Mohamed Salah scores as Liverpool draw 2-2 with Sevilla
Sevilla opened the scoring after only five minutes played. A Dejan Lovren miskick allowed a low cross to reach Wissam Ben Yedder at the back post, who finished from six yards into an empty net.
The Anfield side was back on its feet again, after brilliant work on the left side from Moreno allowed a cut back across the six yard box. Roberto Firmino made no mistake with his finish with 21 minutes played.
Liverpool managed to take the lead before half time, following brilliant persistence from Salah. The Egyptian international won the ball just outside the area, and his subsequent shot was fortunate to loop into the net after a major deflecion.
Liverpool had the chance to add a vital third with a penalty, however Firmino’s attempt came back off the post.
After the break, Liverpool dominated proceedings but could not make their possession count. Sevilla equalised when Angel Correa’s fortunate first touch allowed him to finish with ease with 72 minutes gone.
Philippe Coutinho made his first appearance of the season as a substitute towards the end of the game, but to no avail.
Joe Gomez was sent off for the hosts with seconds to play, however it made little difference to the score line.
Liverpool play Burnley next in the Premier League on Saturday at Anfield.
