Liverpool face an uphill task to qualify for the knockout rounds of the Champions League after suffering a 2-0 defeat away to Red Star Belgrade.

It was Liverpool's third successive Champions League away defeat - the club's worst run in 39 years - and Klopp's side will travel to Paris Saint-Germain later this month before hosting Napoli at Anfield on December 11 in the final round of group matches. It was reported that a dispute between Buvač and Klopp was the reason behind his decision to leave, but it remains unclear.

"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.

Liverpool still have Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain to play and must now do it the hard way to finish in the top two. It's still in our hands and if we win our next two games we go through, but it was a great opportunity missed for us.

He said he faced political retribution this year in the form of an anti-brothel push and regulatory problems. By the time he died, it was too late to put another Republican on the general election ballot.

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. We had moments, we had kind of nearly-chances, the biggest in the last two three minutes and before that not enough. He knows you can't win on hugs alone, and will be doing everything possible to try to lift this Liverpool side back up to the levels we all know they can play at.

Sadio Mané, Mohamed Salah & Roberto Firmino will definitely start up front in search of the early goal that will set Liverpool up nicely for the night.

Forward Milan Pavkov headed his side into the lead after 21 minutes and fired a powerful effort into the bottom corner to make it 2-0 shortly afterwards. The scoring boots were off for Liverpool in a game the team expected to win. Then more or less straight away they score the second one and then the atmosphere was completely different, you could feel it. Still unbeaten after 11 games, the only points they have dropped came in draws against other sides in the top five in Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal.

The 24-year-old, whose career has stalled badly following his £20 million move to Anfield from Benfica in 2014, was caught liking a tweet celebrating Red Star's victory over Liverpool.
