The Reds were given a huge early test of their Champions League credentials, with PSG heading to Anfield as one of the tournament favourites.
There was only one team who looked like potential champions next May, however, as Jurgen Klopp‘s side comfortably outplayed their opponents.
Daniel Sturridge and James Milner got the ball rolling with goals before half-time, and although Thomas Meunier and Kylian Mbappe made it 2-2, there was just about time for Roberto Firmino to net a stoppage-time winner.
It means Liverpool go top of Group C immediately, with Napoli only able to draw 0-0 away to Red Star Belgrade.
“We got off to a good start; we made it a bit hard for ourselves but there’s nothing better than a late goal—Bobby has come off the bench and done that. To a man, we were brilliant I thought.
“I felt we controlled it. Obviously we lost the goal just before half-time and 2-1 is a bit uncomfortable.
“Then I thought we controlled the second half until they broke on us. We know the players they’ve got and it’s probably the only time they’ve really opened us up.
“At that point you thought it would be a draw but the lads stuck at it.
“We just kept on going and found a second wind going into the last 10 minutes, the chances kept on coming and Bobby’s finish was great.
“Fair play to him and all the lads have done brilliantly. It was a real team effort.”
“We played very well during the 90 minutes.
“We knew PSG had their qualities; it was top level.
“You can’t make little mistakes because PSG are a top team and they will take every mistake. They scored like this for 2-2.
“But we tried until the end and we deserved in the end to win because if we’d drawn this game we’d feel very sad.
“We deserved to win for the amazing performance we played.”
A number of Liverpool squad members took to social media to post their thoughts after the match, with James Milner still full of adrenaline on Wednesday morning:
