Tottenham 1 Liverpool 2: Wijnaldum and Firmino sound Reds' title intentions

Liverpool will begin their 2018-19 UEFA Champions League journey in the Group C encounter against reigning French champions Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield.

Fabinho joined Liverpool from AS Monaco in the summer transfer window for an initial fee reported by Sky Sports to be worth £39.3 million. It's slightly disappointing we conceded when we could have been out of sight really, but you never sniff at any win in the Premier League.

"I always used to put Steven Gerrard up front because he had a massive shot", he said.

It is only the third time in their history that they've opened up a top-flight season with five wins on the spin and although it's early days, plenty of fans and pundits believe they're the main contenders to Manchester City for the title.

In 2015, Liverpool's bench included experience in the shape of Joe Allen and Kolo Toure, but also youngsters Jerome Sinclair, Connor Randall, Jordon Ibe and Joao Teixeia, with Adam Bogdan as reserve keeper.

A role he should have no worries about undertaking, Salah could switch from the flank and it could see Xherdan Shaqiri handed his first start of the season, as he can join Sadio Mane on the wings with that duo providing Salah with the service, and Mane and Salah can interchange with each other to upset the PSG defensive line.

It is also the busiest time of year for Plaza Garibaldi, a beloved but seedy square that draws heavily on Mexican folklore. Four people died initially and a fifth died of her wounds at a hospital Saturday afternoon, authorities said.

Besides Jaitley, the alternative mechanism includes defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman and railway minister Piyush Goyal. The newly merged entity would be the third largest bank of the country, said Financial Services Secretary Rajiv Kumar.

Director Glenn Weiss proposes to girlfriend after winning Emmy
If there's one moment that we'd say won the 2018 Emmy Awards , it'd be this one. "I didn't even ask yet", Weiss joked . Jan Svendsen looked shocked at the declaration - nearly as shocked as Leslie Jones , whose reaction was priceless.

Jürgen Klopp's men scored 47 goals in 15 European games last season to set a new record for the Champions League.

The lack of depth in Tottenham's squad is clear - particularly the lack of a quality backup striker to Kane - after being the only Premier League team to make no offseason additions.

The Reds forward has revealed that long before his move to Anfield was ever a possibility he would play with the famous 2005 team on Federation Internationale de Football Association.

The Reds came so agonisingly close to their sixth triumph in Europe's biggest club competition last season where they were beaten by 13-time-champions Real Madrid who made it three-in-a-row to claim the famous trophy once again. How we deal with that, I don't know.

The Brazilian forward took a finger to the eye during the Reds' 2-1 win against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon and may not recover in time to take on PSG. At that moment, we said to ourselves: 'We have done it, perhaps we can do it again'. "But we need any help we can get". Not even City last season played the flawless season. We don't know exactly when.

Hugo Lloris, who won the World Cup with France, is out injured and Tottenham was reliant on Michel Vorm in goal against Liverpool.
