Liverpool maintain their perfect record in the Champions League this season with a 2-0 win over Porto at Anfield.

Goals from Thiago Alcantara and Mohamed Salah helped Jurgen Kloop see off the struggling Porto side. 

Porto started the game Brightly, keeping Liverpool pinned back near the edge of the box for the opening few minutes. The makeshift side, understandably, looks a bit out of sorts, but they manage to ride out the early pressure without giving away any chance of note. The visiting side almost scored the opener as they created a two v one break on goal but placed the shot just wide (thanks, in part, to an iffy last-ditch challenge from Tsimikas). These Reds are living dangerously. Both sides continued to look for a goal as they headed to halftime.

The second half started with the English club looking sharp, and they got a goal early in the second half from a superb strike from Thiago Alcantara 30 yards out from the box. Salah, who was quiet for the better part of the game played a brilliant 1,2 ball with Henderson, then the Egyptian sent a defender the wrong way and beat the keeper to the near post. And that goal was his last touch of the match! Fabinho comes on in his place, and Sadio gets replaced by Divock Origi. 

Porto will be waiting for the final game week in their search to reach the last 16.
