The story of the game in stats...

Full Time

Sevilla comeback stuns Reds

Liverpool are held to a 3-3 draw by Sevilla in Spain in a quite astonishing game in Spain.

The Reds raced into a three-goal lead thanks to Roberto Firmino's brace - the first coming after 90 seconds - and Sadio Mane's header.

However, after half-time, Sevilla staged their comeback as Wissam Ben Yedder struck twice - one from the penalty spot - but Guido Pizarro lashed home a 92nd-minute equaliser.

93

Goal

Goal for Sevilla - Guido Pizarro

Sevilla have the equaliser deep into stoppage-time as Pizarro manages to control the ball in the box at a corner and smash home from 12 yards.

Four minutes of added time to be played...

85

Milner drills the ball right across the face of the Sevilla goal, about two yards out, but no-one is on hand to meet it.

86

Substitution

Salah makes way for Oxlade-Chamberlain.

85

The ball rolls across the Liverpool box near the penalty spot. It's agonising, but no white shirt is there to meet it and Liverpool clear.

82

Yellow Card

Emre Can goes into the book.

82

Can hooks a pass into the box for Mane to chase. He meets the bouncing ball with a left-foot strike but it flies over the crossbar.

81

Substitution

Ben Yedder goes off, Correa comes on.

78

Liverpool launch a counter from a Sevilla corner, but Can is unable to turn in Salah's pass as Escudero gets a toe to the ball.

72

Substitution

Muriel on, Nolito off for the home team.

71

Chance

Liverpool carve out their first opening of the second half as Firmino wins the ball back of the edge of the Sevilla box. It breaks for Salah, whose drive is pushed around the post by Rico.

68

Yellow Card

Jordan Henderson goes into the book.

63

Substitution

Klopp reacts to Sevilla's pressure by making a double change - Coutinho and Moreno are off, Can and Milner are on.

60

Goal

Goal - Ben Yedder

The striker scores from the spot at the second attempt after a re-take was ordered.

3-2 now and Sevilla's tails are up here.

59

Penalty

Penalty to Sevilla

The hosts have a spot kick after Moreno was deemed to have tripped Ben Yedder.

55

Sevilla's spirits have been visably lifted by that goal and they're pushing for another - Klavan is required to head a dangerous-looking cross away from inside the six-yard box.

51

Goal

Goal - Wissam Ben Yedder

The home side pull one back as Ben Yedder meets a free-kick from the right at the near post with a header across goal and beyond Karius.

3-0 up at half-time and the lad who has scored 14 so far this season hasn’t netted. Boss tha #LFC #SEVLIV

Kick-Off

Back under way

The game restarts in Spain with Liverpool kicking us off - and Sevilla have made a change with Vazquez coming on for N'Zonzi.

The first time since May 2009, under Rafa Benitez, that @LFC have scored 3 or more for a 5th successive game. (they… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…
Ahhhh We Love you @LFC 👏🏻⚽️🔝 3 up! Keep it going boys ⚽️

The tale of the first half in numbers...

Half Time

Liverpool in command at the break

Well, what a first half that was for the Reds, who lead 3-0 against Sevilla in Spain.

Roberto Firmino scored twice - including the opener after just 90 seconds - while Sadio Mane was also on target.

Jürgen Klopp's men are on course to seal first place in Group E with a game to spare.

45

Yellow Card

Banega booked for pulling back Coutinho.

40

Chance

Coutinho slids in Salah, who attempts to steer beyond Rico first time, but the 'keeper saves by deflecting it behind.

37

Yellow Card

Alberto Moreno is booked.

30

Goal

GOAL! ROBERTO FIRMINO!

Liverpool go 3-0 ahead and Bobby has his second.

It owes much to the brilliance of Sadio Mane, who absolutely outstrips Mercado to reach Moreno's ball forward. He breaks into the box and shoots, but is foiled by Rico.

However, Firmino is on hand to tap into the empty net.

Amazing stuff.

Goal

GOAL! SADIO MANE!

We finally do have the second goal this game has been threatening - and thankfully it's gone Liverpool's way.

Similar to our opener, but this time Firmino flicks across goal at the near post and Mane arrives to stoop in and nod over the line.

Everyone looks to see if he is offside before realising the goal will stand and the away end erupts.

Get in!

21

Another chance!

Roberto Firmino speeds through on goal and strikes; however, Rico manages to block and deflect the ball behind for a corner.

20

Chance

Ben Yedder is sent clear inside the LFC box and he drills low across goal, narrowlly missing the far corner by an inch.

It should be 1-1.

19

Chance

Liverpool gift the ball away and Sevilla break from midfield. Nolito steps inside the challenge of Gomez and shoots low... Karius manages to get a strong glove to it and push it onto the post before it rebounds back into the goalkeeper's hands.

A let off for the Reds, a brilliant save from Loris.

Only the 7th time @LFC have ever scored within 2 minutes of a European game. The previous one was the quickest ever… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…
13

A chance for the hosts as Escudero overlaps down the left and absolutely smacks a shot into Karius' side netting.

Well, it was certainly a flying start for the Reds on the pitch... but for those of us way up in the press box here, not so much. Our Wifi connections dropped out for 10 minutes, meaning Bobby's strike caused a little anxiety for us up here.

Think we're good now, though... fingers crossed.

Elsewhere in Group E...

...there's been some good news for Liverpool's qualification prospects already this evening as Spartak Moscow and Maribor played out a 1-1 draw in Russia - Jasmin Mesanovic's 92nd-minute goal rescued a point for the Slovenian side.

That leaves the table looking like below ahead of kick-off...

Actualización del clima...

...that's 'weather update' in Spanish and we'd like to begin with an apology; we've left it far too late in the day to deliver our latest on the metrological conditions in Sevilla.

We hold our hands up and we know you're not angry, just disappointed. We'll try to make sure it doesn't happen again.

Anyway, conditions are, quite frankly, magnificent here at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium - the weather has been glorious all day, being honest - and it's currently around 18 degrees with clear skies and no wind.

It might get a little chilly later, but it's not bad for a game in late November, is it?

Pre-match

Team news

Karius, Gomez, Klavan, Lovren, Moreno, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Coutinho, Mane, Salah, Firmino.

Subs: Mignolet, Milner, Sturridge, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Can, Solanke, Alexander-Arnold.

Klopp on Matip, Lallana and Firmino

We caught up with the boss on the flight to Spain yesterday afternoon. 

As well as discussing topics such as Joel Matip's injury and whether Adam Lallana may make his long-awaited return against Sevilla, Klopp also spoke glowingly about Roberto Firmino.

"What a player! What can I say? He looks like the engine of the team," Jürgen said.

Did you know?

Mo Salah could emulate a goalscoring feat last achieved for the Reds by Luis Suarez tonight...

If the No.11 nets a brace in this game, he will be the first Liverpool player since Suarez in December 2013 to score two goals in three successive matches.
