"We hoped it would be like this because last game he got better and better, minute by minute, so we wanted to build on it".

Manchester City are two points behind them right now, but the champions can reclaim top spot by winning their game-in-hand.

City are in action before Liverpool on Sunday at Selhurst Park, where they face Crystal Palace.

Pep Guardiola's need to tinker with his tactics when playing away in the Champions League backfired again, while Liverpool could only manage to put two goals past Porto.

Georginio Wijnaldum dropped to the bench for the visit of the Portuguese side but could also return to play against Maurizio Sarri's men.

If they keep Liverpool from scoring more than two goals and get an away goal themselves, things might get really interesting.

"It was a bit stop start and we could have been better second half". It will be a tough game but that is what you expect in the quarter-finals of Champions League.

The skipper, Jordan Henderson, played in a more advanced midfield role as Fabinho sat back to protect the backline and thrived in the role.

"In Porto we finished them off, tonight we didn't", the Liverpool manager said.

In the same attack Alisson batted the ball against Alexander-Arnold when conceding a corner, and after surviving a VAR penalty review for a handball Liverpool were nearly undone from the resulting delivery as Marega again found space, but this time could not get enough contact on his twisting volley. He opened up play with a few exquisite through balls and it was one such through ball to Trent Alexander-Arnold which led to Roberto Firmino's second goal.

Porto were keen to get on the front foot early and nearly hit Liverpool with a hammer blow inside two minutes when the in-form Moussa Marega found space inside the area, but he could not wrap his foot around the ball and ended up firing comfortably wide of the target.

"He obviously likes the position, so it's my fault that he has played for one-and-a-half years as a No 6", he added.

Liverpool came out firing immediately after the break and thought they had a third when Mane found the back of the net after taking down an inch-perfect Henderson pass, only to be flagged offside.

Jurgen Klopp's team made the most of home advantage, as they recorded a 2-0 victory at Anfield to give them a strong lead on aggregate.

Think we know nothing and want to pit your wits against the Football JOE group?

Porto though showed it was not about to roll over - the unsafe Marega had a low drive well saved by the legs of Liverpool keeper Alisson Becker.

"Overall it was a really good performance". "We were still around the box and all that stuff, but for defending the counter-attacks we had to work really hard, and that costs you a little bit of rhythm".
