  • Reports: Klopp Considering Dropping Shaqiri From Belgrade Visit

The boys are very disappointed, I'm very disappointed.

He also predicted Liverpool to defeat Red Star Belgrade 2-0 on Tuesday in the Champions League fixture.

Strong, powerful in the air and seemingly an able striker of the ball, Pavkov's repertoire was too wide-ranging for Liverpool to cope with as he inspired the win with two completely different types of goal.

That is the verdict of BT Sport pundit and former Liverpool midfielder Steve McManaman.

"We need to cool the situation down".

Almost three decades on, Red Star don't have a household name in their squad and needed to qualify for the group stage through the playoffs.

The English side's most recent match was a 1-1 draw with Arsenal in Premier League action last weekend.

Much is being made of the intimidating atmosphere that awaits Liverpool's players inside the Rajko Mitic Stadium but defender Andy Robertson has urged his team-mates to lean on their experiences away from home previous year.


Alisson could do nothing, however, as Marin swung in the corner and Pavkov rose above his markers to spark wild celebrations among the fervent 55,000 home crowd.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said on the club's website on Monday: "It's a situation where we will go to the fantastic city of Belgrade as a football team to play football".

Liverpool have scored 48 goals in the Champions League since the start of last season (16 games), the most of any team in the competition.

Shaqiri was born in Kosovo, an ethnically Albanian province that fought a war of independence against Serbian-dominated Yugoslav forces in the late 1990s.

Shaqiri started Liverpool's 4-0 home win over Red Star on October 24.

A trip to Red Star Belgrade was always going to be a daunting one for the Liverpool squad but even they might have been surprised by the welcome they got prior to kick-off this evening.

Cascarino wrote for The Times: "Roberto Firmino looks to me like he needs a rest and I wouldn't be surprised to see Jurgen Klopp leave him out of one of the next few games".

A deflected Andy Robertson cross struck the Red Star crossbar in the second period while Mohamed Salah struck the post with a shot from the edge of the box.
