At the blast of the final whistle, Liverpool claimed a 4-0 win, as Red Star Belgrade fired blanks.

The Senegalese forward has gone off the boil in the league though since the 2-1 away win at Leicester City almost two months ago.

Swiss global Shaqiri, a close-season signing from relegated Stoke City, was seen by many as a squad player but he is showing the kind of creativity allied with work-rate that could earn him more playing time than expected. They did it eight times last season.

While Liverpool have made a positive start to the season, Salah and his fellow attackers have not been quite as devastating in front of goal as last season.

The raw statistics seem to justify Warnock's words given Liverpool are now unbeaten and second only in the table to leaders Manchester City. "One player, I think, said something".

After facing defeat at the hands of Italian side Napoli in their previous Champions League clash, Liverpool went into the game with hopes of a recovery.

This has raised speculations among fans and football pundits that Salah may have stopped celebrating his goals because he is not happy at Liverpool. 'Both are in a good way but will not be ready for then.

Shaqiri was arguably Liverpool's best in a rather lacklustre display against Huddersfield, and was again well and truly up there with the top performers in this match.

One of four players to join Liverpool in the summer - along with Naby Keita, Fabinho and Alisson - Shaqiri, no stranger to English football having played for Stoke between 2015 and 2018, has gradually assimilated into Klopp's first team.

Liverpool will be looking to secure a win over the lowly-placed side at Anfield, thus, making it three consecutive victories.

The Dutch global has helped transform a previously shaky Liverpool defence into one of the meanest in the Premier League since his arrival, just 10 months ago. "He has a big future at Liverpool, no doubt about that".

"While club officials remain in dialogue with the Cox family regarding initiatives to support them, it was felt appropriate that requests from supporters to show their solidarity were acted upon at the earliest possible opportunity".
