Liverpool's group blown wide open after Red Star defeat

Liverpool's group blown wide open after Red Star defeat

Jürgen Klopp led the inquest into Liverpool's anaemic Champions League defeat at Red Star Belgrade as he sought to rediscover "the spark" that has disappeared from his team in recent weeks.

Red Star moved onto four points in a tight Group C, but are still bottom behind Napoli and Liverpool (six) and Paris Saint-Germain (five).

"In the second half we were better, we had enough chances to get back into the game and we didn't take them and you get punished".

He noted his ties to Partizan Belgrade, arguing that he simply liked the picture of Serbian flags rather than show support for his old side's rivals Red Star. 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.

And it has ultimately left Liverpool with real work to do in their final games away to PSG and at home to Napoli.

Their 2-0 loss at Red Star on Tuesday was a major blow given they had already lost to Napoli earlier in the campaign. We had moments, we had kind of nearly-chances, the biggest in the last two three minutes and before that not enough.

The Reds are now third, level on points with second placed Chelsea and just two points behind leaders Manchester City, with all three sides still unbeaten.

Liverpool had the briefest of openings, but, uncharacteristically, Adam Lallana's first touch let him down as he tried to control Salah's square pass inside the penalty area.

He will be partnered by Dutchman Georginio Wijnaldum, who has been an ever-present in the starting lineups this season, while the third midfield slot is likely to be taken up by veteran James Milner, who scored this past weekend against Arsenal. "We need to come together as a team and try to give what the gaffer wants, try to get the spark and try to win games more comfortably".

"We have to make sure you can not ask that question again".

22' - GOAL! Red Star 1-0 Liverpool.

Liverpool made it all the way to the Champions League final last season, but this season they are going to have to put it together to just get out of the group stage.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said afterwards: "The boys are very disappointed, I'm very disappointed and we have to do better".
