Karius set for Champions League start but Klopp won't name No. 1

Sevilla's only previous encounter with Liverpool came in the 2016 Europa League final when they turned around a half-time deficit to win 3-1 and deny Jurgen Klopp his first trophy.

Much has changed at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium since Unai Emery guided it to a third successive Europa League title with victory over Liverpool two seasons ago.

"We thought it best to give him three or four days proper training and then he'll be available for us, which is very good news".

The Brazil global was heavily linked with a move to La Liga giants Barcelona in the summer transfer window.

The Brazil worldwide, 25, was left out of Klopp's matchday squad for Saturday's 5-0 defeat to Manchester City but is back in contention against Sevilla.

"There were a few eyebrows raised at Barca's £120m valuation and he will have to shine in the Champions League to show he is truly worth that kind of money". With Nolito, who scored in the domestic win out of the game Ganso is the man leading the team's fire power.

At times, it feels as if Klopp has spent two years, and a lot of money, recreating the Liverpool team which nearly won the Premier League under Rodgers four seasons ago.

Ahead of Wednesday's Champions League clash between Liverpool and Sevilla, we look at five key battles.

"I think it's my job to be a part of the game, I try to have an influence in different situations".

"It should not be too serious, but we sent him home so that he could not spread the virus - if there's a virus". I expect him to do just that and if he shows his desire is as strong as ever on the field, all the nonsense that went on over the Barcelona interest will be forgotten.

The majority of Liverpool's attacking threat comes down the left wing, specifically in the shape of the lightening quick Sadio Mane, who is likely to be accompanied by the overlapping runs and unsafe deliveries of rising star left-back Andrew Robertson.
