Liverpool confirm 21-man squad for Red Star Belgrade clash

Share

Liverpool's hopes of reaching the knockout stages of the Champions League were dealt a significant blow as they slumped to a disappointing 2-0 defeat away to Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday evening.

Liverpool should have had an early lead when Daniel Sturridge inexplicably smashed over from just six yards and Red Star were ruthless in their response.

Red Star coach Vladan Milojevic was delighted with the performance, the first Champions League group stage win for a Serbian side.

Klopp was asked to put his finger on what went wrong. He elaborated: "They were aggressive".

Seahawks’ sack master Frank Clark continues his hot streak against the Chargers
McDougald didn't play in the second half with a knee injury that Carroll said was "pretty sore" on Monday. They looked like a legitimate playoff team and the Seahawks didn't, even though the game was so close .

"We had chances and we came out at the start of the second half which was better, but we weren't ruthless enough and we weren't patient enough", Lallana told the club's official website. We tried to make sure we can be focused on football. So they deserved the three points.

"They had too many set-pieces - that's true", the Liverpool manager continued. We had the moments, we played good balls in at the right moments, but then we had the ball in the box and could not really finish.

"You don't find solutions on the pitch, you solve problems. That's a completely different situation". Sign up now for a free seven-day trial.

It was Liverpool's third successive Champions League away defeat - the club's worst run in 39 years - and Klopp's side will travel to Paris Saint-Germain later this month before hosting Napoli at Anfield on December 11 in the final round of group matches. If you summarise it, I could make a few headlines.

Barcelona through in Champions League as Liverpool suffer shock loss
Upfront, Luis Suarez is another player who has stepped up in Messi's absence, and should be focal point of the Barcelona attack. He has travelled with the squad to Milan without the all-clear from the club's medical team.

"It was a game we lost and that happened not 20 times so far".

Liverpool tried to force their way back into the game and came close through Robertson and Salah.

There were plenty of candidates for worst player, but Daniel Sturridge's terrible first half performance was noticeably awful.

Keita has travelled to Belgrade and while he is expected to start from the bench, a short cameo at the end of the game is also likely and will provide him with some match fitness as well as a way to get his confidence back up.
