Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has praised his players for getting the job against Porto, as they made it through to the quarter-final stage of the Champions League.
Liverpool headed into Tuesday night’s second with a 5-0 lead from the reverse fixture, all but killing off the tie before the match at Anfield.

Despite failing to find a way past Porto on Merseyside, Klopp was more than happy with his side’s professional display.
“We did the job and that was it tonight,” he told BT Sport. “It wasn’t the most exciting game but we controlled it, had a few chances, got a clean sheet and gave some boys some minutes. I am pretty sure it is rare to have a game like this in the knockout stages.
“We needed to be serious and we were so all good. Of course, we want to win two games at this stage. When you watch the game you always think ‘oh come on, a little bit more here or there’ but they did well and it is all good. The attitude was outstanding.”
