Neymar, PSG antics leave Liverpool's Klopp frustrated

"And I know everyone is talking about Mohamed Salah being back in form, but I don't see it myself".

Liverpool will drop into the Europa League if they fail to beat Napoli but Milner expects to avoid that scenario. "It was clever from PSG, especially Neymar, but a lot of others went down like it was something serious and we were not that calm anymore".

Marco Verratti was running the game in midfield, although the Italian was fortunate not to be sent off for a unsafe tackle on Joe Gomez midway through the first half.

The former Reds defender told BBC Sport: "I just don't feel that the Liverpool's front three are clicking in the same way they have done in the past". At Red Star people said it was a poor result but I'd say it was more of a poor performance than a poor result, we didn't play well enough. "The quality they have meant it was obviously quite intense to deal with", admitted Klopp.

But with Liverpool needing to tighten up at the back after those two away defeats, Dejan Lovren alongside Van Dijk must have been a better option for the Liverpool coach because it ensured that he wasn't exposing two youngsters the devastating firepower of Neymar, Mbappe and Edinson Cavani.

Meanwhile, PSG head to Belgrade for their last game still needing to win to be certain of advancing, but at least they have their fate in their hands.

"I don't know if there's any explanation for that right now because I can't think of one, otherwise we should have used it already".

James Milner converted a penalty in first-half stoppage-time to lift the visitors, who were much improved after the interval but unable to produce the incisive moment they needed to level. Polish referee Szymon Marciniak did not initially give a penalty but then changed his mind, and Milner beat Gianluigi Buffon from 12 yards.

"Now we have to use Anfield one more time". Here (Paris) we didn't start well in the first 10 minutes but after that it was a pretty even game and we had chances to win it.

Liverpool can resurrect their Champions League ambitions with a big night at Anfield next month, insists Andy Robertson.

"Now let's think about the Serie A game at Atalanta on Monday, which will be more hard than Liverpool".

'Every time we made a foul they all came to the ref trying to get us a yellow card, ' said Van Dijk.
