Liverpool head to Portugal to face FC Porto in their second Champions League group stage fixture of the season. The Reds beat AC Milan last time out, while their hosts this evening held Atletico Madrid to a goalless draw, the first of no doubt several intriguing results in what will be a very tight group.

Jurgen Klopp’s side remain unbeaten in all competitions this term and are top of the Premier League, a point clear after six games – and face reigning champions Manchester City at the weekend. Before that, though, they’ll want to get the job done on the European scene and put themselves in a strong position in Group B, which means trying to take all three points at the Estadio do Dragao.

The Reds’ boss is unconcerned by his team’s defending despite conceding three to Brentford in an enthralling draw at the weekend, though noted an improvement was required on Tuesday night:

“It’s not that much of a concern because I don’t think you should make these things bigger than they are – but we have to show a reaction, that’s for sure. It’s really tricky to win a football game when you are not defending on your highest level and that’s what we didn’t do. We spoke about it and we know we cannot do it like that. I think we have sorted it but we have to show it tomorrow.”

90+3 mins: That’s it. Liverpool batter Porto at the Estadio do Dragao. Their big three were all on the scoresheet as Mo Salah netted twice and Sadio Mane scored against Porto again. Roberto Firmino came off the bench and took advantage of poor defending to pop the ball in the back of the net twice but the star performer was Curtis Jones. He played a little higher and went after the hosts setting up four of the five goals and almost scoring himself.

GOAL! Porto 1 – 4 Liverpool (Firmino, 77’)⚽️

77 mins: No it’s not. Liverpool have been gifted at least three of their four games by shocking play from goalkeeper Diogo Costa. This time Curtis Jones plays a hopeful long ball up to Roberto Firmino who has Fabio Cardoso to deal with. For some inexplicable reason Diogo Costa comes flying out of his box to try and get to the ball. He’s nowhere near it as Firmino wins the ball. He sees the goalkeeper off the line and knocks it past him. Costa sprints back and dives to try and sweep it away but the ball crosses the goalline and Firmino has a goal!

GOAL! Porto 1 – 3 Liverpool (Taremi, 75’)⚽️

75 mins: Porto have one back! Gomez fails to properly deal with a cross from Corona and his header comes to Fabio Vieira. He twists and weaves his way into space before curling a nice cross into box. Taremi squeezes his way in front of Gomez and throws himself at the ball. He gets a strong head to the cross and leaves Alisson no chance to stop it. Is the comeback on?
