Champions League Wednesday games as it happened

Liverpool were hammered by Manchester City but Klopp has defended his decision not to include Coutinho in squad

Some of the attacking displays under Brendan Rodgers and Jurgen Klopp have been nothing short of breath taking, although the Reds' defensive displays have often been breath taking for quite the opposite reasons.

Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah had put Liverpool in front by half-time but Joaquín Correa's strike in the 72nd minute sealed a point for the visitors at Anfield. In recent games they win 4-0, they lose 5-0 and tonight they give the game away.

Speaking at his postmatch news conference, Klopp said: "The first goal starts in a situation in the midfield when we can shoot the ball easily away".

Some 11 of Liverpool's 24 shots at goal were from outside the box on Wednesday night.

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp put a fearless face on after watching his side throw away a lead with another poor defensive display in their Champions League encounter with Sevilla at Anfield yesterday.

However, in the second half a similar thing happened when we were losing and I still made a decision to throw the ball away to try to make up for what I did in the first half. We were by far the better team, so it's really disappointing.

At 2-1, seemingly in control, Liverpool were content to dominate the game, and have more ambitious efforts at goal from distance, instead of creating that killer chance to score the third goal against Sevilla.

"Of course I'm not happy with the result but I'm happy with a big part of the game", he said. Whether they'll be able to turn their play on the ball into goals and how they'll look in defence has been a bit of a crapshoot.

Klopp, though, insists one player will not change everything in defence, saying: "I know you are always looking for this thing - the defence was always something being talked about: "We didn't sign this or that". It's up to the manager anyway, you don't decide yourself as a player.

On the plus side, Liverpool's attacking play was as exciting as ever with the pace of Sadio Mane and Salah giving Sevilla plenty of problems. You could construe both as unsportsmanlike, but I was trying to make up for it.
