Salah misses Liverpool training ahead of Sevilla game

Posted September 14, 2017

Sevilla boss Eduardo Berizzo has recalled David Soria, Nico Pareja, Guido Pizarro, Michael Krohn-Dehli, Luis Muriel and Ever Banega to his 22-man squad who were all rested for the aforementioned Eibar game. They will get a ideal chance to bounce back, however, as a return to Anfield Road could be exactly what the players need to boost their morale and confidence.

And yet, the final score read 2-2.

Liverpool receive plenty of plaudits for their front three threat but the explosion up top is combined with a tireless midfield trio which can trample over sides.

"If they train bad they don't deserve a game, but they both train really well, they keep the level really high".

"But because they had that really long contract behind him, Liverpool thought they could do that".

Simply: Liverpool were too effortlessly dissected at one end and not ruthless enough at the other. Not everyone, though, sees things going that way.

Sadio Mane, meanwhile, is a near-guaranteed starter, with the player set to miss the upcoming weekend as part of their three-match ban for receiving a kick on Ederson's face in the game against Manchester City, which earned him a red card.

Summer signing Nolito is also sidelined after picking up a late thigh injury in Saturday's win.

Sevilla have won their two away fixtures this season: 2-1 against Basakhesir, and 1-0 against Getafe. I have to see them again. "It's, of course, concentration, it's nothing else in this situation". One that most teams in the competition wanted to avoid during the first round. Salah and Firmino both scored in the home leg, while Mane was heavily involved in two of the goals.

Klopp confirmed that keeper Loris Karius would be in goal against Sevilla in the Group E home game, replacing Simon Mignolet, who played in the 5-0 defeat at Manchester City. Salah's illness will likely rob us of that.

Liverpool were awarded a penalty just before half-time, Nicolas Pareja dragging down Sadio Mane inside the area.

"This has to be the season where the trophies are coming back to the club." .

As a result Coutinho is yet to play for Liverpool this season despite playing for Brazil during the worldwide break.
