Neymar congratulates Firmino after Reds victory

Brazilian forward Roberto Firmino struck a stoppage time victor as the Merseyside club beat PSG 3-2 in a thrilling Champions League Group C clash on Tuesday.

'I said to Daniel before the game he is in the best shape since I've known him, physically, and now he had to use it - and that's what he did.

Liverpool raced to a 2-0 lead in the first half with Daniel Sturridge heading home the first goal and James Milner slotting a penalty in the back of the net. Firmino had been on the pitch 11 minutes by the time Kylian Mbappe equalized for the French champions in the 83rd minute.

Four months after the five-time European champions lost last season's final to Real Madrid, Liverpool showed its credentials to challenge for the title again by finding a way to tame Neymar and Mbappe for much of the game. I'm sure it won't be long before the Egyptian star is back to his best but until his performances improve, we're going to continue to see some fans calling him out.

He continued: "We defended well for most of the game but all it takes is one moment and they can punish you". PSG managed to pull a goal back before half-time through Belgian Defender Thomas Meunier, who netted with a smart finish from inside the box.

Neither Choupo-Moting or Shaqiri were ever going to stick around in the Championship but we don't think many people will have predicted both to have come up against one other in the Champions League six months on from suffering relegation.

"We've got a tough few games coming up - Chelsea, who have a 100 per cent record, and Southampton at the weekend", he said.

"We started slowly, and we were inconsistent in the way we wanted to play", Arteta said.

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