England are now two points behind group leaders Spain, who they beat 3-2 last time around thanks to a brace from Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford.

It's always positive for the team and also for the coach to know that you have a good player on your side who can help the team and I'm very happy with the process.

"The season so far, point-wise, is really successful but it doesn't feel like that for two reasons".

While Klopp admitted his players were below-par on Tuesday night in Serbia, he said: "A lot of things are better than at the same time past year".

Midfield: Naby Keita was an unused sub against Red Star but Klopp says he's fit to start on Sunday and I think he'll be recalled as Liverpool could certainly do with his energy in the middle of the park after a couple of poor performances. We have to build on our situation, we have to get better, to get more confidence out of the season.

"On Tuesday (it) was a massive knock that wasn't expected". If not, then the current crop of Fulham players might just get a taste of how their 1986 team felt when they went to Anfield: despite Liverpool missing a penalty, Fulham lost - 10-0! Last game we chose an ugly way to lose.

"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". "For us it is not too important what happened previous year but for the people, and because of the squad and the signings, we have to use that and not the other way around".

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.

"People seem to be saying this season will only be a success if we become champions, but it is not like that". The football is good, a lot of things are really good, they caused City problems in the Carabao Cup. I can imagine how they feel in the moment.

"I would really be an idiot", he said.

Jordan Henderson is also back in contention after overcoming a niggling hamstring injury that's hampered him in recent weeks but Klopp may be cautious with the midfielder so he might be eased in to action from the bench.

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