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.

The triumph extended Liverpool's flawless start to the 2018-19 season, but Gomez warned against complacency.

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

Dominic King revealed that Jordan Henderson will be restored to the starting XI for Liverpool's Champions League clash against Paris Saint-Germain and some fans on Twitter reacted in poor form.

"I think if you compare them playing in the same league that's slightly easier".

The French champions were well under par but nearly left Merseyside with a point, only for Neymar's compatriot Roberto Firmino to score a late victor.

Asked about his feelings in the moments before the goal, he said: "Angry - quite angry, to be honest". Bale has scored three goals and provided two assists in four La Liga games thus far.

His form at Rennes as an 18-year-old was unbelievable with 12 goals in 26 league games, lots of those coming from the bench. The Frenchman has followed his goal up after bagging a left-footed victor against Real Sociedad over the weekend.

Whether it was a result of Mane's refusal to leave him alone or not, we will never know, but Firmino told Klopp he was fit to play on the morning of the match and was brought on with 20 minutes remaining to score the victor. "The squad is so strong as a unit", he said. "Neymar symbolised the feeling of impotence which has accompanied the team for so long". With Bobby [Firmino] obviously struggling, Studge [Sturridge] comes in and scores for us.

'We were in trouble in the first half, but we showed character and scored.

"Although we see ourselves [that way], we have to make the point".

PSG next face Red Star Belgrade, who marked their return to the big time with a 0-0 draw against Napoli. He opened the bottle tonight and is ready now, so that's really important for us.

There were so many impressive individual performances as Liverpool deservedly beat Paris Saint Germain 3-2 in their Champions League opener on Tuesday night. No game is easy. Hopefully we can build on that. "We just need to keep the momentum going".
