Don't be fooled by 5-0 win a year ago, Klopp warns Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp laughs off ‘best team in the world’ tag from Porto counterpart

Jurgen Klopp laughs off ‘best team in the world’ tag from Porto counterpart

"From the first kick, they will go with a clear direction".

Similarly, the defence pretty much picks itself with Dejan Lovren absent. This year it's when we haven't played as well and we've had to grind it out and keep going to get that 90th-minute victor or dig out a clean sheet in tight games.

Klopp reacted with something like confusion when Conceicao's assessment was put to him.

"We can compare it a little bit to the City game past year when we were 3-0 up and everybody thought, "halfway through" or whatever".

Oxlade-Chamberlain is closing in on a return to senior football after a year out with a knee injury.

For Liverpool, Jordan Henderson for sure. "But my players aren't silly, they don't misunderstand this". "Having a centre-half and number six o number eight back is massive for them". He's been asked to do a job for the team and we know he'll do anything he's asked - whether he's asked to play in goal, he'll do that. But with the two sides heading to Portugal for the second leg, the tie is far from over.

Milner, 33, also cooled comparisons with Liverpool's Champions League-winning side of 2005, urging the current group to prove they are the best by securing silverware.

Following protracted efforts to purchase an air defense system from the US with no success, Ankara decided in 2017 to purchase Russia's system.

Fourteen months ago Sadio Mane's hat-trick helped Liverpool to a rout in the first leg of their last-16 clash against Porto, but Klopp dismissed the importance of what he called a "strange" match when it came to planning for Wednesday night.

He added: "In the Champions League I think they have an advantage but with the ability we have as players and as a squad, I'm very confident".

In fact, Liverpool FC are unbeaten in three visits to FC Porto in the Champions League following stalemates in 2001 and 2003. Both have the energy and industry to boss a game of this type, and would allow Klopp the chance to rest both Keita and Henderson, the latter of whom picked up a knock last weekend.

Since the start of last season, Liverpool have won three of their four away Champions League knockout games, only losing to Roma in last season's semi-final (4-2). That, however, has not stopped Jurgen Klopp reinforcing the message that nothing has been decided. This year, it's when we haven't played as well as we would have liked and we've had to grind it out and we've had to keep going until the 90th minute to get a victor.

The Reds will make the trip to Portugal looking to avoid any major mishaps following their 2-0 victory over FC Porto in the first leg last week.
