Red Star Belgrade vs. Liverpool - Football Match Report

Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino celebrates with his teammates after scoring his goal during the Uefa Champions League Group Stage football match n.3 LIVERPOOL- CRVENA ZVEZDA on 24/10/2018 at the Anfield Road in Liverpool England Charlie Nicholas states his prediction for Red Star Belgrade v Liverpool FC

Klopp's decision to introduce Daniel Sturridge, Adam Lallana and Joël Matip into the starting lineup against Red Star arguably contributed to the disjointed display but Robertson denies Liverpool's focus has wavered outside the Premier League.

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.

"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.

However, despite some improvement, Liverpool couldn't find a way through with Sadio Mane somehow failing to finish from close range and Mohamed Salah seeing a snapshot clip the post.

Having thrashed the Serbian SuperLiga leaders 4-0 a fortnight ago at Anfield, Jurgen Klopp's side will be hoping to repeat their heroics away from home in order to strengthen their stranglehold at the top of their group, ahead of key encounters against Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain. It's no secret amongst Kopites that Liverpool have yet to hit top gear this season. They saw the game tonight probably and will think: "'OK, this team has weaknesses.' We have to make sure we don't have them on Sunday". They could still win club football's biggest prize.

"We were not surprised by Red Star's tactics".

Saints, Dez Bryant negotiating deal after workout
Third-round rookie Tre'Quan Smith has started four games this season, tallying 214 yards and three touchdowns through eight games. Bryant visited New Orleans on Monday, working out with fellow wideouts Brandon Marshall and Kamar Aiken .

Liverpool midfielder James Milner told United Kingdom broadcaster BT Sport that Liverpool had problems "all over the field" in the first half and never properly recovered.

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.

Although Liverpool are sitting pretty atop their Champions League group, the visit to Belgrade definitely seems by far the easier of the three remaining ties and should provide more than the required motivation for the men in Red to come back with a victory.

The match was turned on its head in the 22nd minute when Milan Pavkov headed in from a corner.

The visitors almost got lucky 10 minutes after half-time when Andrew Robertson's deflected cross bounced back off the top of the crossbar.

When Sturridge's right-footed shot on the turn deflected for a corner, the tide turned as the hosts turned the screw.
