Thomas Meunier reveals what PSG need to copy from Liverpool team

Daniel Sturridge Liverpool 2018-19 Choupo-Moting And Shaqiri Were Relegated With Stoke, Played In The UCL

And Neymar regularly failed to track runs from Trent Alexander-Arnold, with one such foray from the Liverpool right-back contributing to Daniel Sturridge's headed opener.

After being sent on loan to West Bromwich Albion last season, the injury-prone England forward's Liverpool career looked over. But Firmino didn't have any issues with his vision when he steered a superb finish past PSG goalkeeper Alphonse Areola to send Anfield in ecstasy. He was in the best shape physically since I've known him.

Sturridge was taken off to make way for Firmino, who was initially left on the bench by Klopp after suffering a nasty eye injury in a clash with Tottenham's Jan Vertonghen at Wembley on Saturday.

"We conceded two goals in the first half but never at any point did we lose our confidence".

Milner added: "It is the flawless start for us".

The midfield trio of Milner, Wijnaldum and Henderson suffocated PSG's creative players like Angel Di Maria and Neymar, using their energy and intensity to perfection all across the pitch in order to secure the win.

Speaking to RMC, Meunier said: "We should follow Liverpool's example: they play simply, quickly, with lots of intensity and overlaps".

Yes, he is not the most gifted or glamorous midfielder in world football.

Star man Neymar was largely transparent in the final third and cut a frustrated figure for most of the match, with his downtrodden body language aligning itself with his considerable lack of effort to defend when losing possession.

Coming off the bench, he fired Liverpool back in front in added time with a fine strike from inside the box.

After that, they'll face two games against Chelsea - one in the League Cup, the other in the league - before a Champions League trip to Napoli at the start of October.
