No margin for error in UEFA Champions League, Klopp admits

FK Crvena zvezda Marko Gobelji? during the UEFA Champions League Group C match between Liverpool FC and FK Crvena zvezda at Anfield

And with that, a 2-0 win that leaves Liverpool in a really tricky spot. "It's not the first time we've lost games, it's about how you react and bounce back, but we're thoroughly disappointed to come away (from Belgrade) with nothing".

"I saw, unfortunately, a few games like this already and it's really hard to find your mojo back, that you can do the right thing in the right moment very naturally".

Mohamed Salah fired over the bar shortly afterwards to sum up a poor first half for Liverpool, with Daniel Sturridge also missing an early chance for the visitors when he volleyed over the bar from close range.

Jurgen Klopp feels Liverpool are having to apologise for "not winning like Manchester City" after opening up on a team meeting about their expectations.

Klopp said: "Pretty much the first time all the midfield players apart from Ox are available".

They conceded a goal from a corner and another from a loss of possession and quick counter-attack against Red Star.

"We tried to change things in the second half, we had some situations". The Reds have to play PSG and Napoli in their final two games, and they'll likely need at least four points to feel good about their chances.

The hosts seemed fired up by it - winger Marko Marin was shown a yellow card for protesting in the fifth minute.

"But it doesn't really feel like that because there are two reasons in comparison with a year ago: free-flowing football in a few games and Man City and maybe Chelsea and a few others play a very good season as well".




"There's only been two games, now Red Star and Napoli (where we haven't been)".

The underdogs in Group C in the Champions League shocked the Reds as they prevailed 2-0.

"You will never score a goal against a team like Fulham with the quality Fulham have only because you go to win the game with the wrong attitude and think about scoring, scoring, scoring".

Robertson added, "Maybe it's not been as good to look at but we've been effective at it". We have to do better because we can do better, but tonight it is too late. The atmosphere singing-wise, noise-wise, was not a problem but the atmosphere after the second goal especially - in the whole club - they could smell it.

However, the Liverpool fan account @TheAnfieldWrap have now come back with the flawless response.

"(It's going to be) very tough. "We all have to deal with it now".

Pavkov became the first Serbian player to net a brace in the Champions League since Aleksandar Prijovic for Legia Warsaw against Borussia Dortmund in November 2016.

Winners of the European Cup in 1991, Red Star had not made it beyond the qualifying stages of the Champions League since the following year.

Liverpool is away to Paris Saint-Germain in its next match before a potentially decisive clash with Napoli at Anfield.
