Firmino: Liverpool will make life hard for Porto

It was another decade, another time.

What time is the Champions League game between FC Porto and Liverpool?

Porto's leading scorer Vincent Aboubakar is doubtful for their Champions League match at home to Liverpool, coach Sergio Conceicao said on Tuesday. But that does not appear to be the case now. And yet it is not impossible.

Jurgen Klopp will be hoping to have Joe Gomez available again.

But there is an element that renders Liverpool unsafe outsiders.

However, the defeat means the Saints moved back into the relegation zone as other teams around them such as Huddersfield Town, Newcastle and Swansea City all picked up important wins.

"They play good football but we'll go over there determined to get a good result in the first leg", Karius said of Wednesday's match. PSG is a little bit different but I don't look at them, I know it already that, if we meet them, we could beat them. Consider it from a Liverpool angle, however, and it offers grounds for optimism. They've scored numerous goals this season where they've gone from one end of the field to the other to score in 10 seconds.

And that is unaffected by their January sale. They will be coming into the game high on confidence having recently dismantled Chaves 4-0 in the league. Summer signing Mohammed Salah has been imperious so far and the Egyptian attacker will be looking to add to his six goals scored in the Champions League this season. Sadio Mane has been less potent this season but his past is illuminated with demonstrations he can eviscerate elite defences.

After making the top four last season and returning to European football's top table, it was always going to be interesting to see how they would balance the demands of domestic and champions league football.

It was put to Klopp that no-one fancied the Reds side which won in Istanbul in 2005 after scraping through the group stage with a last-gasp win over Olympiacos. The system will never win the game. Reaching the final of the Europa League in 2016 gave them a taste.

Mignolet, the 29-year-old Belgium worldwide, joined Liverpool from Sunderland in 2013 and said last month that Karius becoming Klopp's first choice will require him to re-examine his future at Anfield.

A capacity to overwhelm has been apparent on the continental stage. Liverpool's failure to compete at this level consistently has only made them less intimidating and served to encourage their opponents.
