Milan Pavkov scores twice as Red Star Belgrade stun Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp chats with Liverpool's Xherdan Shaqiri as he's substituted

Crvena Zvezda fans had a choice greeting for Liverpool when the two sides met in Belgrade for their UEFA Champions League Group C clash on Tuesday - with a pre-match choregraphed rendition of "F*ck you Liverpool". The other two were Manchester United in 2005/06 who despite finishing second, were very much in a slump as they transitioned from the Roy Keane era towards a younger squad, and Chelsea in 2012/13, who having inexplicably won the Champions League the previous year under Roberto Di Matteo were in a state of drift domestically.

Alisson was also at fault for Alexandre Lacazette's equaliser against Arsenal on Saturday.

"I think it's one of those periods we need to get through", Robertson said.

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

"I think it made sense to make a few changes, a few we had to make and a few we wanted to".

"We need to win our games, it's on our shoulders.it's in our hands but we will have to play better than we did tonight". Now, Liverpool is far from out, but not getting three points here could prove huge come the end of the group stage. 'We have had enough chances to get back into the game and we didn't take them. "That's what we have to admit". Maybe it's not been as good to look at but we've been effective at it. Before that, Liverpool had scored in 14 straight games. Studge [Sturridge] had a good chance and if that went in it could have been a good night, but we're sitting here talking about a defeat unfortunately.

"The atmosphere, noise-wise, was not a problem for us, but after the second goal they could smell it".

However, defeat means they can not really afford to lose either of their two final round-robin matches against PSG and Napoli, who are both impressive sides.

Milan Pavkov (Red Star Belgrade): Any number of Red Star's defensive shield could lay claim to the award, but it has to go to the man whose two first-half strikes have clinched a famous result.

The defender said: "It's just games that we haven't shown up in. 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". "Last season everyone was used to us scoring four or five goals".

"As players we've got to take take full responsibility and make sure it doesn't happen again", he told LFCTV.
