Jurgen Klopp has not ruled Roberto Firmino out of Liverpool's mouth-watering Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain tomorrow night at Anfield, but the Brazilian striker is a doubt for the European heavyweight duel on Merseyside after he picked up an eye injury in the Reds' 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League at the weekend.

And he shone during the recent global break, scoring for Switzerland in their 6-0 drubbing of Iceland before playing the bulk of England's 1-0 win over them at the King Power Stadium last Tuesday.

"Last season we knocked out Manchester City, then Roma, who had just beaten Barca in the quarter-finals".

The Reds have made a promising start to the Premier League season following five successive victories to keep pace with Chelsea FC.

PSG at Anfield is followed by another home game, against Southampton, and then things step up again.

"But I also played with Liverpool before 2005 on my console".

Former Bayern Munich star Juan Bernat will face a tough task marking last season's PFA and FWA Player of the Year Mohamed Salah.

All are in an effort to help House Republicans defend President Trump, and help them work to discredit the Mueller investigation. A US official says the declassification process ordered by the president will be a "complicated" matter.

Liverpool's form in Europe last-season was an unprecedented triumph whilst big-spenders PSG will undoubtedly be hoping their will be more to come this campaign.

This one is not to be missed, so here is everything you need to know as Jurgen Klopp takes on Thomas Tuchel...

A role he should have no worries about undertaking, Salah could switch from the flank and it could see Xherdan Shaqiri handed his first start of the season, as he can join Sadio Mane on the wings with that duo providing Salah with the service, and Mane and Salah can interchange with each other to upset the PSG defensive line. "How can we be the favourite in that game?"

"They are good, really good, not only for Paris, but Kylian Mbappe, come on, what a World Cup he played".

Harry Kane's worn out displays so far this season and the distraction of Hugo Lloris's drink-driving arrest have added to the feeling that Pochettino faces the acid test of his managerial skills this season.

Far from a nightmare, this is surely the kind of run that fans and players of top clubs relish and if this Liverpool side are going to prove they're the real deal, now is the time to do it.

In what looks to be a hugely contested group this season, Klopp's side must ensure they get off to a good start if they are to avoid falling behind the pack early.
