Liverpool's Defence & Other Talking Points Ahead Of Liverpool v PSG

The French press were not impressed with his display on Tuesday as Paris Saint-Germain lost their opening Champions League game to Liverpool 3-2. An fantastic back-and-forth contest looked likely to end in a draw thanks to Kylian Mbappe's late equalizer, but a strike in the 92nd minute gave the Reds an impressive 3-2 win in the opener, earning three points against their top rival in the group. To come off the bench after his injury at the weekend is incredible really.

PSG are among the favourites for this season's competition but having started the Champions League in the same thrilling fashion that took his team to the final last season, Klopp insisted Liverpool's win confirms they are a match for anyone. It is very important for us to keep going on our good run.

"We changed the system because we expected a change from them". We needed all of our focus and we covered a lot of yards and closed all of the gaps.

"We scored wonderful goals, they were thunderballs".

Dominic King revealed that Jordan Henderson will be restored to the starting XI for Liverpool's Champions League clash against Paris Saint-Germain and some fans on Twitter reacted in poor form.

After being sent on loan to West Bromwich Albion last season, the injury-prone England forward's Liverpool career looked over.


"Daniel (Sturridge) played a super game". He was in the best shape physically since I've known him. "He was everywhere. He helped left and right and he was in the box when he was needed", Klopp said.

Jurgen Klopp made two changes to the side that beat Tottenham 2-1 on Saturday, with Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge coming in for Naby Keita and Roberto Firmino.

Firmino celebrated by running towards the crowd with one hand covered over his wounded eye, much to Klopp's amusement.

With a minimum of five games still to play in Group C this season - home and away against Napoli and Red Star Belgrade, plus the return fixture against PSG - it's likely that Firmino will catch Liverpool legend Rush.

Salah was brought off two minutes later, and found his own curious way to celebrate Firmino's winning goal.
