Liverpool’s Sadio Mane named PFA Fans’ Player of the Month

Keita put in arguably his best performance in a red shirt since joining in the summer and after a hard settling-in period appears to be fulfilling the faith Jurgen Klopp placed in him in agreeing a deal with RB Leipzig 12 months before he actually arrived.

Around the fifth minute, Firmino found Keita in space at the edge of the Porto box. The Brazilian lays it off to Keita and his effort takes a wicked deflection off Torres and nestles in the net.

And the home side was celebrating again 20 minutes later when a superbly-weighted Jordan Henderson through-ball found Trent Alexander-Arnold overlapping down the right flank, who centered for Firmino who, just onside, tapped home from four yards out.

He then dribbled the ball forward and won a free-kick. Porto will try to strike back.

Klopp was fortunate that he will be able to call on Mohamed Salah in Portugal as the Egyptian was fortunate to escape without punishment for a misjudged tackle on Porto full-back Danilo.

All in all, a comfortable and professional job by Liverpool.

Here's how we rated the Liverpool players.

Xherdan Shaqiri is back from injury and was on the bench against the Saints which means the Swiss could be used as a second-half substitute against Porto on Tuesday. His kicking was slightly off radar. "It is part of the game".

So I was glad I was able to see them before I got a locker room". "It's the way they've always played since Arike's been there". Baylor responded to the challenge by exploiting their size advantage inside and clamping down on defense in the fourth quarter.

The winger has notched eight goals and 14 assists from 40 appearances for Lyon this season.

His positioning was wrong at times, but the recovery defending was pretty good.

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk says he voted for Manchester City's Raheem Sterling to be named PFA player of the year. A much better performance from the Brazilian compared to Friday.

Liverpool made the final of the Champions League last season and the squad is mostly unchanged so the players will be accustomed to the pressures that this match will present. Some of his passing was exquisite, let alone the one that opened up Porto in the build-up to the second goal.

It has been a season where he has struggled and there were doubts, but the Guinea global is now coming to the fore at just the right time.

Jurgen Klopp won't say it to anyone, but he's really hoping for a huge win that nearly guarantees a place in the semifinal.

Chance! How did Salah miss that? Slightly lucky to not even get a booking for a challenge late on. Divock Origi could be signed to a new deal and Rhian Brewster is highly thought of but the club want adequate cover for the wide forwards.

"They have got lucky in a few games recently, especially against Tottenham, but they are also showing a real desire to win football matches and that is what teams that win trophies can do", he added.
