Virgil Van Dijk: Liverpool still have work to do against Porto

Adjust Comment Print

Midfielder Naby Keita was the man who opened the scoring after just five minutes, his second goal with as many matches, after he notched for Liverpool against Southampton on Friday night.

Liverpool rarely threatened the Porto goal in the second half but with a two-goal advantage and no away goals conceded, Klopp will be pleased with the professional performance.

The Liverpool manager also offered an apology to Jordan Henderson, who impressed playing in the more advanced role that he prefers.

"We wanted to come out and score one or two more if we could, it wasn't the case and we didn't create much".

All three midfielders who started the game were so impressive that Klopp made a decision to leave Gini Wijnaldum on the bench.

Salah then had a goal bound shot blocked inadvertently by Henderson, before Marega twice passed up good opportunities - one saved by Alisson and the other blasted over.

"We didn't use the right wing anymore in the same way that we did in the first half".

Porto will surely display greater attacking intent in their backyard, where they have won all four of their European games this season, but Liverpool know an away goal will boost their qualifying chances.

In fact, there is just one player from the PFA 2017-18 list which makes our team, and this is City striker Sergio Aguero. However, the Egyptian scuffed his effort and it went wide.

"It was a bit stop start and we could have been better second half". The visitors had their moments in the first half but their approach eventually played into Liverpool's hands. With the confidence of having eliminated Bayern Munich in the round of 16, it carried over for Jurgen Klopp's men, who played freely, confidently and defended well in numbers against a team that was able to eliminate Roma last time out.

Against Manchester City and Roma last season and this year against Bayern Munich, Liverpool have not shied away from strong rivals and they can go up against any opponents in Europe.

"It was an important victory".

Neither of these teams can really afford to lose any more games if they are to achieve their respective goals of winning the Premier League and qualifying for the Champions League. The only two matches Liverpool lost at home during this period were in the League Cup and FA Cup. I would have bought it before the game and I will take it now. The goal was against the run of play.
