Sevilla president claims Liverpool will want 'revenge' for Europa League final

Sevilla president claims Liverpool will want 'revenge' for Europa League final

Klopp also said he was not surprised that Liverpool lost their appeal over Sadio Mane's red card but insisted the club had a "duty" to challenge the length of the three-match ban.

It is likely however that Coutinho will feature for Klopp's Liverpool side on Wednesday night in the club's Champions League curtain raiser against La Liga outfit Sevilla.

"We need to learn how to be dominant and not to give easy goals away", Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said.

This is Liverpool's 10th Champions League campaign, and only their second appearance in the group stages in the last eight seasons. The Spanish side saw off Basaksehir 4-3 on aggregate.

The lowest point came at the start of last season when I was not playing.

Sevilla coach Eduardo Berizzo has ruled out midfielder Johannes Geis and forward Nolito in the trip to Merseyside.

Sevilla play an energetic brand of football that could mean a really interesting game to watch on Wednesday. If they train badly they don't deserve a game, but they both train really well.

'We have changed a lot of things since the final, but it is always this way and they have also made progress.

- Klopp aims to actively rotate his squad all season long. Salah and Firmino both scored in the home leg, while Mane was heavily involved in two of the goals. No matter though, as the trio have the attributes to terrorise any defence that confronts them. 'The game against Arsenal was exactly the same (as this will be). I think he is doing a good job. It was tough for him.

Alberto Moreno is another player who has come in for criticism in recent times, albeit for on-pitch reasons rather than moaning, but in an exclusive interview with The Telegraph the Spaniard showed an impressive outlook on his struggles which put Coutinho's "sadness" into context somewhat.

And Loris Karius has been selected to start in goal by Jurgen Klopp. It's not about this, it's kind of this being dominant and losing a little bit the grip on the game. The Egyptian was sent home from Melwood with the effects of a virus.

This is something that he retained for Liverpool's clash with Dortmund in the Europa League in 2016, seemingly paying off.
