Liverpool vs PSG: Team news, injuries, possible lineups

After all, there are another eight months that could redefine the year, for better or worse.

Jürgen Klopp believes the challenges Liverpool overcame to beat Tottenham Hotspur represent "perfect preparation" for Tuesday's Champions League opener versus Paris Saint-Germain.

PSG at Anfield is followed by another home game, against Southampton, and then things step up again. They saw Manchester City, they saw Rome, they saw Porto.

"But the Champions League is there to face teams like that". It was the turning point of the season.

Moreover, it was following the September worldwide break last season that any hopes Liverpool had of competing for the title faded. PSG have some very good individuals and a great team.

Centre-forward and goalscorer Roberto Firmino was absent from training after an eye injury, however, and must be considered unlikely to play on Tuesday. So far this season, they've yet to really click into gear.

"I love my players, all of them, I wouldn't change them but I watched Paris, I watched them last year and I watched them this year, and it is impressive", said Klopp.

Virgil van Dijk has been credited for much of the improvement, while, despite his blunder at Leicester, Alisson has been an eminently confident and reassuring presence between the sticks since arriving from Roma. Not only the memories of past year, in general most memories are nice.

The fact is, each of the next six games will provide a stern examination of Liverpool.

Despite guilty plea, Paul Manafort still holds the Trump card
Fuelling speculation over Russia's role in the last presidential election is a June 9, 2016 meeting in Trump Tower in NY . On Sunday, Mr Trump's lawyer Mr Rudy Giuliani tweeted: "Mueller can investigate endlessly and he will find no evidence".

Klopp claimed Firmino's injury involved "an abrasion of the eye, but there will be no lasting damage" after he was assessed at a London hospital. "It's going to be fascinating, his third season there too!"

"I think we got a lot of respect because of the way we played last season and I think everyone who saw the final saw that we could have won it against a side in a completely different moment.

Each time, they were incredible games", the Egypt star told France Football.

"That doesn't mean we will win".

"But we need to focus on those things and not "giving statements".

Both sides are attack-minded and Klopp knows the game will present a massive test of Liverpool's defensive credentials.

The Reds welcome last season's outright favourites to Anfield, with the hosts hoping to build on their European heroics that took them all the way to the final in Kiev last-time-out.

"It made sense [to play them] but unfortunately they didn't come through without any problems".
