GETTY Liverpool news Thomas Tuchel opens up on the Champions League tie

Paris Saint-Germain make the trip to Liverpool in the opening round of Group C fixtures having started their Ligue 1 campaign with five successive victories - a run matched by the Reds in the Premier League.

PSG manager Thomas Tuchel has given Jurgen Klopp a lifeline by revealing 10 of the 11 players who will play against them on Tuesday.

Mbappe was absent as he began a three-match ban handed down following his red card in the win at Nimes just before the global break, and Neymar sat alongside him in the crowd, rested after playing for Brazil in a friendly in the United States in midweek.

Edinson Cavani scored a 51st-minute penalty after he had been fouled in the area before winger Angel di Maria and Moussa Diaby added goals late on. Today we were without Neymar and Kylian and I'm happy to have used players that were here during the global break.

PSG handed 10-time champions Saint-Etienne their first loss this season and extended their lead over second-placed Dijon to six points. "Not yet the 11th, and I do not know my game system". "However, I say that whether we play in Nimes, or Guingamp, or at home to Saint-Etienne, every game is hard".

Speaking in the mixed zone at Parc des Princes after the match, midfielder Marco Verratti expressed his happiness at being back on the pitch and teeing Draxler up for his goal, while the Italy worldwide also admitted that he regrets the red card that will keep him out of next week's Liverpool clash.

"We know that Anfield is one of the toughest trips in Europe". It will be a big test for us.
