Jokanovic accuses Fulham players of lack of effort

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was not happy after Red Star defeat

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was not happy after Red Star defeat

However, given Liverpool's defensive record in the league (only 5 goals conceded so far), Fulham have little chance of adding a lot to Liverpool's goal conceded column. I would love to say Hendo would have changed the whole game [against Red Star] but I'm not really sure about it.

The Reds suffered a 2-0 loss at Champions League rivals Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday night but focus now shifts to domestic duties and a home tie against the side bottom of the table.

Klopp said: "We have a wonderful perspective, it's all good". We have to admit a lot of things are better than previous year by the start of November, but spectacular football in each game hasn't happened. The season so far point-wise is really successful but it doesn't feel like that - comparison with free-flowing football last season in a few games, and City and Chelsea playing a good season. We don't want to lose football games, you always have to show a reaction, that's clear.

"That's a really tough job but we have no problem with that, we go for everything".

"Now we have to react for us in the right way, not only on Sunday, but in general".

Mohamed Salah's wonderful goal contributions last time have raised the expectations so high that 8 Premier League goal contributions (5 scored, 3 assisted) in just 11 games seems to be less.

While Jurgen Klopp has led Liverpool to victories in eight home Premier League games against newly-promoted teams, Fulham have taken only one point from their last 18 Premier League games against the Big Six sides (W0 D1 L17). "But in the games before, it was absolutely OK".

The game will be available on BT Sport 1 HD, in stunning ultra-high definition on BT Sport 4K UHD and online via the revolutionary enhanced video player. We use the good things and work on the less good things.

Liverpool's goal difference is now 12 worse than City's, but Klopp said he was not focusing on that ahead of the game against a Fulham team with the Premier League's worst defensive record.

"Most of the time, 99% of the time, I'm really honest". "A few people think I am, but not that much if I would talk about goal difference before that game". They are professional. I do not defend a corner.

"And I don't see them struggling against Fulham either".

Such is the quality of Pep Guardiola's Manchester City, that no-one in the league can really evaluate themselves based on their performances against them.

Klopp said Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita and Joe Gomez were all available for selection on Sunday.

"You will never score a goal against a team like Fulham if you go to win the game with the wrong attitude and think about scoring, scoring, scoring".
