Champions League: Liverpool beats Porto, Tottenham edges Manchester City

Owen was impressed with the manner of Liverpool's display and does not believe there is a team in Europe who would beat them at Anfield now.

Spurs went on to win the game 1-0 courtesy of a second-half goal from Son Heung-min.

"The progress they have made over the last couple of years leads me to believe they will finish this season with a trophy because it will be very tough for Manchester City to go through these final six weeks of the season without slipping up".

"We deserved the win, 100 per cent, we scored two wonderful goals and we were - in a lot of situations - really risky, on the right side especially with Mo, Hendo and Trent, the crosses and the passes".

Technically gifted and forward-thinking, expectations were significant after a brilliant spell at RB Leipzig, but he has struggled to hold down a regular place in Jurgen Klopp's team.

Porto will likely be content with a scoreline that keeps them in with a chance, having been dealt a 5-0 beating by Liverpool on their own patch in last season's competition.

"This game takes me back to my days as a player and our two matches against CSKA Sofia and they serve as a warning for Liverpool now", Virgin Media Sport pundit Souness told us.

"We gave a few too many set pieces away - I think Porto score about 40% of their goals from set pieces. It was a really good performance". We also saw one or two counter attacks, but the rest of the game we played really well. I think if you look at Fab, it's quite natural to him, that's his position and he's so good at what you need to do in that position.

A Costa Mesa woman who was abducted in Uganda along with a driver on Tuesday has been freed, authorities said Sunday. Kidnappers demanded $500,000, but it's unknown how much was negotiated for the release.

Henderson is a naturally energetic player, at his best when he can go and close opponents down but being a holding midfielder for club and country has meant that he has had to add discipline and restraint to his game.

"We knew we had to play the second game and we can not decide the tie tonight, so now we have to go there and fight again".

"It was a bit stop start and we could have been better second half".

"Over there [in Porto for the second leg] they have big players back from suspension, we'll have one back".

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.

But the England midfielder is happy to play either role as long as he is helping the team.

"We deserved the win 100%", Klopp said. But the 90 minutes are over and we've got another 90 minutes at the Dragao. "But I'm sure we will be".
