Potential Liverpool lineup against PSG: Sturridge set to replace Firmino

Georginio Wijnaldum responds after 'liking' controversial comment about Saido Mane Klopp talks down Reds' title hopes

Salah, the Premier League Golden Boot holder, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino earned a reputation as the deadliest frontline in all of Europe after combining to score 91 goals for Liverpool in all competitions last season.

Klopp was talking of the belief, the positivity and the reputation that last season's Champions League campaign helped Liverpool rediscover.

The Reds welcome last season's outright favourites to Anfield, with the hosts hoping to build on their European heroics that took them all the way to the final in Kiev last-time-out.

"But, on the other side, it's quite hard to make a preparation because they have never played against us". We are a challenger and we are a challenger again for pretty much everything, especially in each game. I'm pretty sure it's not.

Five consecutive wins at the start of the Premier League campaign have helped silence talk of a Champions League final hangover. I don't want us to put pressure on ourselves, but yes, everything is possible.

"So, performing week in and week out is a must, and getting those results that we need to show that we are one of the best teams in Europe".

Russia's defense ministry says it lost contact with plane in Syria
The "Il-20. disappeared during the attack of four Israeli F-16 aircraft on Syrian targets in the province of Latakia". Russia 's Defence Ministry says it lost contact with the IL-20 aircraft near its Hmeimim Airbase in Syria .

Their respective outputs has inevitably seen the two triads compared to each other but iconic former Reds defender Thompson says he would rather have Liverpool's attack than PSG's because of what Firmino brings to the team and their collaborative work ethic.

"I think the English sides will do well, they've got a lot better after a bad spell", Lineker told BT Sport. "I'm looking forward to a very enjoyable and intense encounter". We had to do it the hard way with our games in the Premier League, because Chelsea were chasing us like insane.

The big games keep coming with a trip to Napoli four days later before Manchester City arrive on Merseyside on October 7 for the final game of a blockbuster run prior to the next worldwide break. "In all the games, we have had some really good moments, but today we had 85 brilliant minutes".

"We're friends, we talk a lot to each other", Salah said of his forward partners.

And the two units have proven just as key this season, Liverpool's forwards have supplied eight of their 11 Premier League goals while PSG's collective are on a combined 11 strikes.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have confirmed the appointment of Jack Robinson as first-team assistant goalkeeping coach.
