PSG are favourites against Liverpool - Klopp

Asked if Firmino would be available to take on the French side, Klopp said: "He couldn't play today, no chance, but we are hoping tomorrow".

In this moment, it is a different club to the club I joined when I came in. "We expect a blistering start, but we will give everything because we also know that we can count on our supporters to give us a boost". Klopp referred to PSG as being "built to win the Champions League" and while that is true, the feeling in France is that Liverpool pose as big a threat to their ambitions as anyone else. We are not a little bit satisfied.

He was not referring to the main stand that opened five months after Thomas Tuchel's previous visit to Anfield when, as the Borussia Dortmund manager, he was dumbfounded by Liverpool's stoppage-time victory in the Europa League quarter-final.

Henderson, who skippered Liverpool last season on their run to the Champions League final, where they lost to Real Madrid, has been given a restricted start to the campaign after returning late to pre-season after the World Cup.

Harry Kane's worn out displays so far this season and the distraction of Hugo Lloris's drink-driving arrest have added to the feeling that Pochettino faces the acid test of his managerial skills this season. "I understand that", said Klopp on Monday.

Tuchel stood by his prematch opinion that PSG have lacked character over the past two seasons when going out to Barcelona and then Real Madrid, but also pointed to Liverpool's Champions League pedigree. We are a challenger and we are a challenger again for pretty much everything, especially in each game.

"I don't think he's a person who wants to act, because if you are like that you can't play the kind of football he plays".

"Winning the first game is always important but it will be hard because Paris are one of the favourites", Klopp told reporters.

The Reds trio are only one behind their continental counterparts on 99 but Klopp is aware of the quality his players will face at Anfield.

"There is nothing in us that thinks that's it". In my own lifetime, I have not witnessed a Liverpool side where the question of who makes the starting XI stretches beyond a list of twelve or thirteen names.

"And Neymar we all know about his quality".

James Milner has started the season in excellent form and has looked like a new signing playing on the right of a midfield three for Liverpool. "I know we are quite good but we have to respect them without getting afraid of them".
