PSG manager claims Liverpool result was 'not logical or correct'

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.

Roberto Firmino went off with an eye injury in Liverpool's 2-1 win against Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday 15 September.

Liverpool begin their Champions League campaign on Tuesday as PSG arrive at Anfield, boasting the world's two most expensive players, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, as well as Edinson Cavani. However, he was outshone by Brazil team-mate Roberto Firmino who came off the bench to score a last-minute victor. I was disappointed with Neymar and Mbappe.

The 26-year-old did play a major role in helping his side equalise but besides that, he found it hard to get into the game and his body language was poor throughout the encounter. We only had one session this morning with Bobby but it was time you have to show faith in your squad, it was nice to see Daniel tonight and he paid it back 100 percent.

"It's a great start".

Milner added: "It is the ideal start for us".

Sturridge tried to change that, attempting to tee up Salah on the edge of the area only for Silva to intercept, and then Mbappe made a good run down the right for PSG only for the threat to fizzle out.

PSG are the dominant team in France, however, former boss Unai Emery was unable to bring them success in the Champions League.

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term to ensure their continued participation in the Champions League.

"We are talking about having a £50m player at your disposal because he is potentially a world-class striker".

"In the preparation, I have to make sure we know about it".

There were so many impressive individual performances as Liverpool deservedly beat Paris Saint Germain 3-2 in their Champions League opener on Tuesday night.
