James Milner up for Champions League award

James Milner up for Champions League award

"We changed the system because we expected a change from them". The Reds were the first to draw blood as Andrew Robertson sent in a flawless cross onto the head of Sturridge, who then put it past a dazed Alphonse Aereola.

Kylian Mbappe equalised for the visitors seven minutes from time and just when it looked like the tie was going to end in a 2-2 draw, Firmino popped up with a special strike to maintain Liverpool's ideal start to the season.

6 minutes later, James Milner doubled the lead for the Merseyside Reds from the spot.

"We were in trouble in the first half, but we showed character and scored".

I can't say enough good things about Bobby (Roberto Firmino).


Sportsmail columnist Martin Keown returned to answer more of your questions in this week's Tackle Keown, with PSG's disjointed display at Anfield top of the agenda.

Tuchel chose to go with a different formation and placed Rabiot and Marquinhos as the holding midfielders, which in my opinion was a bad move.

"The cool development of this club is that when you hear Liverpool are playing PSG you don't think we have no chance any more", the German manager told reporters. We know the players after the World Cup have struggled a bit. 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). That is the question Julen Lopetegui must ask himself as the new Real Madrid coach attempts to add a fourth Champions League in a row to the Bernabeu trophy cabinet.

It was revealed later that the clip was actually edited to crop Salah out of the picture, who on a second glance, threw his hands aloft and then slammed his water bottle in an act of relief and delight, as it was his mistake in midfield which led to Kylian Mbappe goal which brought the visitors level.

Liverpool's Champions League win over Paris Saint-Germain proved they are on a par with Europe's best, according to Joe Gomez.
