Liverpool vs Sevilla – Live
Liverpool were arguably favourites to lift the UEFA Europa League when they faced Sevilla in the final three years ago, but alas it wasn’t to be.
I’ll be honest, it was a particularly unremarkable game of football from the Reds with the only thing I’ve allowed myself to remember is Daniel Sturridge’s sublime consolation goal which was good enough to win a final on its own.
How many of the starting XI on that day can you actually name right now? Where do you think they are? I’m going to answer that question with this here article.
The Belgian goalkeeper remains at Liverpool, but has been reduced to second choice behind Alisson Becker.
Our previous number four left the club at the end of the 2015/16 season to join Celtic and is now a coach at Leicester City.
Liverpool kicked off their pre-season tour to the United States with a 2-3 loss against Jurgen Klopp’s former club Borussia Dortmund. But there was very little for The Reds to frown upon, as a number of squad players showed decent promise for the upcoming campaign.
They are back in action late this Sunday at Fenway Park, where they will face Spanish side Sevilla, who have won each of their last two pre-season games this summer. Klopp will be tempted to give his first-team players some minutes in this game and here is the predicted lineup he might field on the night.
Liverpool’s Brazilian duo Alisson Becker and Roberto Firmino, along with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are all yet to join the group. Xherdan Shaqiri, Bobby Duncan and Naby Keita are out injured and remain the only other players missing for this game against Sevilla.
