"We should be confident" - Virgil van Dijk on Liverpool FC ‘double dreams’

Mohamed Salah then forced Casillas into a low save with a sharp shot on the turn, but the Egyptian should have done better in the 22nd minute when he placed the ball wide when through on goal, after being played in by a sloppy Porto pass.

Just five minutes later and it was two though, with skipper Jordan Henderson the architect of a brilliantly simple team goal.

"They had a lot, it was quite uncomfortable but we defended them well". With the confidence of having eliminated Bayern Munich in the round of 16, it carried over for Jurgen Klopp's men, who played freely, confidently and defended well in numbers against a team that was able to eliminate Roma last time out. I think the direction of the game is going to change.

Porto did create chances but striker Moussa Marega failed to maximise them meaning they left Anfield without what could have been an important away goal.

"We knew we had to play the second game and we can not decide the tie tonight, so now we have to go there and fight again", he added.

If Liverpool score in the away leg, Porto will have to net four to go through and Steve McManaman believes they'll be fully confident of doing just that.

"He likes that position so it is my fault he played for one-and-a-half years as the holding player, but we needed him there".




"Were we complacent? Maybe, but that may be natural when you have such a convincing victory and Liverpool have to treat this as a completely new challenge now". It's nothing to criticise but it was obvious, and 2-0 is still a good result.

"And I heard outside that he was a little bit ill". It was deflected, but it was a situation we wanted, the half-space we wanted to use.

"We'll give everything we've got then have a well-deserved break after".

"And we have to give it our all away at their stadium".

Liverpool had to survive a VAR review for a potential handball against Trent Alexander-Arnold. Together with Hendo there that was brilliant.

Klopp was keen to stress that he did not expect the tie to be settled at this stage and has warned his players to be prepared for an "intense atmosphere" at the Estadio do Dragao next Wednesday.

Up first for Liverpool, though, is a meeting with Chelsea on Sunday afternoon - a game that could prove vital in the Premier League title race. "Porto will try everything to strike back and that will be a really tough game again". "They must feel - the players, Jurgen, the fans - that they'll go there and score".
