Chelsea hero Pat Nevin believes Liverpool could be hit psychologically after their collapse against Sevilla last night.

Liverpool allowed Sevilla to secure a 3-3 draw in their Champions League tie having gone into halftime 3-0 up.

The Reds host Chelsea on Saturday afternoon in the late kick-off.

And Nevin thinks last night’s nightmare second-half could have a lasting effect on Jurgen Klopp‘s side.

“That’s going to be a hard one to take,” he said on Radio 5 Live.

“On top of that they were so close (to qualifying) that’s going to have a psychological effect as well.

“If you’re at Anfield and you’re playing against Spartak and you’re 1-0 up with five minutes to go or you’re drawing 0-0, you’ll still be panicking because you know what’s happened in this group.

“So they have to make sure that psychological blip doesn’t happen.”
