Liverpool fans would be forgiven for fearing the return of PSG's dynamic duo Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.

Both managed to pick up injuries whilst out on international duty, but to the dismay of the Liverpool faithful, they have both been declared fit for their Champions League clash at the Parc des Princes.

Reds manager Jurgen Klopp remains optimistic about his side's trip to the French capital, and with good reason after Roberto Firmino's added-time strike gave Liverpool a 3-2 win at Anfield back in September.

The German boss has revealed his secret to nullifying the threat of Mbappe, Neymar and Uruguayan target man Edinson Cavani and to be frank, it's pretty straightforward.

The Liverpool players have turned to YouTube to watch as much footage on PSG's star players as possible in order to be ready for their European clash.

Youtube to be Liverpool's secret weapon

“We give them videos but this generation probably watch 500,000 YouTube videos of Mbappe, Neymar and (Edinson) Cavani and they know about their individual strengths more than I do.

“But they can only shine with the ball so that means we have to defend them," Klopp said in a recent press conference.

The former Borussia Dortmund coach has however admitted that no amount of video research can prepare you for the quality that the French champions possess.


“It is difficult to close spaces and if you don’t close it one time, not only with the quality but the speed, you have no chance."

Liverpool can reach the knockout stages with a win in Paris if Red Star Belgrade fail to beat Napoli.

However, Klopp does recognise the enormity of the task, with PSG currently 20 games unbeaten in the Champions League at home.


“We don’t think about it too much. We are sportsmen and we want to win games,” he added.

“It is a tough one to come to Paris and go for a result but I think we should try."
