Klopp: I can't count the ways it went wrong for Liverpool

Klopp: I can't count the ways it went wrong for Liverpool

Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita returns to the squad for Tuesday's Champions League match at Red Star Belgrade having missed five games with a hamstring injury.

Two first-half goals from Red Star Belgrade striker Milan Pavkov consigned last year's beaten finalists, Liverpool, to a shock Champions League defeat in the Serbian capital.

Mohamed Salah is still yet to find a level of consistency anywhere near last season, while Sadio Mane is still flattering to deceive at times.

Meanwhile, Monaco were handed a humiliating defeat that all but ended their Champions League campaign as Thierry Henry once again failed to secure a maiden win as coach.

Asked if they could not afford to drop points away to the group underdogs, Klopp said there would still be everything to play for whatever happens at Red Star's Rajko Mitic stadium. He elaborated: "They were aggressive".

Speaking to Sky Sports, Nicholas said: "This is a volatile situation so not taking Xherdan Shaqiri they're trying to diffuse the situation".

"We had enough chances to get back into the game but we didn't take them and got punished". That is the main problem. They gave everything. For us it was not clicking, it was not easy.

Barcelona make Lionel Messi decision about potential Inter Milan return
Barcelona have won all of their last four matches without Messi , including a 2-0 win over Inter at the Camp Nou last month. However the 31-year-old Argentine has travelled with the squad to the San Siro, and could yet be declared fully fit.

'Napoli found it tough when they came here and we knew it was going to be a tough place to come. You can only do the right thing in the right moment. Sign up now for a free seven-day trial.

When Red Star travelled to Anfield last month, Shaqiri was roundly jeered by the away fans, showing that his actions had certainly stayed fresh in the minds of some Serbians. That's what we have to try; to be ready for a fight and ready for a big game. "It made sense to make a few changes".

"I don't say it is already serious if you lose twice but we have to make sure it will not not happen again as the next game is an away game [against Paris St Germain] before a very hard home game against Napoli".

With return games against PSG and Napoli to follow this tie, Klopp was quizzed on whether three points are imperative for the Reds in Belgrade.

However, Red Star is a different proposition at the home and a record of 33 games undefeated in all competitions is some achievement.

"The people want to support their team, that's ideal, and we have to make sure we are ready for that".
