PEEEP! PEEEEEP! PEEEEEEP!
That's it! It's finished 2-2. Liverpool do not get their revenge. And they are upset, make no mistake. Klopp is still trading some French with Berizzo's army. 

Sevilla stepped it up in the second half. Attack is the best form of defence and the La Liga outfit took the game to the Scousers in the second half and pushed them back a good 20 yards. Liverpool lost their sharpness in attack. Could've ended very differently if Firmino had converted a first half penalty with Liverpool leading 2-1.

Correa's beautiful finish in the 72nd minute ensured that Sevilla travel back to Spain with a point and a sense of satisfaction. 

This is me, Shambhu Ajith. That's all from the yap center tonight. I'll take my leave.

Arrivederci! 
...
94' RED CARD for Gomez. He lunges in at Muriel and brings him down. Second yellow, (not-so) early shower, off you go, mate.
...
93' Sevilla come SO CLOSE! 
Muriel has been excellent since coming on. He makes a brilliant run into the box but drags his shot wide. That could have sealed Sevilla's first win in England. History could have been rewritten and a lack of composure has cost us dearly.

...
92' Corner for Liverpool! Easily saved by Rico!
Wijnaldum tries to head one in from a Coutinho corner but the ball doesn't have much pace on it and falls easy to Rico.
...
90' 4 minutes added on. Sevilla are going out stronger from Anfield if I'm being honest. Liverpool are desperate to turn this around.
...
89' Corner for Liverpool!
Sevilla probing. But Liverpool are determined to plug the holes. They transition smoothly from defence to attack. Oxlade Chamberlain wins a corner for Liverpool down the right flank. But the delivery is rather ordinary and the attack is thwarted.
...
87' Substitution for Liverpool!
Oxlade Chamberlain in for Mohamed Salah.
...
86' Corner for Sevilla! Could there be yet another twist in the tale?
No. Nothing comes from it. Liverpool can try building again.
...
83' SUBSTITUTION FOR LIVERPOOL!
Sturridge in for Mane!
...
81' Liverpool have been considerably slower in the second half. They have not been able to counter attack with the same vigour as in the first half. Could this be from all that Gegen pressing?
...
79' Coutinho looking lively. Showing glimpses of the magic that made him the most wanted man in Catalonia this summer. 
...
78' Muriel is proving to be quite a nuisance down the left flank! 
He gets the better of Gomez and jogs into the box just inside the goal line and tries to cut it back but gets intercepted.
...
77' Liverpool will be regretting those missed chances now. They had the opportunity to put daylight between them and Sevilla but they floundered it all. 
...
74' SUBSTITUTION FOR LIVERPOOL!
PHILIPPE COUTINHO IN FOR EMRE CAN!
Interesting! The Scousers have welcomed him back with open arms it would seem. He is applauded back into the ranks. That'll do Coutinho a world of good.
...
72' SEVILLA EQUALIZE! GOLAZOOOOO!
Muriel who came in for Yedder in the 69th minute makes a direct run into the final third and sends it into Correa, who stops the ball with a ridiculously brilliant touch and sends it flying into the right top corner. Karius had no chance.
...
69' Sevilla combining well!
A cute little dummy and a couple of neat little exchanges later, Navas is freed up on the right flank. But his dangerous ball into the area finds no receiver and another promising Sevilla attack bites the dust.
...
68' Chance for Liverpool!
The freekick is deflected away from goal. But Wijanldum gets on the end of it and tries to put it past Rico but his shot gets blocked and goes out for a corner. Nothing comes from it.
...
67' Freekick in dangerous position for Liverpoool.
Mane to Wijnaldum, Mane passes it Henderson. Henderson to Mane. Mane to Moreno. Handball! Freekick to Liverpool on the left flank. Right outside the penalty area.
...
66' Exciting Liverpool! 
Salah drops the shoulder, makes a turn around leaving the defender for dead before squaring it to Mane who controls it expertly with his right. He goes for it with his left on the turn but the shot flies high. Liverpool are finding their feet in the second half finally.
...
64' Freekick from the left flank for Sevilla!
Banega swings in a dangerous looking ball but that fizzles out. Goal kick.
...
62' Firmino! Nice try!
The game looks pretty open now. We're starting to see some end to end stuff. Firmino runs ahead through the heart of midfield and rolls a ball past his man and unleashes a grounded shot. Cuts a few blades of grass but it ends up a good 2 yards away from the far post.
...
60' Iffy stuf from Rico!
Tame shot from Salah and it should have been easily gathered but Rico makes a diving mess of it and sends it out for a corner.
...
59' Bezirro is sent off into the stands. That's just wanker behaviour from the Sevilla manager. Second time he has done that today. Arguable decision as he didn't really mess with the flow of the game. 
...
56' Shot from Salah! Liverpool slowly growing into the second half!
Firmino surges ahead and gives to Mane. Mane loses it but WIjnaldum gathers. Wijnaldum shimmies past a couple before giving it to Salah. Salah goes for it from outside the box with his left. But the shot flies high and above. 
...
55' Wijnaldum squeezes the ball in for Mane on the right flank. But for all his good efforts, pass to Firmino gets cut out. Subsequently, the ball falls to Emre Can who goes for goal from 25 yards out. Shot gets blocked and it's ding dong time again.
