Liverpool receive timely boost ahead of Red Star Belgrade encounter

Shaqiri I'm a Champions League winner I deserve respect at Liverpool Reports: Klopp Considering Dropping Shaqiri From Belgrade Visit

Jurgen Klopp said he only had 10 fingers when he was asked to explain what went wrong in Liverpool's shock 2-0 Champions League defeat to Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday.

A victory in Serbia would have consolidated Liverpool's spot at the top of the group but the defeat leaves them in a vulnerable position with games against PSG and Napoli to come.

In an attempts to "avoid any distractions" Xherdan Shaqiri's presence in Belgrade may inspire, Jurgen Klopp opted to leave the Swiss global out of his Liverpool squad for this week's Champions League tie against Red Star.

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.

Two first-half strikes from Milan Pavkov, a 24-year-old scoring his first European goals in only his 11th appearance, were enough to beat the off-colour Reds.

The CPEC involves a host of projects connects China's Xinjiang province with Pakistan's Gwadar port in Balochistan province. The shift in tone on the CPEC projects may indicate that they are a precondition of further Chinese economic aid.

"Champions Manchester City have raised the bar to such a high level that anyone with ambitions to finish ahead of them this season need to win every game to stay with them because they will not drop too many points over the course of this season".

With the confidence flowing, Pavkov then doubled Red Star's advantage six minutes later, holding off the challenge of Georginio Wijnaldum before steadying himself and firing home from 25-yards out. A few we had to make and a few we wanted to but it is easy to say it didn't work out in the end. They arrived in Belgrade in first place in the group but has ceded the initiative and will be overtaken by either Napoli or Paris Saint-Germain, who meet in Naples later Tuesday. "I love playing in a big atmosphere with the home fans supporting their teams and we have to make sure we are ready for that".

The English club have now lost both of their away games in the group stage, having been beaten 1-0 at Napoli last month. "I don't know how many chances, very good chances, we had tonight, but it felt like a lot".

Klopp handed a rest to Roberto Firmino with Daniel Sturridge starting up front and the English striker blazed over when it seemed easier to score with the goal at his mercy on 18 minutes.

However, Red Star is a different proposition at the home and a record of 33 games undefeated in all competitions is some achievement.
