Jokanovic accuses Fulham players of lack of effort

With Paris Saint-Germain drawing 1-1 with Napoli in group C's other game, the Reds are no longer in control of the pool.

However, the Liverpool fan account @TheAnfieldWrap have now come back with the ideal response. "In general the shape of the team is good and we've played a lot of really good games".

Slavisa Jokanovic has accused his Fulham players of lacking fight and effort as they head to Liverpool attempting to rescue their season.

"That's a really tough job, and we have no problem with that".

"We made life a bit too easy tonight for Belgrade, that's the main problem". If we had the same form two years ago people would say that's great but now we always compare to last season.

"We played well and managed to shut them out", said the Australian defender.

But Red Star were worthy of the victory - the first they have claimed in the Champions League for 26 years - in front of a noisy and passionate home crowd in the Rajko Mitic Stadium.

Last weekend's draw at Arsenal and a shock Champions League loss at Red Star Belgrade have somewhat stalled the momentum Liverpool built across an unbeaten start in the league. We have better circumstances than other clubs.

Anti-Brexit protest in London calls for second referendum
Organisers claim 700,000 people turned out, while Scotland Yard said it was unable to estimate the size of the crowds. Protocols have been developed on how Brexit will impact Gibraltar and the UK's military base in Cyprus, she will say.


"All over the field, we didn't win the ball back well enough and the passing wasn't good enough". "They were phenomenal. They live for this, we live for this".

The outstanding Borjan again denied Salah from close range in the 82nd minute as Liverpool piled on the pressure but the visitors could not find a way through Red Star's packed and well-organised defence.

But despite their position among the leading title contenders, Liverpool have endured criticism of late after some erratic displays both domestically and in the Champions League.

Red Star's fervent fans were taken down memory lane before kick off, as several of their stalwarts who were part of the team that beat Liverpool 4-2 on aggregate in the 1973-74 European Cup were paraded by the touchline.

The Reds next face PSG in the French capital and will finish their group stage run by hosting Napoli. "Otherwise, it will be hard as the next game is already an away game (at Paris Saint-Germain)", he said.

The 53-year-old has overseen an overhaul of players at the club and has brought in those who are more suited to his playing pattern, with the result being that the club plays some of the most enthralling and captivating football, winning admiration from all over with their gengenpressing style of play.

"You will never score a goal against a team like Fulham with the quality they have only because you go in the game with the wrong attitude and think about scoring, scoring, scoring or whatever".
