Liverpool left it late to beat Paris Saint-Germain 3-2 on Tuesday night, getting their Champions League campaign off to a memorable start.

Liverpool 3-2 PSG

Champions League Group Stage (1), Anfield
September 18, 2018

Goals: Sturridge 30′, Milner (pen) 46′, Firmino 90+2′; Meunier 40′, Mbappe 83′


Jurgen Klopp‘s side hosted a daunting PSG outfit, but the Ligue 1 champions were comprehensively outplayed all evening.

Daniel Sturridge, brought in for the injured Roberto Firmino, headed home to give the Reds the lead, in his first Champions League start for six years.

James Milner made it 2-0 with a typically clinical penalty, but Thomas Meunier’s well-taken effort quickly reduced the deficit.

Kylian Mbappe looked to have undeservedly earned his side a point, following an error by Mohamed Salah, but substitute Firmino fired home in stoppage time as scenes of joy erupted inside Anfield.

Meanwhile, Napoli could only manage a goalless draw away to Red Star Belgrade, making it a perfect start in Group C for Klopp’s men.

Here’s how supporters saw Liverpool’s 3-2 victory on social media and our forums.

“It was really impressive and good to see us just go for it after conceding, no feeling sorry for ourselves, just crank it up and go for it, it bodes well for the season ahead.”

Red Ted on the forums.

 

Certain individuals were singled out for special praise, especially Milner & Wijnaldum…

“Jimmy Milner and Gini were immense.”

“A contest between Gini and Milner for MoM. Hendo was great too. No stuttering from them this time, they were perfect all three of them!”

Hope in your heart on the forums.

 

The only real negative was Salah’s below-par showing, but some were still quick to defend him…

“Mo not at his best but you can see it won’t be long before he starts to hit his stride. Great win.”
