Liverpool suffered a rare Anfield defeat as they lost 2-0 to Atalanta in the Champions League on Wednesday evening.
A combination of injuries and a heavy fixture schedule meant Jurgen Klopp fielded an understrength, makeshift starting XI, and the Reds were subsequently second best for much of the 90 minutes.
Atalanta took the lead on the hour mark, Josip Ilicic latching onto Papu Gomez’s in-swinging cross and prodding home first time.
The visitors doubled their advantage four minutes later, Gomez again involved as his delivery was headed across the face of goal to the unmarked Robin Gosens, who applied the finishing touches to wrap up victory for Atalanta.
