It was the 29-year-old's first start in the competition for Liverpool and his first start in the Champions League since he was part of Chelsea's title-winning team in 2012.

Liverpool have yet to scale the attacking peaks they hit during last season's run to the Champions League final.

Liverpool extended their ideal start to the season as goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino ensured the Premier League leaders punished woeful Tottenham with a 2-1 win on Saturday.

"I am long enough now in this business to know no one plays a flawless season - not even [Manchester] City a year ago played a ideal season", he said.

Blessed with lightning quick reflexes and the passing skills of a playmaker the handsome Brazilian boasted three clean sheets after as many Premier League games.

Following the conclusion of the game, Liverpool boss Klopp said Firmino could be a doubt for the Reds' Champions League group stage opener against PSG at Anfield.

Five successive victories including their most recent 4-0 victory over Saint Etienne ensured that Tuchel has made the ideal start to life at the Parc des Princes.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has said that Fabinho will take time to adjust to the pace of the Premier League, however, playing him in Europe against familiar French opposition could be the ideal method of integration.

"They see the games we played".

"The day before yesterday there was no chance (he could play) and yesterday it didn't look well", Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said, adding that Firmino only told him on Tuesday morning that "I can open the eye again". I know we are quite good, and -respecting them without getting afraid of them - but respecting them we have to.

After their victory against Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool now have 15 points from 5 games and sit comfortably on the top of the table.

Both teams eventually fell to winners Real Madrid but will be hoping to go all the way this term. "We didn't learn a lot that we didn't already know before but it's nice to know we can do it again".

"I think we should be talking in a different way now - if it was given it's 2-2 - if we score the goal".

Roberto Firmino had an eye for goal just when Liverpool needed a victor against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
