Liverpool boss Klopp remains positive despite Sevilla draw

Jurgen Klopp was pleased with Liverpool's performance despite being unable to hold on to victory against Sevilla at Anfield on Wednesday night.

The Reds had plenty of chances to put the game to bed after they went up 2-1 in the first half, but Sevilla managed to equalise through Joaquin Correa with eighteen minutes remaining.

Klopp said: "That's how it is - it's a results game, they scored twice, we scored twice, so then it's a draw," said Klopp. "Frustrated? I'm not sure about this word but I'm not happy of course about this, but I am happy about a big part of the game.

"We tried to ignore the result of last weekend, but as we all know, we are human beings and that takes away confidence, and I saw we were really spot on from the first second, we played a good game.

"A lot of times when two good sides play each other then it's kind of boring [but] I think this game today was the opposite. The main reason for this was the desire, the greed and the passion of my team, and all respect for Sevilla because they never gave up.

"They were lucky with the penalty for sure, maybe a second penalty [was] possible, [but] we had more chances and that's important that we have chances, that we create.

"Even against a defensively really well organised side, we created a lot of chances - we didn't use them, that's the truth, but in football it's really important you keep on going. There is a lot from this game on which we can build and that's what we will try, of course."
