After that, the away side took control of the game. 'Thank god I have a few more nights to think about that, ' he said.

A 4-1 win at Porto might sound like the sort of freewheeling performance they specialised in a season ago, but it was nothing of the sort, especially in the first half.

But Liverpool countered that by playing ugly.

The reds, despite their 2-0 lead, didn't look their usual calm selves but all that changed in the 25th minute with Liverpool's first attack of the game. Assisted the Mane goal in the first half, scored himself in the second half to kill the tie.

"Of course I want to be a legend not only for Liverpool but also in the Premier League story", Mane said, when asked about his future at the club before the Porto game. The boys did that and a big difference to the past is that it doesn't cost us confidence, if we have to do it then we do it. "If we have to do it, we do it".

Klopp smiled at the thought of having to halt Messi.

This was the crucial part of the game.

The hosts missed several good chances before a simple passing move saw Salah play a chipped ball into the six-yard box, where Mane slid in to score a goal that was initially ruled out for offside before a VAR consultation overturned the decision. "No way. That's exactly what Porto are thinking", Klopp added.

"We are more experienced, that is clear", he declared.

On whether Liverpool can overcome Barcelona.

"Tonight it was the other way around, they made our life hard".

On whether progressing in the manner in which they did will have benefits for Liverpool...

Another change has been made by manager Jurgen Klopp in the midfield, with James Milner getting a start in place of Naby Keita, who was one of the goalscorers in the first leg at Anfield. I'm looking forward to it. Everybody has tried that but so far nobody can do it. "It's not easy, we know that, but we should not think about anything else".

"We have time for that".

"But my players are not silly, they do not underestimate things like this".

Liverpool travel to Porto for the second time in two seasons, having blown the Portuguese champions away in the round of 16 past year, but both Klopp and Milner placed little significance on that 5-0 victory. If they can beat Barcelona, more people might agree with him.
