  • Reports: Klopp Considering Dropping Shaqiri From Belgrade Visit

Red Star Belgrade hero Milan Pavkov revealed he would struggle to sleep for "two or three nights" after firing the Serbian club to an upset win over Liverpool in the Champions League. "Pavkov scored two handsome goals, but all the boys played really well - now if only we could play like this every week", he said.

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.

Liverpool would have been four points clear at the top - for at least a few hours - had they won, but their inability to do so means Napoli or Paris Saint-Germain can overtake them.

"All over the field, we didn't win the ball back well enough and the passing wasn't good enough". You then have to play your best football in a negative mood.it was a blow.

The second half was little better for Liverpool and it took until the 70th minute before they were able to truly test Red Star's keeper, Milan Borjan.

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri unhappy despite another win
Cagliari pushed forward with Artur Ionita setting up Leonardo Pavoletti but Wojciech Szczesny cleared, before Pedro broke through. Cagliari are a hard opponent and they are the team that has covered the most ground in the league and are unsafe in the box.

Liverpool should have had an early lead when Daniel Sturridge inexplicably smashed over from just six yards and Red Star were ruthless in their response.

Nevertheless, Milner was frustrated by Liverpool's failure in front of 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. The last one is a very hard home game against Napoli. We want the focus to be on a great game of football, free from anything else.

Yet, even while Liverpool's results have remained positive, they have rarely been accompanied by the level of performance they achieved on their run to the Champions League final last season.

After the Premier League side's routine 4-0 win over the Serbs last month, the former Bayern Munich victor said he could "handle it, no problem", in reference to playing in Serbia.

That was of little concern to Red Star's players, however, as they joined arms and took the acclaim of their supporters on the full-time whistle.
