Klopp Reveals Late Call To Include Match Winner Firmino As A Sub

Roberto Firmino came off the bench to rifle in a stoppage-time victor at Anfield after Paris Saint-Germain had battled back from 2-0 down in Tuesday's Group C opener.

Sturridge opened the scoring for Liverpool with Roberto Firmino coming off the bench to net the victor in injury time.

Except for defender Dejan Lovren, the hosts have a near fully fit squad to choose from but are sweating on the availability of Roberto Firmino after the Brazilian suffered a painful-looking eye injury during Saturday's 2-1 win at Tottenham Hotspur.

The Parisians got themselves back into the game though five minutes before the break when Robertson, who had been outstanding in restricting Mbappe, failed to clear and Thomas Meunier drove home a first-time effort.

Liverpool had impressively kept at bay the visitors' feared forward line of Mbappe, Neymar and Edinson Cavani - scorers of 101 goals between them since the start of last season - for 83 minutes.

Liverpool kicked off their Champions League campaign with a dramatic 3-2 victory over PSG at Anfield on Tuesday night.

Conceding in the first minute of stoppage time at the end of an electrifying encounter at Liverpool is just what happened when Tuchel's Borussia Dortmund was beaten 4-3 by Klopp's side in the Europa League quarterfinals in 2016.

Firmino's affliction is nearly certainly supposed to be a temporary one, with the glasses set to stay on for a couple of weeks, at most.

The stats surrounding his display against PSG are as bad as you might think with very little positive coming from the feet of Salah as the Champions League got underway.

The 2017 Champions League Runners-up took the lead when Daniel Sturridge scored with a thumping header in the 30th minute. I can't say enough good things about Bobby to come off the bench after his injury'.

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

"I think it's a big result (against PSG) honestly".

"Behind the scenes and at training we're all hungry to go for starting places".

For the French paper, his inability to breakdown the Liverpool defence is not fitting of a player with his clout.
