Klopp warns Liverpool: It won't be easy beating 'big club' Porto

Klopp warns Liverpool: It won't be easy beating 'big club' Porto

"We deserved a better result".

Time and time again, they have been exposed by their inability to see out a game and secure a win - particularly in this competition's group stages.

Brazilian left-back Marcelo wrapped up the victory minutes after Ronaldo's tap-in with a goal created by Marco Asensio.

Goalkeeper Jose Sa's throw out in attempt of a quick restart was intercepted by Dejan Lovren, who pushed up into a midfield position as he sensed an opportunity.

FC Porto said they'd "blunt" Liverpool's attack in the first leg of their Round of 16 clash at the Estadio do Dragao, but the Portuguese side can all but kiss the Champions League good-bye for another season as the Reds ran riot on the Iberian Peninsula.

Liverpool put one foot, well their entire lower body, into the next round of the Champions League this evening with a thumping win over Porto away from home. "In this game it was possible, usually it's not that easy", said the German. Liverpool, England's most successful club, would like a sixth to move them ahead of Barcelona and Bayern and take third place in their own right again behind Milan and Real Madrid.

PSG had a precious away goal, but they could not hold their lead until the break as Giovani Lo Celso gave away a penalty for a foul on Toni Kroos. But it's of course very important for us. Striker Vincent Aboubakar was also out with a muscle problem. Though he isn't completely match-fit, expect him to play an hour or so before being taken off as Liverpool will want to take the game to Porto in the opening half.

Five minutes later it was Salah's turn, as the Egyptian produced some outrageous skill to round the keeper and double the lead following James Milner's post rattling curler.

It was the African player of the year's sixth goal in the competition, and his ninth in eight games across all competitions. The Senegal striker needed no second invitation for his second goal.

Milner then set up Firmino to score the fourth in the 69th minute and Mane drilled in the final goal with five minutes remaining to complete the rout.

"We are sad, no one is more disappointed than us", he told Sport TV. "I enjoyed the fifth goal the most".

The star of the show for the Reds was Sadio Mane, who scored a hat-trick in Portugal.
