Toulouse vs Liverpool - LIVE!

Liverpool's unbeaten start to their Europa League campaign came to an end in controversial fashion as Toulouse fortunately held on for a 3-2 win. Jarell Quansah had seemingly snatched a point for the Reds with the final kick of the game, but his 97th-minute finish was ruled out after a VAR review. It was deemed that Alexis Mac Allister had handled the ball in the build-up, even though that came well before Quansah eventually turned the ball into the net.

Just a fortnight ago, the Reds had swatted aside the Ligue 1 outfit at Anfield, winning 5-1 to make it three wins from three in Europe and already leave themselves on the bring of qualifying for the knockout stages.

Victory in France would have been enough to do so, and as it turned out secure top spot in Group E with two matches to spare, but Jurgen Klopp's side could not do so as they were punished for a largely lethargic performance. Diogo Jota set up a grandstand finish, as he halved the deficit heading into seven minutes of stoppage time, but Quansah could not quite complete the rescue act.

Klopp not impressed...

19:50 , Matt Verri

Fair to say the Liverpool manager is not too chuffed with that late decision...

FT: Toulouse 3-2 Liverpool

19:43 , Matt Verri

Officials decide it was handball. Ball bounces off Mac Allister's chest and onto his arm, before play carried on.

Not sure why that's been ruled out really, considering it happened about three days before the goal was then scored.

Anyway... that's the final whistle! Liverpool are beaten.


19:42 , Matt Verri

The referee pointed to the centre circle to give the goal - but he's changed his mind.

Over to check the monitor now.

AND HE'S DISALLOWED IT! It was about 30 seconds before the goal, but it's been chalked off.

Toulouse survive.

GOAL! Toulouse 3-3 Liverpool | Jarell Quansah 90+7

19:40 , Matt Verri


And Quansah of all people. Basically the final kick, ball falls to him in the box and he turns it home on the stretch.

Toulouse 3-2 Liverpool

19:37 , Matt Verri

90+4 mins: Toulouse just kicking anything and everything that moves now. Desperately trying to hang on.

Elliott clips the ball into the middle, headed out. Gomez hacks a shot at goal, deflected away. Liverpool really pushing...

Toulouse 3-2 Liverpool

19:35 , Matt Verri

90+2 mins: Klopp marching over to the fourth official to make sure time is being added on, as Toulouse players suddenly develop a whole host of injury issues.

All back up on their feet now.

Toulouse 3-2 Liverpool

19:33 , Matt Verri

90 mins: Seven minutes added!

This match is very much not done...

GOAL! Toulouse 3-2 Liverpool | Diogo Jota 89'

19:31 , Matt Verri

Great finish!

Picks the ball up 30 yards out, drives into the box and it's a lovely left-footed strike to find the bottom corner.

Still time...

Toulouse 3-1 Liverpool

19:31 , Matt Verri

88 mins: Szoboszlai has decided he's going to do this himself.

He's shooting on sight, though not sure even that does it justice.

Toulouse 3-1 Liverpool

19:28 , Matt Verri

85 mins: No surprise that Toulouse are sitting right off now, letting Liverpool pass it around in front of them.

Gomez whips a great ball into the box, Salah chests it down but it's hacked away before he can get a shot at goal.

Toulouse 3-1 Liverpool

19:24 , Matt Verri

82 mins: Diaz off, Jota on.

Klopp has done all he can. Liverpool have got probably the best part of 15 minutes, including stoppage-time, to find at least two goals.

Toulouse 3-1 Liverpool

19:21 , Matt Verri

79 mins: Liverpool win a corner, they really need to get one back pretty much immediately.

Put right on top of the goalkeeper, pushed out to Elliott. He fires at goal, well blocked.

GOAL! Toulouse 3-1 Liverpool | Frank Magri 76'

19:19 , Matt Verri

Toulouse back in charge!

Dear me. A mess from Liverpool. Suazo plays the ball into the middle, Kelleher palms it straight out and Magri is there to fire home!

