Andrew Robertson making the most of his opportunity to shine with Liverpool

Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp said Sadio Mane is finally back to his best after Liverpool thrashed Porto 5-0.
Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp said Sadio Mane is finally back to his best after Liverpool thrashed Porto 5-0.

Though Liverpool's forwards grab the headlines -- even Sadio Mane scored a hat trick at Porto last Wednesday -- another player is delighting the fans for different reasons.

Left-back was always a thorny position for the Reds. There have been poor players, like Andrea Dossena and Paul Konchesky; there have been unlucky players, like Fabio Aurelio and Jim Beglin. Even the most consistent of them, John Arne Riise, could infuriate at times with rare consensus over whether he was really a defender or...

Liverpool must take final step and deliver a trophy under Jurgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp gets annoyed when asked whether Liverpool are capable of emulating the 2004-05 squad that won the Champions League.
Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp hailed hat-trick hero Sadio Mane after Liverpool thrashed Porto 5-0 in the Champions League and said the winger is finally back to his best.
Sadio Mane made his mark, netting three of Liverpool's five goals in style against Porto.

Liverpool's magnificent 5-0 victory against Porto on Wednesday was one of the club's finest away performances in Europe ever.

It would take a brave man to use the word "embarrassing" to describe Liverpool this week. Enter Roy Keane. He used that word to describe the lack of modern trophy successes at Liverpool -- and Tottenham, too.

Some have been dismissive of the legendary midfielder by describing him as rent-a-curmudgeon, deliberately being provocative to goose up ratings for a terrestrial highlights...

Liverpool stars Mane, Salah, Firmino should unity beats individuals

Shaka Hislop and Mark Donaldson discuss what makes the Mane-Salah-Firmino partnership so effective and how they compare to other attacking trios around Europe.
Liverpool's pace and passing were on full display during this counterattack that led to their third goal against Porto.
Following their sound victory over Porto, the ESPN FC panel praise Liverpool and also discuss the state of Portuguese football.
Liverpool left no doubt that they are a force to be reckoned with in Europe by putting five past Porto in the Estádio do Dragão.

Wednesday night's Champions League action was a wonderful demonstration of the fact that football remains a team sport rather than an individual one, and that assembling the world's most talented footballers is no guarantee of making the world's most formidable side.

Contrast the two matches. In Madrid, Real ran out 3-1 winners over Paris Saint-Germain, but realistically neither side played impressive football, especially in the final third. There was too much speed and rather too little thought,...

Liverpool counter-attack perfectly suited for Champions League football

Following their sound victory over Porto, the ESPN FC panel praise Liverpool and also discuss the state of Portuguese football.
Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp hailed hat-trick hero Sadio Mane after Liverpool thrashed Porto 5-0 in the Champions League and said the winger is finally back to his best.

Champions League football clearly agrees with Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp's side completely dismantled FC Porto on Wednesday night and, although the Reds' boss is far too professional to declare the tie over, not even the most wildly optimistic Porto fan would give their side any hope of overcoming a 5-0 deficit at Anfield in three weeks' time.

Liverpool are now the top scorers in the competition, having overtaken PSG: in seven games they have plundered 28 goals. They score plenty domestically too,...

Liverpool star Sadio Mane reveals Jamie Carragher inspiration

Sadio Mane has revealed a timely interjection from a Liverpool legend was enough to spur him on to score three goals in Wednesday night's 5-0 thrashing of Porto in the Champions League.

The Senegal winger managed to get his name on the scoresheet early as the Reds went in 2-0 ahead at the break.

However, while making his way down the tunnel, Mane received some stellar advice from none other than Jamie Carragher, who was stationed at pitchside while working for Norwegian broadcasters Viasport.

"He...

Mane's brilliance shines through with hat trick as Liverpool crush Porto

Liverpool left no doubt that they are a force to be reckoned with in Europe by putting five past Porto in the Estádio do Dragão.
Sadio Mane made his mark, netting three of Liverpool's five goals in style against Porto.
Following their sound victory over Porto, the ESPN FC panel praise Liverpool and also discuss the state of Portuguese football.

Liverpool brilliantly put their Portuguese opponents to the sword with a 5-0 victory. Porto will need a miracle to even make this a close tie in the second leg.

Positives

Excellent performances from virtually every player. There was a persistence and discipline in the second half, when many fans may have feared a traditional collapse. Their place in the quarterfinals is almost certainly guaranteed.

Negatives

Only in the subsequent appreciation of their performance. Many might well assume Porto...
