Liverpool's Sadio Mane kneels to pray as he celebrates scoring the fourth goal during the UEFA Champions League Group C match between Liverpool FC and FK Crvena zvezda at Anfield

Adam Lallana is certain Liverpool will react to the disappointment of defeat to Red Star Belgrade in the right way. We have to do better because we can do better, but tonight it is too late.

Yet, even while Liverpool's results have remained positive, they have rarely been accompanied by the level of performance they achieved on their run to the Champions League final last season.

Liverpool still have Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain to play and must now do it the hard way to finish in the top two.

"Wijnaldum let him get away, he should just foul him there, Matip and van Dijk are just backing off and backing off and the keeper should have stopped it as well", Steve McManaman told BT Sport. We didn't start and when you don't start in the Champions League you get punished.

Liverpool have suffered defeat in the Champions League and Carabao Cup while sustaining an impressive challenge to Manchester City's defence of the Premier League title.

"But I will have to sleep in the morning because we have an important game this weekend". They're probably the only ones this season that we haven't, for whatever reason.

BLACKBURN TAKES TENNESSEE: GOP Candidate Defeats Democrat Phil Bredesen
Republican Marsha Blackburn , a member of Congress since 2003, was declared the victor shortly after 9:00 on Tuesday night. FiveThirtyEight had given the former governor a 1 in 5 chance of winning, despite overwhelming turnout at the polls .

Klopp regularly conducts analysis with his players the day after a game, having reviewed the match himself at least twice but Wednesday's debrief assumed a more critical air given the nature of defeat and the precariousness of Liverpool's position in the group.

"We lost our mojo in the game, not in general".

A daunting trip to the Parc de Princes awaits on November 28 - although a win would guarantee qualification - and Klopp hopes to have discovered a solution by then. "We need to move on and improve if we are going to go through to the knockout stages".

"I believe we can repeat this against Napoli".

Daniel Sturridge, who started up front in place of Roberto Firmino, sidefooted over the bar from close range in the first half and Mohamed Salah saw his shot strike the post after halftime.

"We made life a bit too easy for Belgrade".

Travelling to play the relative underdogs, the Merseyside club were expected to get a win.