GOAL! Toulouse 2-1 Liverpool | Cristian Casseres OG 74'

19:16 , Matt Verri

One back!

Gomez nods the ball back into the middle, dropping at the back post with Salah lurking and it bounces off Casseres' shoulder as he looks away... into the net. Madness.

Toulouse 2-0 Liverpool

19:15 , Matt Verri

72 mins: Another Liverpool change, Klopp continues to throw everything at it.

Gakpo off, Nunez on. Chaos guaranteed.

Toulouse 2-0 Liverpool

19:12 , Matt Verri

70 mins: Toulouse so much better in the second-half than they were before the break.

Even at 2-0 up, they're still pressing and looking capable of scoring a third. Really impressive display.


19:09 , Matt Verri

Liverpool look awful at the back.

Toulouse break, again they just cut the visitors up. Donnum pokes the ball beyond Kelleher and into the back of the net, but the offside flag is up.

Dallinga was off in the build-up.

Toulouse 2-0 Liverpool

19:07 , Matt Verri

64 mins: Some slightly more promising signs for Liverpool.

Salah holds the ball up, comes across to Mac Allister and his strike is deflected behind for a corner.

Alexander-Arnold whips it in deep, comes to nothing though. Not a great ball in at all.

Toulouse 2-0 Liverpool

19:04 , Matt Verri

61 mins: Restes charges off his line and punches the ball away - in the process he nails Diaz who looks in a fair bit of pain.

He's up and about though, fine to carry on.

GOAL! Toulouse 2-0 Liverpool | Thijs Dallinga 58'

19:01 , Matt Verri

This one counts!

It's been coming too. Liverpool all over the place and now they're 2-0 down.

Toulouse playing with so much confidence. Ball clipped into the middle, Dallinga takes one touch to bring it down and a second to smash it into the bottom corner off the inside of the post.

Toulouse 1-0 Liverpool

18:59 , Matt Verri

56 mins: Even Alexander-Arnold couldn't make anything of it.

Floats the ball in, but it's over everyone and straight out for a goal-kick. Liverpool a mile off it at the minute.

Toulouse 1-0 Liverpool

18:58 , Matt Verri

55 mins: Matip elbowed as he challenged in the air, now he'll need some attention. Going to get a fair bit of added-time at this rate.

Szoboszlai with a driving run in the Toulouse half, shoved off the and wins the free-kick. Too far out for a shot, and fairly central.

Toulouse 1-0 Liverpool

18:55 , Matt Verri

53 mins: Salah collides with the goalkeeper, takes a blow to the head.

Looks a bit dazed as his gets some treatment, but he's back up and fine to continue. Been a pretty miserable start to this half from Liverpool.


18:53 , Matt Verri

Dallinga has the ball in the back of the net, he's celebrating with the fans... but the referee has ruled it out.

Matip threw himself to the ground, got a bit of a shove in the back.

Right decision to disallow that - referee took his time.

Toulouse 1-0 Liverpool

18:50 , Matt Verri

47 mins: Suazo wastes a huge chance for Toulouse... and the flag stays down!

Liverpool thought it was a clear offside, as Dallinga is played in behind. He slides in Suazo, clean through and he fires wide. Had to score.

Back underway!

18:47 , Matt Verri

Up and running for the second-half.

Klopp has made three changes - three big changes!

Doak, Endo and Tsimikas all off. Salah, Alexander-Arnold and Szoboszlai all on. Watch out.

How Toulouse took the lead

18:39 , Matt Verri

Moment to forget for Tsimikas...

HT: Toulouse 1-0 Liverpool

18:34 , Matt Verri

And that's half-time.

It was all very easy for Liverpool who passed the ball around with no real urgency, and they were punished as soon as they made a mistake.

Tsimikas caught on the ball and the visitors took full advantage, as Donnum's deflected strike broke the deadlock.

Liverpool need to improve significantly.

