Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to pan Alberto Moreno for his performance in their team's 0-0 Champions League draw against Porto at Anfield on Tuesday night.

"The next round will be hard, seven other very good teams, maybe four of them are from England, which doesn't make it easier".

"Now we thought we give him, if possible, the last 20".

With the Champions berth secured, Liverpool coach Jrgen Klopp made a decision to rest several starters ahead of Saturday's English Premier League showdown with Manchester United, reports Efe.

Although Casillas will now be fully focused on helping Porto secure their first Primeira Liga title since the 2012-13 season (they are five points clear of Benfica after 25 games), his time in Portugal is coming to a close.

Their attention will now turn to a crucial Premier League clash against Manchester United on Saturday.

Stephen Hawking: 'There Was Nothing Around Before the Big Bang'
Some scientists believe the Big Bang is part of an infinite loop of expansion and contraction cycles of the universe. Famous physicist Stephen Hawking says that he has the answer on what was out there before The Big Bang .

Salah drew a routine save out of Casillas two minutes later with an angled strike from Moreno's ball over the top, before Lovren came to Karius' rescue with a goalline clearance to keep out Oliver Torres from 12 yards. "I'm looking forward to it", Klopp said.

The 5-0 rout from the away leg had all but put his team into the quater-finals and no one seriously expected much of a game at Anfield. "But I don't think earlier - we had this year for the first time the opportunity to do it and now we are in, so I think we are in time". But while Tuesday's game didn't exactly showcase a clear-cut Plan B, it did show that Liverpool at least have a Plan A lite, where they rein in their pressing and manage a game rather than going all-out.

Real Madrid and Liverpool are the first two sides to have qualified after the La Liga outfit beat PSG 2-1 last night in Paris to win 5-2 on aggregate.

"We will prepare ourselves for the game and we want to win the second half of the tie".

"At this stage of the tournament you need to have that belief you can go on and win it", said Milner of Liverpool's Champions League chances. If it is 15 he trains again on Wednesday.
