"It was our last chance to show that we are capable of competing with a team like Liverpool, a team with an incredible mentality", said PSG coach Thomas Tuchel.

"We shouldn't have really let them go two goals in front in the first half".

"As a player you can't just do anything about it can you?" But that is part of European football.

Napoli (six points) and Liverpool (six) are the top two, but only narrowly ahead of PSG (five) and Red Star Belgrade (four) with two games remaining.

Marquinhos gave the Reds a scare at the beginning of the second half, although his goal was correctly ruled out for offside, although Liverpool couldn't quite trouble Gianluigi Buffon in the PSG goal, while Alisson at the other end had to be alert to keep Marqhinhos' header out in the 70th minute. "I'm not concerned. We've played pretty well this season".

The French champions triumphed 2-1 at the Parc des Princes to leap-frog their Premier League opponents and into second place in Group C.

"You think it's the other way around in a crucial match like that?"

The Brazilian had come off with a groin problem eight days earlier but he looked in the mood here, determined to deliver in PSG's biggest Champions League game since they were knocked out by Real Madrid last season without him due to injury. "The last campaign we were stronger through the group stage but we had to win in the last game and managed it, so it's the same this time". "Jurgen does an unbelievable job, he is an unbelievable trainer and you can see his input and his achievement in three and a half years", Tuchel told a news conference.

It proved to be another poor night for Liverpool on the road in the Champions League, as an insipid display means there's plenty of work to do at Anfield in their final game.

Milner said: 'I don't think being in the Europa League in February has crossed anyone's mind. "Our aim is to get out of the group: get the result and get through".

Also, Joe Gomez, Naby Keita, and Fabinho all got a rest against Watford and could be likely to play in the Champion's League fixture. If you go down, you act like you die and then the next moment you get up, yellow card.
