Liverpool enjoying best start in 57 years after PSG win

Jurgen Klopp says there is no mountain Liverpool can not scale after their dramatic win over Paris Saint-Germain in their Champions League opener.

Liverpool's opening salvo was reminiscent of the manner in which Manchester City and Roma were blown away at Anfield in the quarter-final and semi-final last season, relentless pressure finally telling with the reward coming in goals from Daniel Sturridge and James Milner's penalty.

Kylian Mbappe made the Reds pay for their wasteful in the second half with a late equaliser, but Roberto Firmino stepped off the bench to score a last-gasp victor.

But Roberto Firmino, a second-half substitute, had some plans of his own as the Brazilian latched home a stoppage-time victor to guide Liverpool to a famous victory.

On Sturridge and Firmino's impact...

"Great performance of Daniel", added the Reds boss.

"One, two, three years ago the people would have thought that's a mountain we can not climb".

Liverpool's setup will see Any Robertson pushing ahead and even though the Scot is pretty disciplined defensively, Virgil van Dijk will have to cover for him when Mbappe gets the ball. A super game, a super goal. You bring your kids in the Champions League? I would say that one, two, three years ago probably everyone would have thought that is a mountain we can not climb.

On whether he was surprised by PSG's approach.

No, I expected the biggest problems you can have to be honest! No, I was not surprised.

"We scored wonderful goals, they were thunderballs".

On why Firmino began the game on the bench... That said, we were not 100 percent focused.

Whether you've watched him regularly over the last few years or just seen some of those YouTube compilations set to very bad dance music, you'll nearly certainly be aware of Neymar's reputation for making opponents look a bit silly with his exceptional skill and trickery. But it's still so unbelievably hard. What the boys make of the match plan is extraordinary, it's outstanding.

One of them a yard less tonight, and game over.

New £43.7m signing Fabinho has not yet played for Liverpool. We look now much more tuned than it maybe was in the past.

"We did not start very well", the Germany global admitted.

"And Neymar we all know about his quality". The Brazilian had to be taken off after that incident against Tottenham.

I would like to have the answer for that but actually I have no clue.

PSG themselves have a fearsome front three with many seeing Mbappe as the next player to dominate the Ballon d'Or. "You can not play at 95 per cent, you have to reach 100 per cent or you have no chance", said Klopp.

"I think we got a lot of respect because of the way we played last season and I think everyone who saw the final saw that we could have won it against a side in a completely different moment". It was just really good defending, but you can not defend over 95 minutes, they will have the ball. So they closed the centre, the counter-attacks they had in the first half were when we passed the ball through. After that, we played with courage and mentality. That's the next step, that if something works we are now able to stick to it.

"Obviously we are disappointed", said the Frenchman.
