This game was an example of how much a threat Liverpool are from different types of attacking play.

Last weekend, Solanke was on target for Liverpool U23s in their 3-0 rout of Swansea City in the Premier League 2, which was his only appearance for The Reds teams this term.

"You would like to think if we can remain in the game and have a good platform, that will enable us to create chances and take chances if they come around".

He began last season, his first at Liverpool following a move from Roma, with three goals in six outings and then went on to score 44 times in all competitions.

Klopp, managing his 600th career game, took off full debutant Xherdan Shaqiri at the break, replacing the Switzerland worldwide with James Milner.

Southampton will visit Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday as Premier League season continues.

While he has by no means endured a torrid start to the season, Mo Salah has also not quite looked at his best and against PSG, he looked exhausted.

Liverpool's home record against teams outside the big six since January is W7 D1 L0 and six of the wins have been to nil and the same number (but not the same six) have been by two goals or more, so those are the obvious bets to consider for longer odds than Liverpool's win odds of [1.22].

"Dejan is close", said Klopp.

Regardless of his form in front of goal, he fits the system perfectly, and was always involved in the defensive work, often winning the ball back himself to start attacks.

"Dom trains today, (for the) first time after his concussion".

Corners, set-pieces, counter-attacks and the little bit of luck, which has been a rarity for Premier League Liverpool, were all on show here.

Add to this things like penalties, counter-pressing and the throw-ins they have been working on with Thomas Gronnemark, and they can score from nearly any situation. That is the plan, and to do it with good football players. We are really waiting for him without making pressure on him and we know that it will take a long time.
