Former Liverpool midfielder Jan Molby has told Reds manager Jurgen Klopp that he doesn’t need to overthink his game plan when his side will travel to Paris Saint-Germain next week.
The Merseyside club will take on the French champions on Wednesday night at Parc des Princes in their Champions League group stage showdown.
Klopp side beat the Parisians 3-2 on 18th of September in their European reverse fixture at Anfield.
PSG stars Neymar and Kylian Mbappe suffered injuries playing for their country in midweek and both are doubtful for the clash.
Therefore, Molby thinks that Klopp doesn’t have to make a special plan for the game and insists the German has nothing to lose at the Parc des Princes.
“Liverpool should simply go for it at Paris Saint-Germain next week,” Molby wrote in his column for the Liverpool Echo.
“There is little difference between a draw and a defeat – either result would almost certainly leave them needing to beat Napoli at home in the final group game to progress.”
“But victory in France gets the job done with a game to spare.”
“What will be in Liverpool’s favour is that they’ve played PSG already this season.”
“I know PSG are a completely different proposition at home compared to away.”
“However, we’ve played them at Anfield and seen some of the weaknesses they have. And with that in mind, I’d expect Jurgen Klopp to be very much on the front foot next week.”
“We may be exposed their weaknesses. We exposed that their front three may not work quite so hard, and we may make it not so much a physical game but one where a lot of hard work is required.”
“Klopp will feel that if we are at our best, then we have a real chance.”
“But PSG at home is a different ball game. We saw little glimpses of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar at Anfield, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they are in full flow next Wednesday.”
“Of course, there are injury concerns over the both. It certainly looked like Mbappe hurt his shoulder while playing for France.”
“But this game is their season. This is a game PSG have to win.”
