The pressure is off for Liverpool tonight as they host FC Porto in the Champions League, but it’s still all to play for as far as the visitors are concerned. The Reds won each of their first four group stage games to seal top spot and qualification to the last 16, while the Portuguese side sit in second with two games to play - just one point ahead of Atletico Madrid.

While some supporters would perhaps like to see the Reds rotate to an extent and preserve the first-choice stars who will have an inevitably busy run over the December fixtures, Jurgen Klopp’s chances of doing that are hampered by ongoing injuries, especially in midfield. They come into this match full of confidence and looking sharp after a thumping win over Arsenal at the weekend, with the Reds having lost just one game in all competitions this term.

Porto are not much worse than that, in fact, with just two defeats for themselves in 2021/22 - but one of those came against the Reds two months ago, when the the trident of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane each found the net in a 5-1 thrashing.

    Liverpool won a fifth straight Champions League group stage game as they saw off Porto 2-0 on Wednesday night.

    Story continues

    Otavio had the first big chance of the night but sent an effort wide of what was effectively an open goal.

    Sadio Mane thought he had put the Reds ahead before the break when he ran through from Thiago’s pass and side-footed in, but a VAR check ruled it offside. Nothing stopped Thiago himself celebrating soon after the restart though, with a fantastic half-volley from distance finding the bottom corner.

    Takumi Minamino also saw a strike ruled out for offside, before Mohamed Salah made it two amid a host of subs for the home side.

    FULL TIME! Liverpool 2-0 Porto

    21:52 , Jamie Braidwood

    Porto’s final act is to send a corner straight into Alisson’s arms - and that will be that!

    Liverpool stay perfect in Group B with five wins from five. They scored a couple of brilliant goals from Thiago and Salah and were much-improved in the second half.

    Really impressive performances, too, from Tyler Morton, Neco Williams and Takumi Minamino - as well as good minutes for Oxlade-Chamberlain, Thiago, Robertson, Henderson and Milner

    Morton gets a big, big hug from Klopp, as well as from Harvey Elliott. Perfect night for Liverpool.

    Liverpool 2-0 Porto

    21:51 , Jamie Braidwood

    90+2 mins: Milner fizzes a shot from the edge that takes a deflection and sits up for Costa to collect.

    Minamino then picks up the ball and tries to beat a couple of challenges in the area. He tries to find Henderson with a pass inside the box but it’s slightly over-hit.

    That should be about that.

    Liverpool 2-0 Porto

    21:50 , Jamie Braidwood

    90 mins: Porto win a free kick in a decent position on the left - but they can’t beat the first man as Milner heads clear. That sums up their second half.

    There will three minutes added on.

    Liverpool 2-0 Porto

    21:48 , Jamie Braidwood

    87 mins: The life has been knocked out of Porto after those two Liverpool goals - but their spirits may have just been lifted by the fact that Atletico Madrid have conceded late on to AC Milan, who hold a 1-0 lead in the Wando Metropolitano in the other match in Group B.

    It means Porto, Atletico and Milan will all be separated by just one point ahead of the final round of fixtures, as long as it stays that way.

    Liverpool 2-0 Porto

    21:45 , Jamie Braidwood

    84 mins: Francisco Conceição, who is the son of Porto manager Sérgio Conceição, goes down under a challenge from Milner. Liverpool briefly tried to play on as the forward was down - but the play broke down anyway.

    Liverpool 2-0 Porto

    21:42 , Jamie Braidwood

    82 mins: James Milner is the next returning Red to come on for a run-out. Oxlade-Chamberlain makes way after another positive display for Liverpool.

    Liverpool’s injury problems in midfield are starting to clear up with Henderson, Thiago, Fabinho, Milner and Oxlade-Chamberlain are playing a part tonight.

    And that’s without mentioning Morton, who has been excellent on his debut.

    Liverpool 2-0 Porto

    21:39 , Jamie Braidwood

    79 mins: Liverpool take a corner quickly in front of the Kop and Porto are slow to respond. Henderson flights a cross towards Origi at the back post but he is unable to steer the header back on target.

    Liverpool 2-0 Porto

    21:36 , Jamie Braidwood

    76 mins: Henderson goes low from the free kick, trying to sneak it under the wall. He drags it slightly and it ends up wide of the post.

    Liverpool 2-0 Porto

    21:34 , Jamie Braidwood

    75 mins: Lovely from Origi! He drops a step-over to beat Mbemba after the defender gave the ball away on the edge of his box, before he is tripped. The referee points to the spot but he is quickly corrected by the VAR. It was a clear foul, but also clearly a yard outside the box.

