Late Firmino strike gives Liverpool 3-2 win over PSG

Late Firmino strike gives Liverpool 3-2 win over PSG

In the 40th minute of the first half, Paris answered back with Thomas Meunier cleaning up after a offside Edinson Cavani.

"That is why Klopp handed him his first start in a Reds shirt since November 2017 because, when you get Daniel fit and firing, you can not ignore him".

Klopp's side will face PSG for the second time on November 28.

"This just really shows to young players that are watching the game that no matter how much talent you have as an individual, you have to buy into the team work ethic".

"You can't make little mistakes because PSG are a top team and they will take every mistake".

Daniel Sturridge opened the scoring for Liverpool last night, while Nacer Chadli, now at Monaco, was also playing under the lights. "We picked ourselves up and played a better second half but it was frustrating".

And it was two for Liverpool with 36 minutes gone when, after Juan Bernat's rash challenge on Giroginio Wijnaldum, Milner fired a low penalty beyond Areola to put Liverpool in control.

Liverpool will be glad Firmino listened, as he proved to be their match-winner for the third game in succession. I am happy with my team's performance - the match was of a high level. Firmino made that chance count.

PSG is rarely so troubled at home, already sitting five points clear by winning the opening five games of its French title defence.

But Mauro Icardi's brilliant late volley brought the hosts level, and Matias Vecino headed in a stoppage-time victor for Inter, back in the Champions League for the first time since 2011-12.

The midfielder is expected to feature more prominently for Bury as the season progresses and he will be aiming to get enough minutes under his belt to go back to Rangers as a better player. "Maybe we need to improve in our intensity in some areas of the field".
