Liverpool 'made a point' with PSG victory - Gomez

Adjust Comment Print

A selection of fans tore in to Mohamed Salah following his disappointing performance during Liverpool's thrilling Champions League victory over Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night. We played a midfield that played a lot together a year ago.

But the two-goal advantage lasted only until the 40th minute when a botched clearance by Liverpool's Andrew Robertson led to an easy goal for PSG's Thomas Meunier.

But Roberto Firmino came off the bench to snatch the points with a dramatic stoppage-time victor just days after suffering a nasty eye injury against Tottenham. Firmino had been on the pitch 11 minutes by the time Kylian Mbappe equalized for the French champions in the 83rd minute.

The Belgian scored a quality goal in the first half which meant that Liverpool went into the break with the Paris-based club breathing down their necks. "We were so strong and good with the ball", a relieved Klopp said.

Milner, who was Liverpool's tireless engine in midfield, then stepped up to the penalty spot when Georginio Wijnaldum was tripped by Juan Bern, doubling the lead in the 36th minute. 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.

It's a slow-moving storm, creeping westward at just 2 miles per hour on Saturday - not even as fast as the average person walks. It came after a mother and her eight-month-old child were killed when a massive tree crushed their brick house in Wilmington.

It was nearly 2-0 a minute later, PSG scrambling the ball away after excellent work from Mohamed Salah had created havoc, but Mbappe then missed a chance to level when he lifted over from inside the box.

Neither side was very effective in the early stages of the second half and the first noteworthy sequence came only in the 57th minute, when Liverpool's Mo Salah saw a goal disallowed after the referee ruled that he had fouled PSG keeper Alphonse Areola.

"This team is built for winning the Champions League".

Firmino had recovered enough to come of the bench and grab the added-time victor but Klopp was pleased with both forwards, especially as the Brazilian looked set to miss out completely.

Over the years we have become accustomed to Brazilian superstar Neymar making defenders look silly as he leaves them for dead with outrageous skills moves.
