Champions League to test Klopp's progress at Liverpool

Champions League to test Klopp's progress at Liverpool

"They want the three points just as much as we do", he said.

Yet the big concern must be that the defensive issues from two seasons ago have yet to be solved a couple of seasons later and it is a major concern heading into this Champions League campaign.

It is now the turn of Jurgen Klopp, the charismatic, affable German, to lead Liverpool onto Europe's biggest stage. It should be noted that they played with a man less for an hour away from home. Liverpool matched toe-to-toe with City until Sadio Mane was sent off, and they simply couldn't adjust to play with 10 men after the break.

Philippe Coutinho has arrived at Anfield as he prepares to make his much-anticipated return to Liverpool's matchday squad on Wednesday.

Liverpool also reached the EFL Cup semi-final last season, but were beaten over two legs by Southampton, who went on to lose the final to Manchester United.

In spite of initial fears that the illness suffered by Salah could keep him out of Liverpool's first Champions League group encounter since 2014, manager Jurgen Klopp was quick to play down the issue in Tuesday's press conference.

The Reds are returning to the continent's top club competition after a three-year absence, but they face a stiff test against a team who have started well in La Liga. The spectacular way he plays lends itself to something happening, but it also he also imparts on a game in such a way that he never seems 100 per cent in control.

The last time that Liverpool and Sevilla faced-off was in the 2016 Europa League Final, a match that the Reds would surely like to forget, as Sevilla easily won the match 3-1.

Sevilla: Rico; Mercado, Carriço, Lenglet, Escudero; N'Zonzi, Correa, Ganso, Sarabia, Nolito, Muriel.

The German's inclusion in the match against the former Europa League champions more or less confirms that teammate Mignolet will be Klopp's first choice for domestic fixtures, while Karius will be relied on for the Reds' continental business.
