Champions League: Liverpool makes headway in PSG home-opener

The 2017 Champions League Runners-up took the lead when Daniel Sturridge scored with a thumping header in the 30th minute.

Defender Joe Gomez, who has started every match alongside Virgil van Dijk at the centre of defence this season, believes the depth of their squad makes them more of a proposition than the previous campaign, when they finished in the top four and reached the Champions League final. Moving up the field we saw Neymar playing a more central role as a CAM, and fellow winger Di Maria, playing to the left.

But Roberto Firmino, a second-half substitute, had some plans of his own as the Brazilian latched home a stoppage-time victor to guide Liverpool to a famous victory.

Liverpool's ideal start to the season continued in the Champions League.

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

With a minimum of five games still to play in Group C this season - home and away against Napoli and Red Star Belgrade, plus the return fixture against PSG - it's likely that Firmino will catch Liverpool legend Rush. Then to be able to bring Bobby on after 70 minutes was nice.

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

"Obviously it's big for us to compete against teams like that", he said.

"PSG aren't going to pay for it in the French league, where Neymar and Mbappe don't track back and don't run around too much and still win comfortably, but that will probably work against PSG in the latter stages of the Champions League".

"We have to see ourselves at that level, but even though we do, we still need to keep making the point".

"I thought it would be a game of our front three against their front three, and to a man our players worked their socks off for 90 minutes with and without the ball - it was a fantastic performance by Liverpool". No game is easy. They beat Barcelona 4-0 in the first leg of the Round of 16 in 2016/17, however, the Catalan club completed one of the greatest comebacks in Champions League history when they won the second leg 6-1.
