Jurgen Klopp has promised his Liverpool players will not underestimate Porto in Wednesday night's second leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

My father told me when I was younger "whatever people will say in the future Pele is the best".

"But my players are not silly, they do not underestimate things like this". "To be that, you have to win trophies, and that's something..."

Virgil Van Dijk will start in central defence and given that Klopp has chosen to rotate Matip and Lovren as the Dutchman's partner, it should be Dejan Lovren who will play vs Porto since Joel Matip started during the 2-0 win vs Chelsea. "What we do tomorrow we show on the pitch, not at the press conference", Klopp said with a wry smile.

"We can compare it a little bit to the City game a year ago when we were 3-0 up and everybody thought, "halfway through" or whatever. It's not easy, we know that, but we should not think about anything else".

"Porto have won all their home games (in the Champions League) so far, we know they are really dominating in the home games". "We have to play at our limit, and try to come through somehow".

Apple is also reportedly offering developers extra incentives if they agree to make their games temporarily exclusive to Arcade . Instead, users can play games with their existing laptops, desktops, TVs, tablets or phones and use their own keyboard or mouse.

The likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino appeared in very high spirits as they adapted to their new environment on Tuesday.

We played Roma and they can be an uncomfortable opponent but I didn't really see a chance for them when they played Porto (in the last 16).

Joel Matip will nearly certainlyalmost partner Virgil van Dijk in the heart of the Liverpool defence on Wednesday.

Centre-back Lovren started in the 2-0 victory in the first leg but misses the trip to Portugal with illness, although Joe Gomez is available after recovering from a leg fracture sustained in December.

"Can he play 90 minutes in a Champions League game?" said Klopp, of Gomez.

"Having a player with the quality of Joe, remember the season he played before he got injured - that was incredible, so we're really happy he's back".
