Roberto Firmino gives update on eye injury after PSG win

We played a midfield that played a lot together a year ago.

The win extended Liverpool's ideal start that includes 5 consecutive wins in the Premier League.

"It is still so unbelievably hard". What the boys make of the match plan is extraordinarily outstanding to be honest, one of them a yard less tonight and game over.

Neither Choupo-Moting or Shaqiri were ever going to stick around in the Championship but we don't think many people will have predicted both to have come up against one other in the Champions League six months on from suffering relegation.

"They had a very poor game, Mbappe and Neymar".

It was the 29-year-old's first start in the competition for Liverpool and his first start in the Champions League since he was part of Chelsea's title-winning team in 2012.


It didn't help that Jurgen Klopp revealed after the game that Liverpool had purposefully targeted the Brazilian's lack of defensive discipline as a weakness.

What were Di Maria and Marquinhos doing in positions that they normally don't play in? When the ball was passed back to him, his distribution was solid as you could see he was trying to find the long balls down the middle to our front three which is always a positive sight.

Liverpool are back in action this weekend at Anfield when they host Southampton on Saturday afternoon.

The manager put him on the bench, but brought him on with 20 minutes to go and he scored the added-time victor to extend Liverpool's 100 per cent record to six matches.

"The day before yesterday (there) was no chance (for Firmino to play), and yesterday". Daniel Sturridge got his head to an Andrew Robertson cross and put it in the back of the net to open the scoring for Liverpool 30 minutes in.

But Firmino had the final word, Klopp winding down the clock by bringing on Fabinho for his debut, Mane making way for him with seconds to go.
