Liverpool were dealt a huge blow in their fight for Champions League qualification, Red Star's Pavkov the hero with a double which saw the hosts register their first win in this season's edition.
Liverpool enters the contest atop Group C with six points accumulated through three games, ahead of both Napoli and Paris Saint Germain.
"We need a creative midfielder ASAP, [Adam] Lallana not good enough".
The Reds have continued to enjoy success in Europe, with Jurgen Klopp guiding them to another major final last season.
The Reds are stuck on six points and will be jumped if there is a victor between Napoli and PSG.
Shaqiri would be a potentially controversial decision as Red Star fans are still fuming about the Swiss international's goal celebration against Serbia at the World Cup in which he put his hands together to form a symbol from the Albanian flag. The last one is a very hard home game against Napoli.
"I do not want to undermine the poppy as a symbol of pride within Britain or offend anyone, however, we are all a product of our own upbringing and this is a personal choice for the reasons outlined". We can't be letting teams get a start.
"We gave the ball away and that's not cool in a game like this, an atmosphere like this, a situation like this".
"If - big if - we had scored early the game would have changed but we didn't".
After the Premier League side's routine 4-0 win over the Serbs last month, the former Bayern Munich victor said he could "handle it, no problem", in reference to playing in Serbia. Still unbeaten after 11 games, the only points they have dropped came in draws against other sides in the top five in Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal.
"I have heard so many wonderful things about the city of Belgrade, and the country of Serbia as a whole, from friends and colleagues who've visited before, so now I'm really looking forward to taking Liverpool there for a great game of Champions League football".
