Jurgen Klopp was deprived of Joel Matip in the buildup, with the Cameroonian not fit enough to feature, Xherdan Shaqiri, started while Jordan Henderson played as a left-sided centre-back.


The Reds were dominant throughout the majority of the first half but, most of their chances were saved by an alert David de Gea.


It was clear at half-time that both Firmino and Andy Robertson would need to improve after the break, and in the second half only Harry Maguire’s interception kept Liverpool’s No. 9 from scoring.

Edinson Cavani then came in for Martial who looked out of sorts, as Ole Gunnar Solkajaer felt he could smell blood.


As the game progressed, it threatened to open up as an end-to-end battle.

Firmino and Mohamed Salah tooled but often saw themselves overrun while Shaquiri was replaced at the 76th minute by Curtis before Thiago drew a bright save from De Gea .
