Sadio Mane: Liverpool motivated to win Premier League

Having survived three scares in quick succession, Liverpool then squandered the chance to kill the first leg off inside 34 minutes when Keita and Henderson combined to tee up Firmino, who tried to guide his half-volley into the top corner but narrowly missed the target.

While the prospect of an all-English final is still possible, there is no chance of two all-English semi-finals, as the victor of the match between Tottenham and Manchester City is certain to face a side from the continent.

He added: "These two legs are like a normal game".

DF Virgil van Dijk, 7 - Typically composed and commanding. "I care about the team we play". Everybody has a stadium. Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva provide attacking contributions that Liverpool's midfielders simply aren't capable of.

SunSport however report that the Premier League outfit are hoping they can replace Mane with the Dutch striker ahead of next season.

Perhaps Guardiola was showing off his pragmatic streak after City's loss to Liverpool at this stage of the competition last season.

They remain on course to repeat last season's run to the final after beating Bayern Munich in the last round.

As of writing, the market lists Liverpool as -470 favorites to advance to the semifinal while Porto can be found at +380 to pull off the upset.

Roberto Firmino, provider for the first goal, got on the scoresheet after netting a tap-in from a Trent Alexander-Arnold cross.

The second leg will be played in Porto's Estádio do Dragão on April 17, with the victor playing either Manchester United or FC Barcelona for a spot in the final.

"We hammered them 5-0 at home and went through so easily, but we drew then the following years and they knocked us out".

"That would possibly clear the way just to concentrate on that league". With a squad lacking reinforcements in the previous year due to stadium building costs, they are third in the league, but only a point ahead of fifth-placed Chelsea.

It says a lot for Porto when Eder Militao is heading for Real Madrid after just one season.

Liverpool have taken control of their Champions League quarter-final tie with Porto courtesy of a 2-0 victory in the first leg at Anfield this evening.

The Reds played against Southampton in their last match which they won 3-1 away from home.

To be exact, Liverpool are 37 games unbeaten at Anfield.

The 27-year-old has helped Liverpool to a two-point lead atop the Premier League table, though City have a game in hand.
