History Suggests Liverpool Must Start Hard & Fast Against Porto

Share

As Karius did in the group stages of the competition, the former Sunderland goalkeeper had been expected to come back in for Wednesday's [14 February] Champions League tie against Porto in Lisbon, but Klopp has suggested that rotation policy between the sticks may now have changed. It's feels good. Everything is prepared.

The visitors may well be able to use their Nou Camp experience as a positive and go into this first leg with a view to attacking at every opportunity rather than sitting back like they did against Barcelona.

"With all the talk about getting into the top four and qualifying for the Champions League for next season, we shouldn't forget that we're still in the competition this season".

They have won 12 of their last 14 games, and they must have a sense of optimism ahead of the tie. I know it was Benfica who were shocking in the group stages, but I think the standards have definitely dropped with Portuguese sides in general and there's not much between the top sides in their league right now.

"It is our job to deal with greater responsibility and I think we have done that so far".

"But it is such a long way away and there are only good teams left in this competition". In fact, I hate it.

"I only answer nicely now because I am friendly and we are in public but if someone asked me about the round after the round in private I would leave the room".

However, Klopp points to last month's thrilling 4-3 win over runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City as all the evidence he needs to believe in their quality. I like it, but to be honest they've not played 20 times against a team like us.

Karius has been Liverpool's preferred choice in Premier League matches since the win over Manchester City. We know it's a place where the crowd can make a difference.

"We need to keep going and they need to keep scoring for us, and as a team, we just need to keep keeping clean sheets".

"I don't know if they are going to be afraid or not but we will make their life hard for sure".

Robertson said: 'They're the ones putting us in front.

German boss Jurgen Klopp has chose to take a 25-man squad, believing that a four-day training camp after the game - due to Liverpool not being involved the FA Cup - will be beneficial even for those who are unavailable. I have to make a decision for tomorrow night and that's all.

Having been ineligible to play a part in the club's Champions League success, he will be even more determined to guide his side to a third European Cup title.

Mohamed Salah is the favourite to score in the game, and we are also backing him as our prediction in this game.
