Watch Jurgen Klopp discuss his pre-match rituals and superstitions at Liverpool

Danny Murphy warned Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho

Danny Murphy warned Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho

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.

Liverpool and Sevilla take on each other in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League, Group Stage today.

Liverpool reached two finals in Klopp's first seven months as manager, losing on penalties to Manchester City in the League Cup at Wembley, and suffering a more decisive 3-1 defeat by Sevilla in the Europa League in Basel.

Klopp defended this choice today during his pre-game presser, saying, "The situation I can say with absolute truth".

Although Philippe Coutinho was given some game time during the worldwide break with Brazil, the midfield maestro is yet to play a game for Liverpool this season in the Premier League.

"If they train bad they don't deserve a game, but they both train really well, they keep the level really high".

He told Liverpoolfc.com: "I'm very happy to have this start with the team and to help the team win points and win games". I think he did (against Arsenal).

"Mo, we sent him home tonight, that's right".

"Could he prove something?"

"I know when the draw was made people were saying we are lucky with the group, but then you watch Sevilla and analyse them and think: 'Oh my God, that's real football, '" he added.

"You need to adapt to my coaching style as a player, because if a manager usually shouts as loud as I shout, he's angry".

"That's the plan - not to keep them happy".

Mane, however, is the main man for the Reds with his ability to penetrate defences through fast and direct running, and perhaps Sevilla's most important player in managing his menace is Argentine global Gabriel Mercado, a versatile player who can perform either at full-back or in the centre of defence. Still, fingers crossed for a similar result for Loris against Sevilla.
