Liverpool's Firmino eye gouged by Tottenham defender Vertonghen

Watch Jurgen Klopp’s press conference after Liverpool win 2-1 at Tottenham

Manager Jurgen Klopp has already said that Firmino definitely wouldn't have been ready to play on Monday night, so Liverpool fans should prepare for a Bobby-less side to be named against the oil-rich outfit.

When the two managers last met, Klopp's Liverpool knocked Tuchel's Dortmund out of the Europa League in 2016. From there, Spurs applied the expected pressure for the short amount of time that remained.

Robertson must make sure he negates the Frenchman's impact while still influencing play in the attacking third for Liverpool; a tall order.

Not enough to convince referee Michael Oliver that a penalty should be awarded, a retrospective look at the challenge appears to suggest Liverpool were rather fortunate to come out of the situation unscathed.

Tottenham barely had a sniff of goal, despite having five attackers on the pitch towards the end.

"I do think that PSG have lacked character and experience in each of their last two eliminations", said the 45-year-old.

"We have to be concentrated, give everything, and play good football".

PSG unbothered by Mbappe, Neymar absences in Saint-Etienne drubbing
The win maintains the French champions' 100% start to the season and keeps them top of Ligue 1. He told www.asse.fr: "Based on the first period, the score is very hard on us".

Should Mane also find the target this evening, he will become only the fifth different Liverpool player to score in four successive matches in Europe - and the first since Steven Gerrard did so in five during the 2007-08 season. Now we won a few games, that's good, but it doesn't change anything for us. We could have scored more, but we controlled the game in a way. Everybody who saw the picture after the game, we were all shocked. Now we have to prove that and do it again and again and again.

Although he did not play poorly at Wembley, he was selfish at times, desperate to get his name on the scoresheet when others around him were in better positions for a pass.

The Reds will be hoping to go one better than they managed last season when they were beaten by Real Madrid in the final of the competition, but they have not been handed the easiest of starts.

"I have no clue what exactly happened, but it's something with the eye and, at the moment, it's not comfortable for him".

Ibrahimovic scored 62 of his goals for Sweden with the rest coming while playing for Malmo FF, Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and now the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer.

"So far the best [result] was the first matchday-but it depended a bit on the opponent, maybe-and now this today was by far the best performance of the season".

To talk about a "season-defining" run of games in September might seem premature and, in most seasons, it would be.
