PSG unbothered by Mbappe, Neymar absences in Saint-Etienne drubbing

Mohamed Salah outshone Neymar and Kylian Mbappe on the Champions League stage last season, but as Paris Saint-Germain's star duo head to Anfield on Tuesday seeking to make amends, the Egyptian is struggling to match the heights of his debut campaign at Liverpool.

Brazil superstar Neymar and World Cup victor Kylian Mbappe watched from the stands as PSG provided flawless preparation for the Champions League opener at Anfield, but the result somewhat flattered the hosts after a shaky first 45 minutes. I told him he wouldn't play and he couldn't train, but he felt good and did the whole session. Today we were without Neymar and Kylian and I'm happy to have used players that were here during the global break.

"We knew PSG were stronger than us but four goals are expensive. Liverpool will reveal something but most importantly it will give us a better idea of our situation". This sort of match is good - we know that it will be a very tight game.

It was Draxler who got PSG off to a flying start at the Parc des Princes, heading home on 22 minutes after juggling Verratti's sumptuous, deft chip over the St Etienne defence.

You've been saying Chrissy Teigen's name wrong
And also Ariana Grande , who said her name has been pronounced wrong her entire career, although somewhat on objective . I'll admit, I'd been saying "tay-gen" for years when referencing internet queen and model Chrissy Teigen .
