  • Thanks for joining me, now scoot over to Tottenham v Lazio. Got to love the Europa League, eh? Cheers.

  • The referee brings to an end a quite remarkable game of football. Eight goals, five of which came in the second half, and three points for a young Liverpool side.

  • Sterling is caught offside as Shelvey looks to clip one in behind.

  • We're into the frist of three added minutes as Gonzalez spurns a half-chance, heading wide from 15 yards.

  • Henderson is caught yelling expletives at the linesman but the referee doesn't seem to mind too much. To be fair to Henderson, it should've been a Liverpool throw.

  • Good work from Sterling as Liverpool go looking for a sixth. I didn't expect to be saying that tonight. Ultimately he loses out.

  • GOAL! Shelvey! And that, as they say, is that. Liverpool break, Shelvey ghosts around Spycher and blasts a left-footed strike past Wolfli.

  • Frey has a free header, six yards out, dead centre, but his mistimed jump means he can't get any power on it and Liverpool escape.

  • Good tracking from Sahin stops Farnerud in his tracks. Spycher then wins a free kick some 40 yards out after drawing a foul from Shelvey.

  • Coates does well to lump it clear under pressure from Frey as the hosts try to draw this entertaining game level.

  • Bobadillo goes down in the box, the most blatant dive you'll ever see, yet he's angry to be booked. That was cheating. Well done referee.

  • Borini is perhaps unfortunate not to win a free kick on the edge of the Young Boys box. The hosts clear and Farnerud drops deep to try and rouse his side. It works as Gonzalez gallops into the box but it's just a throw after Sterling tracks back.

  • Excellent work from first Coates and then Wisdom to stop Raimondi from delivering another cross. The latter wins a free kick and Liverpool clear.

  • Jones is forced to make a good save as Farnerud gets on the end of Bombadilla's pass. The ball breaks to halfway where Borini is booked for a foul on Ojala. Unlucky to go in the book there.

  • Zverotic is withdrawn, his last act a poor one, and replaced by Michael Frey.

  • Borini is then penalised himself for a foul on Vesckovac and that allows Young Boys to clear.

  • Veskovac is booked for cynically pulling Borini to the ground some 40 yards from goal.

  • I say gift, but Liverpool had much to do when winning the ball and did it superbly. Young Boys claim for handball as Enrique does well to keep Farnerud behind him and allow Jones to collect.

  • To be fair to the Swiss crowd, they haven't stopped singing tonight. They must be crushed, their side having fought back so well before gifting Liverpool what could be the winner.

  • Raheem Sterling is on for Downing. He could make hay if the hosts go all-out for the equaliser.
