Centre-back Alfie Mawson is expected to return to first-team action in late April, as the Englishman looks to recover from a knee injury, while second-choice goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli and Andre Schurrle are doubts for the weekend due to a knock and a virus respectively. "Porto were not on my wish list, but now they are our opponent, it is how it is and we have to play them", he said.
They are also competing for the club's first domestic league title since 1990, setting up a potentially glorious end to the season.
"I am really happy about the result and the fact that we are through. It helped us a lot for the game against Munich". "He's an outstanding player, it is unbelievable how he did", Klopp said of Matip.
Obviously when I was growing up Ashley Cole came in and showed that you don't have to just be a defender as a full-back.
"It is good that we split the goals a little bit, absolutely it's good".
"I am blessed to have known him for 14 years".
"Because that would mean one of them reaches the semi-final, and I think they are doing so, so well in the competition, it would be awesome for one of them and their countries".
