  • Xherdan Shaqiri Sadio Mane Liverpool 2018-19

James Milner was left bemused by Liverpool's inability to make the most of their chances in Tuesday's shock 2-0 Champions League loss to Red Star Belgrade.

The defeat heaps pressure on Jurgen Klopp's side to get results against Paris Saint-Germain and Napoli in their final group stage fixtures, if they want to reach the knockouts.

Former Liverpool star McManaman believes Jurgen Klopp 's men could struggle to advance from the group, particularity if it comes down to the last game.

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.

Two first half goals from a €300,000 signing Milan Pavkov, the 24-year-old scoring his first European goals in only his 11th appearance, were enough to beat the off-colour Reds.

However, the German will have been delighted to have received a timely boost ahead of the game with two of his key players set to make a return.

A few minutes later El Fardou Ben Nabouhane, Red Star's top scorer, brought a fine save out of Alisson with a powerful drive from long distance.

"The boys are very disappointed, I'm very disappointed and we have to do better". Milan Pavkov thumps home a header from Marin's right-wing corner.

An away loss to Napoli took the shine off their win but they picked up their second win against Red Star Belgrade to top the table at the half-way mark.

Keita has travelled to Belgrade and while he is expected to start from the bench, a short cameo at the end of the game is also likely and will provide him with some match fitness as well as a way to get his confidence back up.

The English club have now lost both of their away games in the group stage, having been beaten 1-0 at Napoli last month. "Away games against top six rivals will be a test for them, but they will beat the rest of the Premier League sides easily and it leads the rest have to reach improbable heights to compete with them".

Klopp responded at half-time by introducing Roberto Firmino and Joe Gomez, although Liverpool still failed to break through a resolute opponent.

"This is why I believe City will be champions once again, as they are a winning machine that have plenty of margin for error in most games they play".
