Klopp drops Coutinho hint — Trending

"One day more. Good". "But tomorrow we have another competition and we worked so long, so hard for it and we actually plan to put all we have into this game", stressed Klopp, never one to mince words. Kick-off is scheduled at 7:45 PM BST, and Danny Makkelie will be the referee.

The Brazil worldwide, 25, was left out of Klopp's matchday squad for Saturday's 5-0 defeat to Manchester City but is back in contention against Sevilla.

The majority of Liverpool's attacking threat comes down the left wing, specifically in the shape of the lightening quick Sadio Mane, who is likely to be accompanied by the overlapping runs and unsafe deliveries of rising star left-back Andrew Robertson. They will get a ideal chance to bounce back, however, as a return to Anfield Road could be exactly what the players need to boost their morale and confidence. Sevilla are definitively a tough team, but Liverpool have enough quality to get back to the winning column.

The attacking trident of Mane, Roberto Firmino and Salah will fancy its chances of pressurising the Sevilla defensive duo into making unforced errors usually reserved for Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip. Apart from the duo, and Adam Bogdan, Liverpool do not have any pressing roster concerns going into the tie.

There is no doubt the transfer request and numerous reports of "close family members" suggesting all the things Coutinho would do if he did not get his move to the Nou Camp angered fans. He didn't give the red card immediately, but when he saw the player bleeding, I would have made the same decision. His inclusion will likely be decided nearing kick-off time. They have several experienced players on the squad such as Jesus Navas, Nolito, and Steven N'Zonzi. His three-game suspension only applies to domestic matches. They also won their play-off round 4-3 on aggregate against Basaksehir.

Liverpool are favoured for the match by nearly all ace betting sites, tipping Sevilla to make it 4 losses out of 4 on English soil.

Goalkeeper David Soria is out with a finger injury picked up in the first match of the season.

These two clubs have met just once in their entire history.

Sevilla will be expected another great performance from the starting line-up that downed Liverpool in the 2016 Europa League final but only five of them will hit the field against the Reds this time. The playmaker was left out against Manchester City in order to have more training as he has played only 47 minutes in two substitute appearances for Brazil this season. The result pushes Liverpool down to eighth position in the Premier League table. "This is a real challenge for us, but we want to be there so much and now we have to show what we are". I think it will finish 2-1 for Sevilla.
