Liverpool fans shocked after James Milner chooses blue for coin toss

"It's a situation where we will go to the fantastic city of Belgrade as a football team to play football", Klopp told Liverpool's official website.

However, it's curious that Markovic is celebrating a Red Star Belgrade victory - against his current employers, no less - when he grew up playing for their fierce rivals Partizan Belgrade.

Liverpool had a lucky escape at the start of the second period - the referee failing to award Red Star a penalty when a shot struck the arm of James Milner.

Firmino has scored just once in his last 11 games for club and country, but even on a night when Klopp tried to give the Brazilian a rare rest, he was thrown on at half-time in Belgrade after his back-up Daniel Sturridge missed a glorious chance to put Liverpool ahead.

If Liverpool beat PSG, and Red Star draw with Napoli then Liverpool can lose to Napoli in the final game and still go through. "Pavkov scored two handsome goals, but all the boys played really well - now if only we could play like this every week", he said.

The result leaves all very much to play for in terms of qualification from Group C, which also features Napoli and Paris Saint Germain.

"In all areas, we didn't start and when you don't start well in the Champions League you can get punished".

Champions League group standings are decided by head-to-head record, so Liverpool simply need to better the 1-0 loss they suffered in Naples. We made life a bit too easy tonight.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Nicholas said: "This is a volatile situation so not taking Xherdan Shaqiri they're trying to diffuse the situation". I don't say it is already serious if we lose twice but we have to make sure it will not happen again otherwise it will be hard as the next game is already an away game [at Paris Saint-Germain].

The second half was little better for Liverpool and it took until the 70th minute before they were able to truly test Red Star's keeper, Milan Borjan.

It was Liverpool's third consecutive away defeat in the Champions League - the club's worst run at the highest level of European competition since 1979.
