Champions League: Liverpool makes headway in PSG home-opener

LONDON ENGLAND- SEPTEMBER 15  Jurgen Klopp manager of Liverpool embraces Georginio Wijnaldum at the end of the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool FC at Wembley Stadium

Roberto Firmino came off the bench and scored a stoppage-time victor in Liverpool's entertaining 3-2 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Tuesday.

PSG, however, succumbed to a stoppage-time victor from Roberto Firmino, much to the disappointment of Tuchel post-match.

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. We know the players after the World Cup have struggled a bit.

Klopp praised the contribution of Daniel Sturridge, who marked his first Champions League start for Liverpool with the opening goal, and admitted it was a close call on Firmino's involvement following the eye injury.

"We scored wonderful goals, they were thunderballs".

Daniel Sturridge's Liverpool career seemed to be heading for a premature end last season but the striker showed on Tuesday he may yet have an important role after taking his chance during a rare start in the Champions League win over Paris St Germain.

"I wanted to see Liverpool keep switching the play and switching the play all the time, because that was always the out ball".

It is admittedly slightly worrying that his performances this season so far have in no way been reminiscent of last year's superlatives.

Brazilian Roberto Firmino was left on the bench after suffering an eye injury in Saturday's Premier League win at Tottenham Hotspur, allowing Sturridge to step into the side. But Firmino didn't have any issues with his vision when he steered a superb finish past PSG goalkeeper Alphonse Areola to send Anfield in ecstasy.

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. The Kop celebrated wildly; Jurgen Klopp joining in with his trademark fist pump, while Salah, infuriated for reasons known best to him, flung a bottle right down at his feet.
