Messi hat-trick, Reds, Inter late wins mark start of Champions League

Jurgen Klopp's team have some big games coming up in a busy period

While Liverpool found a late victor, questions have already been asked about the play of PSG star Neymar.

The goal proved to be his first ever in the competition for Liverpool and with the fixtures coming thick and fast from now until the end of the month, Jurgen Klopp is expected to utilise his services more frequently.

Over the years we have become accustomed to Brazilian superstar Neymar making defenders look silly as he leaves them for dead with outrageous skills moves.

'The recovery was also good for the next game. What the boys make of the match plan is extraordinarily outstanding to be honest, one of them a yard less tonight and game over.

Barca ran away with the game in the second half, with Ousmane Dembele scoring a stunner before Messi added two more to complete his eighth Champions League hat-trick, one more than Cristiano Ronaldo, and seal a 4-0 win.

Liverpool made it six wins from six this season thanks to their dramatic 3-2 win against the French champions.

Firmino sustained an abrasion to the cornea in his left eye in the weekend win at Tottenham after a clash with Jan Vertonghen and did not train on Sunday or Monday.

The 2017 Champions League Runners-up took the lead when Daniel Sturridge scored with a thumping header in the 30th minute.

Back in Champions League action for the first time since last season's agonising final defeat against Real Madrid, Liverpool erased the bitter taste of that loss with a thrilling success against the star-studded French champions.

Liverpool icon John Barnes believes the lack of defensive from Neymar and Mbappe cost PSG the game.

Firmino did not train on Monday, but, made himself available and came off the bench to score the added-time victor in the thrilling 3-2 victory over PSG at Anfield.

But former Manchester United legends Rio Ferdinand and Michael Owen played down any chances of ill-feeling between Salah and his team-mate.
