Liverpool vs PSG tactical preview: How Europe's most prolific strike trios compare

18 September, 2018, 16:06 | Author: Heidi Alvarez
  • Jurgen Klopp applauds Liverpool's supporters after the win at Wembley

Tuesday's referee, Cuneyt Cakir, coincidentally was also in charge on that occasion.

Firmino has two goals and two assists this season and scored 10 in 13 in the Champions League last season as Liverpool reached the final, losing to Real Madrid. And manager Jurgen Klopp will be hoping that his wards are able to translate that form into Europe's premier footballing competition, when Les Parisiens come visiting to Anfield.

In his place, Klopp has options: A rare start for Daniel Sturridge is one possibility, but it could also be that Xherdan Shaqiri is given the nod.

Regardless of what happens this evening, there is no denying that the game at Anfield will be a cracker and has the makings of an all-time great group stage game in the Champions League.

"People in football saw that". "It's still early. Five games, fantastic we've won all of them, we have improved". There was a lot of respect.

Sadio Mane will play from the left, but Mohamed Salah could be shifted into a central role to allow Shaqiri to feature on the right. We want to win the ball.

"If the game was today no chance".

"There is nothing in us that thinks that's it". We don't try to act on these type of things.

Jordan Henderson, set to return to the side having started Saturday's victory against Tottenham on the bench, insists last season's final will serve only as motivation.

"It's a good draw with some good teams. It was a brilliant experience that ended in disappointment but you can use that to learn as a team".

Talk of a genuine title challenge intensified after four wins from four to start the season.

The Reds are coming off an impressive win at Tottenham on Saturday, whilst PSG had the luxury of being without Neymar and Kylian Mbappe but still managing to thrash Saint-Etienne 4-0 in Ligue 1 on Friday.

"Last season we knocked out Manchester City, then Roma, who had just beaten Barca in the quarterfinals". Do all the good things again and again and again.

"Do I have to compare them?"

However, the Liverpool manager said that the Brazilian winger won't find himself on the receiving end of a hard time from his players. Us playing against them will look different to what they have faced so far this season - that's the truth.

"Will it be enough?" I don't know if it's possible to avoid his quality. That's why Champions League football is so cool. Both teams are so strong, but the feeling is that PSG is more talented and a bit better. "For a game like this you have to think about everything".
