The best photos as Liverpool leave it late to beat PSG in the Champions League

18 September 2018

Roberto Firmino‘s last-gasp winner earned Liverpool a 3-2 victory over Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday, as they returned to Champions League action in style.


The Reds traded domestic football for their maiden European outing of the season, and what a night it proved to be at Anfield.

PSG arrived on Merseyside as one of the favourites to win the Champions League this season, but expectations were similarly great among the home supporters.

Goals from Thomas Meunier and Kylian Mbappe looked to have robbed the Reds of a deserved win, only for substitute Firmino to find the bottom corner in stoppage time.
