‘PSG made us look like butchers’ - Klopp sees red over Neymar antics

MF Marco Verratti, 7 - Summed himself up in a nutshell with moments of technical brilliance but was also fortunate to only pick up a first half booking after a wild challenge in a moment of madness.

Referee Szymon Marciniak had a challenging match, appearing to change his mind after gesturing for a corner when Sadio Mane was challenged by Angel Di Maria before then pointing to the penalty spot.

He added: "As good as Liverpool's midfield three are at protecting their back four and making it hard for the opposition, they do not get forward much".

The Reds have enjoyed an unbeaten start to their 2018-19 Premier League campaign, with 13 games safely negotiated so far.

"We need Anfield again and a pretty special atmosphere, but Napoli is a really strong side". With Neymar, we're talking about one of the best players in the world but watching him tonight was embarrassing. We were not that calm anymore, it makes you aggressive, but unfortunately a kind of negative aggressive, which doesn't help in football.

Liverpool's hopes of Champions League progression are going down to the final group game.

There was a lack of urgency all over the field from Jurgen Klopp's side, compared to their French counterparts, with their defending leaving a lot to be desired, while their was no fluidity or genuine threat in the attacking third, as the PSG goal was rarely troubled over the course of the game.

This comes two days after NY announced it had designated Torreyes for assignment, which freed up a 40-man roster spot. NY claimed pitcher Parker Bridwell off waivers from the Angels, which filled Torreyes' roster spot.

"I saw the penalty". I have no clue why that happened. The home midfielder Marco Verratti was one of those booked for a awful foul on Joe Gomez that could easily have resulted in a dismissal. It's hard, we lost the game, we were not outstandingly good. "We won an intense and important game". "Even Joe Gomez got a yellow card, the nicest boy on the planet, and he was close to a red". Five, six, seven or so?

'You make it hard for yourself if you're 2-0 down, especially after 30 minutes or so.

"These things, it's hard but it's our job to take it. I am sure we will have another special night", Robertson said of the December 11 meeting with Napoli.

Klopp criticised the referee post-match and the antics of the PSG players have been criticised by many more who watched on last night.

"We responded to Liverpool's physical challenges and matched their intensity", said the France global.

PSG knew a defeat here coupled with an unfavourable result in the night's other Group C game could see the ambitious Qatar-owned club eliminated already, which would amount to little short of a catastrophe for them. "We have to go to Belgrade, which is never easy, and produce a ideal display to go through".
