But four months after losing last season's final, Liverpool showed they might be capable of challenging for the title once again by finding a way to tame Neymar and Mbappe for much of the game. He rarely defends, and even when he does get back he is usually unable to help anyway.
For the French paper, his inability to breakdown the Liverpool defence is not fitting of a player with his clout.
Manager Jurgen Klopp has said that Fabinho will take time to adjust to the pace of the Premier League, however, playing him in Europe against familiar French opposition could be the ideal method of integration. "All I can only say is that he has mocked the world".
"We can talk about this for hours and hours, but it doesn't bring you one centimetre closer to the title", Tuchel added.
For PSG manager Thomas Tuchel there was more late Anfield disappointment for a second successive time.
A failed Cruyff Turn against Leicester City proved he was in fact human; however, Jurgen Klopp wasn't anxious and claimed he was 'really happy it happened because we don't have to wait for it now'. They are the same team, perhaps a little stronger, and we saw that they are a great team. I'm not sure, but maybe for the first time this season, plus Di Maria in the half-space - it makes life quite uncomfortable, to be honest. We didn't learn a lot tonight which we didn't know before, but it's nice to see that we can do it.
'It has been three days after the incident and the recovery went well.
"If you play against PSG you have to reach the next level". "What is sure is that he will play, but in which role, I will not tell!" I think Joe and Virgil tried, lost patience and tried, and we are not ready for that, their formation is better than our formation in that moment, so they pass the next ball and then they had the counter-attacks.
