Liverpool will entertain FC Porto at Anfield after securing an emphatic 5-0 victory in Portugal in the first-leg. The fate of the tie is almost sealed in the home team’s favour so Jurgen Klopp can opt to make some changes for this clash. The Reds have been in sensational form in recent weeks and have won their last four matches in all competitions. They will look to continue their good goal-scoring run by earning another victory in front of their home supporters at Anfield.
FC Porto, on the other hand, will need to score early to have any chance of conjuring up a miracle comeback but it seems highly unlikely that it will be the case. The recent history of the fixture makes a grim reading for the visitors as they have never won against the Merseysiders in their history, winning three and drawing two of the previous five meetings with the Reds.
Jurgen Klopp is expected to opt for a 4-3-3 formation and has the luxury of resting some of his star players for this contest, with a crunch league encounter against Manchester United looming on the horizon.
4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup To Face FC Porto
Simon Mignolet is expected to return and resume his duties in goal while Loris Karius sits on the bench. The Belgian keeper might be shielded by a backline of Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan in central defence while Alberto Moreno starts in the left-back position and Joe Gomez takes his place on the right-hand side of the backline.
Both Trent Alexander-Arnold and Dejan Lovren could be in line to start on the Liverpool bench. Klopp will be hoping his back four can keep another clean sheet versus the Portuguese giants after securing three clean sheets in their last four matches across all competitions.
The trio of James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Georginio Wijnaldum might be unleashed at the centre of the park and the performance of these players will be integral if Liverpool are to break down the FC Porto defence at Anfield.
Emre Can and Jordan Henderson could be available on the bench for this clash versus Sérgio Conceição’s side.
The front three would consist of Dominic Solanke spearheading the Reds attack, Danny Ings looking to cause some damage on the right side while Adam Lallana tries to use his guile on the left flank. Roberto Firmino is expected to start on the bench and might come on during the match if required.
