Liverpool finally came up against a formidable opponent in the form of European giants, PSG. But even then it wasn’t enough to topple the Reds, having won the game 3-2. Fans took to twitter later to celebrate and to talk about that disallowed goal.
Van Dijk appeared to hold the back line strong, perhaps too strong, as he saw a yellow card for pulling on Mbappe. This didn’t appear to have any effect on the team though as a few minutes later Sturridge broke out his signature dance moves for an incredible header with a cross from Robertson. This was followed swiftly by a penalty from Milner, bringing the score to 2-0.
As the second half rolled on Sturridge appeared more hungry for success and the Reds were on the ball, covering a lot of ground and working hard to prevent PSG from levelling until Mbappe put one past Alisson. Firmino came on and smashed a 92nd minute goal to pull Liverpool to a win. Fabinho also made his debut and conceded a foul seconds later. You can’t win them all.
FUCK ALL U STURRIDGE DOUBTERS IVE BEEN TELLING MAN

Neymar, Mbappe, Cavani, Di Maria, Thiago Silva all on the field.
Salah, Mane, Van Dijk, Alisson all on the same field.
And still James Milner is the best player on the pitch.

Absolutely robbed of a goal, Sturridge gets full contact on the ball and has every right to go for said ball.
In no world is that a foul.

Is it lawful for Milner to play like that? At his age, most players are goalkeepers.
