FC Porto 1-5 Liverpool Highlights

FC Porto 1-5 Liverpool Highlights

Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino scored a brace each as Liverpool made it successive wins to begin their Champions League campaign on another easy night in Porto.

Sadio Mane was also on target and Curtis Jones registered three assists as the six-time European Cup winners strolled to a dominant 5-1 romp against familiar opponents to stay at the summit of Group B, with Porto goalkeeper Diogo Costa enduring a nightmare of an evening.

Liverpool wore black armbands in tribute to the late Roger Hunt, Liverpool’s record league goalscorer and England 1966 World Cup winner whose death at the age of 83 was announced earlier on Tuesday.

James Milner started at right-back in place of Trent Alexander-Arnold, who Jurgen Klopp confirmed was a big doubt for Sunday’s Premier League showdown with Manchester City at Anfield due to a groin injury suffered in the wild 3-3 draw at Brentford that turned out to be more serious than first thought.

Porto made a bright start to proceedings as the speedy Luis Diaz and Mateus Uribe both saw efforts deflected, but they lost midfielder Otavio to an early injury – having also seen the vastly experienced Pepe limp out of the warm-up – and it did not take Liverpool long to assert their familiar dominance at the Estadio do Dragao following 5-0 and 4-1 victories there over recent years.
