Liverpool pre-season nearly boils over against Sevilla as Larouci stretchered off after horror tackle

The youngster fell victim to a vicious red-card challenge from Joris Gnagnon, further marring an ugly affair in the Boston heat

This was a game that will live in the memory, but not for the right reasons. The Spaniards’ robust approach left a mark, quite literally.
