Keita was lively throughout the game as he played a number of excellent passes and was involved in the buildup to Firminho's goal.

Just five minutes later and it was two though, with skipper Jordan Henderson the architect of a brilliantly simple team goal.

"We still have a lot of work to do".

But he followed up an encouraging display last Friday against Southampton, in which he opened his goal-scoring account for Liverpool, by making an impression against the Portuguese champions. I think the direction of the game is going to change.

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. Although they couldn't score in the second half, they prevented Liverpool from increasing the 2-0 margin which gives them a good chance to turn the tie around in the second leg.

"We didn't use the right wing anymore in the same way that we did in the first half".

No single party in Israel has ever won a majority of seats in parliament; the country has always had coalition governments. Both moves delighted Israel, infuriated Palestinian and Arab leaders, and were opposed by most USA allies.

The result could have been very different, though. The problem was a little bit that in the second-half we gave a few counter-attacks away, then we had to control it a bit more. Porto will try everything to strike back - and that will be a really tough game again, but that's how it should be in the quarter-finals.

He continued: "So until they start playing convincing, dominant football, which they haven't done with the exception of the Bayern Munich game, this year, I don't see them as having an easy ride to anything".

It has been a stop-start first season for the Guinea worldwide, but it looks like he is finding his feet at just the right time. However, he will have to be content with a 2-0 win after his players threw away some good opportunities to put the tie out of sight. "We played a competent match, we could have got a different result, we could have left Anfield with a goal". When we didn't push up in the last line, they chipped the ball in-behind, and the striker was not alone in front of the goal but he had a promising situation at least. Together with Hendo there that was brilliant.

"But the only thing is that we go in there to play our game, so hopefully we will create chances and finish them off".

Last season, when Liverpool played Porto in the Champions League Round of 16, the Reds won the first leg in Portugal 5-0 and it enabled them to rest several key players for the second leg.
