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.
...
53' Sevilla seem to have pointed out the need to keep Moreno on the backfoot and are unrelenting in their efforts to exploit the right flank. Wise move by Sevilla. Liverpool seem to have lost a bit of drive here.
...
50' Wijnaldum comes guns blazing and takes out Correa who was trying to play a neat little ball ahead. Wijanldum pretends to not understand why the whistle was blown.
...
48' Sevilla are showing more intent in this half. Coutinho is warming up. Oh ho ho, Im excited to see how the Liverpool fans are going to receive him now!
...
47' Sevilla trying to make some moves along the flanks! But Liverpool are constantly cutting down the passing channels by defending tightly. But Navas gets past Moreno and sends in a good cross but nobody gets at the end of it.
...
46' Good defending by Pareja!
Mane gets to the end of a long ball ahead of the Sevilla defeat and tries to curl one in but Pareja gets in the way and denies the winger.
...
PEEEPP! WE'RE OFF AGAIN!
...
The second half is all set to be underway! Can Liverpool keep dominating Sevilla or can the La Liga men turn it around?
...
PEEP!! THAT'S ALL FOR THE FIRST HALF!

Sevilla started the match off on a high and disturbed Liverpool's netting and their calmness. Liverpool however, woke from their slumber and have been relentlessly bullying the La Liga folk. Salah is a real menace on the right wing. Mane is just as threatening in a free role. Firmino missed a penalty but Liverpool look certain to run away with this one. 
...
46' Moreno comes close again! Liverpool are absolutely running riot now.
Salah down the right flank again. Surges ahead with grit and cuts past a couple of defenders and sends it to Firmino who finds Moreno in the box. Moreno's shot is well saved by Rico. What a great half!
...
45' Liverpool are keeping at it! Mane cuts in from the right flank and tries to slide one in for Wijnaldum. But the pass is cut out and send for a corner. Nothing comes from the corner though but the Scousers are putting on a real show at Anfield tonight. Way to silence them critics after the weekend debacle.
...
43' Substitution for Sevilla!
Sarabia comes in for Pizarro. Pizarro is limping off.
...
43' Good stuff from Moreno!
Moreno is proving a right handful to deal with in the first half. Whips one into the danger area and Sevilla were taken aback. Pity that the ball is not met by anyone.
...
41' FIRMINO MISSES FROM THE SPOT
Mane gets brought down in the box by the collective efforts of two Sevillan defenders. But Firmino's shot hits the right post and runs away into the right flank. Liverpool would have got some cushion if that had gone in. Not to be. At least, not yet.
...
40' PENALTY FOR LIVERPOOL!

...
38' YELLOW for Moreno!
Reckless from Moreno. Crashes into Navas and the ball is a mile away. Just a reminder of why there are so many question marks attached to his resume at the moment.
...
36' GOAL FOR LIVERPOOL! SALAH SCORES!
What a great effort from Salah. Salah plays a ball to Wijanldum in the box. But Sevilla get the ball back. Salah doesn't give up and retrieves the ball again. He unleashes a shot and it takes a deflection and bamboozles Rico who had already made the dive. The ball flies into the netting bidding good night to Rico. Liverpool have got the lead. Entertaining stuff.
...
34' Firmino is down. Mercado gets a YELLOW! 
Unnecessary from Mercado. Firmino was by the touchline and was clearing the ball away. Mercado comes in and stomps on his left foot. That's not even duty stuff. That;s just bullishness.
...
33' Sevilla are on the counter. Pareja runs past Henderson on the right but cannot take the ball further away as the traffic catches up with him. Well defended by Liverpool. They stopped that counter well.
...
32' Can forays into the penalty area and unleashes a shot. It is deflected away for a corner.
...
30' Half an hour into the game and it looks like we have a thriller on our hands. Both teams are attacking with intent. Liverpool however, look stronger on the ball. Sevilla are growing more patient in possession.  Liverpool are not pressing that high up the pitch anymore.
...
28' Liverpool have been transitioning really well tonight. Mane this time stretching the play down the right flank. He cuts in and sends it to Firmino. But Firmino's attempt to find Mane is a bit too heavy and the ball goes out for a goal kick.
...
27' Nervy from Lovren. Doesn't reach the ball in time. Well cleared away for a corner by Lovren.
...
26' Wijanldum once again finds Salah on the right flank. And Salah battles it out to keep possession of the ball. The subsequent cross from Gomez gets cleared away. Salah has been alive wire in attack so far.
...
25' Pizarro catches Henderson and Liverpool have a freekick in their own half. The pressure is taken off them.
...
24' Banega starting to pull the strings in midfield. He finds Navas on the right wing. Navas wittingly takes 2 Liverpool defenders out of the game but his delivery is poor and Sevilla will have to try again.
