Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has praised his side after the Reds’ win over Paris Saint-Germain in their opening game of the Champions League.
The German boss, who normally doesn’t like to point out individual players, has especially hailed Daniel Sturridge and Roberto Firmino following their stunning performances.
Liverpool beat the Ligue champions 3-2 as Sturridge opened the scoring at Anfield before James Milner doubled Reds’ lead.
The Parisians came from behind to level with defender Thomas Meunier and Kylian Mbappe were both on target.
But Firmino, who came in as Daniel Sturridge substitute has then saved the Premier League giants by netting a late winner.
“Daniel (Sturridge) played a super game,” said Klopp.
“I have never seen him as fit as he is in the moment. He was everywhere.”
“He helped left and right and we were in the box when he was needed.”
“Then you can bring Bobby Firmino on and that helps a lot and I loved his goal celebration.”
“It was really important we started like we did.”
“We were so strong and good with the ball. We changed the system because we expected a change from them.”
“We needed all of our focus and we covered a lot of yards and closed all of the gaps.”
Liverpool will play their second European game against Napoli on October 3 at Stadio San Paolo.
