Liverpool’s Champions League campaign under threat after defeat to PSG

Liverpool host Napoli in their final game of the group stages.

There were six bookings for the visitors with Liverpool also dismayed that Marco Verratti was not sent off... I know it is really hard to stay calm in that situation and even Joe Gomez got a yellow card.

An uncharacteristic error by Virgil Van Dijk saw the Holland defender half-clear Mbappe's shot to Bernat and he cut inside to squeeze a right-footed shot between the closing Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson with the ball taking a deflection off the defender.

Mohamed Salah is "out of sorts" for Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp's front three are not "clicking in the same way" as part of a long-ball system, says Stephen Warnock.

"For me it's a red card".

Liverpool rallied after James Milner's penalty got them back in the contest, but an equaliser eluded them in the second half.

Liverpool's ground, Anfield, has been synonymous with big European nights and enthralling atmospheres, however the Napoli boss Carlo Ancellotti tends to disagree.

"The penalty, I have no idea why it was a late decision". 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 was not even a foul for him, unbelievable.

"It's another massive game and we can bounce back straight away".

Home advantage is likely to be a big factor for Klopp's side, who have won both of their games at Anfield in Europe this term.

"But it's a tight game in a very important competition".

Asked why last season's finalists have been below par away from home during the current campaign, Milner said: "Red Star we didn't play well, Napoli we conceded in the last minute".

"The little hurdle was then the 500,000 interruptions in the second half".

"Obviously they're world-class players but I don't think it's needed in the game at times", added the Dutchman.

"That made the boys, in a negative way, aggressive, which doesn't help to play football".

Much has been made of PSG's theatrics during Wednesday's clash at the Parc des Princes, with Milner penalised by the referee on a number of occasions.

"We suffered a lot of fouls".

Klopp moaned: "If you act like you die and the next moment you get up again, you give a yellow card".
