The Reds produced one of their sloppiest displays of the campaign, but they still had enough in the tank after a three-week rest to overcome their domestic rivals.
Here, Sports Mole rates the performances of Jurgen Klopp's players from the clash at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Alisson Becker: Became increasingly more involved in the game as it went on, producing good saves - but nothing extraordinary - to keep out Lucas Moura, Christian Eriksen, Son Heung-min and Harry Kane in the second half. (8/10)
Trent Alexander-Arnold: Became the first player aged under 21 to start successive European Cup finals and gave another good account of himself by producing a number of good crosses and coming close through a long-ranger. (8/10)
Virgil van Dijk: Was not his usual self in the first half as a couple of clearances and passes went astray, though he ultimately won his battle with Kane, Son and Lucas to keep another clean sheet. (7/10)
Andy Robertson: Like Alexander-Arnold down the other flank, he provided an attacking threat out wide whenever Liverpool got forward and was arguably his side's best player, coming close through a fine strike that forced Hugo Lloris into a fingertip save. (8/10)
Jordan Henderson: Joins an elite list of players to have skippered Liverpool to European glory. His best moment of the match arrived less than 30 seconds in as his through-ball led to the penalty.(6/10)
Fabinho: Was below-par for most of the night as Liverpool struggled to keep hold of the ball, but Tottenham were unable to take advantage. (6/10)
Georginio Wijnaldum: The Reds completed fewer passes in the first half than any other game this term and it was no surprise to see the midfielder replaced with an hour played. (5/10)
Mohamed Salah: Enjoyed a far more positive final compared to 12 months ago when limping off against Real Madrid. Converted his penalty but that aside he was not really much of a threat. (7/10)
Roberto Firmino: Well off his usual levels, which is not surprising considering he has missed more than a month through injury. Was replaced early in the second half and the man who took over from him, Origi, made far more of an impact. (5/10)
Sadio Mane: Won the penalty for his side that set Liverpool on their way and provided a number of positive runs across the 90 minutes, without getting any further rewards.(7/10)
Divock Origi: The hero from the semi-finals will now go down in Liverpool folklore after settling his side's nerves with a crisp finish past Lloris for Liverpool's second. Talk about making an impact! (8/10)
James Milner: Provided some fresh legs in midfield and nearly scored with the game tightly poised, sending his shot inches wide from 10 yards. (7/10)
Joe Gomez: Came on for Mane with seconds remaining to help Liverpool see out the game, which is exactly what he did. (7/10)
