Klopp hails 'best game of the season' for Reds

An immaculate start to their Premier League campaign was backed up by a thrilling Champions League victory against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night, with Paddy Power ambassador Ince convinced Liverpool's time has come to start winning silverware under Klopp.

Celebrating Liverpool's stoppage-time victor by covering his left eye, Roberto Firmino was finally able to jest about the injury that almost denied him a chance to face Paris Saint-Germain. But the heavyweight encounter of the evening was at Anfield, and the Group C match between last season's beaten finalists and the ambitious PSG lived up to expectations.

The striker, Firmino's replacement in the starting XI, had "a super game and scored a super goal" as per Klopp's analysis.

But Firmino, who came on as a second-half substitute after recovering from his eye injury, scored a superb victor in injury time to seal three points for Jurgen Klopp's side.

Andy Robertson was brilliant on the opposite flank and it was his sublime delivery that Daniel Sturridge headed in to put Liverpool 1-0 up after half an hour. But the French champions pulled one back before the interval through Thomas Meunier - the goal allowed to stand despite Edinson Cavani being offside in the build-up. To a man, we were brilliant I thought.
