Liverpool need to rediscover spark, says Andy Robertson

Liverpool lost their comfortable advantage in Group C after a shock 2-0 loss at Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday night. "That's how it is", said Klopp. They are one of the main contenders to win the Champions League; the team is made to attack for the title.

"You can't give teams that start", Liverpool midfielder James Milner said.

Liverpool's players returned to Merseyside for a training ground inquest into their Belgrade debacle as Jurgen Klopp leads the search for his team's missing "spark". "We can perform a lot better than the two [away] games we've had [against Napoli and Red Star], they've been off days and we need to look at that, of course we do". They're probably the only ones this season that we haven't, for whatever reason.

"It's still in our hands: if we win our next two games we go through, but that was a great opportunity missed for us".

Jos3 (@Joe_kop) in his reaction after the game said that: "Lallana is pure garbage".

"I think it's one of those periods we need to get through", added the Scotland captain.

A victory in Serbia would have consolidated Liverpool's spot at the top of the group but the defeat leaves them in a vulnerable position with games against PSG and Napoli to come. You don't forget about these results quickly and that's what happens. "We have to make sure in Paris that we do better". He is a very important player for us.

"We're still confident we'll get through but we need to prove that now". If - big if - we had scored early the game would have changed but we didn't. They arrived in Belgrade in first place in the group but has ceded the initiative and will be overtaken by either Napoli or Paris Saint-Germain, who meet in Naples later Tuesday.

"Everyone knows what it means to play at the Marakana (as the stadium is known locally), no-one feels comfortable with it and it puts wind in our sails because the atmosphere is much different than at other stadiums".