Toulouse 1-0 Liverpool

18:32 , Matt Verri

45 mins: Just the one minute added on.

Doak continues to try and make an impression, this time the strong challenge is a good one. He's probably been one of Liverpool's better players, but it's a low bar.

Toulouse 1-0 Liverpool

18:30 , Matt Verri

43 mins: Liverpool have pushed Toulouse right back, hosts have got about eight players in their own box.

The Reds just about resisting the urge to shoot from distance - might wish they had have now. Doak loses the ball and follows it up by making a needless foul.

Toulouse 1-0 Liverpool

18:27 , Matt Verri

40 mins: Endo needs to be very, very careful.

Already on a yellow card and he's gone diving in again, so unnecessary. Late, Toulouse immediately around the referee.

Endo survives - he surely won't if he makes another foul.

Toulouse 1-0 Liverpool

18:24 , Matt Verri

38 mins: Will Liverpool start injecting some pace into the match now?

It's all been so slow, which will suit Toulouse just fine now they have the lead. Elliott cuts inside and tries to find the far corner, but his shot is headed out.

GOAL! Toulouse 1-0 Liverpool | Aron Donnum 36'

18:22 , Matt Verri


Well then. Tsimikas caught on the ball and all of a sudden Toulouse are away, Liverpool can't get back in time.

Donnum drives into the box, shot takes a big deflection and flies past Kelleher.

Toulouse 0-0 Liverpool

18:21 , Matt Verri

34 mins: Endo into the book for a bit of a stamp on Dallinga.

Stretched to win the ball, the Toulouse man poked the ball away and took a painful one on the top of his foot. Yellow card for Endo.

Toulouse 0-0 Liverpool

18:18 , Matt Verri

31 mins: Nearly a complete disaster for Toulouse.

Ball loops up in their box, Restes should claim it comfortably but instead bundles into Diarra. Ball falls for Doak, smashes the strike at goal but it's straight at Restes who can turn it behind for a corner.

That comes to nothing, Toulouse look to counter but Gomez gets back really well to halt that.

Toulouse 0-0 Liverpool

18:15 , Matt Verri

28 mins: More like it from Toulouse, who finally decide to try and get bodies forward.

They get in behind Tsimikas down the right, space is there to drive into. Cross whipped into the middle, Suazo can't quite catch up with it.

Toulouse 0-0 Liverpool

18:12 , Matt Verri

25 mins: Sharp from Diaz.

Brings the ball down nicely under pressure and gets away a shot from 25 yards out. Catches it decently enough, but straight at the goalkeeper.

Toulouse 0-0 Liverpool

18:09 , Matt Verri

23 mins: Probably Liverpool's best move of the match, some lovely touches in there as Gakpo flicks it round the corner for Mac Allister.

Diaz tries to find Tsimikas outside him, not enough on the pass. Winger makes up for it by sliding in and making a great challenge.

Toulouse 0-0 Liverpool

18:06 , Matt Verri

20 mins: Doak far too quick for Diarra, who makes four attempts to either trip him up or drag him to the ground.

After being beaten for a third time, Diarra does finally grab hold of Doak and halt his progress. Again, somehow it's not a yellow card.

Toulouse 0-0 Liverpool

18:04 , Matt Verri

18 mins: More like it. Direct from Doak and Liverpool are on the attack.

Ball drops for Mac Allister in the box, he lashes a strike at goal that takes a deflection and flies over the bar.

From the resulting corner, Matip gets up well but he can't keep the header down. Decent chance.

Toulouse 0-0 Liverpool

18:03 , Matt Verri

16 mins: It's all very low-key at the minute.

Liverpool knocking the ball around, Toulouse sitting off and showing no real urgency to win it back.

Beyond that early Gomez header, Liverpool haven't created much. Or anything.

Toulouse 0-0 Liverpool

17:58 , Matt Verri

12 mins: Schmidt earns himself the first yellow card of the night - not sure what he thought he was doing.