    Liverpool 2-0 Porto

    21:33 , Jamie Braidwood

    73 mins: Mane is also taken off, with Fabinho replacing him.

    Tonight is unfolding pretty perfectly for Jurgen Klopp. Liverpool haven’t been at their best but they now hold a comfortable lead and have been able to give Salah and Mane a rest ahead of Southampton on Saturday.

    GOAL! Liverpool 2-0 Porto (SALAH 70’)

    21:29 , Jamie Braidwood

    It’s brilliant from Salah, and Liverpool double their lead!

    Morton starts the move with a fantastic pass over the top to Salah down the right. He holds it up before linking with Henderson, who cuts it back to Salah in the box.

    The next step is wonderful. He feints to shoot, sitting Uribe down on the turf, before steering the ball back across goal and beyond Costa at his near post.

    It’s Salah’s last involvement, as he comes off for Origi. That’s his 17th goal in 17 competitions this season.

    Liverpool 1-0 Porto

    21:28 , Jamie Braidwood

    68 mins: Nice work from Robertson on the left, as he flies in between three Porto tackles. He couldn’t supply the cross, though.

    Williams then takes off down the right after a nice one-two with Henderson, but the flag goes up for offside.

    Liverpool 1-0 Porto

    21:25 , Jamie Braidwood

    65 mins: Chance for Mane to double Liverpool’s lead after the ball drops to him in the box from a corner, but he slices well wide on his left foot.

    Moments before, Robertson almost made an instant impact after good work from Minamino. The forward held the ball up before finding Robertson on the overlap.

    The left-back drilled the ball across the box towards Mane at the back post - but it was blocked and put out for a corner.

    NO GOAL! Liverpool 1-0 Porto

    21:23 , Jamie Braidwood

    63 mins: Minamino briefly thinks he’s scored on his second Anfield appearance in a row - but the flag goes up for offside.

    It came after a lovely move, with Salah linking up with Thiago with a clever one-two that drew Porto players to the ball.

    Salah then switched it wide. The ball was intended to Tsimikas, but it fell to Mane and his shot was blocked.

    It looped up to Minamino who volleyed into the net, but he was offside.

    Henderson and Robertson come on for Thiago and Tsimikas.

    Liverpool 1-0 Porto

    21:20 , Jamie Braidwood

    61 mins: The ball breaks to Oxlade-Chamberlain on the edge of the box but the Liverpool midfielder is off-balance as he reaches for the ball, and he slices it wide.

    Robertson and Henderson are being readied to come on.

    Liverpool 1-0 Porto

    21:19 , Jamie Braidwood

    59 mins: Almost a horror moment for Alisson after the Liverpool goalkeeper plays it straight to Taremi - but the Porto striker was unable to react in time to steer it towards goal.

    Liverpool 1-0 Porto

    21:17 , Jamie Braidwood

    56 mins: Clever defending from Minamino. Liverpool thought they’d cleared the danger but Porto quickly send the ball back into the area. Dias timed his run well and beat the Liverpool back-line, but Minamino tracked the run and put it out for a corner.

    Dias then had a similar chance moments later. He looked offside but the play was allowed to continue as Alisson made the save to deny his shot from the angle. Replays showed that Dias was onside, so that was an important stop from the Liverpool skipper.

    GOAL! Liverpool 1-0 Porto (THIAGO 52’)

    21:11 , Jamie Braidwood

    Pick that out! It’s a screamer from Thiago! What a beautiful, beautiful goal. It defies physics actually.

    Liverpool had a free kick from the right but Oxlade-Chamberlain’s delivery failed to beat the first man. It’s headed out, where Thiago was waiting.

    The Spaniard hits the volley as it was just off the ground, cutting down on the ball and sending the strike whizzing into the net from 25 yards.

    The ball remained about 10 centimetres off the ground the whole way in. Just stunning technique and control.

    Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    21:09 , Jamie Braidwood

    49 mins: CLOSE! The free kick form the right is allowed to travel right across the face and Alisson is forced to palm it away. It breaks to Uribe who had his back to goal and was surrounded by four red shirts, but the midfielder was able to turn and a swivel a shot back across goal. Alisson was beaten but the shot was dragged just wide of the post.

    Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    21:08 , Jamie Braidwood

    48 mins: Mario links up with Otavio on the right before the full-back burst away from Tsimikas. Konate comes across and concedes the foul near the corner flag.

