Klopp: Liverpool have to apologise for the way they win

Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic: "Liverpool are coming from a defeat and are hurt, we are hurt more than Liverpool and they will show some different imagination than the last game".

Jurgen Klopp has apologised for the fact that his side are not Manchester City. He made four changes from the team that beat Red Star 4-0 at home - not all by choice - and some of the second-string players did not perform well. I don't want to see a reaction, I want to see a good game with us fighting and understanding the importance. First and foremost, we really have to admit to ourselves a lot of things are better than a year ago.

"We are here to get results, like all the other teams", he said. "I give the people time for adaptation and for making step forward, now it is time for them to understand that we do not have time for waiting for some miracle". "You must be proud, competitive and fight at the last moment and make extra effort".

In all competitions, Fulham have managed just one win in their 33 away visits to Liverpool (D9 L23), scoring just four times in their last 17 games at Anfield. Arsenal before that was an absolutely okay game.

Liverpool are undefeated in their last 26 home matches in the Premier League, but the more significant statistic in this context is that they have a W12 D3 L0 home record against teams outside the big six in the past 12 months.

"It's all good. We can do better - that's always the case".

Netflix sued by Satanic Temple over use of Baphomet deity
Satanic Temple said it does not worship Satan, but instead seeks "to encourage benevolence and empathy among all people". An icon similar to the group's appears in four episodes of the supernatural drama, it alleges.

"Most of the time, 99% of the time, I'm really honest". "A few people think I am, but not that much if I would talk about goal difference before that game".

Alisson will start in this one, and with hopefully fairly little defending in the game, can continue to be involved more from a passing standpoint.

"I'm not sure I can expect that, but it would help if you would watch a few Fulham games before you ask questions like this. I am working for them so they can do this".

"The season so far, points-wise, is really successful, but it doesn't feel like that because of two reasons - the comparison with free-flowing football last season, and because City and Chelsea are playing really good this season".

Such is the quality of Pep Guardiola's Manchester City, that no-one in the league can really evaluate themselves based on their performances against them.

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 think there are a lot of teams who are underachieving but i think that you are more likely to stay in the business sticking to your guns".
