Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic calls upon players to put in more effort

While Klopp insisted he was not concerned about the form of a side that have collected an impressive 27 points from the first 11 games of the Premier League season, he admits his side have not produced "spectacular football in each game" in recent weeks.

The Reds have a chance to quickly bounce back however and will aim to extend their unbeaten start to the Premier League season when bottom-of-the-table Fulham visit Anfield at midday on Sunday.

A decent-priced option is Liverpool to win and both teams to score at [2.46].

Slavisa Jokanovic has accused his Fulham players of lacking fight and effort as they head to Liverpool attempting to rescue their season.

Michael Owen blamed Van Dijk for Liverpool going behind to Red Star on Tuesday evening.

"That is in a year when our competitors are the champions of last year, two years ago and a refreshed Arsenal, a more experienced Tottenham, who have a similar number of points we have, and Manchester United turning around".

"For the weekend they are all available", Klopp said of the trio.

Naby Keita, who watched the shock midweek Champions League defeat to Red Star Belgrade from the bench, and Joe Gomez, a second-half substitute, are also available. And if we're being honest, it's something they're lucky hasn't hurt them in the Premier League.

"We could have had more points but the boys have looked much more mature and all that stuff but not in the last game".

Liverpool's strike trio have failed to replicate last season's blistering form so far this season, but Salah, Mane and the returning Firmino will be confident of scoring against the most porous defence in the top tier.

"We are right now not showing this quality or effort, we must wake up and when we lose the game we must know how we lost it; we can not sell our skin so cheap".

"People seem to be saying this season will only be a success if we become champions".

The England midfielder has been absent for the last four matches because of a hamstring injury but Klopp does not feel his presence would have altered the Merseysiders' fortunes in Serbia earlier this week.

"After Naples we played City, didn't we?"

Liverpool have won all eight home Premier League games under Jurgen Klopp against newly-promoted teams, scoring 25 goals and conceding just three.

"We all struggle a bit in the last game but it's not too important, I don't make a big fuss of it, or on the other side I don't celebrate performances after when we win a good one".

In their three Premier League games immediately following a Champions League fixture this season, Liverpool have scored exactly the same number of goals as they did in their European match (3 vs PSG/Southampton, 0 vs Napoli/Man City, 4 vs Red Star/Cardiff).
