FC Porto: Liverpool must be wary of Dragon's roar

Keylor Navas attempts to make a save from back-up striker Borja Mayoral

Jurgen Klopp feels his Liverpool side could beat Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius believes his consistent presence in the starting line-up during recent Premier League games has spurred his resurgence. Bobby's got his 20th.

It will be interesting to see how Victor Moses, who was once linked with a move to Barca, fares against the Spanish table toppers, and whether the Blues can put their internal tumult to one side and see off Ernesto Valverde's side.

He may have scored just twice since New Year, but after netting three in four group games, Mane could yet be one to watch during the knockout stages. Throwing your heart on the pitch giving everything you have. But because Liverpool's best is very good and, when they display it, the finest teams can struggle to contain them.

The Reds have been inconsistent at best in defence this season, but they have managed two clean sheets in their last three outings and appear to be turning the corner. Everyone can make a difference.

"We qualified for the Champions League without Phil, he was not involved in either of the Hoffenheim games".

We've been awful for 18 months and I am not alone in believing we'll might get relegated this season, but that result at the Hawthorns may have given us hope. We defend high and he needs to get used to Dejan (Lovren) and Joel (Matip).

Joe Gomez will be assessed tomorrow ahead of the game after recovering from injury but Klopp has hinted the youngster will be available. Jurgen Klopp had employed a rotation system between Karius and Simon Mignolet, with the former serving primarily in cup and European matches.

Porto's leading scorer Vincent Aboubakar is doubtful for their Champions League match at home to Liverpool, coach Sergio Conceicao said on Tuesday.

In the first half of the season, Mignolet was handed mostly EPL duties, while Karius took his place in European games. I saw him this morning, he looked good as well. "I have not made the final decision, but it is..."

He netted five of the team's 15 goals in the group stage of the Champions League.

Porto will be without holding midfielder Danilo Pereira. The memory of last season's spectacular capitulation in the Nou Camp, when PSG squandered a 4-0 first leg lead and were hammered 6-1 by a rampant Barcelona, will be painfully fresh in their minds.
