Given the current positions then second third fourth and fifth are all available also the teams filling those are all big clubs

Arsenal who are behind but capable and usually do finish a season well could yet put pressure on the group above but will need assistance possibly from the above teams

As they all have to play a number of the top six around them whilst victory in those games would be a real bonus and momentum changer it's the game after that will shape the table as winning one of those games then losing the next will nullify any points advantage as these teams don't often lose back to back games

It's like breaking serve in tennis then failing to hold your own serve I would say Chelsea have the harder fixtures I think Spurs possibly the best

All teams continued participation in cl will also play a part and any other added fixtures may impinge be interesting to see who fills what positions and who can keep key players fit as well as maybe unearth a unlikely hero

Have seen Porto in 2 of their group games and they’re dangerous going forward, don’t know if it will be a game where both teams go toe to toe, but will be a cracker if it is. Or maybe we’ll play it a bit tighter with view to 2nd leg. I’d like us to go for it tonight, we’re more reliable on the road.

Not actually seen them play but read they are only unbeaten team in all comps in Europe so if that's they are obviously used to winning games and must be consistent at a level

Think we came through a weak group probably only united group weaker should be interesting game

Have to say expected more from them. Our mid 3 have worked very well to cut out a lot of their play before it's allowed to get going, need the energy to hold up. Would think Milner may be the first to flag and any sign of this need a sub straight away.

Can definitely see the threat if our energy were to drop like we have seen before in the 2nd half.

At the other end we were 1 sloppy ball away from another 4 or 5 big chances!

Would be nice to keep the same sort of possession, no foolish risks from here, chances must present themselves as they push on more.

Let's hope we can keep it going with some sensible game management.

No negatives there tonight.

Did a proper job on them, Trent for his years excellent in a game like that, Robbo on the other side very composed. Everyone worked their socks off to stop them playing and the usual suspects in the goals yet again.

Thank god Mane finally gets the roll his way, If that doesn't boost him now nothing will, having him back on song would make a big difference to us on the run in.

10 days off but these players must be fully wired after this break, we have thrown in the odd clanger from this scenario before after a great performance and a bit of time off, can't afford any slips v the hammers on our return to action.

Milner must have broke the WR for annoying clumsy fouls without seeing a card Laugh

Good Stuff, chuffed.

Now that VVD is settled in,it's going to take a good team to beat us. Some of his long passes were Gerrardesque. Having Henderson back has made a big difference.
Report PorcupineorPineapple February 14, 2018 10:01 PM GMT
Thought for both full backs it was a significant game. Robertson has been very good and has had the place because of good performances. I think tonight might have transcended that: tonight he officially became first choice. Trent showed he's not just an attacking full back. Complete performance tonight. Did both sides brilliantly.

Also, Milner'' best showing at centre mid? Thought the whole midfield was excellent but he was brilliant.

Lastly, the whole team. We're seeing a team who completely get and trust their tactics and carry them out. They see Klopp gets it and do their job knowing it's the right thing to do.


Of maybe we just played another poor team...

Well that was a most pleasant evening Grin

Where do you even start? Every single player was superb. Was most impressed with the balance of the midfield. Hendo is making a real difference now he's back and thought we looked better without Can. More disciplined and harder working. Not many superlatives left for Bobby and Salah, and great to see Mane back to something like his best. Fingers crossed he's peaking at the right time. Philippe who?! Even the back five looked excellent. TAA is improving all the time, Robbo was superb and VVD just makes everything look easy. Karius might even turn out to be a decent goalie yet. 

Porto's first defeat this season and biggest ever home defeat in Europe. Highest scoring team in the competition, we have three of the top five scorers in the whole competition in our team, and a the new record win by an English club in the knockout stages of the CL.

Third in the league and through to the CL QF's for the first time in a decade.

One of the good things about things about last night is that it makes the second leg almost a formality and allows us to rest some key players before going to Old Trafford a few days later. Would hope to see a front 3 featuring Solanke, Ings and one of Lallana or Chamberlain at home and also maybe even Woodburn getting some game time.

Hopefully Porto also see it as game over and play their first teamers against Sporting the weekend before and send some kids over.

Terrific display.
Porto no mugs, no matter how some suggested that they were. 2nd game on trot we nicked in front and then just utterly dominated the opposition.
Where do you start with the front three? Genuinely question whether you would swap them as a three for any other, worth debating for sure.
Sensational stuff, unstoppable when in form,fit and flying..

No passengers at all. Everyone 8,9,10..

Vvd a huge difference for me, huge. And will continue to improve as been injured a while, all the stuff in head over move, wait till fully settled and fit....

Another difference maker is Robertson, different class to Moreno, more energy, better defender and final ball, should be left back from now on for sure.

And finally cannot state how happy I am it finally seems the manager has decided Mignolet is not good enough, not before time.Karius has clocked it now too and genuinely hope he can really progress and improve with the confidence knowing he will be in goals.
