Klopp pinpoints the one victory that underlines his belief in Liverpool

Liverpool have gone undefeated in their last 10 UEFA Champions League ties.

Firmino has unrivalled potential as an attacker when it comes to penetrating the opposition defences and scoring goals for his side but he has never been adjudged with the credit that he deserves.

Apart from Salah and Firmino, Karius is also the subject of a hot debate ahead of the Porto game.

The Englishman has returned to full training, although the game has come too soon for him.

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

James Milner is also pushing for a recall but I think Klopp may stick with Gini Wijnaldum and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain after they performed well during the 2-0 win at Southampton at the weekend. But Karius has started six of Liverpool's last seven games, with Mignolet left to handle last month's FA Cup loss to West Brom, leading to suggestions they had swapped roles.

Manchester United Shocked in 1-0 Upset by Matt Ritchie, Newcastle United
Newcastle should have been awarded a penalty moments later though after a very clumsy challenge by Chris Smalling on Gayle. They're now up to 13th in the table with a little bit more breathing room.

"To be honest I have not made the final decision but it is not the same situation as it was", Klopp said when asked which goalkeeper he would pick to face Porto. The Cameroon global is their top scorer this season with 26 goals across all competitions and would be sorely missed against the five-time Champions League winners. He has taken a more central role at the club since Coutinho's departure and has earned the backing of his manager to get the goals. They are an entertaining side on the road and have both scored and conceded more goals away than at home. "We've shown this season that we can beat the big teams and we need to maintain this momentum". Adding that, "but I only focus on playing a good game".

Aboubakar, who has returned to Porto after spending last season on loan at Besiktas, has scored 26 goals in all competitions this season, including 15 in the league and five in the Champions League group stage.

"That's football", said Klopp. That's how it is.

"If you watch us we don't always play the same system so maybe we can surprise each other. As often as he can be, that's good", opined Klopp.

The dazzling attacking play of Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, along with a relatively favourable draw against the Portuguese champions, has led to Liverpool being tipped as dark horses to become kings of Europe for a sixth time in their history.
