After a draw in first round of Premier league against Watford Liverpool managed to achieve two victories in next two rounds while in Champions league play offs won placement into group stage after two victories over Hoffenheim and everything seemed pretty good but in last round in Premier league during weekend they suffered terrible defeat against Manchester City, already in 24th minute they conceded a goal while in 37th minute Liverpool's forward Mane got straight red card after terrible start on goalkeeper Ederson, after that Reds just couldn't do much and until the end conceded four goals, now must forget that and prepare for duel with Sevilla tonight at Anfield.
Hosts remember Sevilla well from that Europa league finals two seasons ago when took a lead in first half and it seemed that will won that trophy but in second half Sevilla totally outplayed them and scored three goals for their third consecutive title in Europa league then, now hosts are hoping that can revenge for that, here are favorites and i believe that can win but they mustn't underestimate Sevilla which are always unpleasant opponents and very experienced side. Anyway Liverpool are strong side, they must get back on winning tracks and in this game have imperative to celebrate. Goalkeeper Bogdan (0/0), defender Clyne (0/0) and midfielder Lallana (0/0) will all miss this match due to injuries while midfielder Coutinho (0/0), forwards Ings (0/0) and Salah (4/2) are still in doubt due to their injury problems.
Sevilla on the other side are in decent shape, they had a good start of the new season in Spain and after three rounds collected seven points and with that are at third spot at the table, last season ended as 4th placed team in Spanish La Liga and now should be able to repeat those results, they eliminated Turkish Basaksehir in Champions league play offs while in last two rounds of Spanish league achieved two victories over Getafe and most recently against Eibar with convincing result, now are facing with much stronger opponent and main rivals for leading spot in this group so must at least try to avoid defeat on this trip to England.
Sevilla were decent in last campaign, in Champions league reached knockout stage but were eliminated by one of the biggest surprise of the tournament beside Monaco, Leicester in 1/8 finals, anyway new season begun, they are still undefeated and will try to keep it that way, this will be a very difficult match especially as hosts are highly motivated, i'm sure that we'll see plenty of goals and excitements tonight as both teams are offensive minded sides and won't change their tactics for sure. Visitors are coming here without midfielder Geis (1/0) and Nolito (3/1).
Liverpool were smashed during weekend but despite that terrible result they are still strong side and i expect that will win this match, Sevilla are also good team with a lot of experience and this game will be all but easy, still here at home stadium with great support of their fans i believe that Liverpool can celebrate.
