UEFA Champions League

Salah, Van Dijk and Mane train with Liverpool ahead of Porto Clash- in pictures

Reds manager Klopp has decisions to make on team with top spot already secured in Champions League Group B.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said he will be naming a strong Liverpool side for the champions League game against Porto, despite his team having already secured top spot in Group B.

Liverpool qualified with two matches to spare by beating Atletico Madrid in their last group game and are about to enter a relentless playing schedule of 12 games in 40 days in all competitions.

But Klopp insists he cannot make wholesale changes as it upsets the "rhythm" of his team. We cannot play football games with this line - up which has no chance to win a game, then bring them back again", Klopp said.

Jurgen Klopp has said that Jordan Henderson and Andy Robertson who both trained with the squad on Tuesday ' are " ready to play" if called upon, but also said no risks will be taken.

" We always respect the competition but we have to think about ourselves and our schedule and the situation of our players first", added the German.

Porto are in second place in the group, a point before Atletico Madrid and four before Ac Milan.
