Jurgen Klopp admits Liverpool 'lost their mojo' in Red Star Belgrade defeat

  • 2 Changes: Predicted Liverpool Lineup vs Red Star Belgrade

"I saw a few games like this already and it is really hard to get your mojo back".

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

Daniel Sturridge failed to take his opportunity on Tuesday night as he missed a great chance to open the scoring at 0-0 and it proved to be a costly miss for the Merseysiders.

Jurgen Klopp has built a reputation over the years as an astutely sound tactician and has been largely responsible for the transformation undergone at Liverpool since his arrival in October 2015. They improve, and we do as well.

They conceded a goal from a corner and another from a loss of possession and quick counter-attack against Red Star. Naby Keita was fit enough only for the bench, while Adam Lallana made just his second start in Europe since 2014.

"The season so far point-wise is really successful but it doesn't feel like that for two reasons - the comparison with the free-flowing football (from) last season in a few games, and City and Chelsea playing a good season", he told a news conference on Friday.

"They wanted to strike back and they did".

Alisson made the mistake that results in Arsenal's equaliser on Saturday and he will want to make amends with a clean display against Belgrade, if he is called into action that is.

The hosts seemed fired up by it - winger Marko Marin was shown a yellow card for protesting in the fifth minute.

Klopp knows his Reds have been very impressive since the start of the season. There's only been two games (we have struggled), now Red Star and Napoli.

So early on, Liverpool wasn't looking sharp.

Two first-half goals from Milan Pavkov saw Liverpool lose 2-0 at Red Star Belgrade.

Red Star coach Vladan Milojevic was delighted with the performance, the first Champions League group stage win for a Serbian side.

"We have to make sure in Paris we do better".

Adam Lallana nearly got Liverpool back in the game moments later but his header was deflected just wide, and Sturridge then fired wide from just inside the box.

"It's good to have them back and it's pretty much the first time all midfield players apart from Ox [Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain] are available". We never came back into situations.

"That's a really tough job, and we have no problem with that". We all have to deal with it.

Next up for the English side is a trip to the French capital, on 28 November, followed by the visit of Napoli to Anfield.

The outstanding Borjan again denied Salah from close range in the 82nd minute as Liverpool piled on the pressure but the visitors could not find a way through Red Star's packed and well-organised defence. Paris Saint-Germain are third on five points.
