James Milner apes the Roberto Firmino look with elan

Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah did not appear to celebrate Firmino's victor against Paris Saint-Germain in their 3-2 victory at Anfield.

"Behind the scenes and at training we're all hungry to go for starting places. One of them a yard less tonight and it's game over".

"We've got a tough few games coming up: Chelsea, who have a 100 per cent record, and Southampton at the weekend. Credit to him and I'm sure all the boys sitting on the bench can look at him and they'll make similar impacts when called upon".

"Daniel Sturridge could be Liverpool's secret weapon in the Champions League this season, according to former Reds defender Stephen Warnock, who backed the England forward as a "£50 million player".

The 32-year-old was again in formidable mood in midweek and his efforts have been rewarded, albeit for a fairly low-key gong!

Having suffered a grotesque eye injury during Liverpool's clash with Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, Roberto Firmino was a doubt to feature in their Champions League tie against Paris Saint-Germain three days later.

Clearly unfit to star for his nation at the World Cup, Egypt limped out with a whimper in the group stages in Russian Federation and the start of this season has continued in that vein for the 26-year-old forward.

Hello good evening welcome to the 2nd day of the 2018/2019 UEFA Champions League.

Liverpool have made their best start to a season since 1990/91, winning all six games to date and winning new admirers along the way.

Jordan Henderson, making only his second start of the season, captained Jurgen Klopp's team to victory over PSG.

Just as key to Liverpool's performance, however, were the full-backs, who took advantage of the inability of PSG's wingers to retreat in defence and became a wonderful attacking outlet for the hosts.

"I think I accidentally liked this comment while I was scrolling through the comments", he replied.

Les Rouge-et-Bleu have cycled through manager's in past years in search for European glory, and Tuchel has not got himself off to the best of starts as he looks to be the man to deliver.
