The biggest positives were the performances of Raheem Sterling and Jordan Henderson, while the conceding of a 13th goal from a set-piece two minutes from time is the biggest frustration.

Liverpool can progress from the group if they beat Basel at Anfield in a fortnight in the final group game, but that’s a big ask at the moment given Brendan Rodgers’ sides current form — without a win in their last five games.

Rickie Lambert’s second goal in two games was a positive from the match, but the decision to keep him and Steven Gerrard as the team’s two attackers for the full 90 minutes, a duo with a combined age of 66, lead to much frustration and puzzlement.

We round up the stats and reactions to the match.
