Arsenal fans. Look at what we've become."

Another added: "Man Utd fans are backing Spurs and Arsenal fans are back Liverpool for the final."

Another joked: "This is actually not a Liverpool Spurs Final. It’s Man Utd fans vs Arsenal fans. "
