Klopp asked. "He said we are the best team in the world? OK".

It is a timely boost for Liverpool with Dejan Lovren ruled out due to illness.

"If we were 2-0 down and going into the home leg, would we think we were out?"

Jordan Henderson came off with a knock in Sunday's 2-0 win over Chelsea but after the match, the Liverpool boss made it clear that his captain was fine which means the England worldwide will start in midfield alongside Fabinho.

For Liverpool, Jordan Henderson for sure.

"Pretty much all the rest are travelling", added the German.

"Ox [Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain] is not, it makes more sense for him to train here".

"But my players are not silly, they do not underestimate things like this". "Having a centre-half and number six o number eight back is massive for them".

The Porto manager Sérgio Conceição's belief that his side can mount a comeback and overturn the 2-0 first-leg defeat was mixed with glowing praise for his opponents, who, according to Conceição, have moments when they are "the best team in the world".

I feel like I'm going to wake up and God's going to say, 'Hey, remember how you were before all of this? Kotb said she and her longtime partner, Joel Schiffman , were there when the baby was born.

Liverpool have never lost a European match against Porto in seven previous encounters (W4 D3 L0), keeping three successive clean sheets against them.

"The season is not finished in this competition".

For FC Porto, Bruno Costa.

"We can compare it a little bit to the City game past year when we were 3-0 up and everybody thought, "halfway through" or whatever".

Liverpool FC haven't won the Champions League crown since 2005 when the Reds beat AC Milan on penalties.

The feel-good factor is as strong as ever around Liverpool as they continue their pursuit of a league and Champions League double.

Since the start of the 2017-18 tournament, Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino has both scored and assisted in five different Champions League matches, more than any other player in this time.

And they head into the Champions League contest in confident mood as they look to dump Porto out of the competition for the second year running and book their place in the semi-finals, where they would face Barcelona. Liverpool moved back into top spot with a 2-0 victory over Chelsea and Porto remain level with Benfica after a 3-0 win over Portimonense.
