Liverpool will return to the knockout stages of the Champions League for the first time since 2009 on Wednesday evening when they travel to play Porto.

James Pearce is in Portugal ahead of the clash as Reds boss Jurgen Klopp speaks to the media.

But Klopp is disinterested in comparisons between the current Liverpool side and their predecessors that achieved the improbable in Istanbul's Ataturk Stadium.

The Liverpool forward is having a superb season, having already scored 20 times with six coming in the Champions League.

"In the last few games, I have had more stuff to do and I have been able to make some saves, which gives you more confidence".

It makes no sense.

"I have no idea".

A regular fixture in Sergio Conceicao's defence, the versatile Spanish centre-back has not played since the Taca da Liga semi-final defeat to Sporting CP on 24 January due to a thigh problem, missing the goalless draw with Moreirense and subsequent wins over Braga, Sporting and Chaves. In this strong league, you can not be third without fantastic players. Only because I am a friendly person I answered a question. Only because we are live on television I haven't done it.

The Holland worldwide told Liverpoolfc.com: "The game will not be decided in one leg, it's over two legs".

"We should be OK more or less - pretty much the only one who is completely out of the game on the plane is Emre Can because of his suspension". The system will never win the game.

"He's a very important player and he doesn't always have to be the standout player".

"We need to keep going and they need to keep scoring for us, and as a team, we just need to keep keeping clean sheets".

Sources said they also argued that "everyone in the movement did not agree with a recall". Reuters news agency said Zuma's spokesman could not be immediately reached for comment.

I've not thought about it. "We are not too bad and we know that as well".

"No-one knows about the future. It is not for me to think about these things, I have to make a decision for tomorrow night", he said.

It feels good and everything is prepared. They are a mixture of football and fight, experience and youth, well organised and fluent.

"It is our job to deal with greater responsibility and I think we have done that so far".

The pair have 11 Champions League goals between them - only PSG's Edinson Cavani and Neymar have scored more - and only Real Madrid's Ronaldo (nine) scored more than Firmino's six in the group stage.

Asked whether he felt he belonged in such rarefied company Firmino added: "Of course I want to be at their level but I only focus on playing a good game".
