Liverpool hit 57-year high with dramatic slaying of PSG

Liverpool hit 57-year high with dramatic slaying of PSG

Liverpool have won their opening six matches of a season for the first time since 1961-62 as the Reds threaten to challenge on all fronts this term.

Liverpool look like a "different animal" this season, Neil Lennon told The Debate, after they recovered from letting a two-goal lead slip to beat PSG 3-2 in the Champions League. "If he stays fit, they've got another striker who two or three years ago we were talking about being absolutely world class, nearly winning the title".

"It is still so unbelievably hard". But, it's early days and it's only one game so we're not going to get too excited.

Liverpool have made a strong start in the English Premier League and in the UEFA Champions League.

Tottenham, whom Liverpool beat impressively 2-1 in London last week, had nine of their key personnel reach that stage of the World Cup, while Klopp has seen the likes of Andy Robertson, Virgil Van Dijk, James Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum make major contributions for his side having missed out on Russian Federation completely.

Firmino, who came off the bench to net the victor against PSG despite suffering with an eye injury sustained against Tottenham, is likely to be fit to start against Southampton.

It was the 29-year-old's first start in the competition for Liverpool and his first start in the Champions League since he was part of Chelsea's title-winning team in 2012.

"We put in a great performance in the first half". I think it is a moment where you have to show faith in the squad.

Up next, however, is a trip to Anfield to face Liverpool; a trip they will have to make without Ings.

Sturridge opened the scoring following an impressive half-hour for Liverpool, with Robertson's excellent cross finding the striker in the penalty area.

Firmino had recovered enough to come of the bench and grab the added-time victor but Klopp was pleased with both forwards, especially as the Brazilian looked set to miss out completely. "The day before yesterday it was no chance", he said. Now we'll see if Neymar remembers this jab when the two meet again at the end of November. "You can bring Bobby Firmino on and that helps a lot".
