Jurgen Klopp praises Neymar's 'smart' play-acting in build up to PSG clash

Liverpool will be desperate to kick-off their Champions League group stage campaign with a positive result when Paris Saint-Germain arrive at Anfield on Tuesday night.

"No idea, to be honest", was Klopp's response when asked about Firmino's potential availability during the pre-match press conference.

However, as they prepare to face one of the world's most daunting attacking tridents in Neymar, Mbappe and Edison Cavani, Klopp could be without one of his prolific front three. He is much better, ' Klopp said.

A weekend victory over Tottenham Hotspur, also in the Champions League this season, will further boost Liverpool's confidence-but now comes an even bigger test in the shape of PSG.

"Because I've played against him before and he's a very, very good player, a world-class player".

"He has to protect himself".

Brazilian global Neymar has come under fire in recent months for his antics, having been accused of diving regularly at this summer's World Cup. With the squad we have got, we have the best chance we have had.

The England worldwide said he had no problem with the selection choices made by Klopp.

With "Angry Waters" Rising, Officials Warn Of Risk To Life From Florence
Meanwhile, the city of Wilmington had been largely cut off from the rest of North Carolina by rising floodwaters from Florence. Long said more havoc lays ahead as the storm broadens its geographic scope over regions deeply saturated with water.

"The players they have, the manager they have, they all brought it together to go as far as possible in the Champions League", he added. "And [we do] not just have to be focused on him, we've got to stop the whole team, which will be hard, but we're a good team as well and we can certainly cause them problems".

"We play football and we want to win the ball".

"We try to avoid passes to him".

Klopp and Tuchel are the highest profile German coaches around today, with both men having followed strikingly similar paths at home before taking up jobs with two of Europe's biggest names.

"Because if you are like that you can not play the football he plays". I am pretty sure it is not.

"When I saw a few games at the World Cup and I know people are talking about that and it looked like he made a bit more of situations".

A role he should have no worries about undertaking, Salah could switch from the flank and it could see Xherdan Shaqiri handed his first start of the season, as he can join Sadio Mane on the wings with that duo providing Salah with the service, and Mane and Salah can interchange with each other to upset the PSG defensive line.
