2Mins

Liverpool on the attack early on with Mane causing problems.

The Senegal international’s cross has just been deflected into Sergio Rico’s arms.

3Mins

A John Stones header has just given Man City the lead away to Feyenoord.

6Mins

That’s poor from a Liverpool perspective.

Lovren doesn’t deal with Escudero’s cross, allowing Ben Yedder to tap into the empty net.

9Mins

Elsewhere, Spurs could be about to end talk of the supposed Wembley curse.

Son Heung-min has given them the lead against Dortmund.

11Mins

Mane forces a save from the goalkeeper, after good work from Salah on the right.

As I type, Firmino heads just over.

Liverpool have posed a considerable threat in attack despite that early setback.

13Mins

More goals elsewhere. Aguero has made it 2-0 to Man City against Feyenoord.

Yarmolenko has equalised for Dortmund, and Ronaldo has put Real Madrid ahead against APOEL.

17Mins

Harry Kane has just restored Tottenham’s lead with a typically clinical finish.

Meanwhile, at Anfield, it continues to be quite fast-paced, with both sides threatening while looking a little vulnerable defensively.

22Mins

Moreno and Henderson link up well down the left.

The full back’s cross is subsequently tapped home by Firmino.

23Mins

Can wastes a golden chance to make it 2-1.

The German international drags his shot wide, after a rapid Liverpool counter-attack involving Mane and Salah.

24Mins

An interesting stat…

27Mins

Gabriel Jesus has made it 3-0 to Man City against Dutch champions Feyenoord.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are really starting to dominate at Anfield now.

35Mins

Mercado has just been booked for a cynical foul on Firmino.

Liverpool continue to look the stronger side at the moment.

39Mins

Salah wins the ball from N’Zonzi on the edge of the area. His subsequent shot goes in after taking a wicked deflection off Kjær.

The Sevilla players protest angrily, thinking the initial challenge from Salah should have resulted in a free kick, but the referee ignores their protests.

41Mins

PENALTY TO LIVERPOOL!

41Mins

FIRMINO HITS THE POST WITH HIS PENALTY!

44Mins

Pareja was initially penalised for pulling down Mane, after initial claims that he handballed it were ignored.

Firmino can only find the woodwork with the resulting penalty, after sending the goalkeeper the wrong way.

Liverpool could end up rueing that miss, as it would surely have wrapped up the game.

45Mins

Right on half-time, Liverpool broke at speed again.

Salah makes a great run, before Moreno forces a good save from Rico with his finish.

45Mins

Eamon Dunphy is not impressed by Sevilla.

He brands them “a team of journeymen”.

45Mins

This game remains very open, with both sides not afraid to get bodies forward.

You suspect there will be at least another goal or two before full-time.

57Mins

The ball falls to Salah on the edge of the box, but he can’t quite control it.

Liverpool will really be frustrated if they don’t come away with three points, as they have had plenty of opportunities to finish this game off.

Flag 60Mins

RED CARD FOR THE SEVILLA MANAGER!

Eduardo Berizzo refused to give the ball back to Joe Gomez for a quick throw, and was subsequently given his marching orders.

61Mins

Elsewhere, Spurs look set for a rare Wembley victory.

Harry Kane has fired home his second of the night to make it 3-1`.

66Mins

Mane turns nicely on the edge of the area, before shooting over.

That came from good work on the right by Salah, who has looked sharp tonight.

67Mins

69Mins

A Henderson free kick is only half cleared and falls to Wijnaldum.

The Dutch international’s shot is parried out for a corner by Rico.

70Mins

74Mins

Out of nothing, Sevilla have equalised!

Correa makes no mistake with his finish, after Muriel plays him through.

That was all too easy for Sevilla.

76Mins

Coutinho is coming on to try to win this game for Liverpool.

He has replaced Emre Can.

77Mins

79Mins

“Everything I was told not to do when I was here, he does.”

Jim Beglin is not a big fan of Moreno, it seems.

83Mins

Liverpool replace Mane with Sturridge.

Sevilla also make a change — Navas comes off for Corchia.

89Mins

Another sub for Liverpool.

Oxlade-Chamberlain replaces Salah.

91Mins

There will be four minutes of stoppage time…

90Mins

Muriel goes through on goal, but hits it wide.

90Mins

The defender receives a second yellow and will miss the next match.

Right, that’s all from me. Thanks for reading and commenting.
