Jordan Henderson allowed to show attacking skills again, says Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool Jurgen Klopp Jordan Henderson

The Reds - who beat the same opponents 5-0 on aggregate in the round-of-16 last season - looked like they could be on course for a similar rout when Naby Keita gave them the lead after only five minutes. It's nothing to criticise but it was obvious, and 2-0 is still a good result.

It's worth acknowledging that Heung-min Son, who has arguably been Tottenham's best player this season, scored the victor after Kane left the pitch, but it's also worth acknowledging Kane was replaced by Lucas Moura.

MF Jordan Henderson, 8 - Terrific ball to release Alexander-Arnold in the buildup to the second goal and also set up Firmino for a good opportunity that he couldn't take.

Therefore, let's take a leap ahead and uncover some of the best channels and services to watch Liverpool vs FC Porto online.

"I think Liverpool at Anfield are so strong, so in control, I can't see any team in Europe coming here and dominating that". Keita took a touch and fired past Iker Casillas, his strike aided by a deflection from Oliver Torres' sliding challenge.

And, while Klopp would argue that the creativity instead comes from the full-backs - evidenced by another assist for young Alexander-Arnold here - Liverpool's lack of goals from midfield is nevertheless a weakness.

Sadio Mane had an effort ruled out for offside three minutes after the interval, but apart from another Marega effort in the 69th minute there were few clear-cut chances in the second half.

"Porto aren't a bad side, we know that, they're in the quarter final but you'd expect Liverpool to come through that".

"We have good memories of beating them by a large margin [but] that was past year". It's a lovely, lovely team goal. It was pretty much clear, and we scored two wonderful goals.

Porto: Tough task. A draw, especially one with goals, will feel like a win. In stoppage time, with Liverpool looking worn out after their efforts throughout the game, it was Keita still charging forward, bursting past a couple of opponents into the box.

"Hendo is a brilliant player". Rather, it is a role to which he was not particularly suited but one that he was prepared to fill because Jurgen Klopp needed him to.

"He likes the position obviously", smiled Klopp. It wasn't as conclusive as previous year, but it will be hard for Porto to overturn a 2-0 deficit in the second leg, you feel.

FC Porto won their previous match as they Boavista at home.

Liverpool were linked with Depay before his move to United in 2015 only for their rivals to put in a £30million bid for the then PSV Eindhoven player.
