Liverpool fans left fuming with Lazar Markovic actions following Champions League loss

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.

Liverpool went into the game hoping to open up a four-point gap at the summit before Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain faced each other later on Tuesday, but the visitors fell well short of expectations. "He needs two proper sessions for his fitness, which he will get at Melwood", Klopp said. It's still in our hands and if we win our next two games we go through, but it was a great opportunity missed for us. Last season we were scoring a lot of goals and they were going in and now they're not.

"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".

"That's the Champions League and there are no teams that enter this competition that give you wins", Lallana said. At times we've dug out results, in the Premier League more so this season.

Adam Lallana nearly got Liverpool back in the game moments later but his header was deflected just wide, and Sturridge then fired wide from just inside the box. "I don't think it determines what competition it's in".

Klopp regularly conducts analysis with his players the day after a game, having reviewed the match himself at least twice but Wednesday's debrief assumed a more critical air given the nature of defeat and the precariousness of Liverpool's position in the group.

"I saw a few games like this already and it is really hard to find your mojo back". "We're still confident we'll get through but we need to prove that now".

"I believe we can repeat this against Napoli".

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

It would appear that Liverpool have lost some of that bite that made them so impressive last season.

"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".
