Stunning late goal gives Liverpool dramatic Champions League victory over PSG

Liverpool midfielder James Milner was in awe of teammate Roberto Firmino after the Brazilian came off the bench to score the winning goal against PSG in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Sturridge was taken off to make way for Firmino, who was initially left on the bench by Klopp after suffering a nasty eye injury in a clash with Tottenham's Jan Vertonghen at Wembley on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp's side were upping the pace, and with eight minutes on the clock Milner's deflected shot fizzed behind before a Sadio Mane cross was too close to Areola.

'That's so cool for him, for us, such a big, important sign. As a result, Firmino is in a race against the clock to be fit for Tuesday's massive game against PSG.

The triumph extended Liverpool's ideal start to the 2018-19 season, but Gomez warned against complacency.

Klopp praised the contribution of Daniel Sturridge, who marked his first Champions League start for Liverpool with the opening goal, and admitted it was a close call on Firmino's involvement following the eye injury. "The squad is so strong as a unit", he said. I know we are quite good, and -respecting them without getting afraid of them - but respecting them we have to.

"Obviously it's big for us to compete against teams like that, but we see ourselves at that level".

"It shows we have so much quality".

They started their campaign by beating Monaco 2-1 away in Group A, Diego Costa and Jose Maria Gimenez getting their goals after Samuel Grandsir put the hosts in front.

'But it was nice to see how Daniel performed tonight and he paid 100 per cent back. No game is easy.
