UCL: Klopp claims Liverpool underperformed in their defeat by Red Star Belgrade

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

Jurgen Klopp decided to make some changes from the side that drew at Arsenal last weekend with Lallana coming in for Fabinho in midfield while Daniel Sturridge was also preferred ahead of Roberto Firmino up front.

Pavkov gave Red Star the lead when he headed home from the edge of the six-yard box after a Marko Marin corner from the right.

Adam Lallana admits Liverpool's players must take the blame for their Champions League woes after their shock defeat by Red Star Belgrade. The French champions sit third with 5 points, with Red Star just behind on 4 points.

While Liverpool are boosted by the return of Keita from an injury, they continue to be without the services of club captain Jordan Henderson, with the manager claiming the Englishman was close to a return. But so far, they haven't proven to be the difference we wanted. We have to build on our situation, we have to get better, get more confidence.

He added: "I think it's time for a few home truths really, because they could have blown that group".

Two first-half goals from €300,000 (£260,000) signing Milan Pavkov, the 24-year old scoring his first European goals in only his 11th appearance, were enough to beat the off-colour Reds.

Sloppy passes in midfield and poor choices in attack were taken advantage of - Pavkov's second goal arrived after Liverpool had given the ball away.

Utah National Guard member killed in Afghanistan in suspected 'insider attack'
US Defence Secretary James Mattis has recently pledged to step up training of Afghan troops to prevent further similar attacks. RS also said the incident was under investigation. "I love Mayor Taylor, his fantastic wife Jennie and his 7 sweet kids".

It was no more than Red Star deserved after the opening 20 minutes, with center back Vujadin Savic firing over before El Fardou Ben Nabouhane forced Liverpool keeper Alisson Becker to palm his low drive from 25 meters around the post.

Before that, Liverpool had scored in 14 straight games.

"It was a slow start all round really and we gave them far too many opportunities, especially from set-pieces", Lallana said.

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. "We all have to deal with it now".

Red Star's Milan Pavkov (C) scores his side's second goal against Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp's men have now lost three consecutive top-level European away games for the first time since 1979.

'Atmosphere-wise, another challenge. 12 o'clock, so for all the people coming to the stadium, go to bed early on Saturday night, be in your best shape at lunchtime on Sunday and help!
