  • Jurgen Klopp chats with Liverpool's Xherdan Shaqiri as he's substituted

England are now two points behind group leaders Spain, who they beat 3-2 last time around thanks to a brace from Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford.

"We have 27 points, conceded four goals, a lot of good things".

Liverpool's hopes of qualifying for this season's Champions League knockout rounds suffered a blow on Tuesday night with that shock 2-0 defeat away at Red Star Belgrade.

Klopp insists he has "no problem" with the competition and says Liverpool will continue to "go for everything".

Boeing is said close to issuing warning on 737 Max after crash
The Lion Air investigation comes after Indonesia's government ordered an inspection of all Boeing 737 Max 8 planes in the country. Southwest had 23 737 Max 8 in its fleet as of September 30, with nine more to be delivered by the end of the year.

"The season so far-wise, points-wise in the Premier League, has been really successful", the German said. First and foremost, we really have to admit to ourselves a lot of things are better than a year ago.

Jurgen Klopp believes the expectation placed upon Liverpool following their finest ever start to a Premier League season means only becoming champions will qualify as a success. We go for everything but we have to build on our situation, to get better and more confident. On Tuesday was a rather massive knock that wasn't expected.

"We are here to get results, like all the other teams", he said. We were in the Champions League final past year and that's the last impression, with all the spectacular games and whatever. I know still a lot of people - maybe us as well - compare a Premier League game which we win with the best game of last season.

"We don't want to lose football games and if it happens you always have to show a reaction".

However, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor was not on Ernesto Valverde's 18-man squad when it was released prior to the match. We have to prepare for the game well. "We would like to win and seal qualification for the knockout stage".

"I would really be an idiot", he said.

"Behind us is a long two and a half years, to give up after a few months; I will repeat, (the) battle will be tough, we will be strong". I can imagine how they feel in the moment.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson and fellow midfielder Naby Keita are both available again for the visit of Fulham.

Jokanovic led Fulham to promotion via the play-offs in May and less than five months later is under mounting pressure, with Fulham's former captain and current first-team coach Scott Parker linked with the manager's post should, as some expect, Jokanovic be sacked during the global break which follows Sunday's visit to Liverpool.

Raheem Sterling labels title-rivals Liverpool 'brilliant' as City go top
Sterling then quickly laid on the second as Aguero became the ninth player to reach the landmark of 150 Premier League goals. Two assists, a key role for Silva's goal and two strikes of his own - there is not much more Sterling could have done.

Klopp also touched on the standards of performance that the champions Manchester City are setting, the style and substance of which, he feels, mean just winning doesn't seem like enough to the pack chasing them for supremacy in English football.
