Porto defender: Salah-Firmino-Mane? They will not pass from me!

  • Memphis Depay may replace Sadio Mane at Liverpool

While the goals scored were important, it was more vital from the Reds' viewpoint that they keep a clean sheet, and they did just that. Liverpool will expect to score over in Portugal, so barring a rare defensive collapse, this should be enough.

The tempo dropped in the second half with Liverpool seemingly content to take a two-goal advantage to the Estadio do Dragao next week, while Porto will be happy to count themselves still in with a chance of qualifying. Worryingly, Porto danger man Moussa Marega could have had a hat trick on another night. Here is a look at this week's first legs, being played on Wednesday and Thursday mornings.

"Liverpool have always suited knockout football under Jurgen Klopp".

Surfing through the best channels and services for UEFA champion's league, we have got the best ones for you. It was a solid performance by FC Porto as the team controlled 68% of the ball and had 7 shots on target.

A tally of 82 points from 33 games is not bad at all, and it remains to be seen how close the Reds can get to Manchester City's record points tally of 100, which they managed last season. Subbed off for Divock Origi in the second half.

Liverpool have largely coped without Gomez thanks to Virgil van Dijk's towering presence at the heart of a much-improved defence. "We stayed in the game and it gave us even more energy". Milner plays it wide to Mane, who in turn finds Firmino. Worth his weight in gold.

It seems unbelievable that the Liverpool forward didn't even get booked for an terrible, over the ball challenge.

It was Firmino who did extend the lead in the 26th minute when he calmly netted from a right-wing cross by Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Henderson has often played in a defensive midfield role but with Brazilian Fabinho taking care of that responsibility, he is now able to push into advanced areas. Not as impressive after the break, when some of his decision-making on the ball left a lot to be desired.

Came on for a quarter of an hour and tried his best to dribble past players and create a chance for the team.

Salah nearly made it two in the 18th minute, but his initial shot after cutting in from the wing was blocked, with the loose ball falling back to Keita who played in Salah with a one-touch pass before the Egypt winger's first-time shot was saved low by Casillas. It's his second goal in four days following his header at Southampton. Substituted for Origi after 73 minutes so should be fresh for the huge clash with Chelsea on Sunday. Very positive with the ball and seems to have his confidence back. Subbed off for Daniel Sturridge later on.
