Stunning late goal gives Liverpool dramatic Champions League victory over PSG

"It was a great performance from Daniel", said Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp after their opening Group C game.

Roberto Firmino saved Liverpool's blushes with an injury time strike to seal a dramatic victory, but the England global missed a host of chances to tie up the game - leading the former Arsenal man to criticise his decision making and match sharpness.

PSG were unfortunate to have drawn Liverpool, whereas other clubs such as Barcelona played an inferior PSV Eindhoven squad. "To come off the bench after his injury at the weekend is incredible really", said Klopp of Firmino, who was poked in the eye by Jan Vertonghen in the weekend win at Spurs.

"I think if you compare them playing in the same league that's slightly easier".

"But it was nice to see how Daniel performed tonight and he paid 100% back so that's so cool for him, for us, such an important sign".

The triumph extended Liverpool's flawless start to the 2018-19 season, but Gomez warned against complacency.

"I love him, to be honest". I know we are quite good, and -respecting them without getting afraid of them - but respecting them we have to.

James Milner stepped up to the spot and perfectly buried the penalty to give Liverpool the 2-0 lead.

"As the teams returned for the second half, Klopp was in Sturridge's ear again - clearly encouraging him to keep asking questions of the PSG defenders".

Messi has made clear his determination to go all the way in Europe this season and the Argentine duly scored the first goal of the 2018-19 group stage from a superb first-half free-kick.

"We conceded two goals in the first half but never at any point did we lose our confidence".

"I don't think this is a marker, it is just a start to the campaign".
