Roberto Firmino was among the Liverpool players who arrived at Anfield on Tuesday lunchtime
Liverpool were given a major boost on Tuesday afternoon ahead of their Champions League opener against PSG with a fit and healthy-looking Roberto Firmino among the players arriving at Anfield.
The players and coaching staff were pictured making their way to the ground as they prepare for the big game at home to the French champions and top seeds in Group C.
One notable presence was Firmino, who has been a doubt for the PSG game after suffering a nasty eye injury against Tottenham at the weekend.

Gruesome pictures showed Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen with his finger deep in the Brazilian’s eye socket, however Firmino did not appear to be displaying too many ill effects as he arrived with team mates.
It raises hopes that the forward will be able to start, or at least play a part in, their first Champions League game since last season’s final.
Liverpool’s previous European game was a memorable one – stunning goals, keeping gaffes, and ultimately heartbreak in Kiev.