    The defender needs to be careful as he’s on a booking.

    Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    21:06 , Jamie Braidwood

    47 mins: Porto create the first opportunity of the half as Otavio flashes a ball into the box and Taremi beats Williams to the cross, but the header also flashes wide.

    KICK-OFF! Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    21:04 , Jamie Braidwood

    Back underway at Anfield! Liverpool are attacking the Kop in the second half.

    Half time: Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    21:03 , Jamie Braidwood

    Liverpool are out onto the pitch nice and early ahead of the second half, while Porto take their time to emerge from the tunnel.

    The second half is next!

    HALF TIME: Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:58 , Jamie Braidwood

    Our match at Anfield is one of three 0-0s in the Champions League so far tonight. The second is the other match in Group B, with Atletico Madrid and AC Milan goalless at the Wanda Metropolitano.

    The third is probably the fixture of the night, with Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Mauricio Pochettino in Manchester to face Guardiola's City.

    HALF TIME: Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:54 , Jamie Braidwood

    I think it’s fair to say that you can tell which team needs to win this, and which is already through a group winners.

    Porto, in between a couple of moments of chaotic defending, have been pretty good in attack and have managed to get a number of their players in goal-scoring positions.

    Otavio’s miss following Konate’s error was the big one but there have been a couple of other opportunities where they just haven’t been ruthless enough in taking the shot on.

    Liverpool have been fine, but they’ve been flat tonight by their own high standards. Mane’s disallowed goal was the closest they came, and the ease of which that chance opened up speaks to the quality they have out on the pitch.

    HALF TIME: Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:48 , Jamie Braidwood

    Another half-chance for Porto on the stroke of half time, this time as Dias skips around Thiago and drives at goal from the angle. He was held up by Matip and the chance fizzles out, which has summed up Porto’s half. They’ve had the better chances and positions but haven’t been ruthless enough in front of goal.

    Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:46 , Jamie Braidwood

    44 mins: Close! Mane drifts inside and Salah finds him in space. Mane cuts onto his left foot and fires across goal - but a deflection takes it out for a corner.

    Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:44 , Jamie Braidwood

    42 mins: Brilliant from Morton! Taremi ghosts in behind Konate with a run into the box and is picked out by Otavio. The shot was on but the Porto number nine decides to try and pull it back to Dias. Morton nipped in front to clear the ball - and Conceição cannot believe his striker didn’t hit the target there.

    Moments before, Liverpool were on the attack after Oxlade-Chamberlain skipped past a couple of challenges. He had Salah on his right but couldn’t quite find him.

    Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:42 , Jamie Braidwood

    41 mins: This would have been offside, as well, but Liverpool go close as Williams plays an excellent, whipped cross into the box, picking out Minamino. The forward is a couple of yards offside and sent his header well over the bar anyway.

    NO GOAL! Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:39 , Jamie Braidwood

    Disallowed! Mane was offside, just, when Thiago played it through. The lines come out and the game is level once again.

    GOAL! Liverpool 1-0 Porto (MANE 37’)

    20:37 , Jamie Braidwood

    Out of nowhere, Liverpool lead! It’s a gorgeous pass from Thiago that slices Porto open - but it’s terrible defending from them to leave Mane in so much space. The forward had all the time he wanted to pick his spot and roll the ball into the far corner.

    Hang on though, this is going to be checked...

    Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:36 , Jamie Braidwood

    35 mins: Dias sets off on a dangerous-looking dribble down the left wing - he cuts it back towards Evanilson but Thiago tracked the run and got back to toe it towards Alisson.

    Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:34 , Jamie Braidwood

    31 mins: Porto win a throw in after Matip is challenged by Dias - and it leads to another chance for Otavio. The throw into the box is not properly cleared from Liverpool and it lands to the midfielder at about hip height. He attempts to a swivel a volley at goal but he gets underneath it and the shot is sliced into the Kop.

    Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:31 , Jamie Braidwood

    28 mins: Will Porto and Costa ever learn?! The goalkeeper pings another atrocious pass straight to a Liverpool player, this time to Oxlade-Chamberlain, but Salah was in an offside position as the ball was then played forward. Porto boss Sérgio Conceição is going livid.

    Konate is then booked for stepping across Mario and sending him to the turf. Klopp isn’t best pleased, either.

    Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:28 , Jamie Braidwood

    27 mins: More chaos in the Porto box! Salah led the break but his ball into the box is not properly cleared - it lands in between Mane and Minamino and Costa is forced to juggle the ball away from the attacking pair.

    Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:25 , Jamie Braidwood

    24 mins: Almost another disaster for Porto! Remember that Costa gifted Liverpool a couple of goals in the 5-1 earlier this season, and the goalkeeper kicks the ball straight into Mane from a pass-back! It lands at Salah’s feet, but he is unable to steer it on target with enough power and Costa is able to save on the goal line.

    Porto are then forced into an early change. Pepe, who looked over to the bench with the classic rueful look of an injured player, is off and he is replaced by Cardoso.

    Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:23 , Jamie Braidwood

    21 mins: Evanilson takes a couple of moments to get off the ground after he is bundled over by Konate on the halfway line.

    Oxlade-Chamberlain then finds Salah in space on the right - he looks to cross towards Minamino but Pepe steers it back to Costa.

    Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:21 , Jamie Braidwood

    19 mins: Nice from Liverpool. Tsimikas plays a lovely ball around the side of the Porto defence and finds Minamino, who timed his run. Minamino had Salah and Mane waiting in the middle but Mbemba steps across to cut out the cross. Konate wins the header from the resulting corner but it’s straight at Costa.

    Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:19 , Jamie Braidwood

    17 mins: It’s been a good start at Anfield - but the game hits a slight lull as the ball gets stuck out on the right touchline. Morton comes across and does well to skip past a couple of challenges before passing back to Alisson.

    Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:16 , Jamie Braidwood

    14 mins: Liverpool have their first effort on target as Matip meets Williams’ cross - but it’s straight at Costa. The goalkeeper then pinged a wonderful first-time pass towards Dias, but Oxlade-Chamberlain read it and had got back to shut down the counter attack.

    Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:14 , Jamie Braidwood

    12 mins: HUGE chance! Liverpool were on the attack but Konate is disposed on the halfway line after the ball gets stuck under his feet. Suddenly Porto were clear. Dias squared to Otavio, but he steers wide from eight yards! Tsimikas did very well to get back and make the tackle as Otavio looked to strike. There is a brief penalty check but Tsimikas won the ball. A let off for the hosts.

    Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:11 , Jamie Braidwood

    10 mins: Another good moment from Porto. Evanilson spins Konate rather easily and drives into the box, but the defender was able to get back and reach in with his foot to make the block as Alisson came out to make the block.

    Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:09 , Jamie Braidwood

    8 mins: Chance! Tsimikas gets robbed by Otavio on the edge, and the midfielder picks out Taremi with his cross. The striker connected with the header but the ball hit off Matip and almost beat Alisson at his near post! Thankfully for Liverpool, it drifted just wide.

    Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:08 , Jamie Braidwood

    6 mins: A couple of ‘nearly’ moments for Liverpool - first Pepe looked to have made a mess of his clearance as Mane is played in behind, with goalkeeper Costa not helping matters by rushing out, but the defender did just enough to steer the ball away.

    Liverpool again look to hit Salah quickly but Pepe stepped across to intercept.

    Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:06 , Jamie Braidwood

    4 mins: Evanilson flicks an effort on target from the edge of the box but that it is comfortably saved by Alisson - Liverpool’s captain for the evening.

    Morton gets his first couple of touches and is tidy with a couple of balls around the corner in a packed midfield. Oxlade-Chamberlain releases Salah but Zaidu gets back to make an important intervention.

    Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:04 , Jamie Braidwood

    2 mins: Porto stay on the attack and recycle possession impressively before Oxlade-Chamberlain is finally able to block a pass from the left-back Zaidu.

    Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:03 , Jamie Braidwood

    1 min: Otavio pressures Tsimikas in the corner and wins an early set-piece for the visitors. Matip rises well to clear but Konate is then caught out on the edge of the box.

    KICK-OFF! Liverpool 0-0 Porto

    20:01 , Jamie Braidwood

    We’re underway at Anfield! It’s Oxlade-Chamberlain who gets us going, at the second attempt as the referee wasn’t ready. Liverpool are defending the Kop in the first half and Matip’s long pass is charged down but thankfully for Liverpool goes out for a throw-in.

    Liverpool vs Porto

    19:58 , Jamie Braidwood

    Porto are led out by the 39-year-old defender Pepe as the teams make their way onto the pitch at Anfield.

    The Portuguese side have never won at Anfield and they are the side most in need of three points tonight.

    Kick-off is next!

    Liverpool vs Porto

    19:52 , Jamie Braidwood

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, speaking to BT Sport:

    On his starting team: “Some changes we needed to make, some were made for tonight. I like the line-up a lot, I like the bench a lot. We have the most experienced bench I’ve ever had at Liverpool. We’ve got five substitutes and we will use them. I really hope we can play a good game.

