Porto vs Liverpool teams: Firmino, Keita and Henderson benched by Klopp, Origi, Milner and Wijnaldum start Champions League second leg

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has made three changes to his team for their Champions League quarter-final second leg at Porto, a game you can listen to live on talkSPORT, kick-off 8pm.

Club captain Jordan Henderson and forward Roberto Firmino have rather surprisingly been named on the bench, while Naby Keita fails to keep his place from their win over Chelsea on Sunday.

James Milner, Georginio Wijnaldum and Divock Origi have been given the nod as the Reds look to build on their 2-0 win at Anfield in the first leg and reach the last four of the competition.

Elswhere, Joe Gomez is in the matchday squad as he makes his recovery from a broken leg sustained in December.

Unsurprisingly, the hosts have named a strong team as they look to overturn their two-goal deficit which sees midfielder Hector Herrera and ex-Real Madrid defender Pepe return.
