Sorry Liverpool slump to defeat at Red Star

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

Liverpool suffered their third consecutive away defeat in the Champions League on Tuesday night, as Red Star Belgrade beat last season's finalists 2-0 in Serbia.

Klopp opted to rest Roberto Firmino and give Sturridge a rare start, but he endured a hard game.

"I don't know how many chances, very good chances, we had tonight, but it felt like a lot".

"We have to admit - congratulations Red Star, it was well deserved". The result puts them behind the eight ball with games to come against Paris Saint-Germain and Napoli. 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.

A loss to French champions PSG would leave them facing a nail-biting shoot-out with Napoli and Liverpool midfielder Lallana knows his team have no excuses for their predicament.

Adam Lallana is certain Liverpool will react to the disappointment of defeat to Red Star Belgrade in the right way. We had moments, we had kind of nearly-chances, the biggest in the last two three minutes and before that not enough. Spurs face an uphill task after taking just four points from their opening four games, while Liverpool's slip-up in Belgrade has left them with plenty of work to do to qualify for the knockout stages.

Last season Liverpool defied expectation by getting to the final of the Champions League, only to lose following Loris Karius' infamous display and Gareth Bale's incredible first goal.

Things turned from bad to worse for the Reds when Pavkov doubled Red Star's lead with a stunning long range strike in the 29th minute. They were, if you want, on their bikes and we had to deal with the situation.

Adam Lallana nearly got Liverpool back in the game moments later but his header was deflected just wide, and Sturridge then fired wide from just inside the box.

"The atmosphere noise wise was not a problem for us".

Owen and McManaman noted that Alisson was in position to stop the second goal. "It's not the first time we've lost games and it's about how you react and how you bounce back but we are thoroughly disappointed to come away with nothing".
