Klopp: Liverpool must 'fight again' after Porto win

Liverpool vs Porto: Lineups, How to Watch Champions League Online, US TV Channel, Live Stream

The Portuguese side fought well to stay in the game in a scrappy second half to give themselves a chance of a comeback at home in next week's second leg.

There remains plenty of work to do for the Premier League leader, who will be disappointed it was unable to gain a bigger advantage for next week's second leg.

He slipped in an inch-perfect ball between Porto's left-back and centre-back, Alexander-Arnold crossed for Firmino, who passed the ball across the face of goal for Firmino who could not miss.

Owen was impressed with the manner of Liverpool's display and does not believe there is a team in Europe who would beat them at Anfield now.

"It was a bit stop start and we could have been better second half".

Mane also came close with a curling effort which drifted narrowly wide at the other end, but Liverpool's main focus for much of the second half appeared to be keeping their clean sheet intact and they comfortably saw out the win without shipping what could have been a damaging away goal.

Henderson has often played in a defensive midfield role for Klopp but, with Brazilian Fabinho taking up that responsibility, he is now able to push into advanced areas.

Trump was so frustrated about the increase that he announced he would cut off USA aid to Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. Trump said that US Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan will be acting secretary.

On a bitterly cold night at Anfield, Liverpool was well below its best and Porto deserve credit for a determined performance after going two goals down in 26 minutes.

"We didn't use the right wing anymore in the same way that we did in the first half".

But the central midfielder scored his first goal for the club against Southampton last Friday and has now followed that up in Europe.

There was another fortunate moment for the home side when a nasty-looking over-the-top challenge on Danilo from Mo Salah went unpunished, despite the Liverpool man missing the ball and connecting half-way up the Porto defender's shin.

Five Manchester City players featured in the XI as they stormed to the Premier League title with 100 points, while Mohamed Salah was the sole Liverpool representative after a record-breaking first season at Anfield. Porto must be sick of the sight of Liverpool in the Champions League.

"He stated: "[We gave away] probably a few too many set-pieces, because they are really good at that and you don't want to give too many of them away. "It will be a really intense atmosphere there, and we have to be ready for that, but I'm pretty sure we are".

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.
