Liverpool vs. Red Star Belgrade - Football Match Report

Red Star Belgrade, meanwhile, has just one point in Champions League play, with their last Group C match a 6-1 defeat against PSG.

Salah was clearly touched by the heartwarming gesture, and gave the fan his shirt in return, and could be seen applauding the rest of the stadium with the carton tucked under his arm.

Xherdan Shaqiri has said he has no fears about playing against Red Star Belgrade in Serbia next month despite the hostile reception he is likely to receive. I don't really care what people are saying.

"[Klopp] was very frustrated and you can see why", the 46-year-old added.

His key role in creating the opening goal at Anfield preceded a direct set-up for Mohamed Salah - with a deliciously deft touch - that the manager later described as "genius link-up play".

Jordan Henderson has been in position and the club captain since the departure of Steven Gerrard and Jurgen Klopp has showed no inclination to replace him during his tenure. That helps a little bit because I'm not in doubt, he was not in doubt, but if you are constantly asked about it then it's like, something obviously is wrong.

Speaking to The Telegraph, the Liverpool man insisted that he is merely going "there to play a football game".

"I think I have the quality and vision to give good passes and you can see that I wanted to give another good performance. The most important thing is to win as a team and it was brilliant from everyone".

The Serbian league champions had a couple early scoring chances but Liverpool quickly settled into their attacking rhythm peppered with some pinpoint long passes to Salah.

He looked accomplished and creative on the ball, whilst proving to be a nuisance for Red Star off the ball.

"I think he would say thanks to his team mates, its quite hard to score goals without these wonderful passes, crosses", said Klopp.

"I just want to say "thank you" for that", he said. "It makes sense that I first think before I speak".
