With a startled league campaign already underway, Liverpool fans were be hoping that Europe could offer them something to cheer about for the year ahead, but things are not looking promising.

The Reds were already 3-0 down by half time and the game finished as their joint worst ever defeat in Champions League history.

"We played bad in the first half but usually we don't concede three goals," said Klopp.

"With Alisson in goal, you have to be really bad for that to happen. It looks like we have to reinvent ourselves. There is a lot of things lacking.

"We have Wolves on Saturday and they cannot stop laughing probably. They would say - and I would too - it is the perfect moment to play them [Liverpool]. We have to set up better in pretty much everything.

"In football there are always solutions. We don't play good enough, that is obvious and that is why we lose games. There is a job to do, my responsibility and I need time to think about it."

Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson said the players needed to "get back to basics" following a defensive debacle.

"We were miles too open. You can't come to a place like this and not be compact," he added.

"We deserved this result. You have to be ready to fight. We weren't close enough to our mates.

We have to wake up and quickly because we can't perform like that."
