  • Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool won't understimate Porto AFP

Since then they have replaced goalkeeper Loris Karius with one of the world's best, Alisson.

"For the owners, the holy grail is the Champions League", former City defender Danny Mills told Sky Sports.

Kovac disagrees with Lewandowski's assessment, however, and believes that Bayern were simply beaten by the better team.

"For the top stars, it's just more appealing to go to the Premier League than to Bundesliga".

Bayern Munich coach Niko Kovac gives instructions to Franck Ribery during the match against Liverpool at the Allianz Arena in Munich March 13, 2019.

Liverpool's squad strengthening has allowed them to establish parity with a Manchester City side who ran away with the title a year ago in record-breaking fashion.

Liverpool performed really well in the game, they managed the game really well.

"You saw after the second goal how much quality they have", the Croatian said.

The Reds supporters are very confident indeed that they can get past Porto and while it bears repeating that there are no easy games in the Champions League, it's easy to understand why they're so pleased.

The 51-year-old German wants to focus on developing the players he already has at his disposal, after Alisson, Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri all arrived at Anfield in the summer.

Of the seven Champions League finals prior to that Didier Drogba-inspired win, only once was no English side involved.

Despite all the focus on Manchester City chasing a quadruple, Liverpool are still pursuing a Premier League-Champions League double - something not achieved since Manchester United managed it in 2008 - and with Van Dijk in such peerless form, you can not write them off.

"There's no doubt Salah hasn't been at his best, but they need help from midfield". Barcelona have never lost a Champions League tie when Messi has scored.

"You can't imagine how (little) I'm interested in that".

But now that the Dutch worldwide is back in the top flight, he thinks he knows information on van Dijk that nobody else has been able to pull together - which is incredible, really, considering the vast scouting and analytics beast that modern football has become.
