Porto coach Sergio Conceicao hailed Liverpool as the best team on the planet at times this season even as he tries to plot their downfall in the Champions League. "But my players aren't silly, they don't misunderstand this".

"When we play Man City, I don't say they have no clue about football or say it's the best team in the world".

Victory will see Liverpool make the last four for the second consecutive season, but Klopp expects Porto to be a "different animal" at the Estadio do Dragao. "From the first kick, they will go with a clear direction". It was really open until we were 2-0 up but you don't remember things like that.

Klopp reacted with something like confusion when Conceicao's assessment was put to him.

"Dejan had a bad night, the doctor was there and he had no chance to travel", said Klopp. "They know how to influence a game and influence an opponent and we have to be ready".

Porto captain Hector Herrera, who missed the first leg through suspension along with Pepe, is confident his side can turn the tie on its head tonight.

"Pepe and Herrera are coming back and they are key players", said the Klopp.

"Militao can play right full-back, which changes a lot for them".

The likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino appeared in very high spirits as they adapted to their new environment on Tuesday.

"The season is not finished in this competition". I didn't really like the game past year.

But the Portuguese champions overturned a 2-1 deficit against Roma in the last round when they beat the Italians 3-1 at home.

Sturridge and Origi will start on the bench and one of them might come on as a substitute if Liverpool manage to wrap up the tie early on.

Liverpool travel to Porto for the second time in two seasons, having blown the Portuguese champions away in the round of 16 a year ago, but both Klopp and Milner placed little significance on that 5-0 victory.

Liverpool FC haven't won the Champions League crown since 2005 when the Reds beat AC Milan on penalties.
