Coaching staff members Zeljko Buvac and Peter Krawiet have extended their contracts as well.

Liverpool started the brighter of the two teams in the opening half. For the match overall they had 72% ball possession and had six shots on target. But The Reds committed nineteen fouls in the match while the Spanish side committed just nine. Sevilla’s goalkeeper David Soria kept Liverpool at bay as he saved shots from Liverpool’s Emre Can shortly before the ten-minute mark. Sevilla defender Daniel Carriço cleared a goal-bound effort off the line from Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge. Sturridge tested Soria a while later, but the goalkeeper blocked successfully. In the 35th minute Sturridge collected a pass from Brazillian Philippe Coutinho and curled the ball with the outside of his left foot to give Liverpool the lead. Liverpool had a chance to extend their lead before the half-time break through Adam Lallana, but Sevilla defender Daniel Carriço blocked his attempt. Liverpool ended the first-half with a 1–0 lead.

Sevilla’s Kevin Gameiro levelled the score in the 46th minute from Mariano Ferreira‘s cross. Sevilla took the lead in the 64th minute through their captain, Coke, who shot beyond Liverpool’s goalkeeper Simon Mignolet to score. Six minutes later Sevilla extended their lead when Coke pounced on a loose ball in the box to ensure Sevilla claimed their third consecutive UEFA Europa League title.

After the match, Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp in a press conference said “It was obvious the first goal of Sevilla had a big influence on our own game. In this moment we lost faith in our style of play. We changed from passing simply and quickly to complicated. We lost our formation, so it was not compact anymore”.

Yesterday, Liverpool F.C. defeated Chelsea F.C. 3–1 in the English Premier League in a match at Stamford Bridge stadium. This was the sixth defeat of the season for Chelsea manager José Mourinho and the first victory for recently-appointed Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp in a Premier League match. Throughout the match Liverpool, nicknamed The Reds had much more possession of the ball than Chelsea. 30 fouls were committed, including 21 by Liverpool, and five yellow cards were handed out with four going to Liverpool.

Brazilian Ramires scored in the opening minutes of the game with a header from César Azpilicueta‘s corner kick. Coutinho committed a foul on Willian and was shown a yellow card. Later, in the injury time of the first half of the game, Coutinho scored a goal, providing the equaliser for Klopp’s side. The first half ended with both teams level at 1–1.

In the 65th minute, Chelsea striker Diego Costa avoided a red card for a brutal foul on Martin Skrtel. Coutinho scored a second goal in the 74thminute, assisted by Christian Benteke, providing Liverpool with a 2–1 lead. Benteke further widened the gap in the 83rd minute, with help from Jordon Ibe.

Coutinho was awarded the Man of the Match award. This was the 400th Premier League cap of Liverpool winger James Milner. Chelsea are scheduled to face Ukrainian club Dynamo Kiev in a UEFA Champions League fixture on Wednesday, November 4. Meanwhile Liverpool will be travelling to Russia on Thursday, November 5, to play against Rubin Kazan in the Europa League.

After the match, Klopp expressed admiration for Mourinho saying “he’s one of the best in the world.” Mourinho repeatedly refused to say anything in a post-match interview. He is under pressure because Chelsea, the defending champions, are fighting relegation and earlier this week, they lost to Stoke City 5–4 in a penalty shoot-out in the 2015-16 Football League Cup.

Liverpool-based football club Liverpool F.C. (LFC) appointed German Jürgen Klopp as the club’s new manager. Klopp signed a three-year contract with LFC for GBP £15 million, with annual earnings of £5 million and an increment to £7 million if the club wins the Premier League or if the club qualifies for the UEFA Champions League.

Klopp’s predecessor, Brendan Rodgers, was fired on Sunday after three-and-half-years of service at Anfield.

Liverpool were at 10th position in the League table and drew 1–1 against local rivals Everton.

Klopp previously served as the manager at German football club Borussia Dortmund (BVB) and won the German Bundesliga with them twice. Klopp held the position of Dortmund manager until May 2015, and his last match was against Wolfsburg in the DFB Pokal cup.

This signing made Klopp the highest-paid manager in Liverpool history. His first match in the Premier League will be against Tottenham Hotspur on October 17. Liverpool have only had four wins out of eleven league games this season.

In response to this signing, Borussia Dortmund tweeted “We heard the news today, oh boy! All the best at the Kop, Jürgen Klopp!”

After six seasons, English Premier football club Liverpool F.C. and manager Rafael Benítez have parted ways. The separation was by mutual consent.

Rafael Benítez, who left Liverpool earlier today.

The 50-year-old Spaniard joined the club in June 2004, replacing Gerard Houllie. He had early success with the club, earning the Champions League title over A.C. Milan in 2005 and the FA Cup title the next season, before returning to the Champions League final in 2007, this time losing to A.C. Milan.

Under Benítez, Liverpool has a less than stellar home success for the club with the most major trophies in English football, finishing second in the league just once, while finishing third and fourth twice each.

Liverpool Chairman Martin Broughton thanked Benítez for his service, saying that after a seventh-place finish in the Premier League this season, it was time to move on.

“Rafa will forever be part of Liverpool folklore after bringing home the Champions League following the epic final in Istanbul but after a disappointing season both parties felt a fresh start would be best for all concerned,” Broughton said, in a statement released by the club today.

“It is very sad for me to announce that I will no longer be manager of Liverpool F.C,” Benítez said, in a statement released by the club. “I would like to thank all of the staff and players for their efforts.

“I’ll always keep in my heart the good times I’ve had here, the strong and loyal support of the fans in the tough times and the love from Liverpool. I have no words to thank you enough for all these years and I am very proud to say that I was your manager.

“Thank you so much once more and always remember: You’ll never walk alone.”
