Midfielder Thiago Alcantara's excellent strike helped Liverpool on the way to a 2-0 victory over Porto and a record Champions League group stage points haul.

The Spain midfielder's sweetly-struck low half-volley early in the second half was worthy of winning any game and the fact it came in a dead-rubber having already qualified for the last-16 should not diminish the quality of the goal.

In adding a second Liverpool became the first English top-flight side in 82 years to score two or more goals in 16 consecutive matches.

While the 30-year-old Thiago was impressing a fellow midfielder 11 years his junior was enjoying his Champions League debut.

Not much was going right at the other end for Liverpool either as when Costa's hurried clearance rebounded off Mane Salah was unable to get enough power on his shot to trouble the goalkeeper.

Mohamed Salah scored for the fourth time in three meetings against the Portuguese club to take his personal Champions League tally to 32 with Steven Gerrard's European record of 41 well within his sights.

Klopp's changes did not help their early cohesion and Porto, with much more to play for, immediately seized the initiative but failed to take advantage due to some poor finishing and good defensive work from Morton and Oxlade-Chamberlain.
