Manager Jurgen Klopp said Liverpool struggled to "find their mojo" as two early goals from Milan Pavkov gave Red Star Belgrade a shock victory in their Champions League group-stage encounter.

"The season so far-wise, points-wise in the Premier League, has been really successful", Klopp told reporters. This game is a big challenge for all of us.

Klopp also pointed out that it is going to take something extra special for any other club to snatch the league title from Guardiola and co.

"You have to remember our competitors are champions of last year and two years ago, and a refreshed Arsenal and Tottenham and Manchester United are still there - but we go for everything".

"It's all good, we can do better but that is always the case".

"The comparisons to last year's free-flowing football - and Man City, Chelsea, maybe a few others play a really good season as well so it should not be a surprise for us".

"It was more a general meeting about our situation and what we expect from ourselves", he said.

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.

"I saw a few games like this already and it is really hard to find your mojo", Klopp said.

Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane weren't at their best in midweek but I think Klopp will stick with his star attackers as they should have plenty of opportunities to shine against a poor Fulham defence this weekend.

Victory on Sunday would give the club a timely boost heading into the worldwide break, although Klopp warned fans not to have a late one on Saturday night.

"Their football is good, things are good, they cause Manchester City problems in the Carabao Cup - it was good football".

"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".
