Paris St Germain's Kylian Mbappe was kept in check by Liverpool's Andrew Robertson for the majority of their Champions League defeat at Anfield (Martin Rickett/PA).

Roberto Firmino's had an eventful week for minutes after scoring against Tottenham Hotspur, he was forced off with a freak eye injury and the Liverpool striker came off the bench to score an injury-time victor against Paris Saint-Germain.

"I love him", Klopp said. I texted him saying: "'You don't need your eye!'"

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp reserves special praise for strikers Daniel Sturridge and Roberto Firmino following their goalscoring displays in the 3-2 win over PSG.

As for Paris Saint Germain, they will now look to get back to winning ways against Stade Rennes on Sunday.

Last season's beaten finalists had squandered a two-goal lead given to them by Daniel Sturridge, on his first start for the Reds in the competition, and James Milner's penalty inside 36 minutes.

"They changed a bit of the system, we expected it and didn't think too much about it", the German tactician told BT Sport. There was no chance yesterday, absolutely no chance today before [training] and then this morning he came in said, "I am fine, I can open the eye again" so it's good, it helps.

Pedro injury 'probably' not serious - Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri
According The Metro , Sarri insisted post-match that it's "probably not a serious injury". I hope for him in the future I can help him.

The Parisians got themselves back into the game though five minutes before the break when Robertson failed to clear and Thomas Meunier drove home a first-time effort.

"One, two or three years ago maybe people thought it's a mountain we can not climb".

"The team showed great quality on the pitch, we conceded twice but it was a great victory in the end".

The Englishman was handed an unusual start due to the injury Firmino picked up against Spurs on Saturday and Klopp admitted that Sturridge is physically in the best shape he has ever been during his time at the club. But we see ourselves at that level.

"We expect a lot from our front three, and today was tough for them". With Bobby [Firmino] obviously struggling, Studge [Sturridge] comes in and scores for us.

Sturridge was not the only Liverpool player to impress me, but Klopp had more than just individual performances to be pleased about.
