‘How on earth…’ – Reds fuming after Liverpool’s disappointing draw vs Sevilla

Posted by

Liverpool fans left Anfield far from satisfied on Wednesday night as they watched their team relinquish a lead to draw 2-2 in their Champions League group stage opener against Sevilla.

After going behind in the sixth minute, the Reds responded in scintillating fashion to turn things around and enter half-time with a 2-1 lead, courtesy of Roberto Firmino’s close range equaliser and Mohamed Salah’s deflected strike.

Jurgen Klopp’s men failed, however, to carry that momentum into the second half and were guilty of wasting several chances to finish things off.

Whilst a lack of conviction in the final third became costly, it proved to be familiar defensive frailties that hurt Liverpool the most.

This was evident after the break when the Reds defence failed to react to a quick throw in, before leaving space for the dangerous Joaquin Correa to turn and slot home past Loris Karius.

The hosts couldn’t find a response in what became a sloppy finish to a disappointing game.

In truth, it was a contest Liverpool should have put to bed.
