Champions League: What Mane said about Firmino after Liverpool defeated PSG

Champions League: What Mane said about Firmino after Liverpool defeated PSG”

Firmino, who scored a stoppage-time victor in Tuesday's 3-2 Champions League victory, suffered an abrasion to the cornea in his left eye after a clash with Jan Vertonghen during Saturday's win over Tottenham.

As a super sub, Roberto Firmino came on to score in the 91st minute of play which sealed the victory for the men in red.

Liverpool FC blew a 2-0 lead before coming back to win 3-2 against a Paris Saint-Germain side that appeared at times to be overwhelmed by the setting and the occasion in the 2018-2019 Champions League opener. In the 40th minute of the first half, Paris answered back with Thomas Meunier cleaning up after a offside Edinson Cavani.

Then Mbappe stunned the raucous Anfield crowd with a clinical finish only to see Firmino grab the glory.

The 26-year-old thereby moved level with Dirk Kuyt and Terry McDermott, with only Ian Rush (14) and Steven Gerrard (30) ahead of him in the Reds' all-time standings.

Klopp put Firmino on the bench but brought him on with about 20 minutes to go and he scored the added-time victor to extend Liverpool's 100% record to six matches. Yes, when you have Bobby Firmino available, you actually always think, "Come on, bring him". "I am sure they are going to win a trophy this year", he said of Liverpool, as quoted by the Daily Mail. "We played very well during the 90 minutes". That being said, there wasn't really anything he could've done to stop the two goals that scored and didn't make any glaring mistakes in the match.

"They changed a bit of the system, we expected it and didn't think too much about it", the German tactician told BT Sport.

They started their campaign by beating Monaco 2-1 away in Group A, Diego Costa and Jose Maria Gimenez getting their goals after Samuel Grandsir put the hosts in front.

We need to pay attention at all times and football punished us here. "We picked ourselves up and played a better second half but it was frustrating".
