We Owe Sevilla One For Europa League Final - Former Liverpool Striker

The best and worst of the 2017 Liverpool side were on show when they beat Hoffenheim in last month's play-off to reach the Champions League group stage. Sevilla are Liverpool's biggest rivals for top spot in what is an otherwise favourable group.

Liverpool do not have as good a record as they would want when hosting Spanish teams. Granted, a controversial red card for Sadio Mane did little to aid Liverpool's cause, though the manner in which the team capitulated from a defensive perspective will worry Klopp.

He was expected to part of Jurgen Klopp's squad to face Manchester City last weekend at the Etihad.

Liverpool's press is effective in terms of limiting shooting opportunities, but when teams are able to break through it, the chances they create are usually high-quality ones.

With that, Los Rojiblancos climb to third place, as they continued their unbeaten start to the season.

Major League Baseball schedule released: Opening day is March 29 for earliest start ever
The 2018 Major League Baseball season will begin on March 29, the earliest start in the sport's history excluding global openers. There are a handful of divisional matchups on Opening Day , including a potentially feisty Giants-Dodgers game in Los Angeles.

However, the Premier League side held firm and rebuffed all offers for their playmaker. His potential return to the starting lineup could move Georginio Wijnaldum to the bench, though Coutinho is unlikely to last the full 90 minutes in his first match back. The midfield should be unchanged from the City game, but Milner and Lovren could start in defence after Saturday's hammering.

After a summer of persistent transfer speculation, the midfielder is set to make his first appearance of the campaign for the Reds.

The Frenchman picked up an assist, so I can see Berizzo giving the full-back a start. "I would like to win that game!" Now he has had the game it has helped him a lot and us also.

On the other wing is Nolito, who is also a threat cutting in from the left, as Eibar found out on Saturday. But those who do remain at least know that they are capable of beating a Liverpool side coached by Klopp.

Philippe Coutinho is "fit and healthy" ahead of Liverpool's opening Champions League match against Sevilla, confirms Jurgen Klopp.
