Mohamed Salah was prevented from celebrating Roberto Firmino's late victor during Liverpool's 3-2 victory against PSG in the Champions League on Wednesday, as the Egyptian was selected for a drugs test, according to the Mirror. "This morning he came in and said 'I'm fine'".
It's way too early to start calling Salah a "one season wonder" and the fact is expectations of him are now higher following his exploits from past year. But Mauro Icardi's brilliant late volley brought the hosts level, and Matias Vecino headed in a stoppage-time victor for Inter, back in the Champions League for the first time since 2011-12.
But Roberto Firmino came off the bench to snatch the points with a dramatic stoppage-time victor just days after suffering a nasty eye injury against Tottenham.
Firmino scores winning goal in the Champions League game against PSG at Anfield, Liverpool. We have to. Although we see ourselves [there], we have to keep making the point.
Indeed, Milner converted a crucial penalty to put Jürgen Klopp's side two goals ahead in the first half.
The Belgian scored a quality goal in the first half which meant that Liverpool went into the break with the Paris-based club breathing down their necks. PSG managed to pull a goal back before half-time through Belgian Defender Thomas Meunier, who netted with a smart finish from inside the box.
"Titles are won when you don't necessarily play well - but still come out with three points". Firmino made that chance count.
"We lost a ball that usually we don't lose", Thiago Silva said, "and we were punished for that mistake".
"You can see that by looking at what he's done with this team; how we play together and work for each other". "Maybe we need to improve in our intensity in some areas of the field".
