It's the morning after the night before and Ian Doyle, James Pearce and Theo Squires have overcome tiredness - and in our Liverpool FC correspondent's case, illness, despite his mid-season break - to record a mini Blood Red podcast to reflect on the 2-0 win over Porto. James believes the build-up to the match, and the match itself, underlines just how far the Reds have come under Jurgen Klopp while Ian and Theo agree the Portuguese champions were better than some pundits gave them credit for. But can Porto turn it around in the second leg? Our panel have their doubts, but they have no doubts about the improvement of Naby Keita, who set Liverpool on their way to victory with his second goal in as many matches. There's also words of praise for the captain, Jordan Henderson, and Roberto Firmino, while there is a discussion about whether Andy Robertson was missed, before James explain Klopp's rationale behind selecting Dejan Lovren. And, in a must-listen podcast, there's also VAR talk and whether Mohamed Salah got lucky. Enjoy.
