Jordan Henderson: Roberto Firmino not at fault for draw after penalty miss

Some of the attacking displays under Brendan Rodgers and Jurgen Klopp have been nothing short of breath taking, although the Reds' defensive displays have often been breath taking for quite the opposite reasons.

"We had answers for everything apart from the goals".

Joaquin Correa then grabbed a late equaliser for the visitors.

Salah put Liverpool ahead with a heavily deflected 25-yard shot after the winger had dispossessed Sevilla midfielder Steven N'Zonzi and Firmino could have extended the lead just before half-time, but fired his spot-kick against the post. "At the end of the season he will have played 85% to 87% of games".

And the flaws were glaring.

Klopp and Berizzo said they settled their differences in the dressing room after the match. Firmino headed just over before grabbing Liverpool's equalizer on 21 minutes with a tap-in following good work from Alberto Moreno. But Liverpool, playing in only their second Champions League group phase in eight years, responded positively. It was again poor decision-making and concentration.

Captain Jordan Henderson admits Liverpool have to learn lessons from their Champions League disappointment against Sevilla to avoid problems further down the line.

Kohli a better limited over batsman than Smith: Clarke
India and Australia would be considering this series to be a precursor for their preparations for the 2019 World Cup in England. As far as captaincy is concerned, it is very even at this stage. "The way Kohli leads the team, he is positive and proactive".

"I still think we could have strengthened, without a doubt", Thompson told Sky Sports earlier this week.

Sevilla scored from their first effort on goal when Dejan Lovren failed to deal with Sergio Escudero's cross from the left and Ben Yedder tapped home from close range.

On the final whistle, members of Berizzo's staff appeared to remonstrate with Klopp as the two benches walked down the tunnel.

"After the game, it's hard to say how we didn't win it".

"I wonder if the manager is sitting there this morning thinking, 'is my back-four good enough to go where I want to go with this team?'"

Philippe Coutinho is set to start his first Liverpool game since trying to engineer a move to Barcelona when the Reds take on Burnley on Saturday, according to his coach Jurgen Klopp.
