Liverpool's stuttering start to the season has continued in the Europa League.
They were beaten 3-2 at Anfield by Italian side Udinese.
Brendan Rodgers' side were in front when Jonjo Shelvey headed them into a first-half lead from Stewart Downing's cross.
However, three second half goals turned the tie on its head. Udinese's captain and record goalscorer Antonio Di Natale levelled the scores early in the second half before a Sebastian Coates own goal and a thumping effort from Giovanni Pasquale made it 3-1. A terrific free kick from Luis Suarez concluded a burst of three goals in five minutes. But the Italians held on to claim a victory that leaves Liverpool third in Group A.
Rodgers blamed laziness for the defeat: "It's quite straightforward. We were very, very good in the first half and the problem we had in the first 15 or 20 minutes of the second half had been with us since the start of the season.
"We lose concentration and become lazy and in that period we go 3-1 down.
"We just concede goals too easily, that's something we need to improve on. We can't have to score three, four or five goals to win games.
"We're just disappointed after such a good first half to give away such poor goals in the second half to leave us chasing the game."
Tottenham are still searching for their first win in the Europa League this season, after being held to a 1-1 draw at Panathinaikos. Recalled defender Michael Dawson headed Spurs into the lead in Greece. But he went from hero to zero with less than fifteen minutes remaining. He was caught for pace by striker Toche, who earned a point for the hosts.
Andre Villas-Boas denied that his side were complacent in Greece: "We have to give credit to Panathinaikos, they pressed much more and started to gain belief from that and that led to the goal.
"I think the whole team felt a bit disappointed because the first half was so positive and we were in control of situation.
"We were a bit sloppy in the second half. I understand the disappointment at not putting the game to bed, but in the end we congratulated the players because if it had been other way round, the whole perspective would have been different.
"Panathinaikos came at us very strong in the second half, they made a change with Ibrahim Sissoko. He improved the quality of their game and could not stay in control of game so much in second half."
Newcastle's Europa League campaign is up and running. They comfortably saw off Bordeaux at the Sports Direct Arena. Shoala Ameobi, Papiss Cisse and own goal by Henrique gave them a 3-0 victory.
