Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp APOLOGISES for handling of captain Jordan Henderson

Liverpool vs Porto: Lineups, How to Watch Champions League Online, US TV Channel, Live Stream

In what is Liverpool's hardest remaining Premier League game on paper, Jurgen Klopp's side meet Chelsea at Anfield on Sunday in the latest instalment of a gripping Premier League title race.

And after extending Liverpool's unbeaten European home record to 21 matches, winning 15, in a run stretching back to October 2014, the manager was satisfied with the advantage they take into the second leg.

The German indicated that his team need to be more disciplined at Estádio do Dragão if they are to reach the Champions League semi-finals, believing dead-ball situations to be one of Porto's best avenues of attack.

Keita's second goal in less than a week got the Reds up and running after just five minutes before Firmino added a simple second in the 26th minute. He won aerial battles in midfield, put in some crunching tackles and when Porto sat back in the second half, he did brilliantly to prevent the Portuguese side from hitting Liverpool on the counter. We lost a little bit of direction in the second half, but there's nothing to criticise.

Jordan Henderson, playing in a more advanced midfield position than normal, cut the visitors' defence open for the England worldwide to square for Firmino to tap into an empty net. It was pretty much clear, and we scored two wonderful goals.

But the central midfielder scored his first goal for the club against Southampton last Friday and has now followed that up in Europe.

In the same attack Alisson batted the ball against Alexander-Arnold when conceding a corner, and after surviving a VAR penalty review for a handball Liverpool were nearly undone from the resulting delivery as Marega again found space, but this time could not get enough contact on his twisting volley.

"Liverpool are getting away with it at the moment".

Porto only completed 67 percent of passes compared to Liverpool's 83 percent.

In addition, Henderson chipped a ball to Firmino for another first-half chance and curled in an excellent cross after the break, only for Sadio Mane to be ruled narrowly offside after volleying into the net.

"He stated: "[We gave away] probably a few too many set-pieces, because they are really good at that and you don't want to give too many of them away.

Liverpool, who were losing Champions League finalists past year, are top of the Premier League.

"We wanted to be as good as possible tonight, and 2-0 is a fantastic result, with the clean sheet, what more could we want?"
