Good & bad news for Liverpool before Sevilla

Sevilla v Liverpool

Both Sevilla and Liverpool won in domestic action last weekend.

Sevilla are fifth in La Liga following a 2-1 home win over Celta Vigo.

And Sevilla had to win after going behind when Max Gomez fired Celta into a 13th minute lead.

Luis Muriel levelled the scores nine minutes before the break, before Nolito scored the winner in the second half against his former employers.

As for Liverpool, they cruised to a 3-0 home win over Southampton.

Mohamed Salah scored a brace to jump to the top of the Premier League scoring charts. Philippe Coutinho scored the third.

Good & bad news for Liverpool

On Monday, Liverpool have announced their squad for the Sevilla Champions League game.

In bad news for Jurgen Klopp, Joel Matip is out of contention once again.

The German defender missed the Southampton game with an abductor injury, and that’s forced him out of the trip to Spain.

It’s unclear whether Matip will be fit for the Chelsea game next Saturday in the Premier League.

In sunnier news, Danny Ings has returned to the Liverpool squad for the Sevilla game.

Ings has been regularly playing for Liverpool U23s this season. The former Burnley striker suffered a serious knee injury that ruled him out for seven months last season.

The 25-year-old has played just 17 minutes of a Carabao Cup tie this season.

Will he now get minutes in the Champions League?

In other Liverpool team news, Adam Lallana is in contention to make the bench after returning to training.

Daniel Sturridge was an unused substitute on Saturday and is likely to feature.

Nathaniel Clyne is Liverpool’s only notable long-term absentee after undergoing back surgery.

Alberto Moreno could face his former side.
