Andy Robertson says Liverpool need to rediscover missing spark

Salah missed two good chances within a minute for Liverpool midway through the second half, forcing a good save from Red Star keeper Milan Borjan before he shaved the outside of the post with a shot from the edge of the penalty box.

"All over the field, we didn't win the ball back well enough and the passing wasn't good enough".

"We didn't start well enough and that showed with them getting the two goals", Milner added.

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.

"Wijnaldum let him get away, he should just foul him there, Matip and van Dijk are just backing off and backing off and the keeper should have stopped it as well", Steve McManaman told BT Sport. Andy Robertson described Liverpool's overall form as effective but lacking its usual spark, an analysis supported by the team's best start to a Premier League season yet also a run of three wins in nine matches in all competitions. "There were a lot of moments when we could get in control of the game and we didn't do it, we made the wrong decisions".

Speaking to Sky Sports, Nicholas said: "This is a volatile situation so not taking Xherdan Shaqiri they're trying to diffuse the situation. I don't think it determines what competition it's in".

Lallana insisted Liverpool's squad were accountable their off-colour display, and the midfielder expects there to be a positive response to the setback in Serbia.

Liverpool's trip to the Parc des Princes on 28 November has assumed greater importance for both teams after this week's results.

"I saw a few games like this already and it is really hard to find your mojo back". "It's a tight group and it'll go right to the wire", the left-back said.

It was one of the Reds' worst performances of the season so far, and leaves things very much in the balance now in terms of qualification for the last 16.

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