Well, although Jurgen Klopp would have been hoping to extend his advantage at the top of Group C, his Liverpool side flattered to deceive away at Red Star Belgrade.
Shipping two goals before the half-hour mark from forward Milan Pavkov, the Reds suffered their second away Champions League loss on the bounce.
Lacking creativity in their midfield, Liverpool fans appear to be hoping for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to make his return ASAP.
Oxlade-Chamberlain injury update
In the early stages of his tenure at Anfield, Oxlade-Chamberlain immediately endeared himself on Merseyside.
The England international quickly found himself as a key part of Klopp’s side.
Chamberlain, who joined the club last summer, was injured during their Champions League semi-final against Roma at Anfield last season.
The 25-year-old is yet to make an appearance in any competition so far this season.
Liverpool fans crying out for Oxlade-Chamberlain
With it now looking increasingly likely that they will be dethroned at the top of Group C, their chances of reaching the knockout stage will come down to the final frame.
Judging by the Liverpool fan’s reaction on social media, they can not wait for their England international to return sooner rather than later.
Can not WAIT to Oxlade-Chamberlain to come back la

Amazing how much we’re missing Oxlade-Chamberlain too. His runs from midfield really made a difference after Coutinho left and we look half the side without him.

I think it’s our midfield where we’ll fall short this season. Badly missing Oxlade-Chamberlain & suffering for Keita not producing yet. #LFC

I miss Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Not hating on him but it’s clear Adam Lallana’s injuries have gotten the best of him. He’s finished.

I support a football where Oxlade Chamberlain is our most crucial and valuable player.
