Jurgen Klopp warns his players about away fixtures in the Champions League
Last season the Reds managed to qualify in second place after winning and losing three games.
But as Liverpool prepare to take on Genk at the Luminus Arena in Belgium tonight, Klopp has warned his players they must to improve.
“Last year we were lucky with how tight the group was that we could lose three times away and still have a chance to make it through the group,” Klopp said.

“That will not happen this year. It's completely different.
“We don't rely on home games or whatever.
“Obviously we like to say European nights at Anfield are really special but other teams can make a special atmosphere as well.
“We know it's not historically good what we have done (in the away group games) in the last few years, but in general the Champions League was obviously really good.
“We did the right things in the right moment but we don't rely on these things.
“We know we have to improve and we try again and again and again until it works out.”
Napoli currently top Group E on four points, with Liverpool in second place.
The Reds are level on three points with Red Bull Salzburg and Genk are bottom on one point, after previously picking up a draw against Napoli.
Liverpool come into tonight’s game off the back of a 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday.
The game at Old Trafford marked the first match in the Premier League that Liverpool haven’t won this season and they will no doubt be looking for a response tonight.
“We don't want to make Genk bigger than they are but they are at home and they can be annoying,” Klopp said.
“We have to be here with the right mindset.”
