Roberto Firmino dons glasses on return to Liverpool FC training

Klopp praised his side for the "outstanding" way in which they carried out his game plan against vaunted rivals and for having the courage to "play football" as a mouthwatering group C clash lived up to its lofty billing.

The two most expensive players in the world then combined for the 83rd-minute equaliser that looked set to earn PSG a draw, Neymar assisting Kylian Mbappe to score.

Jurgen Klopp was full of praise for Daniel Sturridge after the Englishman's performance in the 3-2 win over PSG on Tuesday night.

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.

"There wasn't much space for Neymar".

The French champions were back in the contest four minutes later, though, when Meunier steered a first-time past Alisson from 13 yards out after connecting with Bernat's cross on the left.

Ahead of tonight's game against the Jets, Mayfield posted a photo to Instagram with the caption "Feelin' risky ". He finished the game going 17-for-23 with 201 yards and caught a two-point conversion in the third quarter.

For PSG manager Thomas Tuchel there was more late Anfield disappointment for a second successive time. 'It does not bring you one centimetre to a title if you talk about who is favourite and who is not.

"But the first five games don't win you a league".

However, wherever Neymar seemed to threaten Milner or Jordan Henderson popped up to snuff out the danger with one crunching-but-fair tackle from Milner leaving the Brazil global hopping around in the first half. "We could take Liverpool as an example with their deep, simple, fast game, with a lot of intensity".

Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold were superb at full-back once again, Jordan Henderson silenced his critics, Daniel Sturridge proved a point with a brilliantly taken header.

Liverpool thought they had a third after the break when Mohamed Salah had the ball in the net but the effort was ruled out by referee Cuneyt Cakir who correctly ruled that Sturridge had fouled Areola when the pair scrapped for a loose ball. And Liverpool are doing all the right shaping at all the right times.
