Rio Ferdinand names Liverpool FC star who is ‘nightmare’ to face

Red Star were banned from having any fans in the stadium because of trouble at a previous match in Salzburg, but it was barely noticeable so marginal were they as an attacking force.

Trent Alexander Arnold (6.5): he covered his area well but didn't do much.

Exactly 45 years to the day from the two side's first European encounter, Liverpool and Red Star Belgrade met again in a Champions League group stage matchup on Wednesday.

"Obviously times move on, and now I've got to be my own player and show what I can do". You can join me for Live Updates, team news and the goals as they go in! In the United States the game can be watched live on television on NBC Sports, kick off 10am ET.

On Wednesday night, Salah got on the score-sheet with a brace in the Champions League against Red Star Belgrade.

Jurgen Klopp's side made a blistering start to Group C, as Roberto Firmino scored a stoppage-time victor to defeat PSG 3-2 in a breathless contest.

That came last Saturday as Cardiff beat Fulham 4-2 in their first top-flight win of the campaign.

NB: said tweet was sent after his first goal.

Jurgen Klopp hopes Mohamed Salah's recent goalscoring form for Liverpool will silence his critics.

"You can not win only with offensive football, it's not possible", said Klopp, after the 1-0 win at Huddersfield on Saturday.

Midfield: Naby Keita missed the comfortable Champions League win last night due to a hamstring injury. Although James Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum have recovered from their injuries and should be in line for a place in the starting lineup.

Otherwise, it looks like a clean bill of health for Klopp, who made four changes to his line-up for the game with Red Star.

The early stages showcased the "average" Liverpool that Klopp referred to after they ground out victory over Huddersfield at the weekend, with passes misplaced and Red Star looking the more threatening.

Champions League victor Real Madrid earned 88.6 million euros ($101.2 million) in prize money from UEFA last season, while beaten finalist Liverpool pocketed 81.2 million euros ($92.7 million).
