Klopp: Liverpool do not have a mentality problem

Liverpool squandered a three-goal half-time lead to throw away the chance of early Champions League qualification as Sevilla netted a 93rd-minute equaliser in Spain.

Famous for their three-goal second-half comeback to win this competition in Istanbul in 2005, the Merseysiders endured the reverse as, having seemingly been coasting towards the knockout stage with a game to spare, they were forced to settle for a point.

Roberto Firmino scored either side of a goal from Sadio Mane in an opening 45 minutes which could not have been better scripted for Jurgen Klopp's visitors.

However, a worrying wobble saw them concede twice to Wissam Ben Yedder - one a twice-taken penalty - in the 15 minutes after the interval and, with the memory of their Europa League final defeat to the same opposition 18 months ago in a similar manner still raw, Guido Pizarro drilled home an added-time corner.

But Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is adamant his players do not have a mentality problem:

Everton forward Kevin Mirallas has apologised for his behaviour in a training session last week but rejected suggestions he was disciplined for a poor attitude.

Both the 30-year-old and Morgan Schneiderlin were left out of the squad for Sunday's 3-2 win over Watford after what Press Association Sport understands was an incident at the club's Finch Farm complex.

On Monday Schneiderlin, writing on Twitter, dismissed reports he had been sent home from training on the eve of the game because of a poor attitude and now Mirallas has spoken out, admitting he struggled to contain his frustration after being told he was being left out.

"I have to restore the truth after some articles in the medias," he wrote on Instagram.

"I was not excluded of the squad due to a lack of commitment during training this was a manager Decision And I was frustrated as I am fully committed in Everton since arriving in 2012 and I can't accept our actual ranking....

"I apologize to the president and owner, my team mates and the manager for not being able to cope at that moment with my frustration."
