Missed Firmino penalty and defensive frailties see Liverpool draw against Sevilla

It was Liverpool’s first Champions League game since 2014, and defensive frailties again came to haunt the Reds as Spanish side Sevilla, on paper their only real opponents for top spot in what otherwise seems to be an easy group, came away with a draw from Anfield.

Roberto Firmino also missed a penalty as Liverpool spurned a host of chances in the two sides’ first competitive meeting since the 2016 Europa League final, which Sevilla won 3-1 in Basel.

Sevilla could’ve even come away with all three points had Luis Muriel not fluffed his lines in stoppage time

Liverpool’s goals came through Firmino (21) and Salah (37).
