"Of course, it's important that we don't have only one goal-scorer", Klopp said after an impressive 2-1 win over Tottenham on Saturday that should have been a far more comprehensive victory if the visitors had taken their chances. They saw City, they saw Rome, they saw Porto.

"In the moment, it is a different club to the club I joined when I came in". I know it's a cliché and it might sound boring, but what else could we do?

"We are in the place where we want to be without being satisfied with anything".

Liverpool's start to this season has raised hopes of a genuine Premier League title challenge, with Klopp overseeing five wins out of five.

Klopp was talking of the belief, the positivity and the reputation that last season's Champions League campaign helped Liverpool rediscover.

"The players they have, the manager they have, they all brought it together to go as far as possible in the Champions League", he added. When you're fortunate enough to play for a club like Liverpool you have a duty to try to win every game you play. Expect to see some goals and some near winners, but this one ends as it started - even. PSG 2, Liverpool 2.

Tuchel stood by his prematch opinion that PSG have lacked character over the past two seasons when going out to Barcelona and then Real Madrid, but also pointed to Liverpool's Champions League pedigree.

Unai Emery vows to play his strongest team in the Europa League
The Uruguay worldwide is still waiting to make his first Premier League start under new manager Unai Emery at The Emirates. Both Matt Ritchie and Ayoze Perez failed to make a difference while Jacob Murphy also lacked support from his teammates.

"We are a challenger again for pretty much everything, especially in each game".

"I don't think there is any game in the world where you would say beforehand, 'No chance Liverpool, ' which is good".

"We have players who can play in my position like Gini [Georginio Wijnaldum], who at the minute is doing it brilliantly". At that moment, we said to ourselves: 'We have done it, perhaps we can do it again'.

"There is nothing in us that thinks that's it".

James Milner has started the season in excellent form and has looked like a new signing playing on the right of a midfield three for Liverpool.

Jürgen Klopp was asked to cast his mind back to Kiev, to that 3-1 defeat by Real Madrid in last season's final, and consider the fallout as his side prepare to return to the Champions League tonight. But, on the other side, it's quite hard to make a preparation, because they have never played against us. "I know we are quite good but we have to respect them without getting afraid of them". But the Reds have improved big time at the back, in part because of having Alisson in goal, a player Neymar knows well.

"That match gave us confidence".
