Shaqiri left out Liverpool's squad for Belgrade trip due to safety concerns

Xherdan Shaqiri came on as a second-half substitute during Liverpool's 1-1 draw at Arsenal

So for that reason, Shaq is not involved and he accepts and understands this.

His first Liverpool FC goal came in a 4-1 win over Cardiff City in the Premier League last weekend just days after his man of the match performance in a 4-0 win over Red Star in Europe.

Kosovo-born Shaqiri made headlines in the summer when he scored a late victor for adopted nation Switzerland in a 2-1 win against Serbia at the World Cup in Russian Federation, and celebrated by making a double-headed eagle salute with his hands.

Klopp considered the local politics when he took a pragmatic decision to leave the player at home to ensure their visit remains a "football story".

Klopp isn't anxious about the safety of Shaqiri, rather he'd prefer to keep the narrative around football than politics.

"We have no political message, absolutely not".

"He is our player, we love him, and he will play for us a lot of times, but not on Tuesday". But we are not here for that, we are here for playing football.

Xhaka confident Arsenal will finish in top four
Having arrived from Sampdoria this season, the Uruguayan midfielder has adjusted quickly and is a partner to the 26-year-old. We know that to get to that chance, you have to get the three points in games like we had against Crystal Palace.

"For the club, Belgrade, Serbia and the whole region tomorrow is an important occasion, and we are looking forward to a spectacle".

The French champions go to Italy for a huge match later on Tuesday after Liverpool play. Walking down the tunnel we have to use that noise to our advantage'.

"It's the first name that popped into my head, and I'll probably be shot down because there'll be others who have done more, but for the price Liverpool paid for him, and how he's slotted in when they've given their regular front three a rest, I think he's done very well", Merson told Sky Sports.

"That's why we try to make sure that we can be focussed on football".

Dejan Lovren (muscle) and Naby Keita (hamstring) return to the squad but fellow midfielder Jordan Henderson has remained on Merseyside for extra training sessions as he finalises his recovery from a hamstring problem.

"Champions Manchester City have raised the bar to such a high level that anyone with ambitions to finish ahead of them this season need to win every game to stay with them because they will not drop too many points over the course of this season".

Speaking at the pre-match press conference on Monday, the Scotland global said: 'We have experience of playing in these stadiums and we have to focus on the job in hand.
