Mane: 'I told Firmino he could play with one eye'

Liverpool champions league

The Reds have only conceded two Premier League goals in five games and have a 100% record.

Roberto Firmino's injury-time victor inflicted a first defeat of the season on the French champions while maintaining Liverpool's 100% start.

Klopp claimed after the match that they targeted Neymar's flank knowing he isn't a great defender.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has said that Fabinho will take time to adjust to the pace of the Premier League, however, playing him in Europe against familiar French opposition could be the ideal method of integration.

Just a head's up, this article might come across as "preachy" but it's something that I feel compelled to write.

Then Mbappe stunned the raucous Anfield crowd with a clinical finish only to see Firmino grab the glory. "That would be amusing!" Both sides looking to dominate their group stage as they share similar traits in attack.

Neymar's display came in for criticism despite him laying on Mbappe's 83rd-minute leveller and Klopp revealed afterwards that Liverpool planned to target the Brazil superstar's lack of defensive work. Van Dijk conducted the back-line as he usually does and was able to provide the team with the necessary aerial threat (as it was PSG's weakness).

"Last season we knocked out Manchester City, then Roma, who had just beaten Barca in the quarter-finals".

It made for painful viewing for PSG coach Thomas Tuchel, who had seen similar scenes before.

Firmino was recovering from an eye injury sustained on the weekend but managed to get on the pitch to score in stoppage time and seal a dramatic 3-2 win for the Reds. Scotland worldwide Robertson has become one of the best left-backs in Europe since arriving from Hull City for £8m just over a year ago, and it was his cross that teed up Sturridge's goal on 30 minutes.

If he fails to prove his fitness. But last season's beaten finalists bounced back from the blow of conceding the equaliser to Mbappe after 83 minutes by claiming the victory that takes them to the top of the group ahead of next month's trip to Napoli.
