Klopp only planning a few changes for Porto


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will resist temptation to make widespread changes for the visit of FC Porto.

His side lead the tie 5-0 after the first leg three weeks ago in Portugal and are huge favourites to progress to the quarter final stage of the Champions League.

But Klopp will not rest too many players as he stays cautious in the second leg at Anfield on Tuesday evening, despite calls from some supporters for certain players to be left out ahead of the trip to play Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday.

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

“We will prepare ourselves for the game and we want to win the second half of the tie.

“If it is a different line-up to Saturday, it is only because we want to win.

“Maybe one, two, three changes but only to win the game.” he finished.

Sadio Mane scored a hat-trick in the away leg with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino grabbing the other two goals.
