The daunting fixtures look set to pile up for Jurgen Klopp now as Liverpool will play Chelsea twice, Napoli and Manchester City in the next three weeks. I said before it was like a testimonial, the pace in which they played the game.

Liverpool were rewarded for their excellent start as they found themselves two goals up after 36 minutes, Daniel Sturridge getting the opener before James Milner netted a penalty.

"I think this year we're confident as a team". We only had one session this morning with Bobby but it was time you have to show faith in your squad, it was nice to see Daniel tonight and he paid it back 100 percent.

The Reds ultimately won a see-saw contest 3-2 thanks to a stoppage time victor from Roberto Firmino, who replaced Sturridge after 72 minutes.

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

It's not an unreasonable prediction, as Liverpool made it to last season's Champions League final before ultimately losing 3-1 to Real Madrid in a controversial end to the campaign.

Mbappe looked to have snatched an unlikely point for the Parisiens with a sucker punch seven minutes from time, but Liverpool's belief and strength of character saw them find an extra gear when it mattered.

The Brazil forward was a late substitute having damaged an eye at Spurs on Saturday and struck a superb finish after Kylian Mbappé had equalised for Thomas Tuchel's team in the 83rd minute.

There is no doubting that Milner has been stupendous since switching Manchester for Merseyside back in 2015, but while Liverpool's rip-roaring attacking trio often grab the headlines, he consistently proves just why he is one of the club's most valuable assets. "But the manager is prepared for it and he knows his team more than most so he tries to help us cope with it".

"If you play against PSG you have to reach the next level".

"We started slowly, and we were inconsistent in the way we wanted to play", Arteta said.
