Klopp: Liverpool have to apologise for the way they win

Klopp: Liverpool have to apologise for the way they win

Jokanovic will be well aware that Liverpool's players will be fired up to make amends.

He said: "In general, the shape is good, we played a lot of really good games".

"For us it was not clicking, it was not easy".

"I don't see them struggling against Fulham", he added.

"We must work all together and be courageous", he said.

The former Liverpool man thinks Manchester City have been impressive in the way they have killed off opposing teams this season and has urged the Reds to simply focus on taking care of their own business.

Asked how he can change his squad's doleful body language, the Fulham head coach said: "They need to change the body language". The second goal was kind of out of the blue, we had the ball and gave it away.

Liverpool are expecting Joe Gomez to be fit to face Fuham this weekend, with all of Jordan Henderson, Xherdan Shaqiri and Naby Keita pushing for a starting spot.

Michael Owen blamed Van Dijk for Liverpool going behind to Red Star on Tuesday evening.

"We chose an ugly way to lose the game", he said.

Red Star Belgrade manager Vladan Milojevic spoke about how important this game was for his side before kick-off and hoped home advantage would play a big role.

Needless to say, Liverpool fans are loving the tweet.

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

"And, as well as the fact they lost, the worrying thing for the Reds was that they looked like a one-trick pony".

Aware that champions Manchester City and in-form Chelsea - both also unbeaten in the league - have garnered more praise than Liverpool, Klopp launched a passionate defence of his side on Friday, claiming only winning the title for the first time since 1990 will be enough to silence the critics.

"We can do better, that's always the case", he told reporters at the club's Melwood training base this morning. We have to do better because we can do better, but tonight it is too late.

"You ask whether they are the same as previous year".

"They were on their bikes and we had to deal with the situation".

"We are really ambitious and we want to take whatever we can get. We all have to deal with it now".

Fulham have conceded 29 goals in 11 games - the worst defensive record in the division and something Liverpool will feel they can exploit at Anfield.

Pavkov became the first Serbian player to net a brace in the Champions League since Aleksandar Prijovic for Legia Warsaw against Borussia Dortmund in November 2016.
