Klopp: Beating Paris Saint Germain proved Liverpool can reach next level

Andy Robertson and Kylian Mbappe

Liverpool added to their lead when former Bayern full-back Juan Bernat, tripped Wijnaldum in the box. It will be interesting, however, to see how they cope against arguably the most potent attacking trio in world football in Neymar, Edison Cavani and Kylian Mbappé.

At Barcelona, Neymar knew that he was playing for a team that had the strength in every department to go all the way in the Champions League, as they did in 2015.

New £43.7m signing Fabinho has not yet played for Liverpool.

Jürgen Klopp thinks that Liverpool stepped up to the next level, by proving there is "no mountain they can not climb", after a breathless return to the Champions League brought a dramatic stoppage-time victory over Paris Saint-Germain. The excellent form of the Liverpool midfield, especially James Milner, has kept the Brazilian out of the side.

"Gary should come over and tell me exactly how that would work". The dream turned into a nightmare though as Salah was brought down and injured by Sergio Ramos in the first half of that match against Los Blancos and since then, things have gone from bad to worse. "That would be amusing!" "That is good that it is not like that now and that is because of a year ago".

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was doubtful Firmino would be ready ahead of that game, but Mane had other ideas and proceeded to pester his team-mate. Van Dijk conducted the back-line as he usually does and was able to provide the team with the necessary aerial threat (as it was PSG's weakness).

"We changed the system because we expected a change from them".

It made for painful viewing for PSG coach Thomas Tuchel, who had seen similar scenes before.

Klopp was also pleased for Firmino, who had initially looked like he would miss out due to an eye injury suffered in the win over Spurs at the weekend.

Firmino strikes a late goal.

If he fails to prove his fitness.

Liverpool FC are aiming to challenge for the title this season after they finished in fourth place and without a trophy last term.
