Liverpool paid a heavy price for a first-half penalty miss as Sevilla grabbed a late equaliser.

Liverpool were defensively suspect last season, and those difficulties have continued into the new campaign. They can play the game even better.

It's like seeing fish in the sea, you don't question it, it's just how things are meant to be.

Tottenham Hotspur are predicted to miss out to Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund in Group H.

The official site of the Liverpool Club on that occasion highlighted the facts and statistics concerning the match between Liverpool and Sevilla, which reveal the superiority of the Andalucian team on the Reds and coach Juergen Club.

In a statement late last night, Klopp admitted he consulted with the club's medical team to find the best solution to facing the sore throat experienced by Salah. All those opponents are beatable and they should have additional motivation to win this first game against Sevilla at Anfield.

Gracenote believes Arsenal (96%) are the side most likely to progress to the Europa League knockout stages, closely followed by Athletic Bilbao, Villarreal and Dynamo Kiev. Moreno gets forward well, but defensively, he is a liability.

Coutinho, who has played twice for Brazil, has been unavailable with what Liverpool said was a back problem.

Then came a mistake by Joel Matip in the closing stages, when he lost possession on the touchline only to see Sevilla fail to take advantage.

Liverpool still lacks that powerhouse leader at the back, the decisive voice, the talisman who will put his head in where it hurts. "Nothing that happened on Saturday will stop us".

Having been given just over 15 minutes to make a difference with the score at 2-2, Coutinho struggled to make any real impact.

Prior to that, Firmino's goal meant he became the sixth player to score on his Champions League debut for Liverpool. Sevilla coach Eduardo Berizzo had earlier been sent to the stands by Dutch referee Danny Makkelie in the 60th after preventing Gomez from taking a quick throw, and gestured to counterpart Juergen Klopp while being led away.
