Liverpool are in a unique position heading into the second leg of their Champions League last 16 tie with FC Porto, because they can already begin to think about the quarter finals. As much as Jurgen Klopp will say his players must focus on Tuesday’s game, it is natural that everyone’s mind will wander a little because of the size of the mountain Porto have to climb. The Reds’ star trio, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, all scored to help them win 5-0 and, while over confidence is a recipe for disaster, Liverpool really shouldn’t be letting this lead slip to anyone, let alone a side that limped through the group stages at home.

Newcastle showed Porto just how to approach the early stages at Anfield, because Liverpool have blown so many teams away at home this season. The Portuguese league leaders will hope to suck the energy from the players and fans just as the Magpies did, but it is tough to see Porto avoiding the same eventual fate. Rafa Benitez was defeated on his return to Merseyside, because the hosts’ firepower proved too strong for his side’s organisation. In truth, it is hard to see anything other than a home win in this one.
Liverpool have scored 17 goals in their last six games, winning all of them, and their victory over Newcastle at the weekend temporarily took them second in the Premier League.
