UEFA Champions League: Phillipe Coutinho salvage a point for Liverpool

One of England representatives at this season’s UEFA champions league Liverpool were held to a frustrating Champions League draw despite dominating Spartak Moscow in Russia.

The home team went ahead against the run of play when Loris Karius was easily beaten by Fernando’s free-kick after Philippe Coutinho’s foul just outside the area.

Jurgen Klopp fielded Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Coutinho in the same game for the first time, and the latter two combined for Coutinho to equalize with his first Champions League goal.

Firmino, Mane and substitute Daniel Sturridge spurned good chances as Liverpool were forced to settle for a second successive draw in Group E.

They are two points behind group leaders Sevilla, who beat Maribor 3-0 in Spain.
