Liverpool Beat Paris Saint-Germain 3-2 In Champions League Thriller

Liverpool defeated Paris Saint-Germain in a thrilling UEFA Champions League clash on Tuesday night, and manager Jurgen Klopp has explained how the Reds targeted "world-class" Neymar.

The Parisians got themselves back into the game though five minutes before the break when Robertson failed to clear and Thomas Meunier drove home a first-time effort.

The biggest match of the day lived up to its billing as the match guaranteed goals and was finally settled in stoppage time.

However, a sloppy misplaced pass from Mohamed Salah (who had flitted in and out of the game until that point) eventually allowed Mbappe in to scrabble a largely unwarranted equaliser in the 83rd minute - a goal which instantly brought a deathly, deflated chill to Anfield.

"The problem for Liverpool is the fans don't get up for the league games in the same way as they do in the Champions League", Barton, now in charge of League One side Fleetwood, told talkSPORT.

"Bobby tested a little bit and then he went in and you think it's the moment when you have to show faith in the squad".

He proved himself to still be the club's best finisher when he pounced on his first chance to power a close-range header past Alphonse Areola from Robertson's cross.

"Some people won't play as much as they want, especially when it has been Saturday to Saturday and the gaffer has kind of stuck with his team".

The Ligue 1 side were curiously inert for large swathes of the second half, with Liverpool's energetic defence doing a fine job of keeping Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe on the back foot.

Liverpool's breakthrough came just when it seemed the visitors had gained a foothold in the game.

Speaking before the two side's locked horns, he said: "PSG are one of the favourites for the competition".

"It is a completely normal situation for an offensive player that they have times when they don't score".

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.
