Liverpool 2-2 Sevilla

Champions League Group Stage, Anfield
September 13, 2017

Goals: Firmino 21′, Salah 37′; Ben Yedder 5′, Correa 72′


Sevilla started off as the better side and got the opening goal after five minutes through Wassim Ben Yedder, but Roberto Firmino quickly equalised for the Reds.

Mohamed Salah gave Liverpool a deserved lead shortly before half-time when his shot was deflected into the back of the net and Firmino then had a chance to make it 3-1 but hit the post from the penalty spot.

Joaquin Correa managed to grab an equaliser for Sevilla in the second half as Liverpool were left frustrated by missed opportunities to extend their lead.

Here are all the reactions from Liverpool supporters on social media throughout the 2-2 draw.
