The Egyptian, who is set to face Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League group stages on Tuesday, would always pick Liverpool around the time the team won the Champions League.

Liverpool made it five wins out of five in the Premier League this season after a thoroughly convincing win over Tottenham at Wembley.

Another decision Klopp will have to make is whether to recall Jordan Henderson to central midfield or stick with Naby Keita and Georgino Wijnaldum, who featured in Saturday's win at Tottenham.

And with a report from L'Equipe indicating that Klopp had charmed Mbappe in a bid to sign the talented teenager, the game might take an added narrative where some supporters will wonder: "what if..." But we've just got to keep doing what we're doing, winning games that are put in front of us. And Neymar, we all know about his quality.

The Reds made the final of Europe's elite competition last season only to lose to Real Madrid but, with vast improvements made to the squad over the summer, many are tipping them to go one step further this season. At the same time we lost Emre (Can) - a fantastic player - and lost Chambo (Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain) through injury, and Ads (Adam Lallana) is also out, but back soon. "We could have scored more and we controlled the game".

"We played against teams challenging for the title and we still managed to reach the final, so of course we can do it again".

"We deserved to win that game today".

"We all hope there will be a chance tomorrow". We all saw the picture and we were massively anxious.

"[It is] painful. Nobody wants to have that". We don't try to act on these type of things.

'When a striker does not fill the net and does not score goals, always you need to find some reason why but I think he is fit, ' he said.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has said that Fabinho will take time to adjust to the pace of the Premier League, however, playing him in Europe against familiar French opposition could be the ideal method of integration.

Klopp said that forwards Dominic Solanke and Divock Origi were both ruled out for the visit of PSG due to injuries picked up on Sunday playing for the club's Under-23 team.

"There's no problem with the first line-up, only with having options".
