Porto with injury worries ahead of Champions League clash

The Spanish champions set to work at their Valdebebas training base in the capital

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.

Liverpool were one of four teams to remain unbeaten in this season's Champions League group stages, alongside Barcelona, Besiktas and Tottenham. The German keeper put on his best display for the club to keep Liverpool in the lead before they could grab the second goal.

"I'm going to do what I can to help [Salah] score goals and to help all the team".

The Cameroonian forward missed Porto's last league game against Chaves with a muscle problem, although the club have not given further details about the injury.

Liverpool are in the last 16 for the first time in nine years, and their European pedigree is such they are dark horses to go all the way.

"I am feeling good and getting consistent game time helps a lot", the 24-year-old is quoted as saying by The Telegraph.

"I don't know what other people think about Roberto Firmino - I can imagine a bit because you ask me about it - (but) people with a football brain judge him right".

As I mentioned, the link between Salah and Firmino is nearly telepathic and they are hard to stop. Everybody is aware of what they did to Leipzig and Monaco and the level of knowhow of this competition is huge at the Dragão.

"We are here in Porto, that's the only thing".

Although the Reds have been knocked out of both domestic cup competitions and Manchester City look to have the league title already locked up, leading the pack by 16 points, Jurgen Klopp's men are still able to compete for the coveted Champions League trophy.

But insisting his players are determined to bring a positive result back to Anfield, Klopp later told reporters: "We know Anfield is a place where the crowd can make the difference and that's what we will want to use in the second game but for that we need a result in the first game".

"We can make one mistake, that is how it is in life".

"It's not enough to say I don't like it, actually I hate to talk about the round after the actual round".

"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". They have been scoring very well and I think they will have huge confidence that they can go out and score in this tie.

"We will fight for everything tomorrow".

Jamie Carragher believes the current Liverpool side is better than the 2005 side that won the Champions League.
