Jurgen Klopp has said that his Liverpool side were not as calm at the back as they could have been in their 2-0 win over Porto, but put this down to rotation and praised his side's desire to win.

We scored two exceptional goals, especially Thiago's - wow!"

He's a good player and I'm pleased he could put a performance like this in."

The Reds secured top spot in Group B on matchday four while Porto travelled to Anfield knowing a win would boost their chances of also reaching the knockout stages.

Speaking with BT Sport post-game, Klopp admitted his makeshift backline of Neco Williams, Ibrahima Konate, Joel Matip and Kostas Tsimikas could have defended better, but was pleased with the efforts the team put in as a whole.

I've been in the business long enough where I would not throw a player in the game if I think he's not ready for it," Klopp added.

19-year-old Tyler Morton made his first start for Liverpool in midfield after featuring in brief cameos already this season, and Klopp was impressed with how he dealt with the occasion.
