Liverpool record Champions League firsts with seven-goal mauling of Maribor

Having failed to convert their dominance into victory in Moscow last time out, the Reds have the chance to claim only their second Champions League away win in nearly eight years - their last came against Debrecen in November 2009. Liverpool have won just two games of their last nine across all competitions. We have already wasted points even though the performances were good.

The former Arsenal winger, who has yet to start a Premier League game for Jurgen Klopp's side, said: "We're in an important part of the season where we want to get off to a good start and we've got a few results that haven't gone our way". In the last three or four games we missed many chances, if you saw the games you know we created many chances that we missed and we had bad luck.

"I think that everyone has confidence that the good result is coming, so now we are in a good position and I'm sure in the next games it will be the same".

Liverpool have now won just once in their last eight matches and at a lot of top clubs, that kind of run puts manager under pressure, but I get the impression that it is the Liverpool owners and their transfer policy most under scrutiny now.

Wells Fargo Bruised on Q3 Numbers
It has underperformed by 7.03% the S&P500. 325.61 million shares or 1.09% less from 329.21 million shares in 2017Q1 were reported. Ferguson Wellman Capital Management Inc. grew its position in shares of Wells Fargo & by 774.6% during the first quarter.

"We need to be good again and take the result, not think we have it already. We very, very concentrated, began very well in the second half and could have scored more, but that's not important".

Liverpool need a commanding leader at the back and a proper centre-forward and I assume Klopp can see this as clearly as the rest of us at this stage.

Two goals apiece from Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, as well as strikes from Philippe Coutinho, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Trent Alexander-Arnold delivered a stunning 7-0 win over their hapless Slovenian host.
