Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said he expects more from his player.

The German watched on in frustration as his team were comfortably beaten 2-0 in the Champions League by Red Star Belgrade in Serbia – a result which has jeopardised progress in the competition.

And he has warned the squad that he does not want to see a repeat performance when they take on Fulham in the Premier League at Anfield on Sunday in their next fixture.

“Look, I’m a human being and if I would be, ten minutes after the game, here and have a big speech then I would think I’m a bit silly.” he told BT Sport.

“It’s not what we wanted. We will go for the other games, 100%. But I have no message at the moment. We all have to deal with it.

“It was a game we lost and that happened not twenty times so far. We feel it, really. The boys are very disappointed, I’m very disappointed.

“We have to do better, we have to do better. Because we can do better.

“Tonight, it’s too late. We have a long flight home and have enough time to think about it.

“Sunday, Fulham is waiting. They saw the game tonight probably and will think: ‘OK, this team has weaknesses.’ We have to make sure we don’t have them on Sunday.” he finished.
