Liverpool dominate Mourinho's team of the Champions League

Funnily enough, no Manchester United players made the cut.

Jose Mourinho has named six Liverpool players in his Champions League team of the season.

Mourinho, who won the competition with Porto in 2004 and Inter Milan six years later, was asked to pick a best eleven from this season's campaign for beIN Sport.

Unsurprisingly, his team was dominated by the eventual winners, who saw off Tottenham in Saturday's final in Madrid to claim the club's sixth European Cup.

 Goalkeeper Alisson was joined by defenders Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil Van Dijk and Andrew Robertson in Mourinho's XI. He also opted for Mo Salah and Sadio Mane in two of the more advanced positions.

Christian Eriksen was the only representative from beaten finalists Spurs, while Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Ajax trio Matthijs De Ligt, Frenkie De Jong and Donny van de Beek complete the line-up.

Earlier in the competition, the former Chelsea manager was able to steer Manchester United through the group stages - their passage secured with a late Marouane Fellaini winner against Swiss champions Young Boys of Bern.

Mourinho (and Fellaini) were no longer at the club by the time they faced Paris Saint-Germain in the last 16 stage.