    On Tyler Morton: “The boy is ready. He is a smart kid and he will know what to do. He will be excited, he will be nervous, he is human. But at the end he has everything in his toolbox because he’s a good footballer. Nobody plays like 6 like Fabinho, so why should he? He’s a brilliant football player but we have to look after the spaces to make sure he can defend them. That will give him security, confidence, and we then have a good footballer in that position.”

    Liverpool vs Porto

    19:39 , Jamie Braidwood

    While Liverpool have already booked their place in the Champions League group stages, and as Group B winners, there is still plenty at stake at Anfield tonight.

    Porto are locked in a tussle with Atletico Madrid and AC Milan for the second qualification spot, and the visitors are in pole position with two rounds of fixtures remaining.

    Sergio Conceicao’s side sit second with five points, one ahead of Atletico. If Porto were to get a result tonight, and Atletico are held by Milan, it would mean that they would qualify with a draw against the Spanish champions on the final day.

    Luis Diaz is the one to watch for Porto tonight.

    Liverpool vs Porto

    19:30 , Jamie Braidwood

    Thiago has had a frustrating start to his Liverpool career, but the Spain international makes consecutive starts for the first time this season tonight. A sign, perhaps, that his injury troubles are behind him.

    The midfielder insisted this week that he “100 percent” made the right choice moving to Anfield and is fully committed to the club despite being linked with a return to Barcelona.

    Reports in Spain have claimed the Catalans’ new coach Xavi wants to bring his former team-mate back to the Nou Camp.

    “I made the right choice, the right move,” he said. “You never know because the injuries make you stop your frequency to play, to know much more of how your team performs on the pitch.

    “I just want to know about this new adventure that I have here in the Premier League and to try to win all the trophies I can and my commitment is much more with this team.”

    Jurgen Klopp has stayed true to his word tonight and picked a Liverpool team that is capable of beating Porto, with Salah and Mane both starting at Anfield.

    "We always respect the competition but we have to think about ourselves, our schedule and the situation of our players first," Klopp said earlier this week.

    "If we leave them all out, we're going to play with a team that is not a Champions League team. We don't have enough players for that, by the way.

    "We have to line up a team that has a chance to win the game. We need stability, the players need rhythm.

    "Whatever line-up we show tomorrow night, it's all about winning the game - that's what we are here for."

    Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Andy Robertson and Diogo Jota have all been given some time off tonight, which is a boost ahead of Saturday’s clash against Southampton.

    Liverpool vs Porto

    19:14 , Jamie Braidwood

    Jurgen Klopp on Takumi Minamino, who starts tonight after scoring his first Anfield goal against Arsenal on Saturday:

    “Taki scored for us at the weekend after being on the pitch for a matter of seconds and I promise you there will not have been a more popular goalscorer in our group at that moment. You could tell that from all of our reactions.

    “This is of course partly because we love him as a person. He has such a warm and generous soul. However, it was far more than just his endearing personality that made us so pleased. It was because of the attitude he shows and the contribution he makes day in and day out.

    “Without question he is a person who helps set our standards. I cannot praise highly enough the level he shows in training. He takes the maximum possible from each session. He is a coach’s dream.”

    Liverpool vs Porto

    19:10 , Jamie Braidwood

    When Liverpool face Porto, we’ve become to expect two things: lots of goals and big Liverpool wins.

    Under Klopp, the Reds have won 5-0, 4-1 and 5-1 against tonight’s opponents - although those hammerings have all come in Porto.

    Those thrashings have largely made the return matches at Anfield a non-event - let’s hope that’s not the case tonight!

    Liverpool vs Porto

    18:59 , Jamie Braidwood

    Jurgen Klopp on 19-year-old Liverpool debutant Tyler Morton:

    “Tyler represents everything that is great about young footballers at our club.

    “He doesn’t need any more expectation placed on him, so I am not going to write a ‘love song’ here about what he is going to do in the game or what sort of player he is and might be. We will see on that and he will write his own story. But it is the person he is that makes him very special.

    “He earned those Premier League minutes [against Arsenal] and in doing so set an example to the young players who will inevitably follow him. He is such a credit to himself and his family.

    “His job now is to continue to lean in to the best personal qualities that have helped him to this point. That is all: be the same guy who treats each second with the first team as an opportunity to learn and be better.”

    Tyler Morton is handed just his second start for Liverpool, and it’s in the Champions League! What a moment for the 19-year-old midfielder.

