Jurgen Klopp hailed Thiago Alcantara’s ‘thunderball’ goal as Liverpool made it five wins from five in the Champions League group stages against Porto.

“A lot of good things happened tonight but I’m not sure we should make the mistake of saying we are this or that again.



“We needed some luck in moments; they (Porto) came through and had big chances counter-attacking which were tricky to defend but didn’t score and we scored twice and controlled the game in the second half much better.” Despite there being nothing riding on the game for Liverpool, who had already qualified for the last 16, Klopp named a stronger-than-expected side with just four changes from Saturday’s win over Arsenal.



It was only the second time Thiago has found the net during a disrupted 14 months since arriving in a £20million move from Bayern Munich but it was a strike worthy of the wait.



“It worked out really well because no one got injured, so everything is good.” Liverpool have made a mockery of their so-called ‘Group of death’ with their 15-point haul a club record for the group stage but Klopp said now was not the time to assess just how well they were playing.

“We didn’t expect the boys to be a pressing machine immediately but to grow into the game and that’s what happened.

However, the night worked out perfectly as in addition to maintaining their 100 per cent record in the group stage he was able to manage his squad.
