Don't blame Neymar, PSG players all guilty - Thiago Silva

Liverpool have opened their league season with five wins for the first time since 1990-91 and begin their European campaign on Tuesday night when Paris Saint-Germain arrive at Anfield. But Mane has revealed he was continually trying to convince his forward partner to feature.

"I think this year we're confident as a team", he said.

Whether it was a result of Mane's refusal to leave him alone or not, we will never know, but Firmino told Klopp he was fit to play on the morning of the match and was brought on with 20 minutes remaining to score the victor.

While Liverpool found a late victor, questions have already been asked about the play of PSG star Neymar. "I texted him saying, "You don't need your eye".

Anfield played host to some memorable matches in this competition last season as Liverpool marched towards a losing final appearance against Real Madrid, and the first match of the current group stage proved to be another electric night of entertainment. In the 40th minute of the first half, Paris answered back with Thomas Meunier cleaning up after a offside Edinson Cavani. And how I said, bringing Bobby in after 70 minutes is a nice tool, to be honest, I really like that.

Salah's 44 goals last season ensured the Egyptian was viewed as one of the world's best players. In the end, the players looked out-of-place and didn't seem to be where they wanted to be.

"He was everywhere. He helped left and right and we was in the box when he was needed".

But Firmino, who came on as a second-half substitute after recovering from his eye injury, scored a superb victor in injury time to seal three points for Jurgen Klopp's side.

"That match gave us confidence. The squad is so strong as a unit", Joe Gomez told reporters. "With Bobby obviously struggling, Studge comes in and scores for us".

"It shows we have so much quality". Obviously it's big for us to compete against teams like that.
