Reds fans demand THIS deal after Red Star Belgrade horror show

Liverpool suffered their third consecutive away defeat in the Champions League on Tuesday night, as Red Star Belgrade beat last season's finalists 2-0 in Serbia.

Liverpool went into the match as the firm favourites to seal all three points - a win would have left them with one foot in the Champions League knockout stages - but found themselves 2-0 down inside the opening half-hour following a Milan Pavkov brace.

The Serbian champions will hope that their supporters will make a difference on Tuesday evening and help them get a positive result to make some noise in a highly competitive Champions League Group C which also consists of Italian power Napoli and French champions PSG. We have to do better because we can do better, but tonight it is too late. We had the moments, we played good balls in at the right moments, but then we had the ball in the box and could not really finish.

Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge squandered a great chance from six yards out in the 17th minute.

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.

"We are Liverpool, a big club, a football team but we don't have any message further than that".

Liverpool midfielder James Milner told United Kingdom broadcaster BT Sport that Liverpool had problems "all over the field" in the first half and never properly recovered. "It's not the first time we've lost games, it's about how you react and bounce back, but we're thoroughly disappointed to come away (from Belgrade) with nothing".

The Reds have continued to enjoy success in Europe, with Jurgen Klopp guiding them to another major final last season.

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

There were plenty of candidates for worst player, but Daniel Sturridge's terrible first half performance was noticeably awful. Before that, Liverpool had scored in 14 straight games. 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.
