Carragher, a Champions League victor with Liverpool in 2005, was irked by antics he thinks should be beneath players of such quality, suggesting they threaten to overshadow Neymar's career in particular.

Charlie Nicholas is backing Paris Saint-Germain to claim a 3-2 win over Liverpool FC in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

"We just need to bounce back". I think in the second half we did it better.

PSG face an away trip to Bordeaux this weekend when they return to Ligue 1 action, while their final Champions League group game against Red Star Belgrade presents a great chance for the French side to reach the last 16. It was an important game and everybody tries to do it like they have to.

"Tonight we looked like butchers when you look at how many yellow cards we had".

That happened against Liverpool, though, with the former Pescara midfielder giving a masterclass to highlight the big deficiency in Klopp's team. Thiago Silva, the captain and a centre-back, rolling around in the corner - they are are a great team with great players and don't need to resort to these tactics.

North London derby is bigger for Arsenal than Totenham, says Paul Merson
Tottenham must still beat Barcelona on December 11 at the Camp Nou to make sure of advancing to the knockout phase. Both men are back in training, but neither have been given the all-clear to get involved in this game.

In September Liverpool had swamped their opponents in the middle of the pitch but it was a completely different story in the French capital with PSG holding all the cards.

"If you can't win your home games in the Champions League then you don't deserve to go through", he said. Going into the game Klopp and his team knew a loss wouldn't knock them out, though a win could get rid of PSG from the competition.

That should have ensured a comfortable cushion for the hosts at the break, but Liverpool were gifted a route back into the game in first-half stoppage time.

Warnock said of a supposed long-ball approach from the Reds: "Instead of the dynamic and intricate inter-play we saw from them last season, when they were trying to find the front three with 10 or 15-yard passes, they are playing balls up to them from 30 or 35 yards instead".

Meanwhile, following the defeat to PSG, Liverpool coach Klopp criticised PSG's gamesmanship during the match. "I am sure we will have another special night", Robertson said of the December 11 meeting with Napoli.

"If you had said 'you have to win your last home game to get through the group, ' I think everyone would have been fine with it". We know it was a tough group all along, the Champions League is tough.
