Boss Berizzo backs Sevilla players to relish playing at Anfield

'I think they have enough to get through the group, but in the later stages against Real Madrid and all these boys, they will be laughing at Liverpool'.

The German's inclusion in the match against the former Europa League champions more or less confirms that teammate Mignolet will be Klopp's first choice for domestic fixtures, while Karius will be relied on for the Reds' continental business. "Liverpool are a great team and Saturday's defeat doesn't take anything away from them", he said.

Liverpool responded well despite going behind, and Roberto Firmino was the man to put his side back on track.

However, Sevilla managed to secure a point thanks to Joaquin Correa's composed finish.

The Merseyside outfit responded through Roberto Firmino after good work from Jordan Henderson and Moreno in the lead up to the goal.

Football is, as they say, a amusing old game.

The Reds had 24 shots in total, with seven on target. Clarets striker Chris Wood, who has scored two in two since arriving from Leeds, is available at 18/5 odds.

5' - GOAL! Liverpool 0-1 Sevilla.

Indians Tie 1935 Cubs' Streak Record With 21st Straight Win
The longest streak in all of baseball belongs to the 1916 New York Giants at 26 games in a row, but that was pre-live ball era. The half-shrugged, matter-of-fact dismissal of all things streak-related is straight out of the Terry Francona playbook.

Surprisingly, both clubs are level on points and Sean Dyche's side find themselves ahead of the Reds in the league table on goal difference.

Mane won it, with there being no argument from the Sevilla players as Pareja seemingly handled in the area, before then grappling and tripping the winger, the offences for which the penalty was finally given.

However, the second goal did not take too long to come, Salah winning the ball back on the edge of the box in a challenge with Steven N'Zonzi, before firing a low shot which deflected off Kjaer's boot past Rico.

Still, Liverpool went into the break having completed a turnaround and things weren't getting much better for Sevilla as the referee sent off their manager in the opening exchanges of the second-half.

Sevilla suffered more misery in the second half, coach Eduardo Berizzo sent off after twice throwing the ball away when it had gone out of touch for a throw.

This was comically reminiscent of when Rafa Benitez used to sub off his best attackers when chasing a game because of fatigue or some other such nonsense.

Klopp immediately introduced Coutinho from the bench to a largely warm reception from the home fans, but the Brazilian could not conjure any late magic to give Liverpool a win.
