"It will be a massive game-one of the biggest games in Europe".
All the hype this season, and deservedly so, has been for Liverpool's attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane. PSG's ambitious club motto of "Dream Bigger" should perhaps now be revised.
Liverpool last won the coveted trophy in 2005.
"We want to finish in second place in the Premier League, we're in the Champions League quarter-finals and we want to progress". The 5-time winners had last advanced to the quarterfinals in the 2008/09 season after defeating Los Blancos 5-0 over aggregate, but were then knocked out after domestic rivals Chelsea defeated them 7-5 over the two legs. Hopefully it's only the beginning.
Picked for an under-23 match last month, Lallana was sent off for grabbing an opponent by the neck - clearly angry at being the subject of some hard tackles.
His strength and powerful running made it difficult for the Porto players to nick the ball off him.
Salah was given 15 minutes to find the winner when he replaced Mane.
"Manchester United are very experienced and very fit, as we saw last night - they can score late, so I don't think they are too worried about playing on Saturday and then again on Tuesday". "We tried but we couldn't do it". "Now we have to build with him". He had netted twice in the first leg. I want to develop more, get better every week and have good games for the club.
"We respect Porto too much and we respect the competition too much to think about real rotation", the German said. "It wasn't our best game but we didn't concede again, so that's a good point for everyone".
Far from giving it a go, they seemed determined not to be humiliated further.That made Liverpool's ultimate aim of progression easier still but at least the Portuguese saved some face and the great Iker Casillas left Champions League football with a clean sheet and the applause of another great European stadium ringing in his ears.
Was solid in his role today and protected his back-line well. "He sees the quality of the team is good".
"[There's] good development in Liverpool at the moment, it's a nice moment".
Banners around the ground encouraged the team and some fans had already taken matters into their own hands.
Meanwhile, Jordan Henderson suffered a dead leg during the game, but the Liverpool captain told BT Sport that he would be "fine".
But all this bluster seemed more like bluff.
The former England midfielder took matters into his own hands early in the second half but sliced horribly wide.
