Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen feels there is "an amazing vibe" around Anfield following the club's Europa League adventure.

Jurgen Klopp's Reds booked a place in the final of the competition against Sevilla after beating their Primera Division rivals Villarreal 3-0 in the second leg of their semi-final clash.

An own goal from Bruno Soriano opened the scoring and further strikes from Daniel Sturridge and Adam Lallana sealed a comfortable 3-1 aggregate win.

Owen is confident good times are around the corner under German Klopp.

He told BT Sport Europe: "I mentioned that Barcelona and Real Madrid had scored three against them (Villarreal) but that not many other teams had this season but I knew Liverpool could do it, especially at Anfield and given the line-up Liverpool played.

"There's just an amazing vibe going around this place at the moment.

"Over the last few months we've really seen something special - such high energy levels, the pressing we all knew he (Jurgen Klopp) was going to bring over. But he's just improving players - the likes of Adam Lallana, (Simon) Mignolet and (Dejan) Lovren as well.

"Add a few players over the summer...and there's special times ahead.

"It's almost like they are unbeatable here (Anfield). It's becoming a fortress."

Fellow pundit Steve McManaman added: "The intensity was what we expected from this Liverpool side before the game, it really was.

"I said last week that I thought they would win the tie. I always felt Liverpool were a much better team than Villarreal.

"I didn't want to show disrespect to Villarreal as they did win the game last week but they were nowhere near as good as Manchester United or (Borussia) Dortmund and that's why I fully expected Liverpool to go out and, with the right attitude and the right firepower on the field, win the game quite comfortably. And they did."