Mac Allister looks to take a quick throw-in, and from behind Schmidt decides to basically give him a bear hug. Referee unimpressed.

Desler might not be far away from a card either, he clatters Diaz after trying to foul him for about ten seconds.

Toulouse 0-0 Liverpool

17:55 , Matt Verri

9 mins: Toulouse players trying to whip the crowd up and it's working, as they win their first corner of the match.

It's a good delivery, but Matip is there to head it away well. Good spell for the hosts, starting to offer a threat.

Toulouse 0-0 Liverpool

17:53 , Matt Verri

6 mins: Endo with a very cynical pull back as Toulouse look to break, made sure Sierro was going nowhere.

Not sure how the Liverpool midfielder has avoided a yellow card, but he has!

Toulouse 0-0 Liverpool

17:50 , Matt Verri

4 mins: Off the bar!

Gakpo clips the free-kick to the near post, Gomez flicks the header on and it loops onto the bar. Toulouse scramble it clear but that is an ominous start.

Toulouse 0-0 Liverpool

17:49 , Matt Verri

3 mins: No surprise that it's Liverpool dominating possession early on.

Gomez, who has the captain's armband, is playing at right-back but he's moving centrally into midfield as Alexander-Arnold does.

Diaz wins a foul out wide, up come the Liverpool defenders.


17:46 , Matt Verri

We're up and running!

Here we go!

17:42 , Matt Verri

Teams are out onto the pitch in Toulouse.

Home fans are right up for this, huge occasion for the Ligue 1 side. There's 32,000 in attendance tonight.

Liverpool's job to make them quiet as soon as possible.

Top spot crucial

17:38 , Matt Verri

Reminder that finishing top of your group in the Europa League is particularly important.

It means you get to skip a round effectively, with those who finish second in each group having to play a knockout round play-off.

Would take something fairly spectacular for Liverpool to not top this group...

Not long now!

17:31 , Matt Verri

Just under 15 minutes to go until kick-off in Toulouse.

Liverpool have been back close to their best this season - Tottenham the only team to beat them in any competition.

That was with Liverpool receiving two red cards and having THAT goal disallowed after THAT check by VAR.


Kelleher: We take Europa League seriously

17:26 , Matt Verri

Caoimhin Kelleher starts in goal for Liverpool tonight, and he is confident the club can go all the way in the Europa League this season.

He said: "We’ve got some good momentum [in the Europa League]. We had a big win the last time out and won our other two games as well, so we’re just looking to add to that and continue winning ways in the competition.

"It won’t be an easy game, especially away from home. I thought their fans were very good when they came to us so I’m expecting a good atmosphere there. I think it will be a tougher challenge than the last game.

"The main objective was always qualifying first from the group. So, I think if we can do that as early as we can, then we’ll be happy. We’re preparing for a win and we want to get the win.

"Our main aim is to win any competition we’re in. But we have to take that step by step, and we’ve taken this competition very seriously from the start."

"Lucho is really happy"

17:18 , Matt Verri

Pre-match thoughts from the Liverpool boss, including a very positive update on Luis Diaz and his mindset.

Klopp 'surprised' by Quansah

17:11 , Matt Verri

When 20-year-old Jarell Quansah joined the Liverpool squad for pre-season training there was not a lot of consideration given to him playing much of a role in the current campaign and there were even discussions about sending him out on loan.

Klopp decided against that and after making his debut in the 10-man win at Newcastle in August, the academy graduate has made seven appearances, including a Premier League start at Wolves and back-to-back appearances in Europe, and he adds to that tonight.

Asked about Quansah's prospects, Klopp said: "If you would have asked me pre-season (if) he would be that good I would have been surprised but since then I saw him every day and I am not surprised any more.

"It's great to have a boy from our own academy with that potential and quality. We will see where he ends up but it is extremely promising. There was talk about him going on loan and we said 'no', that was obviously a very good decision."

