Klopp blamed a lack of "rhythm and direction" for his team's failure to add to their lead but remained pleased with the result. Van Dijk told reporters.

Salah might count himself fortunate to still be available for the second leg in Porto on April 17, after escaping punishment for a studs-up tackle on the shin of Danilo in the final minutes.

"To score two goals in the last two games is very pleasing for him, but very important for all of us".

"We gave a few too many set pieces away - I think Porto score about 40% of their goals from set pieces".

What makes this record at home even more impressive is the fact that Liverpool have played Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City, Manchester United, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Roma, Napoli and Porto at Anfield and beaten all but Bayern Munich at their fortress. This is an extremely well-coached team with talented players all over the pitch, and Moussa Marega has scored in six straight Champions League games this season.

"It will be really intense battle, incredible atmosphere and we will have to be ready for that".

Liverpool defeated Porto 2-0 on Tuesday to take a massive step towards reaching the semifinals of the competition. It's nothing to criticise, it was just obvious. 2-0 is a very, very good result. The fine balance Liverpool must strike in maintaining their quest for European glory alongside ending a long wait for a top-flight title was in evidence as Klopp withdrew Mane and Firmino in the final quarter with one eye on Sunday's league visit of Chelsea.

Spurs now hold the advantage ahead of next week's second leg at the Etihad Stadium but Pochettino, despite the deserved victory, still regards City as the favourites.

"We'll give everything we've got then have a well-deserved break after". When we didn't push up in the last line, they chipped the ball in-behind, and the striker was not alone in front of the goal but he had a promising situation at least.

He continued: "So until they start playing convincing, dominant football, which they haven't done with the exception of the Bayern Munich game, this year, I don't see them as having an easy ride to anything".

His blushes were spared four minutes later, however, when Firmino tapped into an empty net from five yards after he had been picked out by Trent Alexander-Arnold's low cross.

"Mo played an outstanding game on the right wing, he was pretty much unplayable".

"Hendo is a brilliant player", Klopp said.

Souness is convinced Liverpool will end up with a trophy this season, as he believes they have come through a bad run of form and will end the season on a high. "The game is still on, we have to go there and fight". We are long enough in the business now [to know] we can not decide it here.

But as Steven Gerrard once said, we go again. He won aerial battles in midfield, put in some crunching tackles and when Porto sat back in the second half, he did brilliantly to prevent the Portuguese side from hitting Liverpool on the counter.
