Setting up with a 4-4-2, the French side had a solid shape defensively, while their attacking play was at times too much for the Reds to handle.

Liverpool's immediate Champions League future has come down to an all-or-nothing decider at home to Napoli next month following a frustrating 2-1 defeat to Paris St Germain in France. "It was clever from PSG, especially Neymar, but a lot of others went down like it was something serious and we were not that calm anymore".

Klopp's side have even more of an incentive to topple Napoli and Ancelotti after his comments and need either 1-0 win or a victory by two clear goals to advance.

Marco Verratti was running the game in midfield, although the Italian was fortunate not to be sent off for a unsafe tackle on Joe Gomez midway through the first half.

"It's a red card (Verratti), yes". I think in the second half we did it better. I know it is really hard to stay calm in that situation and even Joe Gomez got a yellow card.

Klopp singled out Neymar for criticism after the match and said Liverpool were made to "look like butchers".

Milner said: 'I don't think being in the Europa League in February has crossed anyone's mind.

"Decision-making is the word for tonight, of course, because we couldn't find it", said Robertson.


Liverpool possess two rising stars in Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold, but they have both struggled while playing at right-back in the Champions League this season.

Neymar was the chief culprit in the Parc des Princes as while the Brazil global produced some classy moments, including starting and ending the counter-attack which resulted in PSG taking a 2-0 lead, he dedicated far more time to throwing himself to the ground and rolling around.

"Sadio Mane was outstanding against PSG, and was the one Liverpool forward who looked up for the fight".

"It's then in the referee's hands to give fouls if he thinks it is a foul".

Klopp moaned: "If you act like you die and the next moment you get up again, you give a yellow card. Then it's the 11th of December, we have a proper final at Anfield".

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

Keita has started in just five games for Liverpool in all competitions and will hope to stay fit and play a bigger role in the coming weeks.
