Roberto Firmino scores stoppage time victor as Liverpool edge PSG in Champions League. He has never scored more in a year.

DF Jordi Alba, 7 - Although the usually lightning fast Alba was beaten in an early footrace by Lozano, the Spaniard made amends with a superb piece of covering play to foil a PSV attack, earning him high-fives from Roberto and Umtiti. "It will be tough to find anyone else like him", he further added.

Firmino was named on the bench, and in his absence Liverpool gave home fans something to cheer about with two first-half goals to take control of the game, courtesy of Daniel Sturridge and a penalty from James Milner.

Suarez then teed up Messi for his third as the Argentina worldwide calmly slotted home from 10 yards away to put the result even further out of reach.

David de Gea back in contract spotlight while United face artificial threat
Chris Smalling is hoping to turn his World Cup disappointment into a positive by re-establishing himself at Manchester United . De Gea admits United will be at a disadvantage against Young Boys because of the artificial pitch at the Stade de Suisse.

"He has an incredible left foot". "A lot of the time when he takes free-kicks you may as well go directly to the place where you're going to celebrate them".

Talking about Messi afterwards, Barca team-mate Rakitic lauded the Argentina global, telling reporters: "That foot is impressive and he has scored another wonderful goal".

It was an emphatic reminder that the Barcelona superstar remains at the very highest level despite his omission from this year's Federation Internationale de Football Association finalists for the Best Men's Player of the Year award.

"To be honest, we didn't expect to lose this heavily", he said. "I dream of one day playing at Barça, but for now I think only of PSV".

"The Champions League has something special about it and we know that we've not been at our best in recent years".

"Leo is the best in the world".
