Another substitute, Roberto Firmino, delighted the Liverpool fans in the Anfield crowd by adding the second in stoppage-time with a well-taken lob from inside the area.

Brazil striker Neymar made a spectacular return on Sunday after a three-month absence with a foot injury and celebrated a superb individual goal with his surgeon.

Willian found Coutinho in space, he slid the ball to Neymar and the PSG man did the rest, facing up to Duje Caleta-Car before cutting onto his right foot and blasting high into the net.

After his foot surgery in Brazil and with his status for Russian Federation 2018 up in the air, Neymar left no doubts that he's ready to go.

Just 98 days after suffering an injury he feared would keep him out of the upcoming World Cup in Russia, Neymar was back with a bang at Anfield. Brazil "improved in the second half after Neymar made the difference".

The striker also thanked local fans for their support, saying "it is good to play at home".
