Liverpool vs. PSG: Champions League highlights and recap

Mohamed Salah of Liverpool in action during the Group C match of the UEFA Champions League between Liverpool and Paris Saint Germain at Anfield

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has talked up the performance of striker Daniel Sturridge during his side's Champions League win over Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield this evening.

Roberto Firmino came off the bench to plunder an injury-time victor for Liverpool against PSG in what proved to be a thoroughly entertaining start to their Champions League campaign.

Thomas Meunier got one back for PSG before the break and Kylian Mbappe looked to have snatched an undeserved Group C draw for the visitors with his 83rd-minute equaliser.

Liverpool showed last season, though, that they possess the ability to outscore virtually every opponent, and they repeated that against PSG, who once again appear too open at the back to make a genuine run in the knockout stages.

Tuesday's game will be the first time Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain have met since the semi-final of the 1996/97 Cup Winners Cup where PSG advanced 3-2 on aggregate despite a second leg 2-0 defeat on Merseyside.

He posted: "I think I accidentally liked this comment while I was scrolling through the comments".

Firmino recovered enough to be on the bench against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night though and proved to be his side's hero after scoring a late victor to complete a remarkable three days.

With the wind in their sails, Liverpool continued to press PSG in search for a second.

A cross from Robertson was headed in by Daniel Sturridge 30 minutes into his first Champions League start since playing for Chelsea in 2012.

Salah was brought off two minutes later, and found his own curious way to celebrate Firmino's winning goal. I have never seen him as fit as he is in the moment.

And the beauty of having real depth to their squad is that the players who are in the team know they have to perform to keep their place. "I thought he was different class for 70 minutes, he was brilliant", added Robertson.

"I think Bobby doesn't need his eye to play so I told him", Mane said, via the Liverpool Echo.
