Klopp expects Porto backlash


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is expecting FC Porto to come out fighting on Tuesday evening.

The Portuguese champions will be sore from their 5-0 defeat in the first leg of the last sixteen Champions League tie and Klopp is expecting them to come looking for revenge at Anfield.

“If I would be in the situation I would want to see a real reaction from my team.” he said.

“Their manager will be very lively and push his team.

“It’ll be a tough job for us.

“We will have to play very, very well to win the game.” he finished.

Klopp will resist the opportunity to rest some of his key players ahead of Saturday’s trip to face rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford despite holding such a big advantage.

“We respect Porto too much and we respect the competition too much to think about real rotation.” he said.

“I haven’t made decision so far. We don’t rotate to avoid something, we just use the players who are in the best shape.

“We won’t rest players but maybe we will make one, two or three changes, but only to win the game.” he finished.
