The French press dig out Neymar as PSG suffer in Liverpool

The French press dig out Neymar as PSG suffer in Liverpool

On Monday, news from Dominic King broke that Jordan Henderson would be restored to the starting lineup to face Paris Saint-Germain this evening and as expected, the backlash from "fans" on Twitter was, in my opinion, pathetic.

Anfield rocked to the sound of familiar Champions League celebrations, another illustrious opponent beaten, another reminder that this Liverpool side contains an ever-present threat, even when it may seem the danger has been dampened.

The Reds got their reward on the half-hour mark when Sturridge found space between the two opposition defenders to head past Areola from Andrew Robertson's inch-perfect cross on the left.

Liverpool added to their lead when former Bayern full-back Juan Bernat, tripped Wijnaldum in the box.

The Reds were better for much of the 90 minutes, bossing around a makeshift PSG midfield of Marquinhos, Angel Di Maria and Adrien Rabiot.

However, Thomas Meunier reduced the deficit five minutes before the break and despite the hosts controlling the majority of the second period, the French champions drew level through Kylian Mbappe late on.

Keller, who was a political activist and the first deaf and blind person to earn a bachelor of arts degree, scored a seven. Clinton, along with other figures, was labeled "not necessary" with a score of five points out of 20.

It wasn't Salah's night but there will be times this season when he scores the victor for Liverpool.

"Mo salah reaction was nothing but anger of a bad game he played he celebrated first", said @Amroon.

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.

"Neymar on the left was not a bad idea and makes defending more hard, we needed more focus and we felt we did really well". Cavani sat up top, and often looked lonely as there wasn't sufficient support from the midfielders. No looking back to falling short last season but looking forward to the challenge of making the final step. Full-backs Robertson and Alexander Arnold, provided lovely crosses into the penalty area with flawless vision. "He did what the coach asked", he told reporters.

The biggest match of the day lived up to its billing as the match guaranteed goals and was finally settled in stoppage time. Call it luck, call it taking your chances, Tuchel calls it Anfield.

The players celebrated after the final whistle, on a ideal evening all-round, considering Napoli and Red Star Belgrade drew 0-0 in the other Group C fixture.
