UEFA Champions League match report Liverpool v FC Porto 06 March 2018

And the next round will be very hard, I think that's clear, we have a lot of other good teams. Throughout my career I've managed to create goals for the team I have played at.

The only play to bring the almost 55,000 at Anfield to their feet in the first half was a shot by Sadio Mane - who had a hattrick in the first leg - that bounced off the post. "It's about bringing fit players and, in the moment, we are in a league where we all have to deliver, play constantly and all that".

However, he did not make his Champions League debut until nearly two years later in a group game at Olympiakos.

"I don't think for a second about resting anybody".

Reds manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted that he is not taking the tie for granted and will make only two-three changes to his starting eleven for the game. Prior to his withdrawal the Brazilian had been put through on goal by Jordan Henderson for his only chance of the game, but saw his effort well blocked by Felipe.

Klopp's men travel to Manchester United on Saturday in a clash not only laced with huge ramifications due to the rivalry between the sides, but also in the race to qualify for next season's Champions League.

The game is important for both the clubs as 3 points will help the victor to take the 2 place behind Manchester City in the league table. "So, in the situation we are in now, it's clear we will not win the Premier League but it's very positive".

"It was time we showed up again. I think if we are ready and prepared to fight until the end, I am a big believer that we can see ourselves into the final".

The first match ended in a devastating victory of Liverpool with a score of 5-0. That maturity is coming through.

"At this stage of the tournament, you need to have that belief that you can go on and win it".

"[We'll] take it step by step and tonight it's really cool - this year is the first opportunity we had to do it and now we are in time".

"The only thing we're concentrating on is putting in a good performance and getting a win tomorrow night".
