Verratti absence 'big blow for PSG' - Liverpool captain Henderson

"I don't think he's a person who wants to act because if you do that you can not play the football he plays".

Klopp's men are top of the Premier League having won each of their four fixtures so far this season.

In 2018, Mbappe is a household name and a World Cup victor with France, justifying the big bucks paid by PSG to bring the young star to Paris.

Wijnaldum opened the cards for Liverpool in the 39th minute of the game while Brazilian superstar Firmino doubled their lead in the second half before the Spurs returned one back.

Jurgen Klopp has delivered a warning to Paris Saint-Germain by insisting the French champions are yet to face a team like Liverpool. It will be interesting, however, to see how they cope against arguably the most potent attacking trio in world football in Neymar, Edison Cavani and Kylian Mbappé.

L'Equipe say that Klopp's "eloquence and enthusiasm" was a hit with Mbappe and he liked what he heard, with the club willing to make him their joint-highest paid player. "He's an outstanding player, that's clear, but he can deliver, deliver and deliver, which shows he's really good educated boy and he knows what he is doing".

"We were that good it was hard for Tottenham", Klopp said.

Klopp indicated that the eye injury Firmino suffered during Liverpool's 2-1 win over Tottenham on Saturday was not certain to rule him out of the PSG game. He was not fit at the World Cup.

"I always used to put Steven Gerrard up front because he had a massive shot", he said.

"We play football and we want to win the ball, we don't try to act in these kind of things; we try to avoid passes to him, try to avoid him winning challenges - which is a big job to do". I'm pretty sure it's not.

24 - Barcelona have won 24 of their last 26 Champions League games at the Camp Nou (W24 D2 L0), with their last defeat there dating back to May 2013 against Bayern Munich (0-3).

14 - Monaco have failed to keep a single clean sheet in their last 14 Champions League games, the longest current run of sides taking part in the 2018-19 edition of the competition (Galatasaray also 14).

"He got rested at the weekend, so he'll be 100 per cent fresh".

"So another 30 hours roundabout until the game and we will see how it develops".
