"We still respect them how they are as players because they're world-class players, but it's not really necessary at times".

Liverpool's defeat in Paris, their third successive loss away from Anfield in Group C, has left Klopp's team needing to beat Napoli at home next month by at least two goals to be certain of qualification for the round-of-16.

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

Then I saw the Verratti foul and wow.

Both Napoli and PSG now sit above Jurgen Klopp's side in the table and if Liverpool are to finish third then they will become part of the Europa League knockout stages in the new year.

"The problem I have a little bit is that I, again, have to create the stories with my name - "Klopp said", "Klopp said", the Liverpool manager told BT Sport.

"Decision-making is the word for tonight, of course, because we couldn't find it", said Robertson. How many yellow cards did we have - five, six, seven?

"It is in our hands, and I don't think you can ask for more".

Winfrey said on her show that she was stunned to learn about her sibling, Patricia Amanda Faye Lee, who also appeared on the show. Oprah said her relationship with her mother was always rough. "I suddenly land in a place that's completely foreign to me".

PSG survived that let-off and went on to double their lead thanks to a clearly wound up Neymar. I do not say Paris did not deserve (to win).

STAR MAN Had it not been for the efforts of Alisson in goal for Liverpool, especially in the first half, then PSG could've been out of sight by half time. "The last campaign we were stronger through the group stage but we had to win in the last game and managed it, so it's the same this time". It does not happen often, the crowd is up and we were not calm enough.

James Milner converted a penalty just before halftime to reduce the deficit.

A 1-0 win would see Liverpool equal on points, head to head, and on goal difference with Napoli.

For all his rolling-around antics Neymar can turn it on in a flash and, having collected the ball 25 yards inside his own half, he shook off compatriot Roberto Firmino and exchanged passes with Mbappe before releasing his pacy team-mate down the left.

"If you had said 'you have to win your last home game to get through the group, ' I think everyone would have been fine with it".

PSG are a further point adrift of Napoli but will have home advantage against Liverpool FC on Wednesday night.
