Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has managed to put a downer on Liverpool's long-awaited return to Champions League football by reportedly deciding to field keeper Loris Karius ahead of Simon Mignolet. Only last weekend, Liverpool was thrashed 5-0 by Manchester City in the Premier League and the failure to sign a high-quality center back, such as Southampton's Virgil van Dijk, in the summer transfer window may turn out to be costly.
Winger Mohamed Salah was among those who arrived at Anfield on Wednesday lunchtime despite sitting out Tuesday's training session as a precaution because of illness.
Here are three thoughts from Liverpool's 2-2 Champions League draw with Sevilla at Anfield.
For their second, Liverpool were slow to react to a quick throw as former Blackburn midfielder Steven N'Zonzi - an imposing presence for the away side - slipped the ball to Correa, who broke through Liverpool's central defence and stroked in.
Klopp and Berizzo said they settled their differences in the dressing room after the match. They could have killed the game off early on. But for their forwards, Liverpool would be beaten by the first strong team they face in the Champions League, but with such attacking qualities, they will always have a chance - if the back four can avoid a bad night.
"I prefer having a group of good goalkeepers and that means you have to change things".
"A few players could not keep the level of the first half". I don't know - it's nothing I can think about too much'.
However, Klopp is well aware of the threat posed by Sevilla, now third in La Liga following an unbeaten first three matches, after the 2016 Basle final, which they won 3-1.
Elsewhere Spartak Moscow and Maribor also played out a draw to leave all Group E sides on one point.
