LIV vs SEV Dream11 Team: Liverpool look to return from 3-2 defeat against Borussia Dortmund while Sevilla look to continue their preparations ahead of the impending season
Liverpool get ready to prepare for their fourth pre-season match of the season after suffering their first defeat in three matches in their previous encounter. Playing the first match of the International Champions Cup, the side were defeated in a riveting encounter by Borussia Dortmund with Liverpool’s lack of options in the attacking facet leaving them famished at the end of the 90 minutes.
For the side the focus ahead of their imminent encounter against Sevilla would be to give their first team players who time out in the middle. The main side was doled out for more than a half against Borussia Dortmund with several players getting their first start of the pre-season fixtures and expect the agenda to remain the same for Jurgen Klopp.
With the Liverpool manager also suffering a spate of injuries with Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, Adam Lallana and Bobby Duncan joining Andy Robertson as they all missed out on the practice session in the build-up to the match, expect a couple of young names to get an outing out today as well. The likes of Yasser Larouci, Curtis Jones and Adam Lewis will all be accorded more opportunities to impress and lay their claim forward for a regular playing spot in the upcoming season.
Elsewhere for Sevilla, the goal ahead of this match is all about trying out a hoard of players that the club has gotten in this transfer window. Finishing sixth in La Liga the previous year, the side which massively underachieved went onto replace their manager along with overhauling their side. In one of the biggest rebuilding phases, the side went onto rope in 11 new faces, selling 8 of their players in the process with Lucas Ocampos, Oliver Torres, Fernando and Luuk de Jong making a foray into the side.
With Liverpool having registered emphatic wins in their opening two pre-season matches before just about falling down infront of Borussia Dortmund, expect them to get back to winning ways against Sevilla. Their opposition is a side which is still transitioning, in a period of massive development and for them these matches are all about trying out new formations, players and methods under new manager Julen Lopetegui.
Liverpool should comprehensively win this one with the scoreline likely to lie extremely favourably in their favour at the end of match.

With the leftback area paper thin in the absence of Andy Robertson ad Liverpool’s pertinent refusal to dip into the market for a fullback, Yasser Larouci should once again start this encounter.
