Sevilla coach Unai Emery is looking to write his name into the history books by masterminding another European success and will hope striker Kevin Gameiro can continue his stunning form.

Gameiro has played a part in nine of Sevilla’s 14 goals in this season’s competition, scoring seven and setting up two.

“Playing in all these finals and winning these titles generated a lot of emotion which makes this a very special time to be at Sevilla,” Emery told Uefa.

“Sevilla are a historic club and have always had good spells, but this period we’re going through right now is full of joy and passion that stem from playing in those finals and winning the titles.

“Sevilla care about this competition. You have to come up with the goods and rise to the challenge to go a long way in this competition. The fact that this is our third consecutive final demonstrates how focused and hungry we have been to do well in the Europa League, and win it.

“It’s a challenge [to face Liverpool], in the sense of having to face big opponents with a distinguished history, and who currently have a lot of momentum in this competition – which also represents a route into next season’s Champions League.

“There will certainly be a lot of [Liverpool] fans at the final. What motivates us the most is to play a great match against a big team and achieve our objective of winning.”

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson (knee) came off the bench to return from over five weeks out against West Brom on Sunday and Klopp is hoping Divock Origi (ankle) will be passed fit, but Mamadou Sakho is suspended.

Sevilla have been without Michael Krohn-Dehli (knee) and Jose Antonio Reyes (appendix) since April.
