Liverpool held Borussia Dortmund to a 1-1 draw in the Europa League quarter-final first-leg tie.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp decided to start with Origi upfront and was rewarded for first-team selection when the Belgium international put Liverpool ahead early on. Origi could have doubled his lead just before the half-time break.

The Reds missed a number of chances and were punished for their profligacy when Hummels equalised with a powerful header just after the second half break.

Emre Can started in central midfield and put on a hard-working displayed as we have come to expect from the 22-year-old but his passing was subpar again and he had just a 79 percent accuracy.

Turkish international Nuri Sahin came off the bench at half time to take on his former side and his former head coach.

Germany international of Turkish origin Ilkay Gundogan missed the game entirely due to injury however, he could return in time for the second-leg at Anfield next week.
