After dropping two points in their last Premier League outing, Liverpool are out for blood and a midweek defeat in Serbia will also serve as motivation to return to winning ways as the Reds head towards the crunch festive fixture list.

On Henderson, Klopp said: 'When Jordan isn't available, we always miss him.

Jurgen Klopp has dismissed claims that Liverpool's season will only be a success if they win their first-ever Premier League title.

"He has qualities like Joe [Gomez] has, like Dejan [Lovren] has, like Joel [Matip] has, so that is really good for us".

Jurgen Klopp's side is in a strong league position, however, sitting two points off table-toppers Manchester City.

"We have really to admit for ourselves that a lot of things are better than past year". The comparison with a year ago and the free-flowing football, and Man City, Chelsea and the others who are playing a very good season as well.

An improved defence has at times covered for struggles further afield with injuries and form preventing Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane from rekindling the spark of last season.

The anxious father said the tracking device on the young man's phone showed it was still at the club, and "It's not moving. Authorities have identified the gunman and the handgun he used to kill 12 people at a southern California bar.

"We go for everything but we have to build on our situation, to get more better and more confident". I would love to say Hendo would have changed the whole game [against Red Star] but I'm not really sure about it. "We are here to get results like all the other teams as well". The boys looked much more mature, but not in the last game. I don't make a big fuss about it, just like I don't celebrate a good performance for five days.

Liverpool's goal difference is now 12 worse than City's, but Klopp said he was not focusing on that ahead of the game against a Fulham team with the Premier League's worst defensive record. "But we have to enjoy our football as well, because it was so far pretty successful". They caused City problems and are a really skilled team.

Joe Gomez will be fit despite an Achilles worry, while midfielders Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita are in contention to play.

Shaqiri told "The process is going very well - I think you can see that also on the pitch".

Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool can not think of goal difference as they will not underestimate Fulham.

"You will never score a goal against a team like Fulham if you go to win the game with the wrong attitude, and think about scoring, scoring, scoring".
