PHOTO: Firmino celebrates the equaliser.
DID YOU KNOW? Klopp has lost just two of his 15 European games while in charge at Anfield. Both were against Spanish opposition: Villarreal and Sevilla.
Karius plucks a Sevilla corner out of the air and Liverpool counter at speed once more. Mane is at the heart of it again, but his attempted give-and-go with Can fails when the Germna overhits the return out of play.
Coutinho out for the first of his warm ups. The Kop will be hoping to see his long-awaited return in the second half after the drama of his transfer request.

That was Firmino's fourth goal of the season.

Gomez hoists a high ball towards Can, but the German has too much to do and can only nod it behind for a goal kick.
Solid defending from Correa as Gomez threatened to wriggle free next to the right byline. One-way traffic since the goal.
Liverpool keep up the pressure until Firmino guides a header from a right-wing corner over the top. Good response to going behind from Klopp's charges.
SAVE! Rico gets down well to keep out Mane's first-time effort on the run after Salah's cut back from the right deflected into his path.
Mane bundled over surging towards the left side of the box - but the referee isn't interested. The Liverpool man was clearly barged off the ball. Strange.
Wijnaldum's speculative 25-yard strike takes a wicked deflection but flashes just wide of the near post with the keeper rooted to the spot. Almost an immediate response from the Reds.
- GoalWissam Ben YedderSevilla FC
GOAL! Lovren misses a low left-wing cross and it's gobbled up by Wissam Ben Yedder inside the six-yard box. Shocking start for the hosts.
Mane and Wijnaldum combine to tee up Henderson, but the skipper's guided attempt is well blocked.
STAT: Sevilla have only lost two of their last nine Champions League games (W5 D2).
No Nolito for Sevilla, but former Man City winger Jesus Navas is out there tonight. He played seven times against Liverpool for the Citizens - losing three out three at Anfield. He never netted against the Merseysiders but did help the Citizens win the League Cup at the expense of Jurgen Klopp's men.
Good industry down the left from Mane. It's worked back for Can who sees his curling 25-yard shot easily held.

"Excuse me Carra, I have a bone to pick with you...."
HEAD-TO-HEAD: This is only the second clash between the sides. The first was just last year in the Europa League final in Basel. Daniel Sturridge gave Liverpool a half-time lead, but the Spanish side hit back to win 3-1 and lift the trophy. Kevin Gameiro and a double from Coke were on target.
DID YOU KNOW? Only Marco Verratti (479) completed more passes than Sevilla midfielder Steven N'Zonzi (459) in last season's Champions League group stages.
Sevilla coach Eduardo Berizzo: "Players of a certain level and personality grow when they come to a stadium and atmosphere like this, they grow in strength. Few times in your career do you get to play in front of an atmosphere like this. I am confident the players in my squad are very brave and honest with lots of character and personality."
This chap also starts tonight. He will be hoping to banish the misery of his early bath at Man City and sign off prior to domestic suspension with a bang.
