"We have 27 points, conceded four goals, a lot of good things".

Despite eight wins and three draws in their opening 11 top-flight matches, Liverpool only sit third in the standings as defending champions Manchester City and Chelsea have emulated the Reds' unbeaten start. We are not showing this quality, we must wake up and when we lose the game we must know how we lost it.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has warned the Reds' fans against any complacency when they face bottom placed Fulham in their Premier League clash at Anfield on Sunday.

"But it doesn't really feel like that because there are two reasons in comparison with a year ago: free-flowing football in a few games and Man City and maybe Chelsea and a few others play a very good season as well".

Slavisa Jokanovic has come out fighting amid speculation that he is close to losing his job as Fulham manager, insisting he is the right man to drag the club from the foot of the Premier League and accusing his players of not showing enough effort and ambition during a run of six successive defeats in all competitions.

"We must work all together and be fearless", he said.

"You see this week, we struggle in Belgrade and they (City) win 6-0".


"We have really to admit for ourselves that a lot of things are better than a year ago".

"We must accept this situation and go outside our comfort zone, because this didn't bring us a good result".

That means Trent Alexander-Arnold should continue at right-back as he's expected to overcome a minor knock that forced him off in midweek while Andrew Robertson should once again start ahead of Alberto Moreno at left-back. That's why we could have had more points last season.

"The spectacular football didn't happen in each game, but it didn't previous year as well. But our football so far (this season) has been pretty successful", he added.

Midfielders Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita are both in line for a return to action following their respective hamstring injuries.

"Their football is good, things are good, they cause Manchester City problems in the Carabao Cup - it was good football".

"I said Van Dijk was the best defender in the world at the moment [before the game]", Owen told BT Sport on Tuesday night. I'm very happy to be here and I'm settling in very well, but I think it's going to be much, much better the longer I settle in.
