The move paid off for Klopp, with Sturridge heading in the opener before Firmino contributed with the victor from the bench - a positive indication of their squad depth, according to Liam Rosenior.

Liverpool's English striker Daniel Sturridge celebrates with teammates after scoring the team's first goal during the UEFA Champions League group C football match between Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield in Liverpool, north west England on September 18, 2018. They also claim that Mohamed Salah, who scored 44 goals last season, is desperate to leave Liverpool.

"You can see that in the performances, they are winning games".

The Dutchman added: 'If you are a coach then you would be going insane. "He's been pushing that for a long time and everybody's in to do it".

"We controlled the second half up until it's a sloppy pass in midfield and they broke on".

With Liverpool's attack not quite hitting top gear so far this season, odds of 10/11 (1.91) seem generous on the guests restricting them to under 2.5 goals for their fifth consecutive league match.

"He has surpassed my feelings in terms of his ability and he is a better player than I had given him credit for, so we have been really pleased and that is with the caveat that he is not as fit as he can be". To give some background, we lifted the Champions League trophy five times, a number that stands up there with some of Europe's best.

"It's going to be a big test for us, we understand that but we are on a decent run".

Joe Gomez went close with a stooping header that only just cleared the crossbar from a corner on the quarter-hour mark, although PSG started to create chances of their own soon afterwards as Neymar went past Trent Alexander-Arnold and forced Alisson to parry his shot, with Edinson Cavani scuffing the rebound to the Brazilian keeper on 17 minutes.

"Bobby's done a great finish so fair play to him and like I said, all the lads have done brilliant today so it was a real team effort".

"But it was nice to see how Daniel performed tonight and he paid 100 per cent back". Even though we played well against both Tottenham and PSG, the squad will need to be tough and rested for the future games.
