Champions League: Red Star Belgrade upset Liverpool

Liverpool's Sadio Mane kneels to pray as he celebrates scoring the fourth goal during the UEFA Champions League Group C match between Liverpool FC and FK Crvena zvezda at Anfield

Milan Pavkov scored both goals for Red Star, as they picked up their first win of the season in the Champions League and blew Group C wide open.

Liverpool fans were left angered with Lazar Markovic after he appeared to like the fact that they were stunned by Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday, claims he later denied.

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. It's still in our hands and if we win our next two games we go through, but it was a great opportunity missed for us.

"We had chances but we weren't ruthless enough, weren't patient enough".

"All over the field, we didn't win the ball back well enough and the passing wasn't good enough", Milner, who captained the Reds at the Stadion Rajko Mitić, added.

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. In Liverpool we controlled the game, tonight we didn't.

Only a semi-final defeat at the French Open prevented him from becoming just the third man to capture a calendar Grand Slam. Its once again the time of the year where the creamiest of the cream tennis players defend against each other.

Jurgen Klopp opted to play James Milner, Adam Lallana and Gini Wijnaldum as a midfield three for the game but between them the trio completed zero successful tackles according to the official UEFA website and stats website WhoScored.

As a result Firmino believes the Merseysiders are well placed to push City all the way as they seek a first league title since 1990.

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

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

Speaking of the Switzerland international's situation, the manager said, "We have heard and read the speculation and talk about what kind of reception Shaq would receive and although we have no idea what would happen, we want to go there and be focused 100 per cent on football and not have to think about anything else, that's all".

In his post-match press conference, Klopp was asked if he could put his finger on what went wrong in Belgrade on Tuesday night and needed just five words to sum up the performance.
