Jurgen Klopp explains Sevilla row and why it's now forgotten

Philippe Coutinho gets a soaking as he arrives at Anfield for Liverpool's Champions League opener against Sevilla- their first match in the competition since 2014

Philippe Coutinho gets a soaking as he arrives at Anfield for Liverpool's Champions League opener against Sevilla- their first match in the competition since 2014

But Sevilla scored with 20 minutes remaining and Joe Gomez was sent off at the very death, forcing the hosts to settle for a point.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has told the club's website that Philippe Coutinho's performance last night was a positive in the long term.

All four sides in Group E are level after the opening round of matches, as Maribor played out a 1-1 draw with Spartak Moscow in Slovenia. It was no secret that Klopp made trying to sign Virgil Van Dijk from Southampton one of his priorities in the summer, but after the public embarrassment of having to withdraw his interest it was odd that the Reds boss didn't line up another defender.

Henderson struggled to stamp his authority in the middle of the park and his passing became rushed during a hard second-half.

"But you were talking about Moreno, Rio, the left-back".

Liverpool (possible starting XI): Mignolet; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Klavan, Moreno; Henderson, Can, Wijnaldum; Salah, Mane, Firmino.

Even though the reds brought on Coutinho, Sturridge and a very late arrival for Oxlade-Chamberlain they couldn't get the victor.

Liverpool took on Sevilla in their Champions League opener in what turned out to be an entertaining game. Firmino stood up to take the penalty, he went to the opposite side of Rico but only found the post.

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has been the target of fans and the media for his disappointing play since arriving at Anfield a few seasons ago.

Steven Gerrard believes that Liverpool have been in "unbelievable" form going forwards but are still weak in defence this season.

"He has a little bit of a sore throat". Firmino had the chance to double his tally for the night but the Brazil global struck the post, missing the opportunity to give his side some breathing space. Odds for a draw are 4.20, but expect Liverpool to handle Sevilla. Substitute Luis Muriel fed Correa, who was granted a free path through the Liverpool defence to curl a good finish past Loris Karius from just inside the area.
