21:30 Both teams warming up...

21:15 It is understandable Klopp enters the game with an eye on his upcoming Premier League fixture with Manchester United at the weekend.

21:00 In midfield, Klopp continues with Henderson, Can and Milner.  

20:45 Mohamed Salah starts on the bench, with Klopp preferring to start with an attack comprised of Mane, Firmino and Lallana 

Starting lineups: 

Liverpool: Karius, Gomez, Matip, Lovren, Moreno, Henderson, Milner, Can, Lallana, Mane, Firmino 

Porto: Casillas; Maxi Pereira, Felipe, Reyes, Diogo Dalot, Óliver, André André, Bruno Costa, Corona, Waris e Aboubaka

20:00 It remains to be seen whether Klopp would rest any of his key players, with Liverpool all but qualified for the next round. 

18:00 Salah has scored in Liverpool's last seven games in all competitions. His goal tally includes nine goals in the Champions League so far this season. 

17:30 Liverpool's red-hot winger Mohamed Salah was on target in the 5-0 first-leg win, scoring a brilliant goal. He is expected to start tonight. 

16:30 The Premier League club are virtually through to the quarter-finals after their dominant performance in Portugal but Klopp said they cannot afford to relax.

15:30 Klopp expects a strong reaction from Porto in Tuesday’s Champions League last-16 second leg at Anfield and will not make wholesale changes despite enjoying a 5-0 lead.

15:00 "If anybody here thinks they come here and give the game up, leave their star players at home or whatever they are mistaken. It's Champions League and the whole world is watching. What do you think?," the coach added.

14:00 "They will strike back, that's what they want. They are Portuguese and proud and will give a fight. They want to strike back.

14:00 "It's not about rest. Porto have won all their games since we played them," Klopp said.

13:00 Liverpool's 5-0 win in Porto last month virtually guaranteed them a spot in the Champions League quarter-finals but manager Juergen Klopp says he will pick a strong team for the return leg on Tuesday despite a trip to Manchester United looming at the weekend.
