Kylian Mbappe equalised for the visitors seven minutes from time and just when it looked like the tie was going to end in a 2-2 draw, Firmino popped up with a special strike to maintain Liverpool's ideal start to the season.

Liverpool have very much made Anfield their fortress. No Premier League team has scored at the famous stadium since March last season.

For all these reasons, the Spanish press are tipping the Reds for European Glory.

Although his rusty performances can definitely be excused so early into the new season, what might slightly be more worrying for Jurgen Klopp is his reaction to Roberto Firminho's victor right at the death.