    He is one of four Liverpool changes along with Neco Williams - who also makes just his second start of the season - Ibrahima Konate and Takumi Minamino.

    Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane start but Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson and Diogo Jota are rested - or start on the bench, at least.

    Alisson captains the Reds tonight.

    Liverpool vs Porto

    18:42 , Jamie Braidwood

    Elsewhere in Liverpool’s midfield, one player not wanting to be rested tonight will be Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has hit a run of form of late and will be desperate for another opportunity to impress Klopp.

    Oxlade-Chamberlain had perhaps his best performance of the season in Saturday’s 4-0 win over Arsenal, his former team.

    As Melissa Reddy writes, 28-year-old’s shot to re-establish himself at Liverpool has materialised following injuries to James Milner, Curtis Jones and Naby Keita.

    Now, Oxlade-Chamberlain has the chance to aid Liverpool’s next stage of evolution. Can he take it?

    Indeed, Morton made his Premier League debut on Saturday in the closing stages of Liverpool’s resounding 4-0 win over Arsenal.

    And has quick rise to the first team could continue this evening if he is handed a first Champions League appearance against Porto.

    “I don’t know what will happen tomorrow night but the progress from Tyler Morton has been pretty impressive,” Klopp said this week.

    “Tyler had the full pre-season with us, you could see his technical skills but how well educated and how well behaved young people are.

    “He was not overly confident, let me say it like that, he tried to adapt a little bit to what the first team were doing.

    “It was good, not spectacular, but good and then we had the game against Norwich where he came on the second half and played a super game, to be honest, that made all the difference.

    “You could see the next day how the confidence level exploded overnight and I saw for the first time. He is in a good place at the moment. Pretty sure he would give the same answer! Now, let’s work from here.”

    Could this be a possible Liverpool team for the visit of Porto this evening? Neco Williams, Ibrahim Konate, Divock Origi and Takumi Minamino could be some of those to benefit if Jurgen Klopp rotates his side, while academy prospects Conor Bradley and Tyler Morton could see some minutes from the bench.

    Liverpool: Kelleher; Williams, Konate, Matip, Robertson; Fabinho, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Henderson; Salah, Origi, Minamino.

    Porto: Marchesin; Corona, Pepe, Mbemba, Sanusi; Otavio, Uribe, Oliveira, Diaz; Taremi, Evanilson.

    Ahead of the game at Anfield, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was asked about the possibility to rotate his team given the Reds are not only through to the last 16 already, but guaranteed top spot in the group. He acknowledged that he’ll be protecting players who need it, but ruled out fielding a total team of backups and youngsters and noted that fitness and injury risks throughout the squad would play a part in his decision-making.

    “We always respect the competition but we have to think about ourselves and our schedule and the situation of our players first,” he said.

    “In this time of the season, the medical department has a big hand in line-ups.

    “It’s really easy to sit there, all the people who judge us, and say ‘leave him out, leave him out, leave him out’. If we leave them all out and play with a team that is not a Champions League team – we don’t have enough players for that, by the way – then nobody can get injured.”

    Liverpool hammered Porto 5-1 on their own patch at the Estadio do Dragao in late September, a result which was the first loss of the campaign for Sergio Conceicao and his team. It was a humbling outcome and there were plenty of errors on show from the home side as the Reds ran riot - but ahead of the return fixture at Anfield, the Portuguese side’s manager feels they have now worked through those defensive shortcomings.

    “It was some time ago that match. We have corrected our mistakes and we have worked on that,” he said.

    “There were some problems in the positions but we analysed it thoroughly and we are focused on the match, it will be a different match. The match is what we make of it. We cannot control the strategy of our opponents but it won’t be significantly different from what they have been showing in recent weeks.

    “We have our own weapons, our ambitions and we will go there not just for one more match but a match which will be decisive, crucial.”

    Jurgen Klopp on Takumi Minamino, who starts tonight after scoring his first Anfield goal against Arsenal:

    “Taki scored for us at the weekend after being on the pitch for a matter of seconds and I promise you there will not have been a more popular goalscorer in our group at that moment. You could tell that from all of our reactions.

    “This is of course partly because we love him as a person. He has such a warm and generous soul. However, it was far more than just his endearing personality that made us so pleased. It was because of the attitude he shows and the contribution he makes day in and day out.

    “Without question he is a person who helps set our standards. I cannot praise highly enough the level he shows in training. He takes the maximum possible from each session. He is a coach’s dream.”
