Jürgen Klopp’s side had the chance to show what was supposed to be their new-found maturity against Sevilla, but they comprehensively failed the test
Georginio Wijnaldum’s expression said it all. As the final whistle blew at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, the Liverpool midfielder could be seen shaking his head in shock and despair as he tried to make sense of what had just happened. Many of the travelling supporters appeared equally shellshocked, yet ultimately the surprise was that anyone was surprised. After all, this was classic Liverpool – great going forward, gruesome in defence. A 3-0 lead thrown away and an important test failed.
