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

A sweeping counter-attack brought Liverpool the opening goal inside the first five minutes, with Naby Keita's deflected effort finding the top corner after great work from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino to set up the opportunity.

He has scored 17 Premier League goals after 31 matches this campaign as the Anfield side are hoping to end their EPL trophy drought at the end of this term.

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.

He got some luck with his goal, his 16-yard strike wrong-footing Iker Casillas after a heavy deflection off Oliver Torres, but the sight of a Liverpool midfielder there, on the edge of the box to get a shot away, was a welcome one.

Liverpool host Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday before going to Porto for the second leg next Wednesday.

Roberto Firmino then doubled that advantage before the half-hour mark as Liverpool cruised to a comfortable victory that leaves them on course for a second consecutive semi-final, crucially avoiding conceding an away goal in the process. 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. "In the last game he got better and better and better every minute, so we wanted to build on that".

"We didn't really create that much and it was a bit stop-start".

Depay has also been superb for his country's national team - scoring 16 goals and 12 assists from 46 worldwide appearances. There were gaps which Porto's players will feel they could and should have exploited. In stoppage time, with Liverpool looking worn out after their efforts throughout the game, it was Keita still charging forward, bursting past a couple of opponents into the box.

The match begins at 3 p.m. ET and can be seen on U.S. television on Univision Deportes and UniMas.

"Hendo is a brilliant player", Klopp said.

"He likes the position obviously", smiled Klopp. Keita, we know, has an eye for goal, and his presence should give Klopp's side an extra dimension.

If you live in the regions of Europe and especially the United Kingdom, you can use BT Sports 3 to watch the entire Liverpool vs FC Porto match online.

So far have Liverpool come in the past year that a trickle of fans in red were still casually taking their seats with seconds to go before kick-off.
