Philippe Coutinho earns draw but Liverpool rue missed chances

“Win Or Die” proclaimed the banner that covered one side of Stadion Spartak before kick-off. It was an extreme order to Spartak Moscow, a strange motivational technique and as it transpired they were quite content with a draw at home to Liverpool. It was Jürgen Klopp who left with greater regret.

For the second time in the Champions League group stage Liverpool extracted only a point from a game they controlled, created the clearer opportunities and conceded as a consequence of their own lapses.

Spartak Moscow v Liverpool: Champions League – live!

8.25pm BST

38 min: Firmino bustles inside from the left and shoots. Taschi’s in the way. Liverpool probe down the right. Henderson clips a teasing first-time ball into the middle from the right.

Jürgen Klopp seemed genuinely excited by his first visit to Moscow and the formidable police presence that greeted Liverpool’s arrival at Sheremetyevo Airport. The prospect of finally unleashing his most talented attacking quartet provided another adrenalin-rush but Spartak Moscow away, he cautioned, might not be the place for “all the artists”.

Bans, Barcelona and back injuries have prevented the Liverpool manager fielding Philippe Coutinho, Sadio Mané, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah from the start of a competitive fixture this season. They shared seven minutes on the pitch in the opening Champions League draw with Sevilla but not since the defeat of Bayern Munich in the Audi Cup on 1 August has the fluid foursome opened a contest for Klopp. That may change at the Otkrytie Arena, home of the struggling champions of Russia, although there was a pragmatism to the Liverpool manager as he considered his impressive options for the second game in Group E.
