Coutinho on the bench, Salah starts against Sevilla

Liverpool look to avenge Basel as Sevilla visit Anfield

Liverpool were heavily linked with Southampton centre-back Virgil van Dijk throughout the summer, although Klopp was eventually forced to abandon a move for the Netherlands worldwide after the Saints accused the Reds of making an illegal approach for the player.

After coming from a goal behind to lead 2-1, Roberto Firmino missed an opportunity to extend the team's advantage from the penalty spot before the La Liga side capitalised on slack play from the hosts late on to equalise.

"It's hard to say (what the problem is)". "We need to learn to be dominant and not give easy goals".

Loris Karius feels Liverpool's dominance against Sevilla fully merited all three points on Wednesday night, but admits that sometimes things work against you.

It's the Group E opening game of the Champions League between five-time European Cup winners Liverpool and Sevilla who happened to beat Jürgen Klopp's side in their previous meeting in the 2016 Europa League final.

"However, in the second half when a similar thing took place, the ball came to me and we were losing and chasing the game, I still made a decision to throw the ball away to try and make up what I had done in the first half".

"They think I had something to do with the red card of my colleague".

Lovren has found himself in and out of the side as Klopp searches for a reliable combination of central defenders.

"I don't think it's an old school view, I think it's a very common view".

"They were lucky with the penalty for sure, maybe a second penalty [was] possible, [but] we had more chances and that's important that we have chances, that we create". "They got us twice on a bit of a counter-attack". It's up to the manager anyway, you don't decide yourself as a player.

Klopp insisted that if Liverpool are going to improve their defensive record it needs to be a collective effort. You could construe both as unsportsmanlike, but I was trying to make up for it.
