General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +9 Matip launches a long ball forward and Moreno climbs above Eschenko to win the header, but there are no Liverpool players waiting to get on the end of the knock down and Selikhov comes out to gather the ball in.
90' +6 SAVE!!! What a save from Selikhov!! Liverpool just can’t find a way through. This time Alexander-Arnold picks out Salah with another fabulous cross from the right-hand side, only for the winger to see his powerful header palmed away by the substitute keeper. It was straight at him but it was still a superb reaction save.
90' +5 CHANCE!! Another wasted opportunity for Liverpool as Moreno slips a lovely pass into the path of Firmino inside the left-hand edge of the penalty area, but with Salah and Sturridge waiting for a tap-in in the middle, Firmino plays a poor ball behind the Egyptian and Spartak clear.
90' +3 Pedro Rocha enters the game and replaces A. Samedov.
Samedov does eventually leave the field and Pedro Rocha comes on in his place.
90' +2 Samedov is the latest Spartak player to go down, and once again there is a delay in him leaving the field as the players wait for the electric cart to come onto the pitch and take him off. Those eight minutes of added time will probably be more like 10 now.
90' +1 The fourth official has just indicated that there will be eight minutes of added time.
90' WHAT A MISS FROM STURRIDGE!! Henderson floats a lovely angled ball towards Sturridge who is completely unmarked six yards out from goal at the back post, but he blasts his first-time volley over the bar. Jurgen Klopp looks pretty frustrated at the minute.
88' Salah once again looks to pick out Sturridge but again the final ball is not good enough, this time the cross has too much on it and Selikhov comes out to punch the ball away with ease.
86' CHANCE FOR STRURRIDGE!! Another chance passes for Liverpool as Sturridge controls Firmino’s flicked header six yards out from goal, before completely missing the ball with his shot, allowing Selikhov to come out and deny the striker.
85' L. Melgarejo enters the game and replaces I. Popov.
Popov does leave the field with what looks to be a hamstring injury. Lorenzo Melgarejo is the man who comes on to replace him.
Firmino lifts the ball into Sturridge inside the penalty area and the striker turns and shoots, only to see his shot fizz wide of the left-hand post. The flag is up anyway though so the goal wouldn’t have stood.
