      Just hope we don’t go in with the wrong mentality

      nah would you want to come off the pitch at half time knowing you had to face an angry Jürgen ?

      Porto: Iker Casillas, Felipe, Eder Militão, Alex Telles, Maxi Pereira, Otávio, Óliver Torres, Jesús Manuel Corona, Danilo Pereira, Tiquinho Soares, Moussa Marega

      Key player Telles is fit to start, captain Hector Herrera is suspended.

      Ahh, was really hoping Telles wouldn't be starting.

      Good line up, no surprise Lovren starts, Matip looked like he had a sketchy game vs Saints and has been playing every game recently so makes sense to freshen it up. Great to see Gomez back on the bench and even better to see Moreno nowhere near even the bench. Just a matter of time now until Gomez slots back in alongside Virgil.

      Think the team pretty much picked itself tonight. Hopefully Shaqiri gets some game time.

      Not keen on changing the back four too much but hopefully degsy can settle in and milly can give a bit of the thrust that we will miss without robbo

      just need to pinch ourselves. Here we are top of the EPL and the qtr finals of the CL it doesn't get better than this.....well it does actually a place in the Semi and 5 points clear of City when Palace beat them .

      Great lineup.

      Makes perfect sense to start Lovren. Give Matip a rest and get Lovren back playing some minutes. Also glad to see Gini get a break, he needs it.

      Look forward to the game. Stayed home so i can watch it and we should undoubtedly win today. Not that i am all that familiar with Porto but i don't think they have the team to come into Anfield and put in the kind of patient, away performance that Bayern did when they stifled us.

      That team should have plenty to beat Porto if we play well.

      Shout out to Clint as well.
      Love your work fella, and that OP is one of your best.
      Great stuff.

      Enjoy the match folks.

      Feeling more confident about this now I’ve seen the starting line up.
      Need the crowd to get behind everyone again tonight, make it another special and pinch an early goal to set the tone. 4:0 the red men 😜

      Now Salah has gained confidence after Friday. I expect him to destroy Porto like he destroyed Rome last season. :laugh: :laugh:

      Hopefully Lovren at the back won't be a concern as i expect us to dominate this game. Well happy with that midfield and am glad to see Jordan getting an opportunity to play the role he feels he has been denied. Big chance for him to show up here. Great to see Joe back on the squad sheet.

      Is there any position Milner can't play? No there isn't. A dying breed.

      I'm expecting a 4-0 minimum here. We have too much for them, even with Robbo and Gomez out.

      Lovren won't be a problem and we need to get him game time as cover for Virgil. I really don't have a problem with Dejan playing he is also someone who plays so much better alongside Virgil

      Only one negative for me Sturridge on the bench... Not that I can see us needing him.... Besides that very good starting 11 and bench ... 3-0

      Portugueee players are very technical. Lets not give them the space and time to create anything. Mark them tightly and be physical but fair and they will struggle. Lastly, lets not underestimate  them but strike fear into them.
