  • 3 mind-blowing stats from Liverpool's Premier League season so far

Dismissed late in the then seemingly decisive 3-2 victory over Manchester City at Anfield in April, 2014, he was therefore suspended for the run-in, notably the infamous 2-0 home loss to Chelsea and the remarkable three-goal collapse at Crystal Palace. Liverpool will expect to score over in Portugal, so barring a rare defensive collapse, this should be enough. They had a couple of half-chances I think.

Porto did press and their best opportunity saw Alisson block Moussa Marega's shot. They certainly have the fire power to respond in the second leg, but in the meantime there are plenty of question to be answered about their approach to this one.

Jurgen Klopp's men were shoved off the summit of the log by Manchester City after they won against Cardiff City on Wednesday but the Reds will hope to reclaim the top spot when they meet Southampton on Friday. The Reds were comfortable for long stretches, but let the game slip away from them as the second half wore on. This time, it's Liverpool vs the mighty FC Porto, and fans are enchanting their favorite team names. James Milner played a lovely long ball out on the other wing to Sadio Mane, who dribbled past a couple of defenders before finding Firmino in the box, and the Brazil forward laid the ball off to the onrushing Keita on the edge of the area whose heavily deflected shot bamboozled Iker Casillas and went in to the back of the net.

Two of the alterations come in the backline, with Dejan Lovren getting a start at Anfield.

DF Virgil van Dijk, 7 - Typically composed and commanding.

Five things learned from Southampton 1-3 Liverpool
They scored a nice goal, not world-class defending but we stayed calm. "There's not many games left, any mistake can cost us". Liverpool returned to the summit of the Premier League after coming from behind to beat Southampton 3-1 on the south coast.

"We controlled the game for most of the time, but we gave a few too many set pieces away". Worth his weight in gold. Some of his passing was uncharacteristically sloppy, but overall, another good performance from a player who seems to have nailed down that No. 6 role.

It seems unbelievable that the Liverpool forward didn't even get booked for an bad, over the ball challenge.

Firmino doubled his side's lead, tapping home from close range after Trent Alexander-Arnold sent a low cross into the six-yard box.

Marco Silva is one of the many people who the Portuguese press has been interviewing ahead of Porto's clash against Liverpool for the Champions League.

Mohamed Salah had a big chance in the first half, however, he also squandered it. Not as impressive after the break, when some of his decision-making on the ball left a lot to be desired. Roberto Firmino will play down the middle.
