Neymar inspires PSG to vital UCL win over Liverpool

Share

The PSG star, fresh from scoring the victor in the 2-1 Champions League win over Liverpool, claims of "playacting", and whooping up the Parc des Princes crowd while missing a pass directed at him, is centre of attention once again.

Klopp was incensed by the "behaviour" of Les Parisiens and their on-field antics as they rode out 2-1 winners throughout Liverpool's loss which now leaves them in the precarious position of having to beat Napoli by a 1-0 scoreline or at least two goals at Anfield.

Marco Verratti was lucky to escape a red card for a shocking challenge on Joe Gomez.

The change in style has not impressed some supporters but you only have to look at the Premier League table to see there is lots to be positive about, despite this lack of fluidity that I have been talking about.

"I did not feel it was such a big issue". It wasn't something we quite dealt with tonight.

Klopp singled out Neymar as the biggest culprit as Liverpool received six bookings in a 2-1 defeat, suggesting Polish referee Szymon Marciniak should have taken sterner action. "For me it's a red card yes".

"I expect Liverpool to win the game, but I don't know whether or not they can win by two goals, that's what makes it more hard", he added, before referencing Liverpool's last European Cup win 11 years ago.

PSG had only won one of their previous seven games in the competition.

Speaking in the Parc des Princes mixed zone after the final whistle, Neymar said that he was not at optimum level fitness-wise.

The world's most expensive player had been drawing fouls from opponents and whipping up a fervent home crowd before he burst down the left in the 37th minute, combining with Mbappe.

Edinson Cavani's close-range shot from the resulting cross was blocked by Alisson but Neymar converted the rebound.

Not for the first time, Neymar was rolling around on the pitch, to the clear annoyance of the visitors. "Watford was a tough game on Saturday and now we look forward to the Merseyside derby on Sunday. He kept on shouting at them to stay focussed and run back", Henry told a post-match news conference.

"We were not anxious about playing at home".

Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Gini Wijnaldum bring the same exceptional dimensions to their game, albeit in varied roles.

Starting XI: Buffon (6); Kehrer (7), Thiago Silva (8*), Kimpembe (5), Bernat (6); Di Maria (5), Verratti (8), Marquinhos (7), Neymar (8); Cavani (6), Mbappe (7).
