Klopp apologises for Liverpool not being Man City

I saw a few games like this already and it is really hard to find your mojo.

"We made it too easy for them".

"We have to start again, and the other teams don't get worse".

Milan Pavkov scored twice in seven first-half minutes to hand Red Star their first Champions League victory in 26 years.

"The first big chance for Daniel was a very big one".

Due to Manchester City's imperious form, however - having scored 14 goals in their last three matches - Klopp feels like he has to apologise after every win.

A hard-fought draw against Arsenal at the weekend appeared to take the stuffing out of Jurgen Klopp's side as they were slow to react to the hosts' blistering start.

While Liverpool are boosted by the return of Keita from an injury, they continue to be without the services of club captain Jordan Henderson, with the manager claiming the Englishman was close to a return.

Klopp then added: "The season so far point-wise is really successful but it doesn't feel like that - comparison with free-flowing football last season in a few games, and City and Chelsea playing a good season".

Tuesday [versus Red Star Belgrade] was not the same game as the Saturday before [against Arsenal], that's how it is.

Manchester derby is not the biggest game of the season - Pep Guardiola
Allegri had urged his side to achieve their first aim of the season by reaching the last 16, and a draw would have been enough. The Swedish journalist brought up the moment, "when you went out and celebrated, Juventus players were obviously very upset".

Lion Air Plane Hits Electricity Pole Before Takeoff in Indonesia
To avoid having the problem repeat, pilots may deactivate the stabilizer trim system, according to The Air Current's explanation. This warning extends to both Air Canada and WestJet pilots , since both the airlines use 737-Max planes regularly.

Ron DeSantis Elected Florida Governor, Andrew Gillum Concedes
In some states, a governor's power to sign or veto congressional maps could decide the partisan balance. DeSantis addressed his supporters at a watch party in Orlando on Tuesday after winning the election.

His drive and trickery on the ball should see the Reds play with renewed vigour in the middle of the park after a frankly shocking display against Red Star Belgrade.

So early on, Liverpool wasn't looking sharp.

Klopp's side were beaten 2-0 by Red Star in Serbia in what was their second away defeat in Group C.

It was the Serbian side's first win in the Champions League group stage in its maiden campaign in the present format of Europe's elite club competition and their most memorable night since it won the 1991 European Cup.

"We must accept this situation and go outside our comfort zone, because this didn't bring us a good result". Last game we chose an ugly way to lose. "They were phenomenal. They live for this, we live for this".

"That's a really tough job, but we have no problem with that, we go for everything". We all have to deal with it. Both were in the Champions League, both were away, and we have to think about that before we play the next Champions League away game in a couple of weeks.

Despite losing to Red Star, Liverpool still find themselves level on points from Group C leaders Napoli.

A loss to French champions PSG would leave them facing a nail-biting shoot-out with Napoli and Liverpool midfielder Lallana knows his team have no excuses for their predicament.

- Liverpool's first shot on target of this match came in the 71st minute.
