Liverpool slump to defeat against Red Star Belgrade

Milan Pavkov scores twice as Red Star Belgrade stun Liverpool

Milner baffled as Liverpool fail to take their chances in Red Star defeat

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.

Graeme Souness believes that the blame for how things went so badly wrong in Serbia must rest with Klopp.

A fee of £2.9 million had been agreed between the clubs but at the eleventh hour, Markovic had a change of heart and chose to return to Liverpool, where he is now in the final year of his contract.

"I think it's one of those periods we need to get through", Robertson said.

"Last season everyone was used to us scoring four or five goals", Robertson told British media.

This season Jurgen Klopp's side's priority is the Premier League, where they've started brilliantly, but they still have designs on trying to better their surprising run from last season.

Joel Matip, Daniel Sturridge and Adam Lallana were given rare starts in order to prove their worth to their manager but none of the trio took advantage.

The court's decision is not final and both the prosecution and Marcos' camp can still file a motion for reconsideration. "She can elevate it to the Supreme Court if she sees grave abuse of discretion in the Sandiganbayan's decision".


"Maybe it's not been as good to look at but we've been effective at it but, yeah, maybe we are missing a bit of a spark in terms of not winning four or five-nil in most games".

"We always knew he had ability - physical ability, technical ability".

"We had a very good win against Leicester and we were competitive in all of them. I don't think it determines what competition it's in". It's tight and it'll go right to the wire.

Back then, eastern European teams were genuine contenders for club football's biggest prize - Steaua Bucharest of Romania were European champions in 1986 - and Red Star had some of the world's best players like Robert Prosinecki and Dejan Savicevic. You don't forget about these results quickly and that's what happens.

"Napoli came here and found it tough as well, so it's a tough place to come, but we expected that".

"In the second half I thought we did better, obviously, we had enough chances to get back into the game, but we didn't take them and you get punished".
