Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confessed that his team needed luck on their side to see off Porto on Wednesday.

"We could have lost this game tonight," he admitted (via the club's official website).

Second-half goals from Thiago and Mohamed Salah secured a relatively comfortable 2-0 victory for Liverpool, but the Portuguese league leaders had plenty of chances themselves against the second-string defence of Kostas Tsimikas, Ibrahima Konate, Joel Matip and Neco Williams.

After the game, Klopp acknowledged that he expected some nervy moments because of the amount of rotation in his lineup, but confessed that they needed a bit of good fortune to keep a clean sheet.

You just know we have to grow into the game and that's happened actually – that's what I'm happy about.

It is just then the amount of games coming up, we need them all really in kind of a rhythm and that’s why the line-up really made really tonight.

"We gave chances away where they could have scored and that would have made the game obviously really difficult, so we should not make too much of it.
