Why Liverpool fans are not negative about Red Star Champions League clash

There are indications that Liverpool fans are not positive ahead of the team’s outing in the Champions League game against Red Star Belgrade on Wednesday night.

Having started the season on the high, there is a seeming drop in the level of play and results coming from the Anfield and that could be raising concern among fans.

Starting from their 1-0 defeat that was suffered in Italy against Napoli, the Anfield side returned from the international break to find it difficult against Huddersfield as they struggled to pull a 1-0 win, all thanks to Mohamed Salah.

However, with the reports that manager Jurgen Klopp plans to play birthday boy, Fabinho in the Champions League clash against Red Star, the fans are beginning to fume knowing that he has not started any game in the Champions League this season.

More to that, the video of the team singing a happy birthday song leaked on the social media which has forced a recall of the birthday song that was sang for Firmino ahead of the Napoli game.

Similarities have been drawn to both scenarios with the insinuation that the same results could be produced in the game against Red Star since a birthday boy has been celebrated just like the one prior to the Napoli defeat.

It would be recalled that just like what is playing out now, a video had leaked showing the team sing birthday song to celebrate Firmino ahead of the Champions League game against Napoli and the game eventually ended in a defeat.
