Son guides Spurs past City, Liverpool blank Porto

Son guides Spurs past City, Liverpool blank Porto

"But nobody wanted Liverpool as well by the way".

"This game takes me back to my days as a player and our two matches against CSKA Sofia and they serve as a warning for Liverpool now", Virgin Media Sport pundit Souness told us.

And Naby Keita displayed the sort of energised performance that prompted Liverpool to spend £52 million on him. The Guinea-born midfielder scored an early opener, won six of his eight tackles in the first half and was weaving his way into the box in injury time at the end of the game.

"It's such a good time".

"Klopp has made Liverpool a desirable destination again".

He couldn't, however, entirely make up for a odd Liverpool performance.

It took just five minutes for Liverpool to surge in front at Anfield, with Roberto Firmino setting up Naby Keita to shoot just inside the penalty area.

The Reds are two points ahead of Manchester City at the top of table, although Pep Guardiola's side have a game in hand. It isn't that long ago that just being at that stage would have been an achievement for Liverpool.




Under Klopp, Liverpool's support also appears to have returned to special levels.

The Premier League title race is by no means over. "Pressure will never help us, so why should we make pressure for ourselves?" "The fans, the players, it's everything [together]".

"Were we complacent? Maybe, but that may be natural when you have such a convincing victory and Liverpool have to treat this as a completely new challenge now".

While FC Porto have been playing very well since their last Champions League match but I don't think they are good enough to win this match. Klopp himself has grown as a head coach and a person.

Tottenham were the big winners of the first slate of Champions League quarterfinal games on Tuesday, but their hopes of going through may hinge on the fitness of Harry Kane.

In the Europa League Arsenal's fixture with Napoli has a combined revenue of €622 million, greater than the two other fixtures in the Champions League quarter-finals, Liverpool versus Porto (€619.5m) and Juventus versus Ajax (€486.8m). The Guinea global has shown brief flashes of his vast talent, but not enough to justify a regular starting spot.

"People around said so many things, "you want Porto", they only look at numbers and names, stuff like that".

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.
