Firmino wants Liverpool to make Porto suffer

Posted February 17, 2018

Captain Jordan Henderson insists Liverpool are greater than the sum of their parts and that is why they can absorb the loss of Philippe Coutinho. If they did, it would really surprise me and I can ask Rafa [Benitez].

"We knew we would create chances going forward [without Coutinho], but it was about the team".

"He said he took pleasure in a meeting of two "historical" clubs €" Porto have won Europe's top club competition twice and Liverpool have lifted the trophy five times, most recently in Istanbul in 2005 when Rafa Benitez was in charge.

He went on to explain that "you have a draw like Tottenham, you think, "OK, like before" but the only thing you can do is to win your games". If we are in the final then I'll say we will try to win it but that is too far off.

"I thought we started the game really well, very aggressive, very courageous".

"I think probably the strongest football team in this moment in Europe is Manchester City and we played them twice already at the highest level (they lost the first encounter 5-0 after having Sadio Mane sent off in the first half)". I don't like talking about the round after the round you are playing, in fact I hate it.

Firmino and Salah in particular had been in fine form leading into the match, with the Egyptian scoring in each of his last four appearances across all competitions before the trip to Porto.

"It is good when they don't talk about us".

"Only because I am a friendly person, I answer the question and because we are in public".

There were a total of 11 goals in Porto's last two UEFA Champions League home games.

Shelling out an incredible £142 million for the 25-year-old, the Catalan giants made Liverpool an offer they simply couldn't refuse.
