Klopp: Liverpool Must Get Good Result At FC Porto

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes the Reds are capable of Champions League glory

Liverpool travel to FC Porto in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League last-16 tie looking to reach the quarter-finals for the first time since 2009.

Firmino, 26, has enjoyed a fine campaign, scoring 20 goals in all competitions this season.

The Reds are now in third place in the Premier League table as they chase a top four finish for the second season running under Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.

The onus is on the front three, though, to get crucial away goals. Bobby's got his 20th.

It will be interesting to see how Victor Moses, who was once linked with a move to Barca, fares against the Spanish table toppers, and whether the Blues can put their internal tumult to one side and see off Ernesto Valverde's side. From game to game, it'll always change, but they're the ones getting the chances, and luckily they're taking them.

France's Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian visited Iraq yesterday to discuss the country's reconstruction with Iraqi officials. Iraqi forces are backed by an worldwide coalition led by the United States , which pounds militant strongholds from the air.

James Milner is also pushing for a recall but I think Klopp may stick with Gini Wijnaldum and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain after they performed well during the 2-0 win at Southampton at the weekend. Everyone can make a difference.

We have had a few years of Spanish, German and Italian teams winning the biggest trophy of them all, but all the English teams left in the competition have the ability to beat anyone on their day. We are in Porto and that is the only thing.

Reports in the United Kingdom have suggested that the 24-year-old German will start the match, meaning former No. 1 Simon Mignolet's days may be numbered at Anfield.

When it was Klopp's turn to talk, Liverpool's against-the-odds Champions League triumph in 2005 was raised but the former Borussia Dortmund boss was in no mood to entertain any parallels being drawn.

Karius has been the favoured goalkeeper in the Champions League this season, with Mignolet only featuring in the two qualifiers against Hoffenheim.

Real Madrid vs PSG: Emery speaks on Neymar-Ronaldo swap deal
The ESPN FC panel discuss what's on the line for Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain in their Champions League tie. This seems consistent with reports that had Neymar feeling like he was living in Lionel Messi's shadow at Barca.

However, manager Klopp says that he is not ready to be part of the matchday 18. During this period, Liverpool won thrice and kept two clean sheets, reported Reuters.

He may have scored just twice since New Year, but after netting three in four group games, Mane could yet be one to watch during the knockout stages. "I don't know about it", he said.

"I'll ask Rafa [Benitez] but that would surprise me because it makes no sense". Systems are very important but only to bring players in their best positions.

Meanwhile, midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has warned his teammates against complacency against Porto, whose progress in the competition is expected to end at the hands of Liverpool. Porto's strong home form will prove to be a challenge for Liverpool, who will be a more balanced side now with van Dijk in the team.

The Holland global told Liverpoolfc.com: "The game will not be decided in one leg, it's over two legs".
