Pre-Season: Liverpool Lose To Sevilla Marred By Horror Tackle On Larouci

Divock Origi netted as Liverpool lost 2-1 to Sevilla, but the game was marred by a potentially serious injury to Yasser Larouci.

The young left-back was stretchered off after being kicked in the shin by Joris Gnagnon, who was shown a straight red card, with 15 minutes left at a sweltering Fenway Park in Boston.

Sevilla had earned a deserved first-half lead in front of a hugely partisan Liverpool crowd when Nolito fired past debutant Andy Longeran, but Origi netted a minute before the break when he tapped home Nathaniel Phillips’ header from a corner.

Wholesale changes from both sides at half-time led to a disjointed second half which Gnagnon’s red card did little to aid, but with 10-man Sevilla soaking up late pressure from Liverpool they sprung a late surprise on the break, finding Munir in the channel before he crossed for young substitute Alejandro Pozo to fire a late winner past Simon Mignolet at the second attempt.
