Liverpool vs. Sevilla live stream: Watch Champions League online

After enduring full-on emotional tumult last season watching their team piss away and reclaim their Champions League position week after week, Liverpool fans find their manager treating the competition with flagrant disdain.

Liverpool were made to pay for passing up a host of opportunities, including a first-half Roberto Firmino penalty, as JoaquĆ­n Correa snatched a 2-2 draw for a persistent Sevilla at Anfield.

That was what left Keane sure that as long as they stayed that poor defensively they wouldn't win any "big prizes" and the likes of Real Madrid would be "laughing" if they got Liverpool in the knockout stages.

Klopp said there was room for improvement and that his players needed to learn to be dominant and not give away easy goals.

Elsewhere, European football debutants Leipzig were held to a 1-1 draw by Monaco while there were also wins for Besiktas and Shakhtar Donetsk while Maribor held Spartak Moscow in the night.

'I'm not frustration is the right word, of course it's not cool, it's not what we wanted, I don't think it's what we deserved.

"However in the second half, when we were losing and chasing the game, I still chose to throw the ball away to make up for (my actions in) the first half so I tried to do the same. It's not a general defending problem, but we have to improve".

Liverpool's failure to create killer chances and wastefulness in front of goal are becoming as much a problem as defensive issues, writes Pete Hall.

"That was the best period of the game, scored a couple of goals in that period, this is Liverpool to a T, and they really needed that other goal, as we referred to, they missed a penalty".

""I don't think this team is going anywhere."". "We work on this like we work on all parts of our game".

"If these problems could be solved by one player, you can imagine we would have put all our money into it and say: "Let's do this". The sides will be evenly matched, and the key of the game will be wether Steven N'zonzi can control the midfield talent Liverpool possesses.
