Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp left fuming with referee after PSG loss

  • Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool reached the Champions League final despite a spirited fightback from Roma

Where Verratti was able to pick passes and dictate the tempo for PSG, Liverpool had three nearly identical players doing pretty much the same job in James Milner, Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum.

"It has been effective in the Premier League - Liverpool are second, still unbeaten and have only conceded five goals in their first 13 games - but it has not worked for them away from home in Europe".

A 2-1 defeat for Jurgen Klopp's side left them needing a 1-0 win or victory by two clear goals against Group C leaders Napoli in the final match to reach the knockout rounds.

"It's a red card (Verratti), yes".

PSG defended brilliantly in the second-half to hold onto the win, and here is how we rated Liverpool's players after the match... How many yellow cards did we have?

"It is in our hands, and I don't think you can ask for more". It doesn't happen that often to be 100% honest, but it happened tonight and we were not calm enough.

"But they scored two goals, we lost and that's it".

Salah curling a shot wide was as good as it got for the visitors, for whom Gomez was having a tough time as having been nailed by a reckless over-the-top Verratti challenge was then booked after losing possession to and then pulling back Neymar.

"It's hard. We lost the game because we were not 100 percent and not outstandingly good".

Warnock said of a supposed long-ball approach from the Reds: "Instead of the dynamic and intricate inter-play we saw from them last season, when they were trying to find the front three with 10 or 15-yard passes, they are playing balls up to them from 30 or 35 yards instead".

Liverpool will never lack industry with that midfield three, but not one of those players is able to offer the silk and vision required at this level.

It will not be the first time they have had to do it the hard way and just one defeat at Anfield - September's League Cup loss to Chelsea - since January will give them confidence. With Neymar it was even in the first half.

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

"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".
