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

Jurgen Klopp decided to make some changes from the side that drew at Arsenal last weekend with Lallana coming in for Fabinho in midfield while Daniel Sturridge was also preferred ahead of Roberto Firmino up front.

Pavkov broke the deadlock 22 minutes in with a towering header from Marko Marin's corner after evading the attentions of Virgil van Dijk.

"We are keen to be respectful and keen to avoid any distractions that would take focus away from a 90-minute-plus contest that is important for football and only football".

The home side made a fast start and deservedly picked up their first win in the pool courtesy of Milan Pavkov's first-half double.

"We gave them too many set pieces before they scored, so they could kind of train it".

That lack of bite arguably allowed the second goal to happen, with Wijnaldum letting Milan Pavkov fire in from the edge of the box unchallenged. It could yet be a moment that they look back on and see as a turning point in terms of giving them the shock they need to rediscover their best form, but supporters are right to be slightly concerned after what they saw in Belgrade tonight.

A poor performance against Red Star Belgrade in the UEFA Champions League resulted in many counting on what went wrong for Liverpool.

"In the second half we were better, we had enough chances to get back into the game and we didn't take them and you get punished".

"I think it made sense to make a few changes, a few we had to make and a few we wanted to". I said earlier that I'd like to score against Liverpool and it came true.

"The atmosphere noise wise was not a problem for us".

Then Pavkov, Red Star's talented young striker, went off.

Liverpool finishes the group with a trip to PSG and a home game against Napoli.

While there may be some excuse in the fact that Liverpool dominated possession - 63 per cent - it is factors such as an inability to stick their tackles which infuriated manager Klopp after the game.

"All over the field, we didn't win the ball back well enough and the passing wasn't good enough". So they deserved the three points.

Liverpool FC will aim to get back to winning ways in the Premier League on Sunday lunchtime when they host Fulham at Anfield before the final worldwide break of the season.
