The Saint-Etienne players were wearing shirts carrying the name of William Gomis, a former youth player at the club who was shot dead in the south of France earlier this week.

"I know 10, not yet the 11th and I do not know my game system", he explained.

"However, I say that whether we play in Nimes, or Guingamp, or at home to Saint-Etienne, every game is hard. I'll talk to the key players and I'll be watching Liverpool's game against Tottenham tomorrow and decide on Monday".

The 39 million euros ($45 million) Liverpool paid for Salah from Roma was brilliant business not just based on Salah's production, but the hyper inflation that took place in the market just weeks later when PSG smashed the world transfer record by splurging 222 million euros on Neymar.

"It's an important test for us, not decisive but it's good to start with a complicated game".

PSG's Edinson Cavani scores his side's second goal during their French League One soccer match between Paris-Saint-Germain and Saint-Etienne at the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris, Friday, Sept. 14, 2018. It was good for our confidence ahead of Tuesday's match at Anfield against Liverpool. If we work well every day, if we live well every day as a group, we should be ready for the big matches. "We are confident, though".

Marco Verratti and Lassana Diarra also return at the base of the midfield whilst Alphonse Areola is preferred to Gianluigi Buffon between the posts. "There we saw the difference of class". "We have the best coach in the world".

Buffon, 40, and compatriot Marco Verratti are both banned for the Anfield clash with last season's beaten finalists because of suspensions incurred last campaign, while Dani Alves and Layvin Kurzawa are both out injured - and US worldwide Timothy Weah is not included. We lost too many easy balls and that gave our opponents solutions.
