Klopp apologises for Liverpool not being Man City

In his pre-match conference, Jurgen Klopp seemed to be very cautious about Fulham's attacking prowess and it might seem incongruent given Fulham's position in the league.

Fit-again midfielders Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita will also hope for recalls, while Xherdan Shaqiri - who was excused from the trip to Serbia - comes back into contention. I don't want to see a reaction, I want to see a good game with us fighting and understanding the importance.

A lethargic looking Liverpool side suffered a 2-0 in Belgrade, leaving Klopp scrambling for answers.

"But then you have to start new, and the other teams don't get worse".

"I don't believe we're the best team at defending in the box".

"We have only had two games when the performances level dropped", stated Klopp ahead of his side's game against Fulham at Anfield on Sunday.

"The spectacular football didn't happen each game but it didn't happen a year ago as well".

A middle ground needs to be found between this season and last, but it's easy to forget that it wasn't until the Christmas period that Liverpool really found their feet last season, and the headlines started being made.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: "I'm not sure how many Fulham games you've watched over 90 minutes - not only Match of the Day or a summary of stuff like that - but this is a really odd situation for Fulham".

Slavisa Jokanovic guided Fulham to promotion last season after winning the EFL Championship play-off final at Wembley, but the Serbian's side have taken just five points from 11 games on their return to the top-flight.

"Liverpool are a unsafe team to play against, and there's no better front-three in the country at nicking possession, and indeed the midfield three behind them". We need to be more motivated and be ready for a fight, be ready for battle.

'If we are confused, scared and play like kids, it's not easy.

Liverpool have won their last four Premier League matches against Fulham, though this is their first league meeting since February 2014.

"So many times I clean the dressing room and find the players who have the ambition to work, who have the ambition to compete", Jokanovic said. The boys looked much more mature, but not in the last game. Even if it's not Premier League, it's kind of this big gap.

The Reds have only scored 21 times in 11 games in the Premier League this season, with their front three of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane failing to fire at the same rate as last term.

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