Jurgen Klopp: 'Liverpool can compete with anyone'

Very Confident of Knocking Liverpool Out, FC Porto Star Insists Klopp gives Karius No. 1 backing, with glove
Edward Snyder | 14 February, 2018, 19:57

Klopp's team face Porto in the first leg of their last-16 tie on Wednesday night, after topping their group before the turn of the year.

Firmino is enjoying the acclaim and responsibility of his growing status. "I am trying to give my maximum for the team and trying to be alongside these great players in Europe".

There is a caveat, of course.

However, Firmino has maintained his excellent form, scoring four goals and picking up three assists in his last six matches. The onus has shifted to the rest of the attack and Firmino has responded.

For Liverpool Egyptian magician Mohamed Salah will be their go to man, he has been unstoppable for the Reds ever since leaving Italy and recently became the fastest to score 20 goals for Liverpool in the Premier League.

"We're going to make Porto's life hard and make them suffer", said Brazilian Firmino. That's how it is. Systems are very important but only to bring players in their best positions. As often as he can be, that's good. I think now he has really settled and is performing at a much higher level than he was at the beginning. Usually if someone asks about the next round I leave the room immediately.

"I have no idea. But people with a football brain judge him right".

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

"Nobody wants to play against Porto".




The team have already overcome one significant hurdle in reaching the knockout phase for the first time in nine years.

"PSG is a little different, but I don't look at them, I know it already (we can compete with them)".

Liverpool have been scintillating going forward this season - only Manchester City have scored more than them in the Premier League - but a leaky defence has prevented them mounting a serious title challenge.

Advantageously, the second leg of the tie will be played at Anfield, allowing Liverpool to set themselves up nicely, if they were to get a decent result in Porto. "That is how it is and we have to take it seriously".

"If they did, it would really surprise me".

Does that happen a lot in the Champions League?

He said: "I don't think the 2005 side thought about this before the last 16 round". It's about the players and their decision making and doing the right thing in the right moment, throwing your heart on the pitch giving everything you have. In fact, I hate it.

Joking to underline his point, Klopp added: "Only because I am a friendly person I answer the question, because we are in public".