Reaction to release of Diaz's father

17:03 , Matt Verri

Liverpool have confirmed the release of Luis Diaz's father, bringing an end to a traumatic two weeks for the player and his family.

The club tweeted: "We are delighted by the news of Luis Diaz's father's safe return and we thank all those involved in securing his release."

Colombia's football team meanwhile put out their own statement, as they called for the sport to bring "unity and joy".

A statement read: "Football as a sporting discipline symbolizes talent, dedication, teamwork and the intrinsic values ​​of human beings. In Colombia it must continue to be a benchmark for entertainment, healthy competition, unity and joy.

"Therefore, we insist on the need to maintain this activity, as well as those who are involved in it, in the sporting and administrative part and their families, outside of any scenario other than sports."

Klopp: Proper atmosphere expected

16:21 , Matt Verri

Jurgen Klopp was full of praise for Liverpool's Group E opponents in his pre-match conference, with the Liverpool boss expecting a tough test tonight.

"All three teams impressed me, to be honest," Klopp said.

"Union, LASK and Toulouse are good football teams. Toulouse especially. They caused us problems until we understood a little bit more about how they played but you are right, the supporters were exceptional.

"I think they enjoyed their time at Anfield and rightly so. I am excited about [playing Toulouse]; I can imagine it will be a proper atmosphere."

As it stands

16:11 , Matt Verri

It's all looking very good for Liverpool.

They have nine points after three matches in Group E, leaving them five points clear at the top already. Both Toulouse and Union SG are on four, with LASK yet to get off the mark.

Victory here would seal Liverpool's place in the knockout stages, and would be enough to confirm them as group winners if Union SG fail to win tonight.

FA contact police over tragedy chanting

16:03 , Matt Verri

The Football Association (FA) say they are seeking "observations" from Luton and more detail from police over reports of "tragedy chanting" that marred the game against Liverpool.

Offensive chants could be heard coming from sections of the home support during Sunday's Premier League meeting at Kenilworth Road.

The FA have now strongly condemned the behaviour and pledged to continue to address the issue of tragedy chanting in English football, while reports suggest that Liverpool have also written to Luton seeking answers over how they plan to act.

The FA said in a statement on Monday: "We are aware of tragedy chanting during the fixture between Luton Town and Liverpool.

"We are seeking observations from Luton Town and further detail from the Police.

"We strongly condemn chanting of this nature and will continue to work closely with our stakeholders across the game, including the clubs, leagues, fan groups, and the relevant authorities to proactively address the issue."

Jurgen Klopp commented: "Shame on everyone who said it."

Last time out...

15:53 , Matt Verri

Liverpool blew Toulouse away at Anfield when these sides met a fortnight ago.

Five different goalscorers for the Reds too - Diogo Jota, Wataru Endo, Darwin Nunez, Ryan Gravenberch and Mohamed Salah all on target.

More of the same tonight?

Stage is set!

15:44 , Matt Verri

Perfect evening for it in France...

Liverpool team news

15:35 , Matt Verri

Liverpool are poised to rotate their squad tonight.

Mohamed Salah is likely to be rested, along with Darwin Nunez, as Jurgen Klopp gives Cody Gakpo, Diaz and Ben Doak chances to impress in attack.

Harvey Elliott will expect to partner Wataru Endo and Dominik Szoboszlai in midfield - the two summer signings scoring in the 5-1 victory over Toulouse last month - while another youngster in Jarell Quansah will line up in defence alongside Joel Matip, with Virgil van Dijk ill.

Ryan Gravenberch is missing with a small knee injury, meanwhile. Thiago Alcantara is expected to be out until the New Year, while fellow midfielder Curtis Jones skipped the 1-1 draw at Luton with a "minor fitness issue" and will not return before the international break.

Liverpool predicted XI (4-3-3): Kelleher; Gomez, Matip, Quansah, Tsimikas; Elliott, Endo, Szoboszlai; Doak, Gakpo, Diaz
