Liverpool won convincingly with five goals to nil scoreline. Klopp will know that the early exchanges were less one-sided, and it took a goalkeeping error from Sá to give Liverpool the lead against Porto, Mane getting a strike away which should never have slipped under the keeper on the 24th minute.
Four minutes later Salah marked his 30th goal for the club in his debut season but controlling a Milner rebound off the post and dancing over Sá before tapping home.
The Egyptian national team coach will hope this incredible form carries over into Russia this summer.
As Porto pushed on in the second half, they were always leaving themselves exposed and it didn’t take long for Liverpool’s trio to demonstrate.
In the 52nd minute, Porto found themselves committed in the opposition half and as they were dispossessed, quick thinking and passing saw Salah break, recieve back a subline backheel pass from Firmino and when the Brazilian was fed again, his saved shot fell to Mane who stroked home cleanly.
The game felt over but a smart finish from Firmino off a Milner cut back, and a sweet strike from the hat-trick hero made fans from both teams sense that the Last 16 tie has also been put to bed.
