Jurgen Klopp refused to blame Dejan Lovren in the wake of Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Sevilla on Wednesday evening.
Liverpool were held to a point in their Champions League group stage opener and went behind after just five minutes after Wissam Ben Yedder capitalised on Lovren’s botched clearance inside the box.
Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah had put Liverpool in front by half-time but Joaquín Correa’s strike in the 72nd minute sealed a point for the visitors at Anfield.
When asked about Lovren’s mistake after the match, Klopp told BT Sport: ‘It doesn’t make too much sense to be frustrated
‘Now we have to take it like it is.

‘I’m not frustration is the right word, of course it’s not cool, it’s not what we wanted, I don’t think it’s what we deserved.
‘They had two chances – did they have more? I’m not sure.
‘Obviously we had a big impact on that game, we were the dominant side, they played football in a few parts, we defended well apart from the two goals but I have to see them again so I cannot say [any more].’
