Goals:
Streller 52'

Complete disconnect in attack and a goal conceded from a set play. Stop me if you've heard this one before.

So rather than hash over the gory details about how Liverpool looked reasonably secure until conceding not long after halftime or how Basel actually became better after a 5th minute injury, forcing a switch from 4-2-3-1 to 3-5-2, I'm going to focus on something else.

Liverpool prepare for their second Champions League fixture of the season on Wednesday night as Brendan Rodgers will pair his XI up against Basel's. Unfortunately for the Reds Daniel Sturridge is still unavailable through injury whilst Mamadou Sakho has not made the line up also due to injury but perhaps also down to his antics prior to the Everton game.

Once again, it's still too soon for Daniel Sturridge, who didn't travel with the team to Switzerland.

CSKA Moscow are the only bad team, while Ludogorets Razgrad have been unlucky to lose to Liverpool and Real Madrid.
