Don't be fooled by 5-0 win previous year, Klopp warns Liverpool

Liverpool face Porto tonight in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tonight, a game which Mane is surely set to feature and play a decisive role in.

"I saw that we are capable of damaging Liverpool", Herrera said of his view from the stand at Anfield.

However, Klopp will be boosted by the return of Lallana, who has missed the last three games with a muscle strain, and Henderson, who was forced off in Sunday's win over Chelsea with an ankle knock. The two teams met at Anfield on April 9, with Naby Keita and Roberto Firmino scoring the goals in the first half in a display that the Reds could have won by more.

"His fitness levels are getting better and better", he said. "If you feel not well and had a bad night, we all know an intense game the day after doesn't exactly sound like the thing you should do".

"But to be that you have to win trophies, and that's something we haven't done yet and what we're trying to do this season".

Liverpool travel to Porto for the second time in two seasons, having blown the Portuguese champions away in the round of 16 past year, but both Klopp and Milner placed little significance on that 5-0 victory.

"Porto are a really, really good football team". "Until we were 2-0 up it was a really open game". We will have to play at our limit, 100 per cent, and not try to (just) come through somehow because then you cannot stand the power they can create here.

Klopp has Alisson in goal, while at the back he trusts in a centre-back pairing between Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip. Get one, and this tie is probably over.

Dejan Lovren has not travelled with the Liverpool squad but Klopp confirmed Joe Gomez will be fit to feature from the bench, having not played for the first team since suffering a leg fracture in December. "If he can start and play 90 minutes in the Champions League I don't know, but can he come on when he is needed? Yes".
