Prev.
We're underway here. Liverpool do the honours.
Prev.
We'll be underway any minute here. The Champions League theme is resounding around Anfield. Could tonight be one of those special European nights?
Prev.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: “This is the most special competition in Europe for club football. You want to be part of it, and when you are part of it, you want to perform. We are ready. If I would have spoken only about the City game for the last few days, that would have not been right, because we have also had some good games. But if you have a knock, you have to respond, get up, and do your best. And that is what we will try to do tonight. We are well rested. A few people will say we rest
Prev.
Sevilla coach Eduardo Berizzo: "Players of a certain level and personality grow when they come to a stadium and atmosphere like this, they grow in strength. Few times in your career do you get to play in front of an atmosphere like this. I am confident the players in my squad are very brave and honest with lots of character and personality."
Prev.
Steven N'Zonzi could be a key player for the visitors tonight, only PSG's Marco Verratti (479) completed more passes than the former Blackburn Robers man (459) in last season's Champions League group stages.

The atmosphere is starting to build here at Anfield.

Prev.
Liverpool make their long-awaited Champions League return tonight, can they manage to come out of the game with a win against the team that defeated them in the Europe League final a year ago?
