LONDON ENGLAND- SEPTEMBER 15 Jurgen Klopp manager of Liverpool embraces Georginio Wijnaldum at the end of the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool FC at Wembley Stadium

Brazilian forward Roberto Firmino struck a stoppage time victor as the Merseyside club beat PSG 3-2 in a thrilling Champions League Group C clash on Tuesday.

It is admittedly slightly worrying that his performances this season so far have in no way been reminiscent of last year's superlatives.

Mane has revealed how he begged match-winner Firmino to play a part in Liverpool's thrilling Champions League victory.

Liverpool took a two-nil lead at Anfield courtesy of goals from Daniel Sturridge and James Milner.

The Brazil worldwide, who suffered an eye abrasion in the 2-1 victory over Tottenham on Saturday, shuffled inside then out onto his right foot and applied a low, angled drive past Alphonse Areola.

However, Thomas Meunier got one back for PSG before the break and Kylian Mbappe equalised with seven minutes of normal time remaining.

"We are a team that has experience in the Champions League".

Indeed, Milner converted a crucial penalty to put Jürgen Klopp's side two goals ahead in the first half.

While Liverpool found a late victor, questions have already been asked about the play of PSG star Neymar.

"We've got a tough few games coming up - Chelsea, who have a 100 per cent record, and Southampton at the weekend", he said.

Second time in his visits to Anfield, the German has fallen to his fellow German with a goal in the first minute of extra time.

Shortly before the hour, Liverpool thought they had made it 3-1 when Salah tapped home, but the goal was disallowed for Sturridge's sliding challenge on goalkeeper Areola in the build-up.

Liverpool started as they mean to go on in the Champions League on Tuesday night with a well-deserved 3-2 win over Paris Saint-Germain.

But Brazil forward Firmino came off the bench to steal the points in stoppage time with a predatory finish.

"We are talking about having a £50m player at your disposal because he is potentially a world-class striker", Warnock told BBC Radio 5.
