KARIUS vs MIGNOLET

18:55: Shaun Goater doesn’t really care which goalkeeper Jurgen Klopp selects, he just wants the German to pick one and stick with it!

The pair have both received criticism for their performances from fans and pundits but Goater does not think they have been helped by being rotated so often.

“Both keepers are thinking ‘am I No 1?’ I think if there is a definitive ‘I’m No 1, I play Champions League and I play Premier League’ then I think the situation would be resolved and you would get the performances,” Goater said.

Karius gets the nod this evening. Goater will be pleased…

TWITTER ROUND-UP

Calvin: It’s been 9 long years since we last reached the knock out stages of the Champions League, hopefully never have to wait that long again. Seriously buzzing for this game tonight!

Harry: If Dejan Lovren scores and keeps a clean sheet tonight I’ll dedicate my account to him for a month.

Charlotte: Good strong team that! I thought Matip looked dodgy on Sunday so a good shout to give Lovren a shot! Karius was class Sunday and deserves to be number 1.

TEAM NEWS – LIVERPOOL

18:45: Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp makes three changes from the side who beat Southampton 2-0 at the weekend.

Jordan Henderson and James Milner replace Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Emre Can, who drop to the bench.

There’s also a change in defence as Dejan Lovren comes in for Joel Matip. Not sure why you would change a new partnership that just kept a clean sheet, but there you go.

GOOD EVENING

18:30: Someone pass the Lemsip…

My throat still hurts from screeching the Champions League theme at the top of my lungs yesterday.

So I’ll be taking a night off from shattering my colleagues’ eardrums to bring you all the latest as Liverpool look to topple Porto at the Estadio do Dragao.

Yes, Estadio do Dragao translates to Dragon Stadium in English. Grrrrr.

Anyway, Jurgen Klopp’s side are playing in the knockout stages of the Champions League for the first time since 2008/09.

And will hope to come away with a results against a side who’ve never beaten them in four competitive meetings.

Let’s have some team news…
