Loris Karius will start for Liverpool in their last-16 Champions League clash against Porto on Wednesday night. Jurgen Klopp after failing to attain a single piece of silverware in his first year at charge of the Anfield club has blindly splashed the cash to revamp the squad at his disposal.

Their seven-game streak without a home league win is a joint club record and sees them remain in the relegation zone, one point away from 17th-placed Huddersfield.

With training, a lot of things can happen - it's always like this and that's the main reason. We are dreaming of scoring goals and not concede against them.

Porto haven't won the domestic title since 2012-13, but they are doing well this season and now sit at the top with a game in hand.

It was expected Mignolet would still have a spot in cup competitions, including the Champions League.

Although Philippe Coutinho, who weighed in with five goals in the group stage, has since moved to Barcelona, Salah in particular has stepped up his goalscoring, notching his 29th of the season in all competitions in the win over Southampton at the weekend.

Actually, to be more accurate, he put himself above an esteemed list of players - no player in Champions League history can match Kane's goal tally after nine matches.

And former Arsenal star Nicholas is backing the Reds to claim the initiative by taking a 2-1 lead back to Anfield for the return leg.

He added: "On one side, you can think "OK, first it's the away game and I think that'll be more hard and we can finish it at Anfield", but on the other side you can also say "OK, if we start at Anfield we can have a good start and then we can finish it in Portugal".

As the Liverpool Echo said: 'His leadership.and ability to keep his cool when the pressure is on is going to be key, it wrote. There are three or four players here more than we would have usually. The action can be also followed on Sonyliv.com and Sonliv mobile app.

Liverpool need an away goal against Porto and for that reason it might make sense to include an attacker like Woodburn on the bench rather than an extra midfielder or defender.
