PSG manager claims Liverpool result was 'not logical or correct'

Five goals, tons of dramatic moments and a late victor, this one had it all.

Jurgen Klopp was thrilled with the performance his Liverpool side got from surprise starter Daniel Sturridge in the club's 3-2 win over PSG on Tuesday.

Joe Gomez has also been awarded a five, which makes for odd reading considering PSG's centre-backs, Thiago Silva and Presnel Kimpembe, both got sixes.

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.

Roberto Firmino's injury-time victor inflicted a first defeat of the season on the French champions while maintaining Liverpool's 100% start. Yes, when you have Bobby Firmino available, you actually always think, "Come on, bring him".

Mane, however, said that he told Firmino that he didn't "need his eye to play" against PSG.

"It is what we tried and finally we scored the third goal, which was very important for the team". "One of them a yard less tonight and it's game over".

The Spanish champions next go to London to face Tottenham Hotspur, who suffered a wounding 2-1 defeat at Inter Milan.

PSG had battled back from two goals down at Anfield and appeared on course to secure a draw in their opening game in Group C.

Mikel Arteta might have enjoyed the opportunity to sit in the hot seat for Manchester City when the Premier League champions opened their UEFA Champions League season at home to Lyon on Wednesday, but he sure didn't like the result.

The return to Champions League action October 3 against Napoli and follow that match with a league showdown against Pep Guardiola and Manchester City. "I won't judge them because we lost". "I loved his goal celebration", Klopp grinned.

"We deserved to win for the fantastic performance we played".

That was after Alex Telles had an early penalty saved for the visitors.
