Liverpool legend claims Neymar could never play for Klopp

Liverpool will look to maintain their ideal start to the Premier League season when they host Southampton on Saturday.

"It was not an easy game because PSG are one of the best teams in the world, but we played very well and deserved to win".

However, Roberto Firmino - emerging from the bench following his eye injury - struck in stoppage time to seal a thrilling 3-2 triumph.

"I think it's a big result (against PSG) honestly".

Gomez continues to glisten in the heart of defence, and as you go through Liverpool's teamsheet that think of the titanic individual showings that filtered into a strong team display, it belies belief that they so almost squandered their good work by ceding a two-goal lead. Moving up the field we saw Neymar playing a more central role as a CAM, and fellow winger Di Maria, playing to the left.

On paper, Tuesday's Champions League showdown between Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain had the potential to be something special.

"I think this year we're confident as a team". It is very important for us to keep going on our good run.

"With Bobby (Firmino) obviously struggling, Studge (Daniel Sturridge) comes in and scores for us".

Liverpool edged the possession stats and appeared to be in control for much of the game, leading some commentators to compare the quality of the Premier League and Ligue 1. We only had one session this morning with Bobby but it was time you have to show faith in your squad, it was nice to see Daniel tonight and he paid it back 100 percent.

Liverpool's German manager Jurgen Klopp gestures during the UEFA Champions League group C football match between Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield in Liverpool, north west England on September 18, 2018. "And that's what we've done by beating both of them [Spurs and PSG]". Hopefully we can build on that.

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