James Milner defiant after PSG defeat

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.

But his counterpart, Tuchel, believes that the Liverpool manager is trying to deflect attention from his team, who now need to beat Napoli in their final group game to stand any chance of reaching the last 16.

"There was a clear red card exactly in front of me from [Marco] Verratti". I don't know how they go back and speak to the families and wives in the player's lounge.

"We had six, seven, eight yellow cards and were close to a red card".

"I don't know if there's any explanation for that right now because I can't think of one, otherwise we should have used it already".

But with Liverpool needing to tighten up at the back after those two away defeats, Dejan Lovren alongside Van Dijk must have been a better option for the Liverpool coach because it ensured that he wasn't exposing two youngsters the devastating firepower of Neymar, Mbappe and Edinson Cavani. It wasn't something we quite dealt with tonight.

PSG survived that let-off and went on to double their lead thanks to a clearly wound up Neymar. "But other than that, they scored two goals, we lost and that's it".

"If we don't do that, we'll take whatever happens from there - Europa League or whatever".

"I think it's going to be a good game, the atmosphere will be good and that will help", said Milner.

In September Liverpool had swamped their opponents in the middle of the pitch but it was a completely different story in the French capital with PSG holding all the cards.

For all his rolling-around antics Neymar can turn it on in a flash and, having collected the ball 25 yards inside his own half, he shook off compatriot Roberto Firmino and exchanged passes with Mbappe before releasing his pacy team-mate down the left. The referee did not initially give a penalty but then rightly changed his mind, and Milner beat Gianluigi Buffon from 12 yards.
