Liverpool's Firmino stoppage time goal sinks Paris St-Germain

When he gets possession, you expect things to happen - and he did not disappoint against the French champions. Klopp will likely turn to Daniel Sturridge in Firmino's place.

While Liverpool found a late victor, questions have already been asked about the play of PSG star Neymar.

He proved himself to still be the club's best finisher when he pounced on his first chance to power a close-range header past Alphonse Areola from Robertson's cross.

No wonder Klopp adores him. "You can not play at 95 per cent, you have to reach 100 per cent or you have no chance", said Klopp.

So far this season, Tuchel has given debuts to no less that five academy graduates but it's unlikely that any of the five will start the game at Anfield as the German tactician welcomes back his most senior players.

Salah, for example, is not looking 100% at the moment - he appeared exhausted in the last 20-25 minutes against PSG.

Liverpool made two changes against PSG from Saturday's win over Tottenham.

With all to play for in the second-half, the two teams took to the field knowing a victory could send them top of Group C in the early stages.

"Great performance of Daniel", added the Reds boss.

Green Bay Packers Aaron Rodgers concerned about knee
The decision is somewhat surprising, given the NFL's insistence on using the hit as an example of how not to tackle a quarterback. I expect the Packers to win the special teams battle, but also give up some points to the Redskins' defense.

"Then you can bring Bobby Firmino on and that helps a lot". I have never seen him as fit as he is in the moment. "That's a big club's mentality".

"The game also highlighted the strength in depth this Liverpool squad has, with Firmino coming off the bench to score a terrific victor".

"Liverpool more than deserved to win at the weekend but I do not think it was as sparkling up front as what it has been".

"I don't think this is a marker, it is just a start to the campaign".

Thomas Meunier pulled one back for PSG with a delightful left-foot strike to reduce the deficit before the break.

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. Why can Liverpool put their players into line and not here? Consistently they were so good, and that's why they ran away with it.

Tuchel is the latest man trying to achieve what Unai Emery, Laurent Blanc and Carlo Ancelotti failed to do but the German denied it was the only thing which mattered as they were expected to win Ligue 1 easily.

That win was a big statement to the rest of Europe too - that Liverpool are looking to hit the same heights as last season.
