Late Firmino strike gives Liverpool 3-2 Champions League win over PSG

Late Firmino strike gives Liverpool 3-2 Champions League win over PSG

And Neymar had some kind words for the Liverpool forward after his winning goal.

"But all players need a rest, especially when you are in Europe and the games come thick and fast, and there are going to be times when Sturridge, and others, will get their chance". Liverpool stormed to the final last season after their front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah were simply unstoppable and they'll be a handful for the PSG defence.

Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool proved they can "climb any mountain" as victory over Paris St-Germain showed his team have stepped up a level after last season's Champions League heartbreak.

Liverpool's English striker Daniel Sturridge celebrates with teammates after scoring the team's first goal 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.

There were many times at Barcelona when Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez would display their annoyance with Neymar's decision-making and habit of holding on to the ball a little bit too long, but he would get away with it at the Camp Nou because the players around him made up for his shortcomings.

"He went down a lot, then disappeared until the only moment of the game when he did anything, setting up [Kylian] Mbappe's goal", the comment read.

"We were in trouble in the first half, but we showed character and scored", said the Brazil worldwide defender.

"It's still so unbelievably hard, you can't plan it". It's not that you can plan it or whatever, you see what the boys make of the match plan - it's extraordinary, it's outstanding, to be honest.

The visitors nearly caught them napping four minutes later as a corner routine found Mbappe in space, but the French forward fired over from 11 yards out.

"We played a midfield who played a lot of times last season together, that was the reason for that performance". That's so cool for him, for us, such a big, important sign.

The one saving grace for Neymar is that he has Mbappe alongside him to put the finishing touches on his brilliance, as the French teenager did with his late goal at Anfield.

"I do not think that this defeat was a logical result", Tuchel said at a post-match news conference".
