Liverpool vs Porto, Champions League

The Dutch centre-back said the one-club man was welcome to step into the home dressing room saying “Then he can see if I need to lose some weight!”

Mignolet has shared goalkeeper duties with Loris Karius this season, with the former having been first choice in the Premier League and the latter chosen to start in the Champions League.

But off the back of a comfortable 2-0 weekend win over the Saints, and with their Champions League clash with Porto coming up on Wednesday, Karius believes that the 26-year-old Dutch worldwide is starting to hit his stride. He made important saves from Cédric Soares and James Ward-Prowse.

The Reds face the Portuguese side tonight in the first leg of their Champions League as they look to succeed in the only competition which they can win this season.

"I don't know if Porto are going to be afraid but we are going to make their life hard and make them suffer", said Firmino, who has 20 goals for the season in all competitions.

Liverpool have not lost to Porto in four previous meetings, winning two games at home and drawing twice away while scoring seven goals but Klopp said his team's quest to take something back for next month's return leg will not be easy.

"I don't know if Porto is going to be afraid but we are going to make their life hard and make them suffer".

The Champions League clash game is available in most countries through the rights holders' online platform, if they have one.

Following the draws held in December, the tournament has some mouth-watering fixtures in store for us in the Round of 16. "I have had a lot of experience but it definitely helps when you play regularly instead of coming in and out of the team".

He believes his current crop possess sufficient quality to enjoy another memorable adventure and says it's down to him to get the best out of them.

"It's good to go to the next away game with a positive result and to feel strong".

If you're looking for slightly bigger prices, consider that no team scored more goals from set-pieces in the Group stages than Porto. With the hard test brings great opportunity, opportunity to gain an advantage in this last 16 tie and keep all Reds dreaming of more European glory.

The Senegal attacker is working in the shadows of the virtuoso front two of Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino but his importance to the team is still clear - the problem recently has just been that he is struggling once inside the box.

"We all know the quality [the attack has]", he added. "In hard situations you have to make the right decisions".

"We know that Anfield can be a real power so let's try to get the best result we can get".
