Neymar's antics vs. Liverpool were unsurprising foolish to expect otherwise - James Milner

Liverpool are guaranteed to go through if they beat Napoli by two clear goals

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp was unimpressed by PSG stars staying down after tackles to break up the flow of the Champions League clash, which finished 2-1 to the Ligue 1 champions on Wednesday.

The sense of frustration at finding themselves in such a delicate position was further fuelled by Klopp's anger at PSG's antics as they sought to cling on to a crucial victory gleaned through first-half goals from Juan Bernat and Neymar.

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

Despite the fact Liverpool were outfoxed in midfield and run ragged by PSG's electrifying front three, ex-Red Carragher was disgusted by the theatricality from several members of the French outfit, singling out Neymar and Thiago Silva specifically.

Then I saw the Verratti foul and wow.

The official also appeared to be persuaded to give a penalty to Liverpool - converted by James Milner - after seemingly initially gesturing for a corner when Angel Di Maria brought down Sadio Mane in the box.

PSG knew a defeat here coupled with an unfavourable result in the night's other Group C game could see the ambitious Qatar-owned club eliminated already, which would amount to little short of a catastrophe for them.

"The penalty, I have no idea why it was a late decision. I am sure we will have another special night", Robertson said of the December 11 meeting with Napoli. It was not even a foul for him, unbelievable.

"But as players, we should be able to bounce back either way but it is a nice game, they are always great games to play in derbies".

Asked why last season's finalists have been below par away from home during the current campaign, Milner said: "Red Star we didn't play well, Napoli we conceded in the last minute". But it was an important game and everybody tries to do it like that.

Home advantage is likely to be a big factor for Klopp's side, who have won both of their games at Anfield in Europe this term.

"The little hurdle was the 5,000 interruptions tonight, but the referee still thinks he did everything right", he added.

"That made the boys, in a negative way, aggressive, which doesn't help to play football". You could say it was smart (from PSG), but the referee let that happen. But it still feels a bit rubbish and now we have to use Anfield one more time.
