Liverpool v Porto: team news

Liverpool midfielder James Milner has resumed training ahead of Porto’s visit after a hamstring injury that sidelined him for a month.

Andy Robertson and Divock Origi were also in attendance after missing Saturday’s win over Arsenal.

With qualification for the final 16 already secured, the Reds will look to let a number of players rest, which could mean departures for Ibrahima Konate, Takumi Minamino and Origi, among others.

Diogo Jota, Naby Keita and James Milner have had injury issues recently and will therefore likely be rested.

For Porto, Ivan Marcano is injured in the foot while his compatriot Pepe is uncertain.

Liverpool v Porto: what has been said?

Klopp will make player welfare the top priority ahead of the Champions League home game against Porto, but believes he can still select a team that respects the competition.

“We always respect the competition but first we have to think about ourselves, our schedule and the situation of our players,” he said.

“At this time of the season, the medical department has a big hand in the rosters.

“It’s really easy to sit there, all of you judging us, and say ‘leave it out, leave it out, leave it out.’

“If we leave them all out and play with a team that is not a Champions League team – we don’t have enough players for that, by the way – then nobody can get hurt.

“We have to field a team that has a chance to win a football match. The Diogo situation was very unlucky. I hated it, that I made the decision.

“But would I have made the same decision again?” This is the only question I have to answer. Yes, I would do it again, because it takes stability.

“We can’t play soccer games with this lineup, then then a squad that has no chance of winning a game, and then bring them back again.

“Players need rhythm, all that stuff. Am I making the decision because I don’t care who gets injured in the lineup tomorrow?

“No, I can’t and I won’t. These things happen in football. Hopefully nothing happens tomorrow.
