Liverpool on course for Champions League semi-finals after Porto win

Adjust Comment Print

With only five minutes on the clock, the home side took the lead through the rejuvenated Naby Keita, but his effort from the edge of the penalty area took a huge deflection off the legs of Porto's Brazilian defender Militao, looping beyond Iker Casillas and into the Anfield Road net. This was Fabinho-Keita-Henderson, the midfield that - to borrow a Jose Mourinho expression from his Real Madrid days - represented Klopp's high-pressure triangle.

It's worth acknowledging that Heung-min Son, who has arguably been Tottenham's best player this season, scored the victor after Kane left the pitch, but it's also worth acknowledging Kane was replaced by Lucas Moura.

He slipped in an inch-perfect ball between Porto's left-back and centre-back, Alexander-Arnold crossed for Firmino, who passed the ball across the face of goal for Firmino who could not miss. The Guinea global unleashed a shot, which got deflected off Oliver Torres into the back of the net.

Liverpool's excellent performance was also exemplified by Firmino, whose best performances have tended to come in Europe so far this season.

They did just enough to suggest the second leg will not be as straightforward as last year's encounter - a goalless draw at Anfield - but having reached the final 13 months ago Liverpool should have enough experience to get the job done having beaten Bayern Munich in Germany last time out. There were some good moments in the game [but] obviously we can do better.

Yet his lovely, defence-splitting pass to Trent Alexander-Arnold, which set up Firmino's goal to make it 2-0, showed he is much more than just a midfield workhorse. "You can see that they're risky going forward and had a couple of half chances", Henderson said.

"A really, really good result", Jurgen Klopp called it. His goal was lovely. It was pretty much clear, and we scored two wonderful goals. There were gaps which Porto's players will feel they could and should have exploited.

The Liverpool forward comes over the top of the ball and clearly plants his studs onto the shin of his opponent.

Mueller report will be released within a week:US attorney general
Barr said in the summary released last month that Mueller didn't find a criminal conspiracy between the campaign and the Kremlin. It is unclear what the fragment refers to exactly, or why Mueller would add a caveat like that but not pursue criminal charges.

"Hendo is a brilliant player", Klopp said.

"Sorry about that, but we needed him there". He obviously likes that position, so it was my fault that he played for one and a half years as a [No.] 6.
