10-man Sevilla beat Liverpool

22nd July 2019, 05:16 by Michael Holland

Jurgen Klopp refused to be downbeat after watching his Liverpool side lose 2-1 against Sevilla at Fenway Park on Sunday.

The tour of the United States continued with a second defeat in as many days, following the loss to Borussia Dortmund, as Alejandro Pozo struck at the death in Boston.

Sevilla had taken the lead through Nolito in the first half, before Divock Origi cancelled it out. There was also a flashpoint 15 minutes from time when Sevilla's Joris Gnagnon was shown a straight red card for a rash challenge on Yasser Larouci.

Klopp was quick to play down the incident after the game when asked if he liked games to be as competitive as the one he had just witnessed.

"I would love pretty early in the season that you write stories about the game without my headlines because whatever I say about it will be the headline of the game," he said. "We can talk about football, which was not too good. We could have done much better, probably, maybe, because of the circumstances and different situations.

"But in general, not this game, I don't like overly hard games because I think a challenge is there to win the ball, that's the only reason and there are rules. I don't want to say anything about this specific game now."
