Porto may not have recognised the entire Liverpool lineup but the feeling of deflation against Jürgen Klopp’s team was all too familiar.

Klopp rested players, reinvigorated players and was rewarded with a fifth successive win that brought Liverpool their highest ever points rally in a Champions League group stage.

The substitute returned the ball inside to Salah, who swept inside Uribe and beat Costa at his near post with an emphatic finish.

Porto lost veteran defender Pepe to injury shortly after Liverpool’s first real threat on goal, Konaté sending a free header from Minamino’s corner straight at Diogo Costa, and the threat from Klopp’s team gradually improved as Salah and Sadio Mané came into the contest.

Thiago Alcântara opened the scoring with an immaculate strike before Mohamed Salah registered for the 17th time this season, and sixth time in the Champions League, as Liverpool continued to make light work of a group of European heavyweights.

Liverpool were denied the lead by a tight offside call when Thiago released Mané through a generous gap in the Porto defence shortly before the interval.

Liverpool doubled their advantage when Salah, rolling Porto left-back Zaidu Sanusi with ease as they pursued a long ball out of defence, backheeled into the path of Henderson.
