“I really fancy two teams this year, either Manchester City or Liverpool”.
Sturridge was replacing Firmino in the starting line-up after the Brazilian suffered a ghastly (though thankfully not overly serious) eye injury during the previous game, Saturday’s 2-1 win over Tottenham.
Liverpool were rewarded for their excellent start as they found themselves two goals up after 36 minutes, Daniel Sturridge getting the opener before James Milner netted a penalty. We only had one session this morning with Bobby but it was time you have to show faith in your squad, it was nice to see Daniel tonight and he paid it back 100 percent. Liverpool conceded one less goal than PSG and deservedly won the game 3-2, yet L’Equipe have rated PSG’s centre-backs higher than or equal to most of their team. Both sides looking to dominate their group stage as they share similar traits in attack.
But Choupo-Moting somehow also got himself a massive move and he too took to the Anfield pitch, replacing Angel Di Maria in the 80th minute after linking up with Thomas Tuchel for the second time.
The midfielder joined Bury on loan in the summer from Rangers in a bid to try and secure regular first team football at an important stage in his career.
Mikel Arteta might have enjoyed the opportunity to sit in the hot seat for Manchester City when the Premier League champions opened their UEFA Champions League season at home to Lyon on Wednesday, but he sure didn’t like the result.
“We knew PSG had their qualities; it was top level”.
Just when you thought Reds supporters couldn’t love the midfielder anymore, he goes and completely wipes out PSG star Neymar, and it’s just as good as it sounds.
“Maybe today we could have displayed a little bit more aggression”, Tuchel said. I think that it was balanced. No game is easy.
