Jamie Carragher makes massive claim about this current Liverpool side

Porto's coach Sergio Conceicao

The conundrum for all managers of leading Portuguese clubs is adopting a formula of play which can control domestic matches against inferior opposition yet be able to adapt to the rigours of European football. But Klopp confirmed last month, and following Liverpool's 4-3 win against Manchester City, that Karius was his official No 1.

What can Porto expect? But Liverpool also have a young Brit in Danny Ward, who is struggling to get into the first team.

"Because they are experienced, physical and good footballers with a good plan".

The-21-year-old has completed the most tackles per 90 minutes in the Premier League this season. "It is not about who we play it is about how we play and what we do".

The dynamic duo of Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah will be the key men again upfront, while Sadio Mane will look to rediscover his best form having gone through an extended spell of poor form.

"We are looking at Liverpool's strong and weak points".

It seems likely that James Milner will also be added to the mix.

Porto have not beaten Liverpool in four previous meetings although their overall home record against English clubs is won eight, drawn six and lost three with already-qualified Leicester defeated 5-0 in last season's group stage.

Formation and playing style - what system do Liverpool usually play?

Gerard Houllier's Liverpool FC side beat Porto over two legs in the Uefa Cup quarter-finals after Danny Murphy and Michael Owen scored in a 2-0 win at Anfield to secure an aggregate victory.

According to BT Sport, Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard believes that new Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk will prove his class against Porto in the Champions League. "I am trying to give my maximum for the team and trying to be alongside these great players in Europe".

What time does the Porto v Liverpool game start?

"I think Porto's also going to be hard". Everybody is aware of what they did to Leipzig and Monaco and the level of knowhow of this competition is huge at the Dragão.

He said that a good result on Wednesday would be "a win without conceding a goal".

Genuinely, it's tough to call. "I don't know yet if he'll be available on Wednesday, but I think he has a chance", explained the the gaffer, keeping his cards close to his chest. But he went some way to restoring his reputation during last year's Champions League semi-final, scoring two goals in the first leg, and then he took to the pitch on Tuesday and played like a man possessed in staking Juventus to a two-goal lead.
