Liverpool must put aside their Premier League disappointment as they return to Champions League football against Sevilla on Wednesday night.
Jurgen Klopp’s Reds have had a Jekyll and Hyde season so far, with a 4-0 thrashing of Arsenal immediately following by a 5-0 defeat at Manchester City last Sunday.
Liverpool are only three points off the pace in the Premier League table, but must find more consistency if they are to seriously trouble Europe’s elite in the Champions League.
And Klopp’s men must be wary of Sevilla – who painfully beat the 3-1 in the 2016 Europa League Final – with the Spanish side hoping to make their mark after winning a hat-trick of Europa titles recently.
