Liverpool`s Firmino Better but Still Doubt for PSG Clash

The Liverpool star was forced off the field after clashing with Jan Vertonghen.

Facing fresh vilification for his diving, Brazilian football superstar Neymar should find a more sympathetic audience in the Champions League this week, even admiration. Amusing. I haven't seen it back, I only saw the situation from 60 yards away so I've no clue what exactly happened.

"Everyone knows him since he was 16, 17, when he impressed in Monaco's youth teams, and I saw videos of him when he was 17 and he destroyed defensive lines as he is doing now". I have no clue what exactly happened.

"But it's something with the eye and for sure at the moment it's not comfortable for him".

Firmino's absence would be a big blow to last season's Champions League finalists, who have started the Premier League season with five straight victories.

The Reds then face two ties with Chelsea the following week, one in the EFL Cup at Anfield before a league trip to Stamford Bridge.

But Klopp has stressed that his side, containing the prolific frontline trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, will also represent a stern test for PSG in the Group C opener.

In the second half, it was once again all Liverpool as Jurgen Klopp's side continued to enjoy more ball possession, but lacked composure to increase their lead.

The German boss said: "That was very, very good. We had 85 brilliant minutes".

"We thought that made sense but unfortunately they did not come through without any problems".

"The things they usually do usually work, but they didn't today".

A failed Cruyff Turn against Leicester City proved he was in fact human; however, Jurgen Klopp wasn't anxious and claimed he was 'really happy it happened because we don't have to wait for it now'. Liverpool, by contrast, spent more than $220 million on refreshing the squad and is now enjoying its best start since 1990.

"That was a tough game".

Silva feels the two attacks are the world's best, and he expects the teams to put on a "show". "We will try to avoid passes to him but it is a big job to do".

Liverpool upset Premier League champions Manchester City and scored five against Porto and Roma on their way to the final before losing to Real Madrid, which Klopp believes has restored some of the fear factor of going to Anfield on a European night.
