Liverpool Inflict Heavy Defeat On Mourinho’s Porto

Posted by

Liverpool continued to lead their Champions League group after a thrashing of Porto.
Jurgen Klopp’s team performed admirably throughout, maintaining their perfect record in the competition.

Mohamed Salah’s prodded finish got them to the Estadio do Dragao, which proved to be a joyful hunting ground once more. And, with recent victories of 4-1 and 5-0 fresh in their minds, they put on a show that was filled with pace, precision, and enthusiasm.

With the Reds wearing black armbands to commemorate the loss of Roger Hunt, Sadio Mane extended their lead with a back-post tap-in on the stroke of half-time, and Salah – their modern-day equivalent – added his second with a perfect finish into the bottom right corner.

Mehdi Taremi’s header gave the hosts hope, but Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino scored the fourth goal, leaving home goalkeeper Diogo Costa alone after a disastrous charge up the pitch in an attempt to clear.

Late in the game, the Brazilian completed a rout by pouncing on a rebound from Curtis Jones’ shot.
